"Listen, Cap, I got this all figured out, " his composure slowly returned, "if the frequency output of each beacon is recalibrated to one eighth of the prior, then it'll created an octave, like musical notes. The five octaves should resonate, and act like a giant beacon. It's the same effect as planetary harmonics."

During the three days of down time, O'Hara nearly went out of his mind with anticipation. Fortunately, Swain and the others were there to bolster his confidence, lend their emotional support, and lead him to believe that there was no way the old man was going deny them such an opportunity.

Admiral Lay's new Eon colony was a short distance from the Phoenix's first landing near the original dig site. The large ship slowed to a hover and released the hydraulic, landing stilts. Upon touching ground, the captain tried to relax. He left the bridge to be alone with his thoughts, but changed his mind, and considered grabbing Swain. His excitement might help to persuade the admiral. He stopped in a corridor next to a comm. panel.
