Battle of the Anomaly
Schlacht an der Anomalie
by Michael Marcus Thurner


Alaska Saedelaere receives a call from TANEDRAR. The superintelligence is directly threatened. The mask bearer is to come to the scene of the battle in the Redondo system. He sets off on the way immediately with the World ship. The damaged SHEYAR remains behind to be repaired.

Guard Lieutenant Pridon is a prisoner of the Unharmonious influenced by QIN SHI in the KROURE. Carmydea Yukk has completely changed and knows only one goal: to serve QIN SHI. She threatens Pridon with torture to wrest strategic information from him, but he remains steadfast. Carmydea plays a cruel game with him, allowing him to flee with a rescue pod. She then shuts down the power supply of the capsule by remote control so that Pridon must suffocate.

The BASIS spherical cells and some Terran ships are in anomaly. Raphael announces that the anomaly will soon collapse. That would be the end of the small spaceship association. The Terrans do not mean anything to Raphael, but when Perry Rhodan points out that even the Suit of the Universes is at risk, Raphael agrees to protect the ships with the Multiversum Ocular. Little by little the invasion fleet and the World Scourge leave the anomaly. Last of all, QIN SHI leaves.

Meanwhile, QIN SHI could not have chosen a better time to invade Escalian because the Rite of Departure is approaching. Every Escalianer equipped with a splinter of TANEDRAR suffers from the separation of the super-intelligence. Their ability to act is limited by grief and suffering. Craton Yukk, commander of the Escalian fleet, is among those affected. It even comes to incidents with the deployment of his fleet by the anomaly in the offshore cluster Caunard. The anomaly swells and engulfs some ships. Hostile cone spaceships and huge crystals, from which the Dosanthi generated panic radiation emanates, come from the anomaly. Craton's fleet suffers heavy losses. As it looks as if the page can be turned again in favor of the Escalianers, TAFALLA’s departure ruins everything. The spaceship crews collapse completely. With his last strength Craton can prevail against the Positronic of his flagship, which has seized the naval command and wants to fight until complete annihilation against the invaders. Craton orders the retreat, as thousands of Escalian cylinder ships suddenly appear - unexpected reinforcement?

Craton's joy at the alleged reinforcement turns into horror as the ships attack. These are manned by the Unharmonious manipulated by QIN SHI. Then QIN SHI emerges from the anomaly which then shrinks. Craton loses consciousness…

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Whew! There is some vicious stuff going on at this point. QUIN SHI is now playing for keeps and not wasting any time. Everyone in approaching one location and the threads should start coming together again. We are definitely approaching the cycle climax.

I can't wait to see what happens in the last few issues. I figure another month and I'll hit the final nine.

Galaxy in Chaos
Galaxis im Chaos
by Uwe Anton

The Multiversum Ocular, Ennerhahl's light cell, the MIKRU-JON and the remaining sloops from the BASIS leave the anomaly. At about the same time, the World Ship reaches the Redondo system. The battle between the Realm of Harmony and of the Unharmonious supported superintelligence QIN SHI is decided. Craton Yukk’s decimated fleet flees. QIN SHI incorporates the entity SIL. Perry Rhodan and his people end up between the fronts, because protecting the Multiversum Ocular has top priority for Raphael; the spherical cells leave with an emergency transition, without waiting for the other ships not yet ready to fly. After overcoming the discomfort caused to him by the Rite of Departure, Alaska Saedelaere rushes to help the Terran units. The World Ship filled with Cosmoratic technology holds the opposing battle spaceships in check so long until the Terrans and the light cell have enough speed for the change to superluminal flight.

At the agreed rendezvous point Perry Rhodan and Alaska Saedelaere exchange information. QIN SHI still does not have complete control over the galaxy Escalian, because in the decentralized administrative structure of the empire there is no major governance world that could be conquered by the superintelligence. It is believed that Chancellor Melwai Vedikk will be the next target of QIN SHI. To protect him, the Terrans need the help of Craton Yukk. The Fleet Commander is contacted, but first he has to overcome the shock of defeat and distrust of strangers who are not equipped with a splinter of TANEDRAR. In the meantime, it becomes clear that QIN SHI’s troops are in the sub- galaxy Dranat. The World Scourge depopulates one planet at a time, and the enemy superintelligence is obviously heading for Sholoubwa's control world.

Xylthen landing troops have already boarded the Chancellor’s flying palace. Ennerhahl destroys more than half of a small fleet that besieges Melwai Vedikk's station. The rest flee. Although Perry Rhodan is not enthusiastic about Ennerhahl's uncompromising approach, success proves him right: Melwai Vedikk is saved and brought to Craton Yukk. He is currently not able to act and must recover in the infirmary. Ennerhahl flies away with the light cell because his main task is to find Delorian Rhodan. Perry Rhodan's goal is to search for QIN SHI, even though he knows that he can do nothing against the superintelligence.

