THIS IS CETI ALPHA FIVE! Ceti Alpha Six exploded six months after we were left here. The shock shifted the orbit of this planet and everything was laid waste. Admiral Kirk never bothered to check on our progress. It was only the fact of my genetically-engineered intellect that allowed us to survive
I think Tau Ceti featured in Barbarella, but I can’t remember much more about it than Hanoi Jane’s naked breasts.
