868 - Aufbruch der BASIS
The Departure of the Base
Kurt Mahr


In April 3586, the Base leaves the Earth under the command of Payne Hamiller and Jentho Kanthall. Roi Danton, who has fallen in love with Demeter / Dunjia Varenczy, is also on board. One night, Hamiller overhears Demeter speaking in her sleep and mentioning that she has to look for an Eye, a quest that will eventually lead her in a city called Henoch. As the Base is leaving, Kershyll Vanne receives an alarming message from It saying "I tried to help but I failed. I came too close, and now I am falling into this extinct...".

In Drakrioch, Rhodan receives the same message from It and the Sol soon departs for Tschuschik.

On the Base, an entity named Dargist starts attacking the crew. It's a defense mechanism installed during the former Aphilian program that received the orders to destroy any non-Aphilian being. Augustus, the K2 robot, makes contact with Dargist and pretends the crew is under its command. The attacks stop.

878 - Impulse aus dem Nichts
Impulse into the Void
Ernst Vlcek


The Ruin People, who call themselves the Loowians, is expecting an impulse from an unknown region of space. This impulse is emitted every 226,000 years but for the first time in their history, it is late. The Loowians are under the influence of a protoplasmic creature called the Duade and when they finally receive the impulse, they realize it has been altered. Two Loowians decide to investigate. Using the Helk, their flagship, they head toward the place where the impulse came from.

In Imperium Alpha, Tifflor receives the visit of Vargas Denner, a man who wants to create a special force destined to control the ongoing immigration destined to repopulate the Earth. Tifflor refuses and Denner, who is a para-slave of Boyt Margor, has to report his failure. Margor has been feeling increasingly sick lately because of strong psionic radiations. His mutant skill is forcing an accumulation of these radiations in his brain, and the only way he can survive is by off-loading the excess radiation into a seventeen-year old retarded girl called Niki, who thrives on psionic energy.

Howatzer, Vapido and Gedan find Margor and manage to get Niki's trust. They find out that the impulses that are disturbing Margor are coming from the pyramid of Gizeh, in Egypt. They try to convince Margor that he might turn into a psionic bomb and that he should leave the Earth, but Margor refuses and threatens to kill them. The three mutants are forced to flee.

879 - Sturm auf Terra
Storm on Terra
Ernst Vlcek


The Two Loowians arrive in the Solar System and determine that the impulses are coming from the Earth. They hide the Helk near a Neptune moon but they don't realize that their spaceship has been noticed by the Terrans. The Loowians determine that the source of impulses is not an object but a human.

Margor sends Niki to the three mutants because he is realizing that the girl can become a threat for him on the long run. Suddenly, they are dematerialized and reappear in the Helk. They make contact with the Loowians and explain to them the history of the Earth. The Loowians now understand why the impulse didn't arrive in time: the Earth was in the Maelstrom of Stars when it was emitted. The Loowians bring Margor on board and the mutant reinforces the impulses, which reach Alkyra II.

On the Helk, Niki shows amazing skills of understanding the foreign technology. The Loowians send several spaceships toward the Earth in order to retrieve the artifact but they are destroyed by Terran defenses, assisted by Niki. Boyt Margor kills the two Loowians and then escapes.

On Alkyra II, there is great consternation as the Loowians realize that their flagship is lost. The item they are trying to retrieve is the key for them to enter the Matter Sources. They decide that the only way for them to retrieve the artifact is to send a whole out attack on the Earth.

881 - Erbe des Tba
The Legacy of the Tba
H.G. Ewers


A group of Metamorphs led by Gerziell discover Uufthan-Pynk, the home galaxy of the Gys-Voolberahs. The main world, Gys-Progher, is totally abandoned and the only Gys-Voolberahs left have abandoned their corporal bodies. They give Gerziell a spaceship called the Sword of God and give him the coordinates of a galaxy where he is expected to restart the Tba. In August 3586, Gerziell reaches the rendezvous point which happens to be in the Magellan Clouds. Since nobody is there yet, Gerziell flies to the Milky Way and take possession of the Terran station Sharon Gold and the spaceship Bernard Lovell, which allows them to get vital information on the humanity.

On the Earth, two Metamorphs, Ytter and Nchr, are working in Imperium Alpha under the appearance of two Terrans. When they learn about the arrival in the Milky Way of a spaceship of their compatriots, they understand their intents and decide to block their efforts in an attempt to install a durable peace between Terrans and Metamorphs.

