Volume 2702
The Positronic Phantom
Das positronische Phantom
by Marc A. Herren


Pri Sipiera greets Perry Rhodan in one of many hiding places of the Lunar Resistance. His presence gives the underground fighters new hope. Rhodan learns about the current situation and the accusations by the Atopic Tribunal. Pri has no more information on the charges, because Shekval Genneryc's speech was also surprising for the Lunarians. Suddenly Rhodan sees a woman who seems to be reflecting in a mirror surface. It is the Positronic Phantom that the resisters have often received warnings from. IT happens again now: security forces of the Onryons attack the hiding place of the Lunar resistance and destroy the Lunafant hotel that they are under. The resisters flee, sacrificing one of themselves to stop the pursuers. His corpse is temporarily reanimated, and so the Onryons learn of Rhodan's presence. The resisters and Rhodan's group are now hiding in Beer & Mädler University. Again the phantom appears - it is YLA, NATHAN's daughter, and unlike her "father" she has not been influenced by the Onryons. YLA seems to ask Rhodan to come to him. They go to YLA’s sublunary center. This section of NATHAN was largely rebuilt; a major contributor to this was an ingenious Positronc specialist named Leyla Kezziban. In YLA's view, the allegations made against Rhodan do not lack a certain foundation, it only depends on one’s point of view ... YLA says that Luna has only one Atope there. His name is Matan Addaru Dannoer, and he is probably not Onryone.

In the meantime, Rhodan learns that Pris' father Antonin Sipiera had given the Onryons access to NATHAN in the face of catastrophic moonquakes while in the Shaft, so that the biopositronic could be linked to Genius (the Iacalla central computer). With the additional computing capacity, the Onryons were able to predict quakes and avoid losses. In addition, the Reportal could only be constructed with NATHAN’s help, a facility that would serve to accomplish the return of Luna into the standard universe. The ever-proliferating techno-mesh was part of this project. Through his collaboration with the Onryons, whose relationship with the Lunar people continued to deteriorate over the years, Sipiera had created enemies. Among them was Golo Sipiera, the "third party partner" in the marriage to Tamea Sipiera and Pri's genetic second father. Antonin did not want to hear Golo’s warnings. Golo founded the lunar resistance. The first battles - humans against humans, and later against Onryons - came on February 2, 1540 NGE (Lunar time), as Luna Town I to VI were cleared out on Antonin's order for the Reportal project. Finally, Pri had gone underground and taken over the leadership of the resistance. Two years later, the Reportal had finally been successfully activated and Luna returned to the Sol system.

Rhodan follows YLA's advice and decides to leave Luna with the Onryon ship PYTUU, which is about to launch. Fionn Kemeny, who is fascinated by YLA, as well as Shanda Sarmotte and Toufec want to stay on Luna to support the resistance. Before Rhodan is smuggled to the PYTUU with a transport of bioluminescent Anuupi jellyfish, he accompanies Pri on a risky mission. They steal an important object for the Onryons, known as the “Pelt”, from a temple in Luna City. The mission succeeds with Pazuzu’s help. Rhodan retreives the snake skin like cape from a block of lunar rock and takes it with him. No one knows the purpose of the Pelt. In addition, Rhodan takes along a sample of the material Patronite, which is used by the Onryons for a variety of purposes. Pazuzu states that Patronite has a very strong repulsive effect and is able to turn any other matter into Patronite.

Pazuzu sacrifices a large part of his nano-substance to help Rhodan’s escape. The spin-off simulates the properties of the PYTUU's Patronite hull and sticks to the ship's outer skin like a bubble, allowing Rhodan to hide there unnoticed. The PYTUU and several dozen other ships, including a two thousand one hundred meter diameter spaceship, cross the Repulsor Wall and engage in a space battle with Terran units. It is little more than a cautious skirmish. After the two associations split, Rhodan moves away from the PYTUU and secretly contacts the KRUSENSTERN who retrieves him…
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm really enjoying the early stage of this cycle. There's plenty of action and movement happening. When YLA and NATHAN eventually have a conversation it's going to feel schizophrenic. I'm also interested in seeing if the KRUSENSTERN gets a bigger share in the action later on. Time will tell...