On January 9, 1470 NGE, the World Ship (the MIKRU-JON and the SCREW-B stand in its hangar) flies to Control World I. On the way the Suit of the Universes, dissatisfied with its present bearer, announces that "she" is in the immediate vicinity, but cannot tell who this female is. Meanwhile, the control planet is cordoned off by twelve thousand cone ships. All QIN SHI’s crystal spheres are orbiting the plant. They are connected by energy threads with Sholoubwa's tower. QIN SHI appears and starts to mentally subjugate them. Eroin Blitzer, however, who is immune to the influence brings the World Ship into hyperspace at the last second.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I can always trust Uwe to produce an action filled issue that keeps me tightly gripped in its clutches. More threads came together and stuff is happening fast and furious. It's been so long since Perry and Alaska last met that it can't help but be fun to see. If only the SOL wasn't still missing, I'd be one really happy reader. :>

Ein Pfand für die Spenta
A Pledge for the Spenta
by Marc A. Herren


Chourtaird is ready to speak with the Spentas for the Terrans. The Sun Cottagers should remove the Fimbul crust and re-ignite Sol, and in return they can remove ARCHETIM’s corpse in peace. Reginald Bull, Shanda Sarmotte and the Sayporan fly into the Lichtwirt system with the 800-meter battleship LAERTES, which they reach on December 14, 1469 NGE. Colonel Prester Jellicoe, also known as the "Giraffe" because of his height of 2.20 meters, is the commander of the APOLLO class spacecraft. He accompanies Bull, Sarmotte and Chourtaird personally to the Plasma City made of Ephemeral matter, which the Spenta have built inside the sun they inhabit to make contact with other living things. People are greeted there by the maid Isgrud and squire Algamad.

At the same time, Paichander, Dean of the Academy of Logistics, is preparing for the transfer of Terra and Luna to the World Wreath system. Terra is to be positioned by Spheromorph machines and a gigantic transit parquet for the time being between Paladon and Jädvanas , the 12th and 13th planets of the system. Later Terra will be moved to take the path of the third planet. QIN SHI is supposed to depopulate the rest of the solar planets, so the people of Terra believe they 've gotten the better part of the deal. They should be content to live in the security of the World Wreath system.

Inspector Paitäcc is to perform this mission. He is in his flagship KOKOLLUN in the methane ocean of Neptune, waiting for the signal to strike. This signal is given by a small fleet of star galleons and cone space that bombard the sextadim screen and thereby generate a certain energy resonance. Paitäcc awakens from stasis conservation and convinces himself of the readiness of his force. 40,000 cone ships, each with 2000 Dosanthi under the supreme command of Chular Sairett, are hiding on Neptune. Humanity would be powerless against the panic radiation generated by them. Paitäcc only has to make sure that the permanent excitation on board the ships poses no threat to their own people.

In the Lichtwirt system, Bull and his companions make contact with the Spenta via the Great Language Grid. The energy beings are not very friendly. They suspect that the Terrans will contaminate their sun after the removal of ARCHETIM's corpse with those of other super-intelligences. Bull is prepared for this objection. He lets the Spenta read his mind and shares a memory with them that actually came from Perry Rhodan and that he had "implanted" in himself via hypnosis. It's about the first deployment of Hyperinmestrons on July 9, 2405 AD. At that time, the Andromeda sun transmitter and numerous other stars were destroyed by an anti-sun. Bull hints that the Terrans could do the same with the Lichtwirt system. The Spenta give in to his proposal. Bull, however, has to leave behind a pledge: a Terran. The choice falls on Prester Jellicoe, whose brain was irreparably damaged by mental contact with the Spenta. Bull realizes that Chourtaird took the man along on the visit for that very reason. Just before leaving, Bull learns from Isgrud that ARCHETIM is being removed from Sol at this moment.

ARCHETIM’s extraction creates an emotional tidal wave that infuses all inhabitants of the Sol system with enormous pain. This is the moment that Paitäcc has been waiting for.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My goodness. That was quite a turn of event. I'm curious to see if the series really dims the Sol system's six dimensional sparkling jewel and what consequences it brings. Next issue should be a lot of fun, what with the coming Dosanthi attack on the Earth. I'm just wondering where the receiving transit parquet for the spaceships is located. The parquet in Terrania is nowhere that big. :>

The ARCHETIM Shock
Der ARCHETIM-Schock
by Hubert Haensel



The ARCHETIM shock - the flooding of the Sol system with a wave of agonizing emotions due to the removal of the superintelligence’s corpse - is Paitäcc’s signal to attack. His primary objective is the destruction of the crystal balls that sustain the Sextadim veil. Tens of thousands of cone spaceships attack the few totally surprised Terrans, for vessels have approached Sol to observe ARCHETIM’s evacuation. The Terran ships are destroyed. Only Callis Varro, Commander of the heavy cruiser BAMAKO, escapes with a rescue pod that descends to Neptune's moon Triton.

