Ackroyd, sickened by the seemingly endless supply of freeze-dried ravioli that he himself requested to be sent along to eat, is trying to conduct routine wiring repairs despite his poor state of health. But this leads to mistakes, which leads to a critical emergency aboard the space station, now tumbling through orbit and out of contact with Earth. Foster conducts a spacewalk to repair the external antenna, but in the end, the crew’s only hope is…Bimbo the dog.
