animals stirred in the early morning air as the sun's glow was slowly growing
stronger and stronger. The coals in the fire were almost dust as Megan awoke
Enad. "I have made the final perparations for the flight. All's green, so
whenever you're awake..." It didn't take Enad long to get up. The
excitement was flowing within veins in the form of adrenalin.
a good morning to you. How long have you been up?" Enad asked slightly
upset at not having been awoken earlier.
enough to prepare all that needs it. Breakfast is inside the
Cantible." With that each ate heartily. It would take a little
patience and time before the use of ultralight speeds could be attained safely
out of the solar system.
roaring to life of the Cantible was a sight to behold. A charge-like
static could be felt near the surroundings of the ship as the shields were
powered up for protection from the atmospheric friction. The majestic little
ship rose gently like an air bubble in syrup. Then, within seconds, the power
of the vehicle was displayed with orbit occuring almost instantaneously.
Inside, during the travel, there was little to do. Enad had found the
antigravity accelerator which accomodates for the abrupt G-forces from
acceleration. Also, it was the ship's source of internal gravity. Enad
exercised with the strength set to twice that of gravity. When he wore out, he
simply went weightless. A lot of good it did him.
they were passing Jupiter, an instrument Megan had stored on the ship from the
Timecave came alive. "What in the world is that," both iterated
together. They grabbed the flashing instrument which was alien to both of
them. "It seems to be some type of signal reciever." Enad examined
some of the gauges more carefully and read the indicator dials. He carefully
fed the information into the computer system of the ship. The response from
the computer was interesting. It seemed the source of the transmission was
originating from the farthest moon from Saturn. Phoebe, which is about eight
million miles from Saturn, held questions to be answered. "Head for
Phoebe," was the only thing Enad said.
ship was carefully landed next to the source of the transmission. It was
another ship which was nearly totalled from a wreck. "Enad," Megan
cried. "The moon seems to have a hollow interior and besides that, an
energy flow can be detected down there."
do no one any good," Enad said flatly. "I intend to get answers, are
you coming with me?"
isn't that I don't want to, but shouldn't I keep gaurd with a full sensor
scan?" Enad knew she knew what she was doing, so he left alone. Within
the safety of his suit, he exited to examine the wreckage.
wreckage was a total wreck. It appeared to have been a small fighter ship. The
only thing truely recognizable was a twenty dollar gold piece lying on the
ground. It was his father's good luck piece. As he picked it up, he noticed
the ground around him was regular in shape. It seemed to be a massive door
into the ground. Within minutes Enad was roaming the halls of a very complex
battle station. There was artillery in every conceivable location. The first
place Enad went was where his answers could be found.
room was a large computer room with a console in the far end. Enad walked over
and pushed a few buttons and fully opened up the system. For several hours
Enad searched through the data banks of the computer searching for solutions.
"There it is," Enad said very loudly, as he discovered the true
operator of this station and his intentions. It seemed that Bronson was
controlling the station from his paradise on Earth. He was after Iffley and a
little extra. The weapons were for an attack on Titan. "He is a greedy
person," Enad thought. He sat and thought a little more. "I just
might get something out of this after all." Enad reached for the
communication switches and opened up a direct line to his uncle.
Unc. Long time no see." Bronson was quite dumbfounded as usual. After a
little discussion on what Enad had uncovered, he made his proposition.
"Would you like to give me the Belt, or would you like me to give over to
Iffley the knowledge of the place and its purpose?" Enad smirked as panic
covered Bronson's face. The face on the monitor was quite amusing.
With those words, not quite sure what to do, Bronson hit a few buttons on his
own console which began the attack on Titan.
stood there a second, surveying matters. Opening up all channels on
communications, he alerted all. "WARNING. THERE ARE MISSLES HEADING FOR
TITAN. ALL IN THE AREA BEWARE." After a moment of thinking he added,
"REPEAT, T. G. TAFT IS TAKING AGGRESSIVE ACTION ON TITAN. TAKE IMMEDIATE
ACTION. "He returned to Bronson's frequency. "Your time as well as
mine is limited. I want the Belt, or others will discover the true perpetrator
of this crime." Enad then shut down the unit and returned to his ship
with a smile on his face, and a little pride in his heart.
