There were times when Krant was forced to face the harsh reality of the situation he'd got himself into, and this was very much one of them! This organization was more than a little college group or society, gathering in beer halls to drink and party and debate politics, or philosophize over the wisdom and practice of eugenics, and to plot revolutions together. In practice it was a very different animal he had climbed and mounted – it played for keeps, and it had always said it would! If he weren't careful, it would turn around and bite him, or throw him off and trample him!

A bead of sweat trickled down his face, as from below, he heard a volley of muffled shots ring out.

Meanwhile, in Deanna orbit, things on the three D.R.A. warships – which had for several hours drifted close together and occasionally collided with each other, had just about played themselves out. The crews of the three ships had more or less survived the ordeal of being passionately near-mauled by their uninvited guests, and had begun to recover.

On Angel One, the first victim of the Celeste's cunning strategy, Brandon Carver had proved himself very useful indeed – especially to Brandon Carver.

Tracey was fast asleep. Without waking her, she tumbled out of bed and hastily dragged on the previous day's clothes again before groggily stomping barefoot down the wooden stairs, making for the front door. Thinking twice about it, she turned sharply and headed over to the fireplace in the lounge to grab the blaster on the mantelpiece, before heading for the door again.

A blast of airbrakes outside told her it was a big vehicle. By the time she reached the door and peered through the curtain over the small window in the top, the big vehicle had already slowed, pulled up and stopped outside. It looked like a – bus?
