962 - Wächter der goldenen Stadt
The Watcher of the Gold City
H.G. Ewers

A group of a hundred Orbiters capture Anson Argyris and Olkyra. They call themselves Goldens and they are clones which failed during the process and are therefore rebelling against the real Orbiters. They release Olkyra, whom they have identified as one of them, but keep Argyris under a close watch.

The Vario 500 manages to escape and after threatening to destroy the Device, concludes a truce with the Goldens. Then the Vario escapes and ends up in a maze deep inside the Golden City. He meets with the guardian of the maze, that he defeats with Olkyra's help, who dies during the fight.
