Example text

Er hatte mit allem Möglichen gerechnet. Einem arkonidischen Roboter, der nach zehntausend Jahren noch immer funktionierte. Einem Fragment der Positronik, das sich in ein autonomes Rechensystem zurückgezogen hatte. Vielleicht sogar einen Arkoniden selbst im Kryoschlaf. Aber das hier ... dieses ... Wesen übertraf seine kühnsten Vorstellungen. Und dass die Kugel am Leben war, daran hatte Timothy keinen Zweifel. Er glaubte ihre lebendige Aura zu spüren – wenn auch nur sehr schwach. «, fragte er fasziniert.

Hinter sich hörte er Tiff und Mildred lauter werden. Die Frage ihres weiteren Vorgehens schien die Gemüter der beiden zu erhitzen. Durch die Helme hindurch und die methangeschwängerte Atmosphäre der Zentrale konnte er allerdings nichts verstehen. Timothy ließ sie streiten. Stattdessen richtete er sein Augenmerk auf das Nebenschott. Ihm fiel auf, dass es einen Spaltbreit geöffnet war. Es reichte gerade, um einen schlanken Mann im Raumanzug hindurchschlüpfen zu lassen. Eine Stimme in seinem Hinterkopf warnte ihn, dass er nicht allein auf Entdeckungstour gehen sollte.

Schwebend drehte sich das Kleinraumschiff um die eigene Achse, bis der Bug wieder zur Hangaröffnung zeigte, und setzte dann butterweich auf. Vor ihnen senkte sich das Schott bereits wieder. Der Energieschirm flackerte bedenklich. Es reichte nicht ganz. Das Schott war noch etwa zwanzig Zenti- meter vom Boden entfernt, als das rötliche Glühen ausfiel. Ein druckvoller Strahl eisigen Seewassers schoss rauschend durch den Spalt und überflutete den Hangarboden. Doch im nächsten Moment war die Lücke geschlossen, als das tonnenschwere Schott dröhnend den Hangarboden berührte.
