What if...

What if there was an endless signal, blip-blip-blipping through space... And what if there was a little alien, in a little round ship, who latched onto that signal and followed it... relentlessly... on, on, on towards its distant source... taking us past a myriad of stars and galaxies, black holes and alien encounters?

Who is this alien being, and why is he following that signal so singlemindedly?... Is he lost?... Is he searching for home, for family, or friends?

And what of that strange signal... Is it a call for help, or a beacon of hope?... Maybe it's something more sinister... a trap, perhaps?... Or simply the residue of some lost event in a far distant galaxy?...
