Attack on Hephaestus

The fictional red super giant Pyre makes a return. Here is the Pyre system after it has settled down, formed an accretion disk, and made a ton of asteroids.

Here is Pyre 1 million years ago as it enters the nebula that would eventually form its accretion disk. Shown above.

Hephaestus (pronounced EEfess-toze) is the Greek god of metallurgy and fire! It is also the name given to the mining ship that is being blasted by that giant purple laser beam.
