PR2601: Galaxy in Turmoil
Through theses effects the semi-intelligent Ramoz passes into a coma. In addition to his fur changing colour. barely discernible elastic sleeves form on the hind legs. They turn green and begin to form branches and growths that spread gradually over the whole body.
According to the emergency protocols of the LFT Perry Rhodan flies with the MIKRU-JON to the nearest star of sol-type, since these are intended as a meeting point for fleeing ships. The star nearest to the said type is rocked by numerous UHF eruptions, leading to health problems in the direct sunlight. Therefore, the star named by Gucky as Morpheus in reference to the ancient Greek god because he can perceive no mental activity. In the system, a badly damaged BASIS tender is discovered, which is identified as the CHISHOLM, whose crew are mostly unconscious from the effects of the UHF eruptions.
The MIKRU-JON manages to recover the CHISHOLM out of the danger zone and the two together fly along to one of the twelve planets of the system, in spite of a warning message being automatically broadcast. At the suggestion of Nemo Partijan, this is christened Orontes, based on the ancient name of the river Nahr al-Asi, "recalcitrant River," which rises in the Lebanon. The air of the planet is basically breathable, but polluted with smoke and ash due to a large number of volcanoes. Ssuch a very high temperature prveails. Even in the month-long polar night, minimum temperatures are above 50 degrees Celsius. In addition, on all points on the surface are countless ruined cities and spaceports that have been well abandoned for millennia. Nevertheless a base for repair of the CHISHOLM and further possible spaceships should be set up on this planet.
On the surface, it remains silent at first. Shortly afterwards, however, shows that there is a great danger lurking in the underground of Orontes. Countless robots rise out of the earth and attack the Terrans. However, thanks to the help of Gucky and Heatha Nero Verde, a TLD undercover agent under internship, he manages to repel the attack. After the defense the assault they decide to explore the subsurface, with Gucky taking the lead.