And that's why I'm reading this cycle a second time right now. I'm a bit ahead of your current synopsis, about 50 issues, and I enjoy it very much!
Only want to tell you: It's quite a ride! Some aspects of it are still stirring minds of some forists here five years after.

So, some people have gotten upset over things happening? That just means that the team is trying something new. Well, I'm almost sixty years old, so I've seen a lot of change in my lifetime. I think I can handle a little controversy. It's better than being bored :D

2703
Tod im All
Death in Space
Bernd Perplies

Perry Rhodan is fished from space by the KRUSENSTERN. He gives Viccor Bughassidow as much of the plain truth as he can afford to, and leaves the Pelt with the Ara Medic Jatin, Bughassidow’s personnel physician. She finds out that the Pelt is a quasi-organic artificial being whose cell organelles contain nanomachines. As Jatin's colleague Henna McCorrell is left alone with the Pelt, it suddenly comes to life. It forms pseudopodia and a stinger with which it draws blood from the woman to strengthen herself. She does not survive the attack. After that, the Pelt disappears somewhere in the ship. Rhodan personally participates in the hunt and realizes that the Pelt is after him. The being kills other crew members. Each time the Pelt sucks blood from its victims, it becomes bigger and smarter. It is not enough to hurt it, because it has neither a central nervous system, nor can it be significantly weakened by the loss of body substance. The Pelt even appears in the headquarters and threatens Rhodan's granddaughter Farye Sepheroa. Rhodan sets himself up as bait and lures the Pelt into a sloop, which is then directed into space by Farye. She gets to safety with the detachable cockpit. Then the sloop is destroyed by the guns of the KRUSENSTERN. From the Pelt remain only small remains, which are kept safe by Rhodan.

On Terra, Sichu Dorksteiger, who is dealing with the problem of linear space torpedoes, receives a message from Dr. Lhukas Scalsi. The Medic looked at Tasso Cormac, the only survivors of the Terran aid convoy destroyed by the Onryons. The man is in a coma, but Scalsi knows a way Sichu can "question" him. With a modification of the SERT technique Scalsi has developed the method of simultaneous emotion and mnemonic transmission (SEMT). Through two interconnected SEMT hoods the thoughts of one person can be transferred to and received by another. Although the technology is not yet fully developed, Sichu allows its use due to the special situation and makes herself available as the second person. She witnesses the destruction of the HILDEGARD VON BINGEN through the eyes of Tasso and learns that the sensor buoy provided with a black box from the ship must be drifting somewhere in the field of debris. Sichu initiates the search for the black box.

Then Sichu receives a coded message from the KRUSENSTERN parked outside the Sol system. Bughasidov invites the LFT Chief Scientist to talk to him about the theory of the Medusa planets. She accepts the invitation because Rhodan's ID is hidden in the message. Sichu meets Rhodan on June 24, 1514 NGE in Bughassidow's private ship. She receives the remains of the Pelt and returns to Terrania. Rhodan accompanies Bughassidow to Rhea to avoid the Onryons for now.

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

I am loving the cycle so far! They are wasting no time, just standing around. It looks like they are not going focus heavily on Rhodan's granddaughter, but with good reasoning. Rhodan understands that being in his life usually goes badly for his family.

I'm glad there's so much going on. I just hope it's a while before we get one of the alien slice of life issues. They are so slow.