Millions of Dosanthi transmit their panic impulses to the inhabitants of the Sol system and thereby stifle any resistance in the bud. Landing troops attack the inhabited outer planets and moons. On Triton, genetic designer Rya Pascoe flies an old Shift and finds Varro's escape pod. He brings the injured man to safety.

On his return to the Sol system, Reginald Bull finds chaotic conditions. An effective defense is unthinkable. Anicee Ybarri, spokeswoman for the Umbrian Council, orders Paitäcc to stop all fighting. The Sayporan obeys her. His ships even deactivate their energy screens. Negotiations are initiated on December 17, 1469 NGE.

The Spenta fulfill their part of the pact with Reginald Bull. The fimbul crust begins to be dissolved. Sol will be re-ignited. Rya Pascoe and Callis Varro decide to watch the first sunrise in months from Triton.

Reginald Bull sends ships following the Spenta. Further contingents will be sent to the bridge world. Delorian Rhodan and his Starworthy will take over the liberation of the World Wreath system from the rule of the Academy of Logistics….

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This was an unsatisfying issue for me. The storylines for Rya Pasco, Callis Varro and Paitäcc come to such meaningless ends that it was annoying. And Paitäcc's story ends totally offstage and that really pissed me off. The only thing that I liked, was that they actually took away ARCHETIM's corpse! I really didn't think they would do that. As Bull pondered, I wonder if it will have an effect on humanity's evolution and place in the universe. Hopefully it will not just be forgotten. That would be a wasted potential.

Angriff der Nanokrieger
Attack of the Nanowarriors
von Leo Lukas


Three large Terran fleets will be sent to the World Wreath system, to the bridge world, and to the Ephemeral Gate, as these locations will determine the fate of the anomaly and thus of the Sol system. It comes to a stalemate, because the power center of the Sayporaners and the Ephemeral Gate are backed by far superior fleets of cone ships and star galleons. The planet Faland, on which the dead brain is located, cannot be approached directly because of the disturbing radiation prevailing there. Toufec and his Alliance of the Starworthy have been ordered to depose or kill Paichander to liberate the Sayporans from the rule of the Academy of Logistics. From tracking the TOLBA and records that Pazuzu made while working on Druh, Delorian Rhodan concludes that the Academy of Logistics has been relocated to the plantation world Pareezad. This planet of the World Wreath system serves the Sayporans as a "store" for body parts that they can incorporate – people from many races live there, who are mentally influenced and exploited in the truest sense of the word.

The seven thousand, five hundred and one Sol Mobile Mission Fleet arrive in the Banteira system and make a fake attack on the forces commanded by Paigaross, the Salvage Academy Inspector, to distract them and allow six six-member Starworthy teams to land unnoticed on Pareezad. Toufec's team meets Ynirt, a Gyvie spider being, who is being forced to sacrifice himself to the god Antuu because of the birth of his second child. Suddenly Toufec's companions succumb to the same hypnosuggestive influence that dominates Ynirt. Only Toufec is protected due to his particularly intimate bond with his nanogents. Two of his men kill each other and other team members (including Clara Esleve) are seriously injured by their own nanogents. Toufec barely manages to get them to safety but returns immediately to the mission so that the mission does not fail, because the other teams have also had to flee.

Toufec releases Ynirt from the suggestive commands and disguises himself as a Gyvie. Together, they reach the Pinnacle of Transfiguration, one of many black pyramids with spiral antennas at their tops, from which the suggestive impulses emanate. This pyramid is something special. A Nano-falcon posted by Toufec has discovered that in a shaft in the middle of the pyramid there is a cylindrical object that has apparently been there for only a few days. Toufec does not doubt that it is the Academy of Logistics.

On December 19, 1469 NGE Reginald Bull receives a message from Commodore Jomo Wangare, who commands the fleet dispatched to the Ephemeral Gate. There, an additional twenty thousand star galleons have appeared, flying at low speed towards the gate.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This issue was much better than I thought it be. When I began the translation, I thought it was going to be an alien history issue, but it turned out to be a rousing undercover mission with serious consequences. Leo Lukas did a really good job with the Alliance of the Starworthy. My only problem was with the names of the alien flora and fauna. I know that they are supposed to be evocative of the lifeform, but it's very tough to make sense of them.

