    In Catalyst, award-winning authors Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Ann Scarborough introduced listeners to the beguiling Barque Cats: spacefaring felines who serve aboard starships as full-fledged members of the crew.

Other cats soon gain the same ability.

    Petaybee was growing up. Day by day the sentient planet was learning to recognize and understand the meaning of outside stimuli, to respond to those stimuli, to communicate its own needs and desires...even to use human speech. But few outsiders truly cared for the feelings and intelligence of what they perceived to be a giant hunk of rock or a mere oddity to be gawked at. Some came to worship the newly awakened soul.

On icy Petaybee, the planet itself seems to be orchestrating its own evolution - but the planet is also rich in exploitable resources, and the ruthless company Integral is poised to take advantage. Yana, an ex-company soldier with strong ties to the native Petaybeans - and the planet itself - tries to mediate with the company, but it isn't enough.