Die Rückkehr der JULES VERNE
The Return of the JULES VERNE
von Michael Marcus Thurner


With the approval of Solar Premier Cai Cheung, First Terran Arun Joschannan sends 2500 LFT-BOXES under the command of Colonel Girma Teshale to the Sol system to the Onryonen to show whom they are tangling with. Cheung asks Teshale, for whom a delivery of Perry Rhodan to the Onryons would be a conceivable option to temporarily wait outside the system. After learning about Sichu Dorksteiger's latest findings and approving the search for the black box of the HILDEGARD VON BINGEN, Cheung sends the slightly sociopathic TLS agent Ghiyas Khosrau to Andro-Delta via the Polyport network. He is supposed to contact Reginald Bull there. Bull is in Andromeda with the JULES VERNE, the Terrans' most powerful spacecraft, to investigate the disruptions of various Polyport Courts and Distributor Depots. The barbell spaceship has docked at the KO-Selfless, a Paddler shipyard platform, which is located in the Leém inhabited Apheé system with the Polyport Court DARWAG. Their contact in the platform is the whimsical robot Quick Silver.

Khosrau’s transport to DARWAG does not run smoothly and lasts unusually long. Similar problems in using the Polyport network have been occurring for quite some time. Khosrau's thoughts become confused. His Minor Globe MORGIANA is damaged and threatens to crash into the ice world Laúm. Bull sends three space jets to secure the MORGIANA. Bull, who has yet to get back at Khosrau because of an unpleasant incident long ago, is informed by the agent about the current situation in the Sol system. Bull immediately initiates the return of the JULES VERNE to the solar system - by means of a solar transmitter, as a safety precaution. Just before the departure Jawna Togoya is visited and warned by Quick Silver. The robot says the JULES VERNE is flying into a trap. He also manages to do something unobserved in the barbell ship, but what this is cannot be discovered at present.

Meanwhile, Shekval Genneryc has again contacted Cheung and prohibited further use of the Polyport network due to the disturbances in its systems. Sichu Dorksteiger investigates the seemingly dead remains of the Pelt that Rhodan had supplied her and is attacked by it. However, the thing breaks down into dust before it can do any damage. The JULES VERNE reaches the Sol system on June 28, 1514 NGE and is immediately attacked by numerous Onryon ships. Bull tests the performance of the enemy weapon systems. Three Space Fathers are destroyed with the Paratron launchers of the barbell ship. The Onryons finally bring the JULES VERNE into such distress that it must flee in Trafitron mode from the Sol system. Since it does not fly in linear space, the linear space torpedoes are ineffective. Shekval Genneryc promptly demands the extradition of the JULES VERNE. Since Cheung does not agree to this, he intervenes in the solar news network and declares the JULES VERNE as a fugitive. The person one who provides the crucial clue for the capture of the ship will receive a cell activator as a reward...
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I loved this issue. There was tension, humor and characterization galore. If this keeps up, this could end up my favorite cycle in a long time .

A side note: The next synopsis will be delayed a couple days beyond the norm, as I will be attending my son's college graduation and I'll lose a few days translation time. :D

Volume 2705
The Clan of the Unworthy
Die Sippe der Würdelosen
by Michael Marcus Thurner



Shekval Genneryc's offer does not only arouse indignant rejection among the inhabitants of the Sol system, for the prospect of relative immortality is very tempting. There are some spectacular individual actions. Someone tries to kidnap Cai Cheung, and another breaks into Perry Rhodan's house. Press, stars and celebrities spread the most diverse opinions. Colonel Girma Teshale says in a public statement that she believes Perry Rhodan should be extradited to the Onryones.

Mehandor Patriarch Audunt, the head of the Tusnetz -Sippe despised by all the other galactic traders, has been sitting with his VALLARD and more than a dozen other ships in the Sol system since the flight ban on linear flight established by the Onryones. Their funds are becoming scarce. Abanell, Audunt’s illegitimate son and deputy, wants to take Audunt’s place. He is backed by his intriguing lending sister Wawacoon but serves the Patriarch faithfully for the time being. After the destruction of the Terran aid convoys Audunt considers a new opportunity. Abanell offers Onryonen Ctamio Ifmald, who is guarding the debris field, the support of the Clan of the Unworthy and receives permission to salvage from the shipwrecks. This makes the clan interesting for Sichu Dorksteiger, because the Terrans are denied entry into the rubble field. In order to get to the black box of the HILDEGARD VON BINGEN, Dorksteiger makes a costly business deal with Abanell. Proving she is not as likely to cheat as Abanell believes, she arranges for the transfer of a hefty sum and gives the clan transport monopolies for some LFT-owned worlds. Abanell keeps his word too, retrieves the black box and hands it over to Dorksteiger.