Everything Is Saved Forever
Alles gerettet auf ewig
by Wim Vandemaan


Ynirt and the Toufec, disguised as a Gyvie, are led into the Pinnacle of Transfiguration by Steward Schtaoros, a cube-shaped artificial being. An Antuu - a kind of fire serpent, beings that are considered gods by the inhabitants of Pareezad - appears and lunges at Toufec, who kills the Antuu and Shtaoros with a Nanogent sword. The two intruders can continue on their way but are attacked by Fagesys. Ynirt is badly wounded. Toufec has to leave the spider like being behind in a medical center. Toufec encounters two seemingly senile Sayporans and kills one of them because he thinks he is Paichander. The Sayporan is actually named Dhaeconost and is a seal researcher. He seems to know something about the seal that held ARCHETIM's psi-corpse in Sol. But Toufec receives no useful information from the dying being.

Although Toufec keeps on advancing, his task overtaxes his mind, and doubt about Delorian Rhodan’s righteousness awakens in him. Asked for his loyalty, Pazuzu says he'll serve Toufec, if forced to choose. Finally, Toufec gives up on the assassination mission and now just wants to try to disable the pyramid. For this purpose, he destroys the antennas standing on the top of the building. After a fight against the Antuus, he still meets Paichander. At last, Toufec realizes why he has no more obstacles in his way: Paichander intends to incorporate Toufec into his body. Pazuzu is temporarily paralyzed. Only with the help of some Antuus who Toufec has lured there and with the support of an unknown person, does Toufec end up killing Paichander, after all.

This breaks the power of the Pai. The Chour return and pick up the reins. Chourtaird and Choursterc, the new consuls of the World Wreath system, declare that the alliance with QIN SHI is over in the name of the New Sayporan Constitution. From Anicee Ybarri Reginald Bell has previously learned that Paitäcc, where appropriate, "will be on the side of the Chours". Toufec takes his leave from the Alliance of the Starworthy. He wants to return to the city of Aures. Delorian Rhodan releases him.

On December 22, 1469 NGE Delorian Rhodan gives a speech to the inhabitants of the Sol system with Reginald Bull's permission. Through a mental projection he shows them which future he has to offer them. Those who follow him will start a new life as a spiritualized being in the Neuroversum, safe from the access of superintelligences, Cosmocrats and Chaotarchs, embedded in a collective of consciousnesses and in another reality that enables the realization of all one’s dreams. Bull experiences a sample of this dream world, in which everything that their inhabitants desire is possible. There, the dead are not dead, not even Bull’s father fallen in World War II on Omaha Beach, whose grave he has never visited.

Bull and most of the other humans and extraterrestrials in the Sol system reject Delorian’s offer. More than thirty-five million people (0.31% of the total population) accept it. Together with the Reformatted teenagers, they are transported to the World Wreath system. There they find huge halls with millions of suspension beds. The emigrants are supposed to be put into hyperspace here. Their ÜBSEF constants will be hidden there to be safe from the soul-eater QIN SHI. Bull assumes that the suspension technique will also be used for the planned spiritualization. Bull receives detailed information about this technique from Chourtaird. Meanwhile, the Resident suspects that it will soon come to a final battle against QIN SHI…

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


It's good to finally get some kind of answer on what Delorian is up to and have plenty of action going on. I'm always happy when we come towards the end of a cycle. because the authors are allowed to speed up the story and give answers.

Die zweite Wirklichkeit
The Second Reality
By Arndt Ellmer

After barely escaping QIN SHI (who is about to depopulate an entire area of Dranat), Perry Rhodan and his friends fly with the World Ship to the planet Pean. Alaska Saedelaere and Eroin Blitzer behave strangely on the way there, as if they were subject to a foreign influence, which they themselves do not notice. Rhodan, Saedelaere, Gucky and Nemo Partijan land on the planet. Their search for the Peaners (who are Suggestors) is difficult, because they do not want to be found and lead the intruders astray with mirages. Only Saedelaere is welcome, as they had previously healed him. The Peaners bring him to them and seem to lead him into a cave. There the Terran sees large amounts of Howalgonium. Apparently there are huge hypercrystal deposits in the mountain where the cave is located.

The Peaner call themselves the "godparents" of TANEDRAR. They report how the four forcibly-spiritualized entities once came to Pean from Chanda and hid there from QIN SHI with the help of the Peaners. In a protracted process, the suggestive powers of the Peaners enabled them to stabilize and unite. The Peaners also proposed the ritual of Arrival and Departure. Pean became TANEDRAR’s anchor. QIN SHI arrived a little later and wanted to take possession of both the Howalgonium and the Peaners, but was repelled by them.

