Endstation Cestervelder
Terminus Cestervelder

By Michelle Stern

The ZHOL-BANNAD is boarded by the Onryones. The surviving Proto-Hestotes are captured and interrogated. The Onryones realize that the leader of the Proto-Hetostes they were looking for was actually on board but fled to the planet Cestervelder in the Lajuures subdomain. One of the prisoners is in fact not a Laren, but the masked Onryone woman Karynar. She takes off her mask, breaks out of her cell and goes to Guol Chennyr, the commander of the Space Father SPINYNCA. Karynar is a radical historian and intensively studied the Atopic Ordo. So she found out about the horrors caused by the Atopic Tribunal and went incognito to the Larens. She tries to convince Guol Chennyr that the Atopic Tribunal has by no means brought salvation to Larhatoon. A germ of doubt has been laid, but Guol Chennyr shoots the woman dead.

Perry Rhodan, Avestry-Pasik and Selthantar pass several Transposts and rematerialize in a station on Cestervelder, a destroyed world with a shattered moon. Exceptionally, it is not the Onryones who are responsible for this, but the Larens themselves. What happened at that time is what Rhodan learns from the station positronics. At this point, his body is fighting poisoning that he suffered from an insect attack. Since the cell activator struggles to neutralize the deadly poison, Rhodan's visions, in which he sees Orana Sestore and Icho Tolot mix with the information from the positronics. After the collapse of the Council of Seven caused by Rhodan, the Larens and Hyptons fought mercilessly. Subsequent generations blame Rhodan, the Hetork Tesser, for each individual death. Rhodan later learns from Avestry-Pasik that the Kelosks prevented greater chaos in Larhatoon and then became the first target of the Atopic Tribunal. Their home Shyor is now the central world of Shyoriccs, serving as a residence for the Crystalline Judge and is under his protection.

Selthantar also has visions. They come over him particularly strongly when he and his two companions fly to a refugee with a glider. He believes he has contact with a winged insect called Ereshigol, who calls him Faevhudio. Only now does he remember that he has been to Cestervelder at some point in the past and experienced something there that he does not want to think about. Suddenly the glider's systems fail and it crashes…
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What a great action issue! So much goes on and we see the first possible crack in the Atopic Tribunal. I'm having a great time with this cycle. Perry has a lot to learn and is in right place to learn it. Now he finally has an idea of why he is so hated here.

2754 The Destroyed World

Beitrag von jerrys109 »

Nr. 2754

The Destroyed World
Die zerstörte Welt

By Michelle Stern and
Christian Montillon

The crash of the glider was not an accident. Selthantar brought it about because he is "possessed" by the consciousness of the Elshesti Faevhudio. These insectoid beings were the indigenous people of the planet Isnio, which is now called Cestervelder. They were exterminated by the Larens two thousand years ago because they were a danger to the Mastibekks, who wanted to feast on the spirit of the Elshesti but were destroyed along with their pyramids. The reason for this was the life rods - small implants in which the entire content of the consciousness of an Elshesti could be saved, which enabled them to live after death. They had developed this technique when their people were threatened by an epidemic. Such a life rod is in Selthantar's head. He received it when he first visited Cestervelder. He had also crashed with a glider at that time, his companion Farintur dying soon after in a fall into an abyss. Selthantar had been manipulated since then by the undead Elshesti.

All of this gradually becomes clear as Perry Rhodan and Avestry-Pasik follow the Lajuure into a cave system in search of their glider that has slipped into an abyss. Faevhudio's awareness comes to the fore and leads the group to catacombs, in which innumerable mummified Elshesti are stored. They are neither alive nor dead, as many of them wake up and attack. The Elshesti had had contact with a Tesqire some time ago and have since been convinced that the Atopic Tribunal has tamed the evil to which they owe their downfall - this evil is the Larens. Faevhudio made sure that the Onryones had Avestry-Pasik's trail. In fact, Guol Chennyr and his people are already on the move there. They suffered a small setback because the station of connectedness destroyed itself. They then entered the cave system.