Meanwhile, the JULES VERNE hides in the detection shadow of the sun PHP-39. Ghiyas Khosrau and his equipment are being investigated, as Reginald Bull believes that the TLS agent is a traitor or at least manipulated by the Onryones so that they could intercept Bull and thus the barbell ship on arrival at the Sol system. However, no abnormalities are detected. To be on the safe side, the agent should, at his own suggestion, use a space jet to be taken away from the ship. On the way to the hangar Khosrau’s left forearm develops a sinister life of its own. The arm releases itself from his body. Energy jets flick from its fingertips, killing two security guards and destroying multiple TARAs. Khosrau barely escapes death when his arm explodes. At the time, it is June 29, 1514 NGE, and the JULES VERNE attacks a fleet of Onryones. The enemy ships are shot to scrap. Boarding parties invade a smaller unit, apparently escorted by the others, and capture an injured Onryone. He is examined and identified. His name is Caileec Maltynouc and he is a Marshal - the personal confidant of Chuvs, a judge of the Atopic Tribunal. He is secretly pleased that the plan for him to be caught has worked. According to captured date, Chuvs is said to be at the black hole Tephaya in the center of the Milky Way. Bull rightly believes that he is being led into a trap, but cannot miss this possible opportunity, so the JULES VERNE heads there…
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I really enjoyed this issue. It's always fun to see the Springers again. If you know anything about Dungeons and Dragons - they are so Lawful/Chaotic!
And if I visualize the Khosrau storyline, it wold have made a nice little horror film short. Psychpath that he might be, the poor guy just has no luck.

Star Grave
Sternengrab
by Michael Marcus Thurner

The Onryone Caileec Maltynouc turns out to be a shapeshifter of the Jaj race. It becomes clear that his plan was to take over the JULES VERNE from the outset. For this he already influenced the TLS agent Ghiyas Khosrau during his Polyport transfer to Andromeda. Using Khosrau and his own skills, he poisons the crew of the JULES VERNE and influences them in an unknown manner. Only Reginald Bull and Jawna Togoya remain unaffected.

Matters come to a head at the black hole Tephaya. Part of the crew infected by the virus literally explode, causing indescribable chaos. Caileec Maltynouc disappears into an unknown hiding place. The Medostation is completely destroyed. The crew losses are painful, but Bull is certainly still not willing to give up the persecution of the Judge ship. When he issues corresponding orders, the affected crew sets in motion, leaving the spaceship on two cruisers and flying towards the black hole.

Reginald Bull is ready to sacrifice the JULES VERNE as well as himself to save the crew. At his side is the hologram of the Meta-runner Ilz Namib. This hologram triggers the Hypervastor Flash at the insistence of Bull, in order to dazzle a suddenly emerging fleet of Onryones and give the JULES VERNE enough time to destroy the attacking fleet. Bull sends Jawna Togoya who has saved his life from an explosion, to launch and control the four NAUTILUS sloops, while he takes the JULES VERNE closer to the cruisers. He manages to retrieve them, but the JULES VERNE can no longer escape the black hole. He wants to send the crew to safety on the NAUTILUS cruisers through a transmitter. But the normal transmitters are not operational due to the close proximity of the black hole. That's why Namib makes the so-called Trafitron Switch available to them. This makes the transmitter passage possible. All the crew members are ordered through, but Bull discovers that NEMO cannot survive long enough to give them all time to get through the transmitter. He flees to the White Hall, hoping that the technology of the Cosmocrats anchored there can give him time to save the crew. He is joined by Caileec Maltynouc, who at gunpoint grandly and triumphantly explains to Bull how he had accomplished everything he did.