That, the Peaners make clear, would not be possible for them today. Saedelaere realizes that TANEDRAR is hiding on Pean again. The Peaners intend to reconcile the two enemy superintelligences. Saedelaere and his friends volunteer to help act as intermediaries. The mask bearer brings his friends to the cave. Partijan has back pain again and collapses in the cave. QIN SHI is approaching...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The story is moving along at high speed now. Answers are being given, history is being filled in, and the action is coming hot and heavy. All the threads are in the process of coming together and I love it!

Crystal Labyrinth
Kristall-Labyrinth
by Christian Montillon


QIN SHI is getting ready to attack TANEDRAR and all the Escalians connected to the superintelligence by an Escaran. This sumptuous meal will be better than anything QIN SHI has ever eaten. If QIN SHI absorbs the entire mental energy of TANEDRAR and the contents of the minds of billions of intelligence beings, it could create something unprecedented that goes beyond the known cosmic evolution.

In the Howalgonium mine Perry Rhodan, Pucky, Alaska Saedelaere and Nemo Partijan remain unnoticed. However, they suffer from the side effects of the hypercrystals. Partijan even seems to be dying from the hyper-radiation. All four are connected to each other and to TANEDRAR through hyper-energetic strands. Rhodan and Gucky have visions of current events in Escalian, in which reality and delusions mingled in a bizarre manner. The Terran leads a hopeless fight at the side of Craton Yukk against the invaders as a replacement for the missing Chancellor Orsen Tafalla. The mousebeaver finds himself in a zoo on Pean. Later, he witnesses King Noser Netbura trying to convince the Xylthians to turn sides but fails and sacrifices himself instead.

Having failed to get QUIN SHI to give up her attack, Rhodan and Pucky wake up. Gucky believes that two parts of the quadruple entity TANEDRAR now no longer exist.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Such a cool issue. Plenty of action, with real consequences and it moves the story along at full speed. I can't wait to finish the second part of this. It'll be the beginning of the last ten issues of the cycle, so WOO WHOO!

The Fifth Act
Der fünfte Akt
by Marc A. Herren


Alaska Saedelaere and Nemo Partijan are still linked to each other and to TANEDRAR through hyper-energetic strands. They experience the defensive struggle of the Empire of Harmony against QIN SHI’s invasion force, where reality and visions mingle.

Partijan meets Gommrich Dranat. The Court Jester from the Admonishing Drama personally intervenes in the space battles, but only accomplishes pinpricks against the opponent, which are bought with high losses on the Harmony side. Ultimately, the fleet of the Empire of Harmony is destroyed by a minefield laid by the Jester himself. DRANAT is devoured by QIN SHI.

Saedelaere tries to convince Princess Arden Drabbuh that the war cannot be won by battleships. She should follow the plan of the Peaners and unite with QIN SHI. On a mentally created red plain, the Princess negotiates with an avatar of the hostile superintelligence and offers him a pact. QIN SHI is completely unimpressed and begins to gnaw on the body of the Princess. She flees into a kind of fog bank, which QIN SHI is for some reason afraid to chase after her in. The red plain dissolves. The mask bearer falls into a sun through the void left behind.

Perry Rhodan and Gucky, who have already left the mental construct, assume that TANEDRAR has been defeated. The next target of QIN SHI will be the Peaners and them. Gucky asks Rhodan what they can do about it…
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The action comes quick and heavy now and it had serious consequences. I'm having a blast with these issues and I cannot wait to see how it all ends.

The Howanet Man
Der Howanetzmann
by Hubert Haensel


The destruction of Pean is imminent. Perry Rhodan, Gucky and Alaska Saedelaere flee from the Howalgonium cave. They take the unconscious Nemo Partijan with them. The Peaners give their guests protection for enough time that they can escape the downfall of the world with the SCREW-B. The cell activator bearers have to spend a few days in medo-tanks due to massive radiation poisoning. Whether Nemo Partijan will ever recover again is questionable, given the deadly hyper-radiation dose. When Rhodan awakens rom healing on January 15, 1470 NGE and finds Partijan's tank empty, he thinks the Stardust Terran has died. In truth, Partijan is alive and well and is already in the headquarters of the World Ship.

Rhodan is fed up with Partijan's secrecy and gets the truth out of him. Partijan informs them: At the age of five he was traveling with his parents in their prospector ship in the area of the sun of the Stardust system. The ship was attacked by a Howanet. It teleported into the headquarters, wraps itself around the boy, and excretes some hypercrystal shards. When the Howanet teleport away, the splinters combine at the molecular level with Partijan’s spinal cord and remain there. Not only does he periodically have back pain due to these splinters, he also gains a special affinity for hypercrystals and the ability to perceive hyperspace as a kind of landscape. On Pean, the splinters absorbed the deadly energies and rendered it harmless.

