A„ndrAu Frogmorton is an Earth Mage on long range reconnaissance when he lands a bit too close to a black hole. Angel his sentient ship computer dives into the gravity well in an attempt to slingshot back out and transits to an alternative universe, they arrive in an area adjacent to a deep space trade route which obviously goes somewhere. They set up a forward base on a convenient asteroid and monitor the trade rote. One day while monitoring they observe a vessel acting suspiciously, and eventually identify that it has attacked a vessel as it enters space on the trade route, they assume that this is not appropriate conduct and go to the assistance of the vessel. After taking out the attacker they identify six survivors in the aft compartment, they haul the hulk clear of the vessel and transfer the survivor to provide them with medical aid. Whilst they are providing the aid A„ndrAu is able to thought read them to acquire information on their system and its language; which allows Angel to become reasonably conversant with the structure of the language. They also discover that the survivors were captives held hostage on the vessel to ensure it had not been sabotaged. A„ndrAu recruits them as base staff and angel contacts the vessel which turns out to be a tube runner carrying passengers in transit from the Faal system to the Clondone system. They inform the captain that they are about to tow the hulk back to their base and will return later to see if he needs further assistance. Once they have and installed their new staff the Faal agree to see if they can do provisional repairs on the vessel and improve the base whilst A„ndrAu returns to assist the tube runner. When A„ndrAu arrives back he identifies that they need a tow back to their port of origin in Faal system which A„ndrAu agrees to provide. When he finally enters Terminus space (the Faal port of origin) he is intercepted by Geet- tem-fin a Faal Mage on patrol guarding the entry point. Angel rapidly establishes contact with Geet-tema€™s inboard sentient and establishes that it is also female personality as is its Bio; Angel and Faal-doe hit it of big time, and patch Geet-tem through to A„ndrAu; once it has been established that they are both Mages they agree to mind link and A„ndrAu explains the situation to Geet-tem who promptly arranges backup and clears him to tow the Runner in. Once they have reached their rendezvous with the Med ship the Taan (medics) request access to the re.gen to treat persons injured in the attack, A„ndrAu accompanied by Geet-tem tow the runner to parking orbit at Terminus Space Port where personal can be evacuated. On the way in they are met by the Ccin pop news vid crews and A„ndrAu claims that he is an Earth system salvage operator, the Ccin are suspicious about this but they get away with it. Once the passengers are disembarked A„ndrAu and Geet-tem go down to Space Port by Boat leaving Faal a€“doe and Angel in orbit. A„ndrAu clears things with Admiral Bel-tam-den the Bel Fleet commander Terminus, and they stay at the Mage centre overnight. The Following day Geet-tem takes A„ndrAu to Prime centre to meet the High Mage and Geet-tem is detailed off to brief A„ndrAu on Faal System while the High Mage clears things with Faal Prime Council They clear an office and lecture room with the duty Aal (administrator) and then to go through basic readers. By the time they have achieved this it is the end of working day and they retire to their rooms to prepare for evening meal. When it is time Geet-tem collects A„ndrAu and they head for the duty bar to join the other Mages at base for evening social and introduce A„ndrAu to them when they arrive at the Bar they greet the other mages and Geet-tem orders her usual Fizz-bomb which is her usual drink A„ndrAu follows suit without realising that Fizz-bombs are lethal which results in him becoming slightly tipsy before anybody realizes that he is not acquainted with Faal social liquids, to the consternation of Geet-tem, and he is tAan-dre felt extremely impressed by Dek-peas skill, and decided he would like to learn how to drive a ground car, he felt he could do better than Geet-tem. a€œHow do ... they flipped onto the in track, and Dek-pea resumed manual control to manoeuvre across the open space to the garage door. Dek-pea ... a€œAan-dre wants to learn to drive a ground cara€ Dek-pea promptly informed Dek-dom enthusiastically.
