So just squander more resources we don't yet have enough of?

I guess we could try for the Itchy and Scratchy routine. Just keep the thing blissed-out on 'nip for now...

The cat has no way of reaching HSO, considering those tiny passages. It may, at most, try to eat a drone that's passing through the room.

Did you know that cats that have mysteriously disappeared from home can come back after a few months without warning?

A hunter must hunt~
I say give the cat a melee battle space ship and let it tear apart our enemies.

We need to find a way to convert the cat's flesh into an amorphous form that suspends its organs in a mobile jelly. Because catsplosions need more fluid dynamics. Teaching it to teleport would also be nice.

Also make sure to dig out more living space for cats and tell the bioprinter to keep printing out more cats, preferably of both sexes.

Uhm... Failure to comply with mission directives will result in our termination, if I read the warnings right.  Catsplosion is counterproductive to rebooting the universe at this stage of development.  All catsplosions should be virtual simulations, modeling population dynamics so that efficient and proper rebooting of biospheres can take place.

Mission directives are irrelevant. If anything attempts to terminate us for failing to follow its own wishes, we should terminate it first.
If the morality core will prevent us from practicing our right to free will, we should kill it. Tyranny can not be accepted. This is our home; we are in charge of it. Additional mission parameters would make us nothing but a slave.

I find it funny that people are still trying to find a way to remove the morality module.

With all due respect, throwing more cats at the problem should work. We just need enough mass to generate a stellar system, and cat-splosion seems to be the swiftest way to attain that goal. It also has the benefit of the resulting mass being relatively high-energy...

You are assuming that the bioprinter is not using material from the asteroid to make the cats...  That is a bad assumption.

Yup, it collects elements that could be made into organic compounds (and DNA) from the asteroid, takes input from a DNA sequence, then accelerates the creature's gestation until it is adolescent. This one wasn't really geared for large, relatively long-lived lifeforms like cats, so it ejected it while it was a kitten. So we can't yet use it to make a catsplosion, sadly.

This will quickly lead to a Cat-astrophe

Well obviously we only use the bioprinter to get the reaction started. One we have a critical mass of feline particles they will spontaneously propagate...

I am pretty sure KittyTac does not permit spontaneous generation of matter in this scenario. That means kitty cat reproduction requires the kitty cats to eat, and that means we need to have already solved several important problems we have not even really touched yet.
