Lem and her dog, Spock, have a late-night encounter with a stowaway.


’Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the Teapot…
Not a creature was stirring, not even a lonely robot;
The stockings were hung in the mess hall with care
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.

The truly universal magic of Christmas Eve

The Spirit of Christmas comes in many forms. Sometimes it's as the big, jolly older gentleman with the red suit and eight reindeer. But, on a spaceship several lightyears from Earth, maybe it could even be a small red suited, talking, balloon looking animal with four legs, and a white fur coat, and a bunch of tiny bots. Apparently distance and time really aren't a problem. Christmas Eve on the Teapot is about to get "interesting".

When Lem and Spock make new Christmassy friends

A short, sweet, and very teapotterly take on the classic poem.