After kidnapping an Oxtornian, Gerziell realizes that Anson Argyris might be the key for the Gys Voolberahs to infiltrate the Terran government. Ytter and Nchr disclose their identity to Tifflor and offer to help as negociators between the two races.

882 - Brennpunkt Milchstraße
Focus Point: Milky Way
H.G. Ewers


Ytter and Nchr make contact with Gerziell while his compatriots are hiding with the Sword of God in another continuum. Another spaceship with Hotrenor-Taak, who's also been sent by Tifflor, arrives at the meeting and Gerziell attack them right away. Ytter and Nchr cast the three spaceships in the other continuum where Gerziell is finally forced to negociate.

On the Sword of God, the Oxtornian that the Metamorphs kidnapped, escapes and ends up in the engine of the spaceship and tampers with it, causing the whole device to disappear in a temporal gap.

The three spaceships reach a system made of eight planets and are soon attracted to a planet called Mandaba. The Metamorphs fall under the influence of the First Electronic Civilization while Ytter, Nchr and the 116 Gys-Voolberahs of the Sword of God enter Tlagalah, the Eternal City. Gerziell learns about the history of his people.

In a distant past, a small group of scientits engineered a new race capable of changing form at will. They named them Gys-Voolberah, the Invicibles, and gave them the ability to emit a subatomic gas that allowed them to absorb their victims' knowledge. However, the Gys-Voolberah turned out to be flawed genetically and the scientists tried to stop them from reproducing. They installed a psycho-barrier in their minds that makes them forget about their original shape. The flaw was fixed later, creating a split in the Gys-Voolberah civilization. The new generation left their original world, Uuft-Pynkh, and set on recreating the Tba.

The Sword of God finally returns to the normal continuum and, led by Geziell, who has known regained his original form, they realize that their attempts at recreating the Tba was misguided. Tifflor accepts to give them the planet Targriffe, where they settle. A few weeks later, Hotrenor-Taak visits the new colony and observes that all the Metamorphs settled on the planet have now regained their original form, which is similar to a human-sized red crystal.

884 - Raumschiff des Mächtigen
The Spaceship of the Mighty
William Voltz


Still prisoners, Demeter, Plondfair and Hytawath Borl receive a mission from the Lard: they must cross the Pale Frontier and investigate what happened on the other side, called the Lost Paradise. Since their only alternative is to stay prisoners, they accept. The area beyond the Pale Frontier appears to be an intermediary area between the normal continuum and hyperspace. There, they meet Arquath, a mutilated Wyngian who was once sent by the Lard to deliver a message to the inhabitants of this area, called the Anskians. Arquath receives orders from the master of the Lost Paradise, a creature called Modo.

Modo explains that he is in charge of making sure that nobody crosses the Lost Paradise to reach the next section, but he agrees not to kill his prisoners. Instead, they will be turned over to the Malgonians, a race of people that Modo has enslaved.

Ganerc-Callibso arrives in Tschuschik and realizes that the Pan-Thau-Ra is not at the coordinates that Bardioc gave him. Using a beacon, the Timeless locates the spore ship in the Torgnisch system. Puzzled that the impulses emitted by the Pan-Thau-Ra are much weaker than they should be, Ganerc-Callibso realizes that Bardioc hid his spore ship in the hyperspace. However, something must have happened because one-thirteenth of the ship is now in the normal continuum, allowing the inhabitants of this system to be able to spot it from a specific place and at certain times.

The Timeless enters the Pan-Thau-Ra and realizes that something went horribly wrong: someone freed the spores, called biophores, which have now gone haywire inside the spaceship. The biophores are made of two types: the Quanta-On, which are in charge of creating living organic matter, and the Quanta-Noon, which are used to create intelligence.

Ganerc-Callibso is puzzled and wonders who could have freed the spores. But most of all, he is afraid that once the power beyond the Matter Source where the Pan-Thau-Ra was loaded learns what happened, they will retaliate against the galaxies that have been involved in this operation, including the Milky Way.

As he progresses through the Pan-Thau-Ra, which is more than a hundred kilometers long, Ganerc-Callibso is captured and taken into a cell where he meets Plondfair, Demeter and Hytawath Borl, who got there by escaping through a passageway before the Malgonians could catch them.

885 - Kampf in der PAN-THAU-RA
Fight on the Pan-Thau-Ra
William Voltz


Arquath frees Demeter, Plondfair, Ganerc-Callibso and Hytawath Borl, letting them know that the Anskians have ordered an attack on Quostoht. They all head toward a hangar in the Pan-Thau-Ra where they find a spaceship and take off to let Rhodan know about the events, why Ganerc-Callibso leaves with his own ship to meet them on the Base.

