Since they were essentially wearing their recording equipment in the form of the portacams, all they had to do was walk around and steal with their eyes, so to speak. This they did, loitering round the park – taking in the sights, and in more ways than one.

As they strolled past the main entrance, they noticed a squad of twenty men drilling smartly to the great iron gates of the Palace, marching to a snare drum being played softly by another who marched a few paces behind. They wore black uniforms with red stripes and badges, carried shiny black rifles with shiny brass bits, and they seemed to be pretty – well, uniform in appearance – but… He noticed Blachart watching him intently.

He'd been driven around at a very docile pace, at what passed for a civilized speed limit on most colonies – by a seven foot tall maniac who wore braces and a head band, and giggled every time he saw a stop sign. The fact that he'd stopped every time hadn't helped to make him feel any better.