Like Alaska Saedelaere and Eroin Blitzer, Partijan was now recognized and hypno-schooled by the World Ship. He discovers a hitherto unknown legacy of Sholoubwa: A camouflage system that works in a similar way to an Antitemporal Time Field. This can shift the World Ship in time, so that it is hidden in an unstable zone and cannot be detected even by QIN SHI. Camouflaged so, the World Ship flies Sholoubwa's Control World I, because QIN SHI seems to be preparing something important there. On the 16th of January the BOTNETZ appears there. A dimensional tunnel is formed. Rhodan and Mondra Diamond assume that it will create a connection to the Sol system.

The Commander of the LUMINOSITY is watching these events from Tolmar. The hypercrystal planet is heated up until it breaks. A transfer to Control World I takes place. The cobalt blue cylinder goes there and is thus exactly where the Cosmocrats originally wanted it...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is very much a clean up and set up issue. I found it funny how the escape from Pean felt so rushed. They could have just stuck it at the end of the previous issue. And the sections involving the LUMINOSITY come out of nowhere, but just goes to remind you that the Cosmocrats always have their fingers in the pie.

Winters Ende
Winter’s End
By Leo Lukas


More than thirty-five million people will be transported to the World Wreath system in early January 1470 NGE to enter the paradise promised by Delorian Rhodan. Families and friends are being torn apart, because not everyone wants to give up their physical existence and live in an unreal illusory world, however perfectly this may be designed according to the wishes of its inhabitants. The family Estmon-Winter experiences such a family drama. The Terra-Nostalgic Yugen does not trust Delorian and will soon be separated forever from his wife Rabienne, who is ready leave him and their eight year old daughter Aria to stay on Saypor to be reunited with their older Reformatted daughter Irmayi .

Yugen and Aria go with Rabienne to Saypor, hoping to change his wife’s and Irmayi’s minds. From the Imarter Letriffa Hampton, who invites him to the meeting of a support group of other Terra-Nostalgics on Saypor, he receives a thermal emitter, which he uses to try to force Irmayi to return to Terra. The desperate action catastrophically goes awry as another Reformatted tries to wrest the gun from Yugen. A shot goes off. Rabienne and Aria are critically injured by falling debris. There is only one possibility for rescue: The two must be immediately spiritualized on a suspension couch. Yugen ends up staying on Saypor. Not to lose his entire family, he will accept Delorian's offer.

Meanwhile, the reignition of Sol is being prepared. As promised, the sun will shine again on Terrania City around noon on January 11th, but at the same time the alarm is raised. Professor Ruaidhri Brszescek, the Swoon Head of Hyper-sensors at the Waringer Academy, informs Reginald Bell that the interior of the anomaly is stable now, but its outer edges show signs of disintegration. Then, at a certain point a tunnel opens to the standard universe. Bull goes personally there with the LEIF ERIKSSON IV and a mission fleet of one hundred LFT-BOXES. In the middle of the ten million kilometer wide perforation, the TOLBA appears. Delorian announces that QIN SHI will soon attack, but that Sol system is sufficiently protected by the Sextadim veil modified by him. He leaves the anomaly, saying that he has work elsewhere to take care of.

Reginald Bull does not doubt that Delorian has used this tunnel many times before to switch to the standard universe and that QIN SHI does not know about the existence of the opening. Bull's fleet flies into the tunnel, but pulls back soon, because on the other side QIN SHI has a combat fleet consisting of thousands of ships waiting. Over leftover probes, it is observed on January 13 that QIN SHI is producing his own entrance to the miniature universe. Prof. Brszescek expresses the fear that the anomaly might collapse as a result of the hyperphysical chaos associated with it ...

Holy cow! I did not expect that ending for the Winter family. It's nice to know I can still be surprised.

Mutiny on the BASIS
Meuterei auf der BASIS
by Susan Schwartz


The sloops of the BASIS are located near an Earth-like planet, far away from the battles raging in Escalian. Many Galactics, especially the numerous civilians, believe that Perry Rhodan abandoned them, even though the Immortal promised to pick up the sloops soon. That is not enough for them; they want to return home as soon as possible. Since Colonel Derrayn Anrene, who has taken over command from Erik Theonta, makes no move to do anything himself, they prepare a mutiny. Heatha Neroverde has been a fashion jewelry salesperson for some time but does not ignore the surveillance of potential troublemakers. She learns that something is brewing in the CHISHOLM. The Terran Sigma Essibili, spokesman for a thirteen person council for passenger advocacy based on the recommendation of Mondra Diamond, seems to be the mastermind. In her research, however, Heatha spies on the mutineers, is captured and drugged. It gives them explosive information that helps to realize their plans.

