“I have to see a thing a thousand times before I see it once.”
Central Atlantic, near Bermuda
September 2, 2178
The small roam of Ponkti approached the city of Keenomsh’pont from the south, across the crumpled badlands of the Bermuda Platform, having come a very long way, days in transit, all the way from Ponkel’te in the far seas. The Humans called it the South China Sea. There were ten in all. One of them was an aging Tulcheah, now Metah of the Ponkti on Earth/Urku. She was accompanied by the half-breed Skeleemah and by others.
They had come to Keenomsh’pont to meet with the old academician Likteek of the Omtorish Academy. And with the eekoti Chase, a desire communicated by long-range repeater from many beats away.
