Example text

Der Transitionsschock war ungewöhnlich scharf. Kaum, dass sich meine Sinne geklärt hatten, wurden auch schon mehrere Warnhinweise vor mir eingeblendet. Ich achtete nicht darauf, sondern führte eine systemweite Ortung durch. Die Sensoren erfassten gerade noch die Strukturerschütterung mehrerer Schiffe, die das System im selben Moment verließen. Als dann die ersten Bilder der Kolonie – oder von dem, was von ihr geblieben war – vor meinen Augen entstanden, starrte ich sie fassungslos an. Eine gefühlte Ewigkeit konnte ich nicht einmal blinzeln.

Du solltest die Kolonie nicht zu lange allein lassen. Ich zögerte. Schaute zum westlichen Horizont, an dem die Sonne gerade unterging und die weißen Trichterbauten der Stadt in blutrotes Licht tauchte. Die ausgebreiteten Schwingen des Kranichs, jenes eindrucksvollen architektonischen Kunstwerks mit seinen unzähligen Plattformen, versanken bereits in den Schatten. Ich hätte Crysalgira mein Leben anvertraut. Ich wusste, exzentrisch oder nicht, sie würde mir eine solche Botschaft nicht schicken, wenn es ihr nicht ernst wäre.

Also doch ein Programmfehler? Ihin da Achran hatte die Hand des Regenten über den Erfolg informiert, doch außer einer Empfangsbestätigung keine Rückmeldung erhalten. Sie näherten sich der LINH-KHAISIL. Das Kasinoschiff war neben der VEOLD'OR und zwei Versorgungsschiffen das größte zivile Schiff des Trosses, und es bot die geeignetste Ausstattung für das, was dem Hohen Lotsen vorschwebte. Zwar hätte man die Zeremonie auch auf Hamtar-18 durchführen können, doch Ihin da Achran wollte nicht völlig die Kontrolle darüber verlieren, wer den Tross des Regenten betrat und verließ.
