Una vecchia conoscenza di Galen aiuta un gruppo di coloni terrestri a difendere il proprio pianeta dalle mire della Forza Terrestre, che vuole impiantare una miniera per estrarre un minerale utile a curare il morbo dei Drakh.
Gideon: That's the third time, in and out! That hoop is defective, man! Cheap, lousy, piece of...
Matheson: I believe you were saying something about "calming the spirit"?
Gideon: Complaining about the court is part of the game.
Galen: Well, I'll go and get ready to meet them, then.

Gideon: They report seeing a dragon...
Gideon: A dragon... big as a skyscraper.

Alwyn: Yes, I suppose you're right.
