|The Triskelion planetary system.|
On Numenes, Glinnes visits the University of Lavaido and spends time with the chair of the Department of Cryptesthesiology, Dr. Sedre Lamre. The replicoid of Isaac Asimov has taken over the body of Dr. Lamre.
Dr. Lamre explains to Glinnes the unusual geography of Yrinna and the fact that many planets of Alastor Cluster show evidence of geological engineering. They discuss Marune and Numenes as two examples of worlds with artificially shaped planetary crusts. Again, Glinnes is skeptical about the possibility of planetary engineering, but Sedre enigmatically suggests that he will have a chance to observe a classic example of planetary engineering while traveling to Yrinna.
At Triskelion, Glinnes and Duissane are joined by the replicoid of Vance who has been investigating the Chezy Corporation and the source of its hierion synthesis technology.
The replicoids of Clarke, Vance and Asimov do not know which residents of Yrinna have dealings with space pirates, but they suggest to Glinnes the possibility that the sponsor of the Nilshira hussade club is the retired starmenter, Slabar Velche.