Rhodan tries to change Faevhudio's position and once again uses his reputation as Hetork Tesser. Through the ruthlessness of the Onryones, the Elshesti recognize that the Atopic Tribunal cannot be trusted. Faevhudio and a few other Elshesti take Rhodan's side and lead them to a transmitter. But the Onryones follow. Rhodan leaves Avestry-Pasik the Vectorion and pushes him through the transmitter that will be destroyed shortly thereafter. Guol Chennyr captures Rhodan. Selthantar, who regains his identity, remains with the Elshesti. They lead him to Farintur, which was actually saved by the Elshesti.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Another action packed issue, where some mysteries get aired and Perry ends up in a worse situation than before. It was loads of fun and I can't wait to see where it leads next.

2755 The Guilt Master

Beitrag von jerrys109 »

Nr. 2755

The Guilt Master

Der Schuldmeister

By Michael Marcus Thurner

Guol Chennyr is keen to know where Bostich and Avestry-Pasik are. Since Perry Rhodan refuses to provide any information despite various types of ill treatment, he is brought to the planet Kaidhan in the Haoshall system, where Guilt Master Tontosd from the avoid Ollcaden people takes him over. In the next few days, Rhodan will be mentally and physically worn down in Tontosd's estate. The sadistic interrogator drugs Rhodan and secretes hormones that make the Terran’s resistance weaken and cause horrifying hallucinations. In between, Rhodan is allowed to listen to the terrible screams of Scoltermon, another prisoner of Tontosd. One day Rhodan gets visited by a younger version of Baudencerc - who claims to be true Baudencerc. The Greiko that Rhodan had encountered in the Counterfactual Museum is said to have been taken from a void universe, a parallel universe in which the prophecies of the Atopic Tribunal had become a reality. The two Baudencerc variants form a counterfactual dimorph. The younger Baudencerc has been commissioned by the Atopic Tribunal to make the violence addicted Ollcades reasonable supporters of the Atopic Ordo. With some (like Tontosd) he has not yet succeeded. Baudencerc is not allowed to help Rhodan. Nevertheless, he does what he can for the Terran.

Rhodan proves to be particularly unruly and tries to escape. That is why Tontosd uses other means. He presents a sarcophagus with the preserved, still living body of Roi Danton. Rhodan's son was badly battered. Tontosd is preparing to continue the torture before Rhodan's eyes. Rhodan sees through the deception. He had previously heard from Baudencerc that Ollcaden could not stand the sight of dead flesh that came loose from the bone. Danton is suffering exactly this fate now, but Tontosd remains completely unaffected by it. Rhodan acts as if he wants to close a deal with Tontosd: information against Danton's release. The Ollcade responds and frees Danton from the sarcophagus. When Danton incorrectly answers a trick question from Rhodan, he can be absolutely certain that his alleged son is just a kind of marionette. He manages to surprise Tontosd, taking him hostage. Scoltermon intervenes. He is not in fact a victim of torture, but another master of torture. He is the one that created the fake Danton marionette.

Baudencerc intervenes when the two Ollcades bicker over who may torture Rhodan further. He declares Rhodan's interrogation failed. Rhodan is brought back to the SPINYNCA. From now on, an Atope will personally take care for Rhodan. Judge Saeqaer has just arrived with her double- sphere ship CHEMMA DHURGA, which translates to CRADLES OF LOVE...
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wow! This issue accomplished nothing, but it was certainly an excited case of running in place! I love issues where they play head games with Perry. I always enjoy it when we get to see how Perry's mind operates. Thurner is a very vivid writer and it really sucks me into the story. Even realizing that this story didn't accomplish anything vital did not ruin my enjoyment of it.

2756 The Ship of the Judge

Beitrag von jerrys109 »

Nr. 2756

The Ship of the Judge

Das Schiff der Richterin

Marc A. Herren


A sloop from the CHEMMA DHURGA brings Perry Rhodan to Judge Saeqaer's spaceship. As of now, the Onryones are no longer responsible for him. The sloop is controlled by the Black Bacctou, an artificial creature with a humanoid torso and an angular block instead of legs. Bacctou looks like he was hewn from a single chunk of black marble. He is friendly and tries to imitate Rhodan, but answers most questions cautiously at best. The Judge’s ship consists of two snow-white, crystalline globes. An elliptical circlet encompasses both spherical cells. Rhodan must remain in the two-kilometer Globe Two but may move freely in this hollow-shaped cell. Globe One has a diameter of one kilometer, is the Judge's seat and taboo for Rhodan.

