Once again Cliff is talking to General Wamsler about his disciplinary transfer
about to continue another half year.
Just then the TRAV (Terrestrial
Space Reconnaissance Units) are receiving a distress call from the GSD cruiser
Tau by Commander Lindley.
They have gotten into a heavy light storm.
Aboard among them are the Chief of the Galactic Security Division, Colonel
Villa and his staff.
Their power cut, Lindley wants to get from board as quickly as possible to
fight their way through the planet Gordon.
Colonel Villa doesn't believe the
Tau has gotten into a normal light storm but talks in his last radio message
