When they arrive they cannot spot it. IT puts them through several more tests while stressing the Stardust II
and crew as much as possible. Khrest and Thora are rejected by IT, and Perry undergoes cell conservation
and chooses Bell as the only other person. He is warned that he must return every 62 years and be able to

trajectory into the main Positronic Brain. His error in programming the brain's defences causes them to be

codes. Various factions remaining from the Eastern Bloc fiasco are still infighting. Thora is `held captive' by
General Tomisenkow, while Rhodan, Marshall and Okura are shifting between groups. In the meantime, the
positronic brain has initiated Secret Barrier X, which prevents Bell from entering Venus' atmosphere in one

first  recruit,  Ted  McMurray.  While  Perry  attempts  to  track  them  down,  Elmer  Bradley  swindles  Homer
Adams into a $4 billion dollar loss for GCC, however even this is not enough to severely damage the New
Power.  Several  other  intrigues  occur,  of  which  the  most  important  is  the  kidnapping  of  Khrest.  Perry  is
unable to capture Monterny, but does foil his plans. He sends Betty Toufry to New York to protect Adams

hypnotic command from Monterny. This demonstrates to everyone how powerful he really is. The guppy K-
5  has  a  prominent  role.  Other  attempts  continue  both  in  Terrania  and  New  York  against  Adams.  Finally
Fellmer  Lloyd  catches  Tatjana  Michalowna  who  is  working  for  Monterny  based  on  her  naive  political
views. She is also the only mutant whom he cannot control. After realizing she has been duped she leads
Rhodan to his headquarters in Salt Lake City. A battle ensues where all the mutants are captured except
Monterny and his hole card mutant. Tifflor, following in destroyer Z-82, almost succeeds in tracking him as

fleet of three ships comes into action, the K-7 breaks off from the Springers. A fleet of 30 Springer ships
arrive, but are scared off by decisive action from the Terrans. During this action, Deringhouse orders Tiff,

Etztak is finally called in and two separate fleets arrive of over 150 ships. Bell runs Pucky into Snowman,
who proceeds to assist Tiff and harass both the Springers. Pucky discovers that Etztak is ready to destroy
Snowman completely rather than let other Springers arrive to spoil their potential find and that they have
been using robots to spy on the New Power locations. Perry leaves to attempt a return to Wanderer to arm
the Stardust with superior weapons, stopping at Venus first to find its current location. The ships Terra and
Solar System are left to oversee the situation. While hiding out, Pucky detects some thought patterns that
appear to be hibernating.

As they arrive back in the solar system, they must sidetrack to Earth after Freyt informs them that the robots
are  on  the  move.  Their  first  attempt  to  deactivate  them  appears  successful,  but  is  not.  As  Rhodan  gets
control of the New Power robots, utilizing Arkonide Transport suits and the Mutant Corps, particularly Ivan
the `Igniter', things go out of control in all the GCC locations. Combining with Mercant's Special Forces,
Rhodan's  groups  split  up  and  conquer  a  series  of  robot  forces  setting  themselves  up  as  independent
Emperors.  A  captured  robot  leads  Rhodan  to  their  control  location  on  Saturn's  moon  Titan.  The  missing
Guppy and Destroyers are located and eliminated en route to Venus, and the base is wiped out as well.

The  Mounders,  another  Springer  clan,  are  tracking  Perry  as  he  hyperjumps  to  Wanderer.  This  clan  was
alerted  by  communications  between  Orglans  and  Etztak.  Perry  arrives  on  Wanderer,  asking  for  a  new
`ultimate' weapon to beat the Springers. While there he experiences time travel, being sent 250,000 light
years to distant Barkon. This solar system has been traveling for over 1 million years away from the Milky
Way after having seeded the galaxy with humanoid races. Perry arrives at a time when they are converting
their planet into a spaceship to return to the galaxy. Perry and IT alter history by correcting a minor error
which would have caused them to fail and get caught in the supernova of their sun. On Barkon, he spends
10  weeks  reviewing  their  visual  history,  learning  many  secrets  of  the  origins  of  mankind.  They  consider
themselves the progenitors of the humanoid form, they invented Interkosmo, and after being saved they will
someday  save  the  universe  when  the  intelligent  races  realize  they  cannot  cross  the  abyss  between  the
galaxies. Having obtained 2 tele- (matter) transmitters, he clobbers 5 of Topthor's 8 ships, but lets the others
go.  Topthor  warns  Etztak  and  Orglans.  IT  shows  Perry  that  he  has  very  little  time  remaining  to  put  the

on Honur. Talamon commits to defending Earth with his 218 ships. Meanwhile, the Aras are still plotting
under the plan of Gegul. The plan calls for having the next conclave of Springer and Mounder Patriarchs on
the  moon  Laros  in  the  Gonom  System.  Laros  is  a  secret  biological  research  station  under  the  control  of
Keklos.  Keklos  is  experimenting  in  several  areas;  synthetic  "bio-men";  eternal  life;  and  a  new  secret
weapon made from the Basic Material from Gom. The Bio-Men are able to be intermediate transmitters for
this material. The Ganymede returns to Earth, while the Titan remains behind and Talamon's fleet goes into
hiding in an unnamed system 8,000 light years from Arkon. Gegul's plan to infect a Springer home world
that will not participate in the conclave backfires as the Titan heads for Exsar where Tiff goes into action.
The public announcement of the Ara treachery forces them to send medical assistance and seals Gegul's
fate. The Titan then proceeds to Laros, independently of Talamon. Talamon convinces Topthor to go in on
the  T-Steel  deal,  while  a  team  of  8  mutants  (Marshall,  Yokida,  Sengu,  Tschubai,  Kakuta,  Touffry,
Goratschin,  Ishibashi)  and  Bell,  lead  the  mission.  First  they  alter  the  location  of  Earth  in  Topthor's
positronic  computer  (Orion  -  Betelgeuse,  272  light  years  closer  to  Arkon),  then  they  manipulate  the
conclave as before. The mission is not completely successful as the "unknown entity" attacks the mutants
forcing a pullout. The Gazelle almost escapes but is telekinetically pulled to Gom. Perry must pull out and
leave them stranded. On Earth a structural compensator is installed in the Solar System.

Talamon holds his 200 ships in reserve for Perry should he need them. Topthor immediately realizes the
deception and heads for Akvon, but the battle rages as the Topides begin to fall. Ber-Ka trails Topthor to
Akvon as they cripple each other. They temporarily team up hoping to find a means of communicating with
the combat forces. When they do they both attempt to kill each other but Topthor wins. As he is informing
Cekztel of the deception Pucky puts him out of action. Bernda is sent out to find Topthor but only finds the
enemy troops joined together under Gatzek, and Topthor dead. Deringhouse destroys the troops but Gatzek
and Bernda survive. As the battle rages, the dictator send an additional 200 ships to keep the action going,
but it is not enough. The Titan and the two heavy cruisers make multiple appearances but purposefully do
not swing the tide in the Topides favor. Cekztel despachs an Arkon bomb to planet 3 and destroys it. Perry
realizes that this is not enough and stages the destruction of the Titan and himself using the talents of the
teleporters. This convinces the Springers, Mounders, Aras, and the Regent that Earth has been destroyed.