In the following days, Bacctou literally accompanies Rhodan every second of the day and night. He is becoming more and more like the Terran. Rhodan gets to know different races in Globe Two. Among others, the multi-armed Siwives and the humanoid Valvdiger live in Globe Two. Rhodan makes many new friends, and the Valvdiger woman Kharingo even falls in love with him. Spaceship wrecks lying everywhere suggest that all of these beings have been picked up as castaways by Saeqaer at some point. Nobody from the current generation can still remember this time. All castaways regard the CHEMMA DHURGA (the "Cradle of Love") as their home. Rhodan gains respect through his extensive technical knowledge. Therefore, he is allowed to attend a meeting of the speakers of all the homes. To his surprise, Rhodan notices that answers to the three Ultimate Questions are being discussed - however, these questions have a different wording:

What is happening behind the horizon of the LAW?
On which side of the mirror of Creation does the questioner exist?
Who owns time?

Bacctou believes that the Ultimate Questions are part of what holds the cosmos together at its core. He assumes that the local questions are essentially the same as Rhodan's - they have simply assumed a different "state of matter".

With the help of his new friends, Rhodan designs an aircraft with which he explores the hollow world. He does not find an escape option. Then he receives an audience with Saeqaer. The judge is a reptilian and apparently she is pregnant. Like Bacctou, she speaks in riddles. Rhodan tries to provoke her, but only manages to end the audience. In a second conversation, Rhodan learns that the Hereafter Lands are "out of time" and can only be reached with a Judge’s ship. When Saeqaer claims that a Judge’s ship can only be steered by someone who has been beyond the Matter Sources, Rhodan tries not to think of Atlan , because the Atope does not seem to know the Arkonide - or does she know him and has set a cleverly constructed trap into which Atlan (which may be identical to the Third Cardinal Fractor of the Milky Way) should fall ? Rhodan doesn't know what to make of it, but he knows Atlan will have an important role to play in the fight against the Atopic Tribunal.

But first of all, Rhodan would have to escape from the CHEMMA DHURGA. Before Rhodan can start recovering usable parts from the spaceship wrecks, Bacctou's metamorphosis is nearing completion. The artificial being forms legs and becomes a perfect look-alike for Rhodan. Rhodan tries to put Saeqaer under pressure by loading Bacctou into the aircraft with Kharingo's help and pretending to attempt a suicide to destroy Bacctou. Things go wrong. The plane crashes, and Rhodan loses consciousness. He comes to himself in a fictiv transmitter, which is probably in Globe One. Bacctou also survived. Saeqaer announces that she still has big plans for Rhodan. Then the Terran is put to sleep. He dreams of his granddaughter Farye Sepheroa and Vetris-Molaud.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

OK, we've had Thomas Cardiff impersonating Perry, we've had parallel universe Perry's impersonating him and now we have Black Bacctou transforming into a copy of him. I'm interested in seeing if they can do something original with him, but we'll have to wait for a number of weeks before they get back to this action scene. The issue was alright, but it's questionable how pivotal it will be. At least Atlan seems about to come back onto the stage. I've missed him.

2757 The Problem Child

Beitrag von jerrys109 »

On January 2, 1455 NGE, the Tefroder Caer-Cedvan was born in Thonoriom, a cavern city of the airless planet Gloster in the Helitas system. The boy is deformed because his father Caer-Vetris suffers from Schaspander's disease, a genetic defect. The boy had to undergo many surgeries in the years that followed but was never completely healthy. He became a bookworm; he was particularly impressed by the Lemurians and Perry Rhodan. Caer-Cedvan admired the immortal Terran and emulated him. He regarded Rhodan's fight against the Masters of the Island as treason - an aberration that, in his opinion, was caused by too close a bond with ES.

