The convex panel in question was practically the full height of the building. Flem placed a hand on it, and the metal slowly sank into the ground, revealing stairs. It turned out the buildings were just rooves with access to a lower level. Becker raised an eyebrow.

"What happened?" she demanded.

"Vibratory energy is required to open the door, " Flem answered.

"Vibra-who?" Imes snipped.

"Biorhythms, " the alien said.

"Are we going in or what?" Becker snapped.

"Would you guys keep your cool?" O'Hara admonished. "Don't do anything stupid until we get there."

"Heh, heard that, " Marty snickered. "Wait for us to get stupid."

The aliens turned to one another before scrutinizing the Humans. Nothing more was said for a moment, but Becker was dancing on her toes, waiting to explore. Swain was no more composed than she, rubbing his hands together. Day smiled at him.

"I'm going in, " Franklin announced. "Everything out here looks fine anyway, so hurry it along."

It was covered in pictures and symbols.

"Franklin, " she asked.

He and the others gathered around. "This is Sumerian, " Franklin exclaimed.

"Hand it over, please, " Nandesrikahl said. "No…not Sumerian…."

Adams gave Franklin a playful smack on the shoulder. His friend shrugged. Everyone else was staring at Nandy, who was completely consumed by the object. O'Hara asked him what he had.
