Are You A Spider, Matt?

Avenue 5Marveling at the ever-present cloud of colorfully-ornamented human waste, Frank Kelly is certain he sees some of the waste configure itself briefly into the face of Pope John Paul II, and he even manages to convince others that they can see it too. Clark and Judd are a little bit uneasy with the notion that the passengers have declared that a miracle has taken place, but for the moment it seems to bring peace to the unruly crowd…with the exception of rich, litigious passenger Harrison Ames, whose threats to sue Judd over the trip’s nonstop problems have become the bane of Judd’s existence. Even a free round of VR golf does little to put Ames in a better mood. Judd’s solution: Clark should invite Ames to dine at the captain’s table, charming him into not suing. But just before dinner, Clark himself is server with divorce papers from Earth, robbing him of his usual charm. On Earth, Rav Mulcair finds herself on the receiving end of a very public backlash, and makes plans to sneak aboard a resupply shuttle leaving soon to rendezvous with Avenue 5, while at the same time, Billie talks Clark into an improvised plan to shed weight and push the ship forward, shaving significant time off the return journey.
