Steve stands in the studio. He's slim, clean-shaven, in his fifties, with short curly brown hair. He's wearing a gray suit, white shirt, and blue tie.
A wall screen behind him reads "The week in review."
Music plays as an animated slate reads "The week in review."

Back in the ship, Zopzee appears on a screen.
Zopzee says I WOULD LIKE A PET MARMOT!

HUH? COME ON... PLEASE?

Zamzoom says NO WAY! THEY'RE SCRAPPY LITTLE