Like many other residents of Gloster, Caer-Cedvan's family also suffered from the spread of the Jülziish in the Helitas system, which was promoted by the corrupt Tamrat Gavac-Semol. Even the criminal activities of the Yü Cenrik clan were tolerated. Yeyer Gwethry from this clan particularly targeted the valuable Xhan pearls that only occur on Gloster. They consist of howalgonium, which was transformed into unique gems in the stomachs of the insectoid Xhan. When Caer-Cedvan was allowed to participate in a Xhan hunt to celebrate his twelfth birthday, he and his older brother Caer-Jusiv were come across by Yeyer Gwethry and his entourage. Caer-Jusiv was humiliated, but on this occasion Caer-Cedvan Yeyer met Gwethry's body slave Ringület, whom he befriended. The friendship broke up some time later because Caer-Cedvan prevented Ringület from playing a life-threatening game that the young Jülziish hoped to gain his freedom with, but which would have only brought him death. Caer-Cedvan's fun-loving sister Caer-Betoo wanted to cheer up her brother and asked her lovers, the Itidal twins, for help. These expose the young Tefroder to a crystal flash. This was created by hypercrystalline fragments overloading and through the released lightning you experience a spiritual high. But things went wrong: Most of Caer-Cedvan's body surface was burned by it.

Caer-Cedvan survived. Khorcast-Itidal, the father of the twins, initially paid for the expensive treatment, but soon moved to Tefor and stopped paying. In 1472 NGE the Cheborner Special Ship CZONDROSZ GHASZTORAC lands on Gloster. Spälneyer, an Eyleshion, is on board as guest of the commander Klasczarnior Vlaszoryn (KlaV). The man is a bioarchitect. His Mola'uds - biomechanical scorpion-like creatures - can rebuild any living being from scratch and thus heal every ailment. This applies not only to Caer-Cedvan’s burn scars, but also to his genetic defect. Only later does Caer-Cedvan learn that the treatment must be repeated regularly. It is not clear to him whether this is true or whether Spälneyer just wants to make maximum profit from it. The procedure is also extremely painful and the cost is so high that Caer-Vetris is forced to collect Xhan beads in bulk. He gets in the way of Yeyer Gwethry. On the day of Caer-Cedvan's full healing, the Yü Cenrik clan raided his parents' home and killed the whole family. Ringület had previously tried unsuccessfully to warn Caer-Jusiv. Caer-Cedvan was informed by the investigator Oc Shozdor, whose superiors want to cover up the matter on behalf of the Tamrat. Since Oc Shozdor's family also suffered from the Jülziish, he did not want to participate in the cover-up. Instead, he joined Caer-Cedvan, who was now not only physically a completely new Tefroder and founded a resistance movement whose goal was to expel all Jülziish from the Helitas system and the overthrow of the Tamrat. Officially, Caer-Cedvan died with the rest of the family. He took on a new name: Vetris-Molaud.

In the next few years Vetris-Molaud became the head of the underground. In Ashya Thosso, a member of the fleet, he found an important helper (and temporary lover), who enabled him on August 5, 1475 NGE to take the first big blow. Vetris-Molaud was captured and tortured by henchmen of the Yü-Cenrik clan to convince Yeyer Gwethry that masses of Xhan pearls were stored in the CZONDROSZ GHASZTORAC. He did not notice that Ringület recognized him. Vetris-Molaud correctly assessed Yeyer Gwethry's lust for Xhan pearls. The Jülziish personally led a boarding commando team, which carried out a massacre among the Cheboparners. This was filmed by Vetris-Molaud's people and later broadcast publicly. The aim was to incite the population to rebellion. The fact that Vetris-Molaud and his friends intervened but did not help KlaV and the other Cheboparners and killed all the Jülziish, is of course cut out. Vetris-Molaud did not even spare Ringület, who supported him against Yeyer Gwethry.

In the aftermath, the Jülziish ambassador Acyer Cyyth put the Tamrat under pressure. He wants Vetris-Molaud and his companions at all costs.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I was pleasantly surprised by this issue. I don't normally enjoy alien slice of life issues, but this one was quite good. It certainly fleshed out Vetris-Molaud's motivations against the Jülziish. I'm glad that the guest writer, Tanja Kinkel, fit in so well. Now we'll see what happens next issue, in the second half of this story, with the other guest writer. I hope the two authors had some contact with each other, so that the styles change is not too jarring.