Bull manages to convince the power controlling the White Hall to help him save the crew. But he and Maltynouc cannot make it out themselves. The black hole Tephaya destroys the JULES VERNE and spits out the debris.

Shortly thereafter, the surviving cruisers surprisingly discover the arrival of the robot Quick Silver, who quickly collects the alleged debris of the VERNE and disappears again…

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

RIP JULES VERNE. They destroyed her! NOOOOO..... I'll miss that ship. They never fully explored all the Meta-runner technology on it properly. Oh well,maybe we'll see more of at least the White Hall when they finally go back to Quick Silver and Bull later in the cycle. The actionis not stopping yet in this cycle. I hope it continues.

Brass Dreamers
Messingträumer
by Wim Vandemaan


Perry Rhodan is flying on Viccor Bughassidow's KRUSENSTERN. The ship is on its way to Bughassidow's homeworld Rhea in the Taranis system. Rhea is an earth-sized satellite of the gas giant Iapetos. It is mainly inhabited by Terrans. Cheborparners, Akones and Arkonides also live there. Bughassidow's estate is located on the Great Kernow continent near the major metropolis of New Trerice. Rhodan uses the travel time to first get together with his granddaughter Farye Sepheroa. Hes till leaves their familial relationship unmentioned.

Rhodan believes that he could temporarily submerge on Rhea, but already on June 25, 1514 NGE, the day of Rhodan's arrival, there appears a strange ship in the form of a flying wing with two hundred meters wingspan. The only creature on board is Dhayqe, who calls himself a Tesqire. He is an advocate of the Atopic Tribunal, and further Tesqires appear in the following period in the Wega and Illema systems, at the Swoon homeworld and in the Crystal Imperium. Dhayqe, an extremely slim humanoid with two elbow joints each, four-fingered hands, an oversized neck, an egg-shaped head, and snow-white skin, who is very friendly and informs them that he wants to promote the aims and purposes of the Tribunal. Pinar Cantanzaro, Administrator of the Taranis system, demands a thorough investigation of Dhayqe and his ship, the KEEN OF HEARING IS THE EAR OF JUSTICE. It shows that the ship is full of technology, which could just as well come from Terran production - except for the walls comprised of what Dhayqe refers to as Flexopärm, a flexible casing material, which has a strong memory effect. In addition, it is noted that Dhayqe's brain has many mirror neurons that allow him a strong natural empathy. He can thus adjust very well to moods and feelings of other living beings or even imitate them. Given that Dhayqe poses no threat, he Is allowed to land on Rhea while his ship remains in orbit. Ex USO-Agent Freeman Zennor, commander of the patrol vessel TRELAWNY is to shadow the stranger unnoticed.

Rhodan, Bughassidow and Marian Yonder visit the Museum of Automated Crafts on Rhea. They are looking for a plasma commander to equip the KRUSENSTERN with it and thus make it more efficient. Although there is such an offshoot of the Central Plasma of the Hundred Suns world in the MAC, it is too "out of it" and has no interest in leaving the museum. From Tean Gorsline, Rhodan and his companions acquire the information that there is a second plasma commander in the colony on the continent of Blostonia. The Arkonides living on Rhea are emigrated brass dreamers - users of a new technolgy, which is the latest craze among the noble Arkonides and was illegal in the Crystal Imperium for a while. The mental dreamer's Mental Dilation Helmets puts them into a networked virtual reality where time passes more slowly. A real year is equivalent to ten brass years, so a brass dreamer, if he lives exclusively in virtual reality, can experience more than one lifetime.