All these events on the Pan-Thau-Ra have been followed closely by a creature called Zorg the Orbiter. Zorg's history started in a distant past.

Zorg was living peacefully on the planet Buran among his compatriots, the Voghians. One day, a spaceship appeared and kidnapped him. On the mysterious spaceship, called the Zyffo, he was greeted by an android called Donnermann who told him he had been chosen to assist Igsorian of Veylt in his task. Igsorian of Veylt is a Knight of the Abyss, an order charged to maintain the order in the universe, but Zorg cannot get any more answers from the android.

Zorg goes through a training but unforeseen events separate him from the Zyffo and he ends up by himself on his own spaceship, the Pye, which has the ability to change form based on Zorg's will. During his quest to find Igsorian of Veylt, Zorg arrives in the Torgnisch system where he soon detects the anomaly caused by the Pan-Thau-Ra being split between hyperspace and the normal continuum. The Pye is soon captured by the Pan-Thau-Ra and Zolt is taken aboard where he's been a prisoner since then.

Demeter and the rest of the crew arrive on the Base where Ganerc-Callibso has preceded them. Rhodan learns the position of the Pan-Thau-Ra.

After some initial difficulties with robots that seem to be the only intelligence on the planet, the commando is acknowledged as Suskohnians except for Plondfair. The Terrans think it might come from the fact that he doesn't carry a cell activator.

After having to identify themselves again, the Terrans eventually uncover a spaceship called the Daeron.

890 - Auge zum Hyperraum
The Eye of Hyperspace
Ernst Vlcek


With Niki's help, Boyt manages to open the mysterious receptacle. Inside, he finds a crystal shaped as an eye. Taking a look inside, Boyt gets the vision of a huge structure that is partially invisible. After some practice, he is able to use the Eye to create a hyperspace bubble where he can hide.

On Alkyra II, Panka-Srin, the Master of the Source, has managed to locate the Matter Source that the Eye opens. The Source has nine access points, which explains the reason why the Loowian civilization is based on this number. The Loowians are now gathering forces to attack the Earth, but they are diverted by an attack from the Dyade, which has now realized that it is a slave, and not a master as it used to believe, of the Loowians.

The Loowians negociate with the Dyade, which accepts to be taken on one of their ships in order to take part in the trip to the Earth. The Loowians receive an impulse telling them that the Eye has been opened for the second time.

The Dyade manages to break free of its concealed prison and takes the Loowian crew under its command. However, a Loowian manages to severe the prison from the ships, destroying the protoplasmic entity.

The Loowians settle in the Solar System and start building a structure on Mars made of nine buildings, surrounded by an increasingly hostile Terran crowd.

Perry Rhodan and the other Terrans, still posing as Suskohnians, are sent by the Asogens inside the Pale Border. Their mission is to bring an activating device inside the headquarters of the Pan-Thau-Ra. Alaska gets lost and sees a creature that he initially thinks is Douc Langur. When he realizes his error, he suddenly understands the origin of the researcher: in a distant past, the Empress of Therm must have come across a spore ship, and she used the spores to create her researchers. Alaska now understands why even though Langur eventually found his origin, he decided to keep it secret. Alaska's Cappin fragment starts reacting to the stay in hyperspace and under massive pain, Alaska accepts Augustus' help.

The Orbiter Zorg remembers his story.

On board of his spaceship, the Zyffo, Zorg faithfully follows his master, the Knight of the Abyss Igsorian of Veylt, into an area of space called Kinischau. Igsorian explains to Zorg that the Bilkottians have seized the scientific knowledge of another people, the Dohuuns, and they are now using this knowledge to wreak havoc on the other peoples. The Bilkottians attack Igsorian with gigantic organisms looking like energetic jellies. Taken by surprise, Veylt is forced to escape by turning his spaceship into a micro black hole. Zorg manages to escape and receives a last message from his master asking him to try to find him. Then Zorg realizes that he is now alone.

Zorg meets Rhodan and tells him his story. He decides to follow the Terrans because they are his only chance to pursue his quest after Igsorian of Veylt. He tells the Terrans about a legend that says that when the last Knight of the Abyss disappears, the stars will die.

The Anskians, led by their commander called Korter Bell, follow the progression of the Suskohnians without really feeling they represent a threat. Bell is confident that they can be stopped before they reach the headquarters. Recently, Bell has received vague telepathic messages coming from someone called Bruilldana who claims to be the queen of the Anskians.