2758 The Tamaron

Beitrag von jerrys109 »

2758
Der Tamaron
The Tamaron
By Gisbert Haefs

In 1489 NGE, the Tefroders of the Helitas system were still ruled by the Jülziish of the Accayü clans. Tamrat Gavac-Semol is little more than a puppet of the real ruler, the Blues ambassador Acyer Cyyth. Vetris-Molaud is considered dead, but the resistance he founded is still alive. The underground organization of the Vetrides is more active than ever. Tugnal-Orton, the greatest Tefroder researcher in the field of Lemurian and ancient Tefrodian technology (possibly a descendant of the Master of the Island Regnal-Orton), claims to be developing new but well-known technology. He claims to be able to complete a cell activator and a multi-duplicator soon. But that's just a diversion. In truth, Tugnal-Orton is a Vetride, as is secret service officer Oc Shozdor, spaceship commander Ashya Thosso and her bodyguard, pain teleporter Lan Meota. They are all working on the long-term Operation Ragnarök plan, which will soon enter the final phase.

For fifteen years now the Jülziish repeatedly lead punitive actions against the Vetrides, including against Vetris-Molaud’s supposed wandering grave on the planet Gloster. The city of Thonoriom, among other things, was destroyed by the heavy bombing. On September 27, 1489 NGE Ashya Thosso conducts another punitive action from her ship HENCOR FHAN. A cave system hidden deep beneath Thonoriom is uncovered, in which a more than 50,000 year old Lemurian base is located. Thosso's first officer Dehodhat Theytin discovers an extremely unusual monument there. In a circular cavern there are countless dead Lemurs, destroyed robots and wrecks. All of them were preserved by a transparent substance - as were eleven dead Haluters standing around a hill. There the statue of a triumphant Lemurer rises in front of a sculpture that represents an asymmetrical star. Similar, but smaller stars lie between the Haluters. It is later determined that these are combat drones; a mixture of biological, mechanical and hyper-energetic weapon, which the Haluters fell victim to - even the structural transformation of their bodies was ineffective against these Crystal Claws.

Theytin personally reports to Gavac-Semol. Cyyth decides that the examination of the Crystal Claws is the responsibility of the fleet, which causes displeasure among the agents of the Transparent Island. The Crystal Claws are transported to the hollow Achimatiou on Achimat, a moon of the gas giant Laumhu in Helitas system. During the audience in the Tamaghat, Theytin meets one of the three wives of the Tamrat. Her name is Toio Zindher. She begins an affair with the charismatic officer and quickly finds out that he is hiding his true identity. She confesses that she recognized this with a para-ability that she kept secret. He confirms her suspicions. His real name is Vetris-Molaud. The Mola'ud scorpions of Spälneyer not only keep him alive but also change his appearance if he so wishes. Toio Zindher becomes the resister's newest ally.

Theytin is stylized into a hero by the media. He soon enjoyed such a great public reputation that a political career would be conceivable. This is convenient for Cyyth. The ambassador wants a more friendly politician and the disempowerment of the corrupt Jülziish clans. Theytin is to replace the old Tamrat, whose resignation is recorded immediately. Theytin / Vetris-Molaud asks for time to think, because Cyyth's offer opens up completely new possibilities for Operation Ragnarök. All preparations are made quickly. The Exeget malware is infiltrated into the Blues flagship BLYTTRIC, so that it hits the Achimatiou depression on October 4, whereupon the moon breaks apart and is devoured by a hyperspace tear. Then BLYTTRIC fires on the Tamaghat. Large parts of Apsumas are destroyed before the HENCOR FHAN manages to shoot down the Blues ship. Gavac-Semol, Acyer Cyyth and the Tefroder fleet commander, whose position is immediately taken over by Thosso, are among the many millions killed.

Now Vetris-Molaud drops his mask. He turns to his people, who are fully behind him, as a legitimate new Tamrat and drives the Jülziish out of the Helitas system. The assets of the Accayü clans are confiscated. The Jülziish return with reinforcements, but the Sneaker computer virus developed by Tugnal-Orton ensures that the energy screens of the Blues ships fail. After two thirds have been destroyed by the Tefrodic fleet, the rest flee. Vetris-Molaud is celebrated as the savior, liberator and keeper of Lemurian continuity. He has the vision of a new era - a new Tamanium is to be created, maybe even a Milky Way- wide Kar'Tamanon one day.

