He placed it over his head, but it didn't activate. Sitting there, breathing slowly with his eyes closed, he relaxed, delving into the mechanics. Seconds later, he sifted through components, which brought to mind a foreign language, but one piece at a time, he started making connections, analogies.

"I see it…this helmet can only be used by a pilot whose brain is operating on a specific frequency, something similar to entering theta levels when going to sleep, " he muttered.

There was no way for him to achieve the phenomenon, but he gleaned enough information to construct new headgear. After removing the helmet and sliding out of the seat, he marched back to the airlock, and finally exited the craft.

A full belly and a slow ride back to the hangar were enough to reignite the fire under his ass. Orange light washed over his face. Fresh air whipped by his ears. Stopping outside the lab, he sauntered from the cart to the door, swiped, entered, made for the comms., and called out.

"Attention! All scientists, report."

Swain gave the men a breakdown regarding how the traveler's helm functioned. They went to work on a new design. By the end of the day, they created a 3-D rendition on computers.

"Mister Swain, " Frep called.

"There's a lack of Swainium alloy. What would you like to do?"

"Oh…man, oh, man."

He puzzled over the predicament, but a Thewl proposed scrapping nonessentials from the Explorer, which brought them to the next phase, creating a program to pilot the helm. Such a feat resulted

ting code, and toying around with some weapons. Since there was little for Swain to do outside of supervising, he had visited his old friends on the Explorer, where he handled a brand new photon rifle, one he had visualized for the captain. It was bulky, but light, had four, revolving barrels, each containing a lens, which allowed for an endless stream of photon blasts; it was a photon, machine gun.

He, DeReaux, Fitzpatrick, and O'Hara ran off into the woods to test it out. All manners of chirps, whistles, and rustling warbled through the trees. The captain tried out his new toy, searing right through trunks, and unfortunately, setting them ablaze. Swain suggested firing at boulders instead.

They had a riot. No one spoke two words about the Lokians; their upcoming fight seemed a thing of science fiction, and the odds were stacked against them. Rather than being mired in negativity, they enjoyed their time together, shooting through stone, chasing after scaly birds, watching lizards with shells climb golden trees; it was magnificent.
