In honor of your birthday we have arranged for a star about 29 light years from Barryar to go supernova. And in a final test of the new galactic hyperspace transport system, you will be whisked from Earth to Barryar to witness the display. You will then be taken on a whirlwind tour (by more conventional means) of all the interesting and storied sights of Barryar, and finally returned to Earth by the hyperspace transport.

On the bright side (no pun intended), they have 29 years to put up
some sort of sunshade.