Even in 1509 NGE, apart from the few confidants of Vetris-Molaud, nobody still knows what really happened twenty years ago and that not all the Crystal Claws were lost with Achimat's demise. Tugnal-Orton has secretly "lost" a few. Vetris-Molaud's power has been consolidated, but he is still dependent on Spälneyer's Mola'ud scorpions. That should change now. On February 15, Toio Zindher introduced him to someone she had recently met. A man in the body of a child and with the powers of an Oxtorner enters Vetris-Molaud's service. His name is Satafar. The first of his many victims will be Spälneyer...
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My goodness, that Vetris-Molaud is a bad man, isn't he. Viciously pragmatic and willing to do whatever he needs to get his way. One more part of this historical trilogy to go. It's been alright up till now, but I'm beginning to tire of it. I want to proceed, not backtrack.

Meanwhile, everyone stay safe and stay healthy. It's a scary time, but we have have confidence that we'll get through it.

Your wish is instantly granted. The next issue is not historical but brings forward progress (depending a little on the point of view)

2759 The Brass Games

Nr. 2759

The Brass Games
Die Messingspiele

By Christian Montillon

The mental dilation helmets, also known as brass helmets, continue to enjoy great popularity, especially among the Arkonides, but members of other races are now also enthusiastically designing virtual environments that are more real for some of their "residents" than the real reality. In January 1517 NGE the first Brass Games take place on Phanwaner, the main world of the Arkonide Phan star barony. The best brass players of the Milky Way gather in the metropolis Pohepadh in the Arena of Star Showers to create a perfect virtual world.

The Guests of honor are Viccor Bughassidow, the main sponsor of the games, and the Tefrodian Maghan Vetris-Molaud. Both are pursuing their own goals with their visit to Phanwaner. Bughassidow hopes the brass dreamers will provide valuable clues in the search for the dark world of Medusa, especially the three Posbi plasma commanders who want to take part in the games. Vetris-Molaud, on the other hand, strives to integrate the star barony into the New Tamanium. Phan would be the first non-Tefrodian state to join the Tamanium, but the decision is far from being made, at least if it depends on Nert-moas Carost da Stencer and Keon'athor Laalou da Gondh, the head of state of the barony and the top commander of the local Crystal Empire forces. Bughassidow is warmly welcomed and makes contact with the Posbis. The plasma commander of BOX-20125 promises that he will act as Bughassidow's advocate to the Hundred Suns World and participate in the search for Medusa itself. Vetris-Molaud, on the other hand, not only has to put up with rejection on the part of the imperial commander - immediately after his arrival on Phanwanian, unknown persons perpetrate an assassination attempt on the Tefrod ruler, which fails, however.

The Tamaron does not intend to reach his goal through diplomatic channels anyway. In addition to the three companions who were granted Vetris-Molaud, Lan Meota and Satafar secretly infiltrate. Canta Oldoron, the only Tefrod brass dreamer and specialist in Balpirol semiconductors, belongs to Vetris-Molaud's entourage. He takes part in the Brass Games that begin on January 3 and dominate all media reports. After a week it is time to strike. Vetris-Molaud kills two birds with one stone. Five robot spaceships of the EPPRIK class are manipulated so that they destroy Vetris-Molaud’s sloop TEFOR, while at the same time Balpirol protein conductors – posbi-viruses - are smuggled into the three BOXES. Satafar, whose self-confidence has been severely compromised since he was defeated by agent Ghenis Tay (she has an artificial hand with which she can shoot poison arrows, among other things), is set to murder the Grand Baron. This proves to be unnecessary, because debris from the robot ship shot down by the VOHRATA causes (not quite according to plan) the heaviest devastation in Pohepadh. The Grand Baron dies, and Satafar is buried. The mutant can free himself, but it is deaf. He runs amok and is eventually killed.

