Reg Bear and his fellow rebels have a ship called the Honeycomb-- because of all the hexagonal passageways, of course! But I confess that I didn't figure that out until I saw the very charming illos. In the first story, the bears must take the ship back to the bee creatures who made it for repairs. Fortunately the bees are much friendlier than the Altas were.
This isn't exactly Season 2, though. In addition to Blake, Avon, Vila, and Cally bears, also present are Dayna, Tarrrant and Soolin bears, while Jenna and Gan are missing; they show up in the second book. The villains are Servalan and Travis. My guess is that the Jenna and Gan bears had not yet been designed when the first book was written, but they were available by the time of the second. They show up just in time to help the others rescue Cur Avin from the perverted claws of Bearvalan. (Steve! Furry het alert! I'm afraid it's not quite consummated, this being a gen zine; but one can't have everything.)