With the help of the German shepherd Samart, who belongs to a Posbi of the KRUSENSTERN, the plasma commander is tracked down to the funnel of the Arkonide Announ da Zoltral. Since Rhodan belongs to the family by marriage, he and his companions gain access. The bioplasma brain is itself a brass dreamer; in fact, it virtually creates the virtual reality in which the numerous (masculine and handsome) Lemurian descendants lounging around the funnel are living their adventures. Rhodan has to go into the brass dream to convince the plasma commander to move to the KRUSENSTERN.

In the meantime, Zennor follows his target at every turn. Dhayqe, with his friendly nature, gets on well with the Rheanans. When he appears on a talk show, he even manages to convince viewers of the legitimacy of the actions of the Atopic Tribunal - at least until two hundred forty Onryone spaceships materialize in the Taranis system. Their commander Becenna Toschk imposes a linear flight ban. All arriving and departing ships are to be checked. Thus, Rhodan and his friends (which now Announ da Zoltral belongs to) have come up with a trick to let them carry out Announ’s proposal to fly to Perkon in the Crystal Imperium. There in the property of the da Zoltral space shipyard DARRID, is the equipment needed to install the bioplama brain in the KRUSENSTERN. In addition, the required (including for the brass helmets) Balpirol semiconductors are manufactured on Perkon. Announ transported the plasma commander with her three hundred meter spacecraft HEYDRANGOTHA. The Onryonian inspectors are told that the plasma is an exotic food. The ship is allowed to fly on. The KRUSENSTERN with Rhodan on board follows.

Zennor follows Dhayqe into his hotel suite. The Tesqire wears a seemingly harmless medallion. In fact, it's a kind of biomechanical high-tech instrument that Dhayqe uses to stage his own abduction. Dhayqe flies to Space Port Penrhyn under a deflector screen and returns to his ship with a drifter (an autonomous cargo container). Zennor succeeds in following the Tesqire as well. But suddenly the deflector field of his combat suit goes out. Dhayqe knew that he was being shadowed all along...
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wow! Turning back the hands of time with his marriage to Thora. Cool! And plenty of espionage action to give my fill of excitement. I do hope that the Galactics keep having some successes as time goes on. :>

Four Against ITHAFOR
Vier gegen ITHAFOR
by Arndt Ellmer/Christian Montillon

The Polyport Court ITHAFOR-5 is nominally controlled by the Shadow Maahks but is de facto owned by the Blues. The Weddone Ghöllrysch stores the only existing A-controller in his office. Five hundred fifty ships of the Jülziish secure the yard form the Tefroder fleet whose commander Maalun currently carries out no actons, because otherwise the Onryones would intervene. However, the High Tamaron Vetris-Molaud secretly prepares the conquest of the Court. His Mutant Corps should prepare the way for the prepared landing troops. The four agents receive their orders in the Star of Apsuma, the seat of government of the New Tamanium on the planet Tefor . The Mutant Corps consists of:

Team leader Satafar. He has the face of an old man, the body of a ten-year-old child and the power of an Ertruser. With the drug Gholen he can temporarily smooth his facial skin, so that he really looks like a child.

Vital Telepath Toio Zindher. She can see the vital energy and moods of living things like an aura. So she can tell if someone is healthy or ill, and if he is lying or telling the truth.

Pain - or Paradox Teleporter Lan Meota . He can teleport himself and another person in a way nobody has ever known of before. For him, it is like crossing a strange landscape. The transport process always takes two minutes and nine seconds. This is associated with severe pain for him, so he has to recover afterwards. He can also move objects from up to four meters away without having to see or touch them. He cannot be stopped by multidimensional screens or para-traps.