Vetris-Molaud can now act as a rescuer with the ships waiting at the edge of the system. The Onryones also appear. The Phar-Arkonide emissary Niaben da Thoctar, with whom Vetris-Molaud had reached an agreement some time ago, temporarily takes over government affairs and asks for the star barony to be incorporated into the New Tamanium.

The KRUSENSTERN leaves the system in good time before a flight ban imposed by the Onryones takes effect. The plasma commander of the BOX-20125 sets course for a secret Posbi world, the position of which it does not want to reveal to Bughassidow. However, it allows the KRUSENSTERN to follow a beacon impulse using a semi-space detector. The VOHRATA secretly follows both ships…
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yep Nanogainger, we are back in the present. :D

What an action piece this was! Vetris-Molaud is literally getting away with murder here. And he's in the process of spreading it to the poor Posbis. While his Mutant Corps is getting decimated, he callously moves on with his scorpion modified agents, reinforcing my opinion of his being a real bastard. I can't wait to see what happens next. And the poor KRUSENSTERN has no idea what it is getting into.

Keep washing those hands everyone. I want you all to stick around. B-)

2760 Posbi Paranoia

Beitrag von jerrys109 »

2760
Posbi-Paranoia
By Leo Lukas

Somewhere in empty space, more than 100,000 light years away from the Milky Way, the KRUSENSTERN has to make an orientation stop because of a hyperstorm, and it also loses the navigation beam from the BOX-20,125. The Fragment ship cannot be located, nor is the VOHRATA whose presence has not escaped the crew of the KRUSENSTERN. ADAM, the plasma commander of the KRUSENSTERN, has an explanation for the disappearance of the BOX. Its goal can only be the secret shipyard planet Everblack. This dark world is surrounded by an energy damping field, into which the BOX has now apparently entered. The coordinates of Everblack are known to ADAM, so that the world can be approached. The Posbis of the Oblast advise caution. The KRUSENSTERN therefore makes contact under the original identifier BOX-3206. A story is constructed about their alleged centuries-long expedition flight. This includes the fiction that the Ara doctor Jatin oversees the plasma commanders and is re-cloned again and again when she dies. This explains the existence of life support systems, which is unusual for a Fragment ship, recreational facilities and the like. The idiosyncratic structures of the outer shell are concealed. Viccor Bughassidow, Marian Yonder, and Peo Tatsanor (who has been doing services for Jatin since his capture) are hidden inside particularly large Posbis. With specially reconstructed individual absorbers, they are made invisible to the Posbis. All other human crew members are placed in hibernation and hidden in the depths of the KRUSENSTERN.

The precautionary measures are more than necessary, because something is wrong with Everblack. It looks like the Posbis suddenly see Terrans as enemies planning their gradual eradication. The BOX-3206 is undergoing an inspection, because there could be nasty Terrans in it. The humanoid Posbi Tetoon takes part in the inspection, a copy of the latest series with its own ÜBSEF constant, which is of the same series as Jawna Togoya. Tetoon is particularly familiar with Terran culture, considers himself a Buddhist and deals with the ancient art of Ikebana - at least that was the case until the BOX-20125 landed on Everblack. Since then, it has been subject to a particularly strong degree of the effect that Bughassidow and his friends soon call "Posbi-Paranoia". It is thanks to Tatsanor's para- ability that the Posbis cannot break through the protection of the individual absorbers. The BOX-3206 is allowed to land, and a delegation consisting of Bughassidow, Yonder and Tatsanor in Posbi camouflage as well as some Oblast-Posbis can look at Everblack. The persecution madness of the Everblack Posbis is getting worse. The Posbi Oblast Vescer-67 says it bluntly: "They are insane, the Everblacks!" In addition, Everblack is obviously switching its production to weapon systems that are particularly effective against living things. Terms such as paratron armor, dazzle shields and cerebral irritators are caught.

