The astronauts gathered at the window.

"Now that's a strange meteor," said the captain. "Computer, can you analyze it?"

*** Analyzing-the-object. ***

As the object neared, the astronauts began whispering. "Look at that profile."

"Yeah, it kind of looks like a ..."

*** Analysis-complete. Matter-of-unknown-origin. Probably-magical. ***

"Hey, what do you mean 'magical'? We're in a cool sci-fi spaceship, not some fairy tale!"

*** Magical-means-I-have-no-frakking-idea. Is-that-enough-science-ficition-for-you? ***

"Then analyze its trajectory!" shouted the captain.

*** Analyzing-the-trajectory.***

"Be fast. It's closing quickly," said an astrounaut. "Oh my gee-forces. That thing is big."

*** Analysis-in-progress. ***

"Uh, do we really need an analysis, Captain? It looks like it's coming right at us."

"Right. Charge the cannons, computer."

*** Analysis-in-progress. ***

"Stop analysis and charge cannons!"

*** Analysis-in-progress. Seems-the-results-will-be-very-interesting. ***

"If you don't charge the cannons, there will be no one to see the results!"

*** Analysis-in-progress. Be-patient. ***

"Are you kidding me?!"

"Captain, it's too late. We'll have collision in five - four - three - two - one..."

The silence was overwhelming.

"Zero?"

"What happened?"

"It just disappeared."

"Whew!"

*** Analysis-complete. The-object-entered-our-zone-from-another-dimension. There-is-high-probability-it-will-return-to-its-dimension-soon. ***

"Thank you for that timely analysis," said the captain.

"Maybe it was a divine sign," said one astronaut. "Or a zodiac sign?"

"Dave, no animal in the zodiac looks like that. Let's stick to the real facts."

"How you can tell what is real? What if all this is just a game? What if this was just some trivia quiz?"

"You read too much, Dave. Pull yourself together. We have four more adventure cards to survive."

Unfortunately, this clue could be a bit clearer.
Don't interpret too much...

I didn't find it so, but we should probably not go into details now.

This only became clear to me when I had to choose between two legends, but it's as clear as it can be when you find it

Clearly the captain should have ordered the crew to go charge the lasers. They already had visual confirmation of the threat.

Unfortunately for Dave, I'm playing Galaxy Trucker tonight and I built him a crappy spaceship. He will die horribly when the next little asteroid hits the exposed connector on his crew cabin. But at least he managed to help us solve the riddle first!

As the contest ended, here is the solution to this clue:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
This requires some searching, in fact it was the last clue I found, but it's quite clear. The clue is this:
"Dave, no animal in the zodiac looks like that. Let's stick to the real facts."
So we need to rule out any legend that looks like an animal from the zodiac. Sticking to the western zodiac which was probably the intent we can rule out Hell Bull that looks like "Taurus" or "The Bull".
Some people pointed out that the chinese zodiac has a dragon and used this to rule out the two dragons from the legends list. It doesn't really matter because the Dungeon Petz clue can be used to rule them out.