On January 14, 1470 NGE Essibili activates his people. They take control of the CHISHOLM. Commander Electra Pauk is taken hostage. Colonel Anrene cannot stop the ship from landing on the planet. He responds to the mutineers' demands and sends some corvettes to contact Perry Rhodan. They want Rhodan to look for a Polyport court over which the sloops can leave Escalian. If no contact can be made within a certain period, Essibili wants to send out a hypercom call to Rhodan, thus making the enemy attentive of them and compromising their hiding place. To avoid this, Anrene reaches for a trick shortly before the deadline and simulates a picture call from Rhodan, whose role he takes on. By claiming to have found a way to reach the Sol system, he gains more time. The mutineers even release the CHISHOLM. Anrene is ready to let the matter go.

Corvettes return on the 16th of January. They are accompanied by the World Ship. Alaska Saedelaere makes the promise made by the feigned Perry Rhodan true. All the sloops dock to the World Ship and are brought to the vicinity of Control World I. There, a dimensional tunnel has opened that leads to an anomaly. Rhodan believes that the Sol system is in this anomaly. Between the opening of the tunnel and the Control World rages a huge space battle. Terran units are right in the middle of it...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well, this was a big nothing of an issue. Basically, a slice of life for the Galactic bystanders in the cycle. I would have preferred it a bit earlier in the cycle, but that's how it is. Hopefully, things will pick up again next issue.

Volume 2694
Death Labyrinth
By Susan Schwartz

Shamsur Routh was transferred to the Ralph Artur Clinic in Terrania because his condition is rapidly deteriorating. Ward manager Saram Ialtek and caretaker Palko, who befriends Routh, can barely do anything for their patient, because they do not know why all the synapses in the reporter's brain are gradually dying. His short-term memory is already badly affected, and Routh is often so confused that he does not know where or who he is. Clear moments in which Routh is painfully aware of his situation are becoming increasingly rare. Physical complaints also begin to accumulate.

In this situation, Chourtaird offers his help. Compared to Ialtek he claims that Routh still has an important role to play. The ward supervisor believes the Sayporan just wants to incorporate his patient's organs in himself and remains suspicious. Chourtaird is allowed to wait in the clinic for Routh's end. Using nanomachines, Routh is pulled from the abyss of oblivion one last time. His daughter Anicee visits him to say goodbye. Henrike Ybarri is too busy; she only arrives on January 14, 1470 NGE when Routh has already died. She notes that Chourtaird has taken Routh’s brain with Anicee's approval and is now in the Suspended suspension. After initial horror, Henrike allows Routh's brain to be integrated into the Continuous Sediment on Faland. She wants to reschedule her affairs of state to travel there herself via a transit parquet. It turns out that with the help of Aiden Cranstoun ( one of the crew members of the ship BOMBAY), it may be possible to contact Routh.

After his death, Routh finds himself in a nightmarish labyrinth in which he is beset by shadowy figures. An unknown person, whom Routh only realizes is Zachary Cranstoun, that he has met on Gadomenaa, helps him. Routh is given the choice of either dying for good or, like Cranstoun, immersing himself and joining in the Brain of the Dead. He chooses the latter, giving up a part of himself which then fades away forever. Routh learns that Delorian Rhodan is behind the abduction of ALLDAR's Psi-corpse. The dead superintelligence is already part of the Brain of the Dead.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Trust Susan Schwartz to put a nice little twist in the last page of an issue. So ALLDAR's corpse is part of the Brain of the Dead. If the corpse still contains active consciousnesses, like ARCHETIM had the Schaokke, it will provide a crucial twist in the final battle with QUIN SHI. Meanwhile, Shamsur becomes intellectualized, to a certain extent, and has to learn how to deal with it, which is a bit of a horror film. That's always fun. I wish it could put on film. :>

Dead Brain
Totenhirn
by Michael Marcus Thurner


On January 16, 1470 NGE the dimensional tunnel created by Delorian Rhodan collapses, but a little later a new one opens. QIN SHI has created his own access to the anomaly with the facilities on Sholoubwa's control world, and his invasion fleet is ready. But Reginald Bull carries out the first blow. He leads Xylthe and Terran units through the passage into the normal universe and attacks the completely surprised opponents there. The cone spaceships fight on the front line, while the Dosanthis use their panic radiation and simultaneously shield the Terrans from the emanations of their hostile counterparts. This is how the allies achieve great successes. The morale of the Terrans is increased even further when a radio message from Perry Rhodan arrives. The immortal sends only an image: Crossed bones with a women's shoe ... QIN SHI's troops, however, get reinforced by the cylinder spaceship of the Desperate Resistance. Moreover, not all the Dosanthis are convinced that they are on the right side with the Terrans and do not show their full commitment. The invaders gradually gain the upper hand.

