This illustration was drawn for a scene that, regrettably, was cut from the final version of the story. Below is the finished version, with text from the original story.

"Javert reared up, put his forepaws on the arm of Kit's chair, and arched his back as if to start humping. Kit's curse was muffled by the soft fur on Javert's chest. Kit shoved hard against Javert's fore-shoulders; reaction sent Kit and his wheeled office chair spinning away to crash into the second row of consoles. 'Am I gonna have to get the fire hose?' Kit demanded as he dragged his chair back up to the console- the centermost in the first of two rows- and set the video's time index back about ten seconds. Javert giggled and tossed his head coquettishly. Kit glared and threatened silently with a clenched fist."

Preliminary sketch for above drawings. I wanted the console tops to slope more gently and according to the original text Javert was standing beside Kit's chair, not behind it. Also of note is that this is the very first story-inspired picture, ever!

Kit and Liska alone in the Operations Center, from Chapter 2. I just love Kit's apprehensive expression as he reacts to Liska's somewhat over-friendly advances.

The riveted metal didn't fit with my vision of Sigma 17's interiors, so Terry replaced wit with a 'techno' look inspired by the TV show "Space: 1999." I loved that show and I love his background, too.

Three characters for the price of one. The new, more busty Liska, Chakat Snowflake, and newborn Star. (Apparently Snowflake doesn't approve of being posed next to Liska "the doorknob.")