Tetoon's mistrust of the BOX-3206 does not diminish. He watches the delegation closely and finally sets a trap in his accommodation, which he equips with numerous gun emplacements. But he did not count on the fighting power of the old Oblast Posbis, whose energy screens are reinforced by Tatsanor. Tetoon is overwhelmed, brought to the KRUSENSTERN and examined. It turns out that its bioplasma and hypertoyctic interlocking are infested with prion-like foreign substances. Although they are artificially created and programmed pathogens, they are a real disease. This Posbi epidemic is transmitted via the plasma supply and disposal systems and leads to increasing paranoia. An antidote could theoretically be made, but not with the KRUSENSTERN on-board means. As a precaution, the KRUSENSTERN Posbis are placed in quarantine, and security measures are also taken for ADAM.

In the meantime, the Everblackers go completely crazy, and Tetoon is particularly hard hit. He only feels hatred for the Terrans now. Bughassidow already has a vague idea who could be responsible for the Posbi paranoia. The assumption is confirmed when the Everblackesr begin to rave about the arrival of a Savior - this is also a symptom of their brain softening. The VOHRATA and other Tefroder ships actually appear by Everblack. The Maghan is well on the way to "turning over" the Terran's oldest and most loyal allies and using them for his own purposes, because it is only a matter of time before Posbi paranoia spreads across the entire robot civilization. Since there are currently no alternatives anyway, the KRUSENSTERN remains by Everblack for the time being to continue watching…

My goodness. I may be reading this years later, but this issue is certainly timely for me. (Yes, I have slightly twisted sense of humor)

I really enjoyed this issue. The Posbis always give me a bit of the creeps, considering how they can turn on you with the flick of a switch. It's nice to see that Tatsanor is starting to get his head straightened. Hopefully, they'll build his character up further.

2761
The Heirs of Lemuria
Die Erben Lemurias
By Hubert Haensel


All the Lemurian solar transmitters are under the control of the Galacticum. The Akones have been used as switching masters for them. This people, uprooted since the destruction of their home planet Drorah, have since settled mainly on the adjustment worlds of the transmitters. This includes on Suaraan, the control world of the Vengil Trio. The expansion of the settlement was strongly promoted in 1517 NGE, as was the connection of the Vengil Trio to the solar transmitter network. However, no connection to other systems has yet been established.

In mid-February 1517 NGE, the leading transmitter technician Vertron Es-Solmaan explored the 442nd floor of a control pyramid on Suaraan. There he discovers the life-size, all-metal statue of a man, which according to an inscription is probably Zeno Kortin IV. The man is wearing a hat with a fine veil on it. Vertron Es-Solmaan feels watched by the statue's eyes shining in the 5D spectrum. Time seems to be slowing down as he tries in vain to lift the veil. The Akone is intrigued and returns to the statue later. He finds that it absorbs hyper energy. Then a space alarm rings out.

An explosion inside a nearby hyperstorm has been located. A 66-meter Jülziish dinghy approaches the system, does not respond to paging and is gripped by tractor beams, but explodes. Examination of the debris shows that the Blues crew must have died days or weeks ago. Pocor Ragnaar, the Governing Councilor of the adjustment world, has a suspicion that will soon be confirmed. With the support of the Toloceste On the Timeline and the Onryone Guldhyn Yoccorod there is a large Tefrodic fleet in the process of crossing the hyperstorm in order to be able to approach the solar transmitter unnoticed. Lan Meota was on board the Blues dinghy. He teleported himself to Suaraan with the two special agents Ghenis Tay and Bunccer-Buhaam. He felt watched during this process. For the first time in his life, the teleportation took longer than the usual two minutes and nine seconds. The agents prepare the ground for conquering the adjustment world by releasing a hallucinogen in the control pyramid.

Kajane Paxo, the Tefrod expedition leader, personally leads the invasion. The Akones have secured the Central Control Room with a Paratron screen, but Lan Meota eventually finds a gap. Again he notices the presence of a stranger during the teleportation. He does not know that it is the statue. Pocor Ragnaar and Vertron E Solmaan get paralyzed by the agent. Thus, the solar transmitter is conquered for the New Tamanium on February 19th. Vertron Es-Solmaan becomes a collaborator to further examine the statue.

I must say that I find this issue a bit of a slow slog to get through. I didn't really care about the characters and can only assume that the solar transmitter will become important later on. And I suppose that the statue will speak to someone in the next issue and we'll get a historical data dump. Maybe that will catch my fancy. Hopefully, it will. :>
