_The Last Merge_ Disco part 4

"Good. Last thing we'd need is another aerial attack . . . " Xen followed Wsca's gaze, zoomed in his vision. "Oh, that a plane . . . or one of your antigravity aircars with a bit of wing . . .

"Q, wake up. We've got a problem."

"I'm not asleep . . . oh crap! Did they detect the gates? Ha! I'll bet they think their own people have found them. What shall we do to them?"

"Not really. But I suppose I shouldn't be too nasty."

"Damn, damn, damn, damn, DAMN! They pulled away." Q thumped down on the ground. "Damn it. I'll bet I've aimed it right at that Primitive World."

Xen sat and hugged her. "We'll start evaccing the people immediately." He pulled out his comm and pushed Director Ajki's number.

Damn, I wish I had better news, but that encounter ought to have changed Helios' path. We just need quick confirmation of that, so we evac the right world.