Super scientist Trelast-Pevor. He has no real para-abilities, but no technological system is safe from him.
Shortly before the Mutant Corps, Tefrodian agents Benjuber-Wocaud and Holoter-Lyst arrive in the Polyport Court with bio-cocoons that let them appear to be Blues. They have no idea that they are intended to be sacrificed to provide a distraction for the Mutant Corps. Their comrades themselves ensure that the two agents are discovered and killed. Toio and the "rejuvenated" Satafar are posing as mother and child. Satafar pretends to be terminally ill and need B-hormone, which Toio is to acquire from a Jülziish woman giving birth. Lan Meota pretends to be a Terran middleman while Trelast-Pevor hacks the station systems. Toio, Satafar and Lan intentionally get themselves arrested.

When they discover the two have brought along a Dreadworm egg (of course it is only a replica), Polyport Court Administrator Ghoehlrysch and his Akonian security chief, Berháan ter Pikour, raise all the alarm bells. Ghöllrysch takes the prisoners to his office, giving them a chance to put Lan in the position to teleport the controller out of the safe. Satafar kills the security guards in the office with his tremendous physical strength, Lan teleports Berháan ter Pikour's brain out of his skull, and Trelast-Pevor remotely makes sure nobody else can enter the office. Ghoehlrysch has no choice but to surrender. Thus, ITHAFOR -5 is now in the hands of the Tefroders from July 9, 1514 NGE. In honor of the agents "fallen in the fight" Vetris-Molaud renames the Court WOCAUD.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am surprised at how reliably entertaining the cycle has been so far. Espionage, action, mutants... this issue has all the elements i love in a PR issue. I hope we get to see more of the Tefroder Mutant Corps once Gucky finally gets back in gear. The one problem I have with the whole thing is that Perry has a master controller, so once he gets clear for a bit, what is to stop him from deactivating the ITHAFOR-5 controller and taking it back from the Tefroders?

The Perfect Hunter
Der perfekte Jäger
By Susan Schwrtz


Shekval Genneryc instructs the Jaj – a shapeshifter - Leza Vlyoth, who is nicknamed the Perfect Hunter, with the capture or elimination of Icho Tolot. The Marshall is delighted, as hunting for a Haluter is the greatest challenge for him to date. With his spaceship XYANGO, as reconfigurable as he is, and a pool of his own excess body substance, Vlyoth travels and prepares. He needs help to determine the location of Tolot. In the guise of the Linguide Yoanu Quont , he recruits the rebellious young Anti Peo Tatsanor because he has - without even knowing it - very strong Para-abilities.

Vlyoth trains the Báalol as his apprentice and takes him to Tahun. There, the dying Haluter Fancan Teik is being looked after. Teik keeps his body permanently dense and reacts to nothing. The responsible physician, Dr. Athanasiu Boulgard XII, already knows Quont and gets blackmailed by him. Under the pretext of helping the Haluter, Tatsanor invades Teik's mind. He uses the drug Glass Frost (which the Jaj already uses himself), which strengthens their powers. Tatsanor wears down the Haluter with the technique of the fire of truth - mental torture - and receives the desired information. Fancan Teik dies from the attack.

Icho Tolot, the old Haluter Luto Faonad and Luto’s sixty-year-old child Avan Tacrol are exploring the Medusa planet Kamaad in the Orion Nebula. Tolot had returned from Anthuresta to the Milky Way in 1484 NGE and has been collaborating with Viccor Bughassidow. The Haluters have found relics of an unknown civilization on Kamaad: an artificially created milky ocean, a sculpture shaped like a giant eight-fingered hand, and a building that they call a termite mound. Vlyoth's ship reconfigures itself and takes the form of Teik's 350-meter MORAN spherical spaceship. It arrives at Kamaad on July 7, 1514 NGE. Vyloth destroys Tolot's spaceship HALUTA IV. Then he gets into the basin and absorbs all the amorphous biomass, because he needs it to take on a new form...

Not too bad an issue. Vlyoth is an interesting character. It will be interesting to see if he is a short term character or if they'll develop him/her/it over the cycle. The XYANGO reminds me a bit of the MIKRU-JON, but is probably not actually related it it. Next issue should be a lot of fun. The hunter and his protege/patsy versus three Haluters.- woo boy!
