On the first leg of their interstellar journey to find Squirky's birth parents, the little blue alien and his adoptive sister Emma arrive at the South Star. There they meet the beautiful but sad Queen Stella. She had been the one to warn the folks on Squirky's home planet of Q that the asteroid was coming. She can't stop crying because she feels guilty of not being able to warn them any earlier.