On the same day Henrike Ybarri, Aiden Cranstoun and Chourtaird travel to Faland. They are accompanied by Anka Hilvard, the protégé of Colonel Strasky Ankersen, commander of the RATBER TOSTAN. Anka is an empath and assists Aiden in establishing contact with his brother Zachary and Shamsur Routh in the Dead Brain. Routh and Zachary use the two para-gifted people as mouthpieces. This is how Henrike Ybarri learns the true reasons behind ALLDAR's disappearance. Somehow, Zachary and Routh have managed to gain control of the Dead Brain. The entire structure, a 19.7-kilometer-thick, one thousand two hundred eighty-three meter thick land mass enveloped in an energy screen, is released from the planet's surface. The RATBER TOSTAN and the LFT-BOXES stationed at Faland support the process with tractor beams. The Dead Brain wishes to be brought into the Sol system.

As their own losses increase – four hundred twelve cone ships and twenty-three LFT-BOXES have already been destroyed - Reginald Bull orders the retreat. The allies return to the anomaly. QIN SHI’s fleet follows them immediately. A debacle threatens, but suddenly the enemy ships stop all fighting. They are under the influence of the Dead Brain, which has recognized that QIN SHI’s troops have invaded the anomaly, after which the course of the battle was changed. Then the TOLBA is located. Delorian is still nearby. It seems that the sensor protection of his ship was temporarily broken by a light cell.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The action is coming hot and heavy now and everyone is making contact, so I can't wait for the next issue. Thurner is very talented at showing the characters' emotions and really pulled me in.

Hi everyone. I forgot that I wanted to ask a question about this issue. During it, Perry sends a visual message of a pair of crossed bones and a woman's shoe as an identification that nobody but Bull would understand. Does anyone recognize the significance of this?

Thanks,
Jerry

Hi Jerry,
I'm just guessing - it might be some kind of "logo" of a club Perry and Bully were members back in der US Army days.

Hi Jerry, the woman's shoe is from the movie "Rodan - die fliegenden Monster von Osaka". In chapter 12, Bull remembers he once watched a TV show (in the 1970s) where an unnamed comedian was joking about similarities between Rhodan and Rodan. The movie does really exist and the woman's shoe is part of it. That's all I could figure out.

Thank you very much for the information. Now the passage makes sense.

Delorian
by Hubert Haensel

Ennerhahl has the assignment to secure the BOTNETZ for ES. When Delorian Rhodan leaves the anomaly, Ennerhahl sees his chance to strike and sets the TOLBA with a shackle field of his light cell. Delorian wants to explain the reasons for his actions. Ennerhahl grants him the request. Perry Rhodan and Mondra Diamond participate in the conversation taking place in a covered platform generated by the SCREW-B.

Delorian's story begins about eighteen million years ago, after the emergence of ES at INSHARAM. He encounters an older version of himself and develops a plan to break away from the superintelligence with which he is so closely connected that he can be regarded as the true "core" of ES. Delorian wants to hide from the perception of the superintelligence and at the end of the Great Time Loop quasi disappear so as not to be integrated into the consciousness pool of ES, as soon as the superintelligence no longer needs him. Until then, as the Chronicler of ES, he notes all important events in the Time Chronicles of Amringhar .

So Delorian gains insights he needs to create the ultimate hiding place for himself. He discovers the city of Aures and tailors the Suit of the Universes. In the young Samburi Yura he finds an important helper. His goal is to harvest the fruits of QIN SHI's preparations. The parasitic superintelligence has created a miniature universe that it stabilizes with superintelligence corpses. The Utrafors should later control the proposed Neuroversum. Delorian doubts that that will be enough, and steals ALLDAR's psi corpse to integrate him into the Dead Brain and use this as a control for the Neuroversum.

In order to outsmart QIN SHI, Delorian sets a Trojan horse for the superintelligence: the Multiversum Ocular. For this purpose, he hides nanospheres from Aures in the BASIS when it is under construction. ARCHETIM's body serves as a decoy for QIN SHI. However, Delorian notes that QIN SHI strikes earlier and harder than expected. Thus, contrary to Delorian's intention, the Sol system is endangered.

Delorian claims that he wants to prevent the worst. To create the Neuroversum, however, he needs a lot of vital energy. He asks Perry Rhodan to give him his cell activator. Rhodan is unwilling to do so, and certainly not because he assumes that Delorian wants to forcibly spiritualize all living things in the anomaly and merge them into a new superintelligence. Mondra stands on Delorian's side. Ennerhahl uses his means, possibilities and ways to tie up Delorian. He is ready to get rid of Delorian, but the man manages to dematerialize and escape with the TOLBA.
