Anyhoo, Falcon 2. The beginning of the book has much the same stuff as the beginning of the first, I've copied and pasted it here and then stuck the new stuff after that:

Mission Brief (there is a picture here)

As you walk into the recreation centre, under its glasteel dome at the top of the TIME Building, you hear the deep booming voice of Special Agent Bloodhound. You nod to some operatives from the monitoring section and, passing the empty dream booths, head towards the voice.

Unusually, all except one of the SAT team, the Special Agents of TIME, are off duty together. A celebration day has been given in honour of the success of your mission against the renegade Lord. The agents are involved in a historical simulation of diplomatic intrigue; occasionally one or other of them types on the micro-terminal you all carry in place of a watch, and they examine a hovering globe screen to see the results of each move. Bloodhound looks up and says, 'Here's glory hunter, on-line Falcon! Won any more medals since yesterday?'

Lynx smiles sardonically, 'Don't let the fact that Falcon won the Golden Wings straight out of the Academy ruffle your calm, Blood.'

'Oh well, at least I wasn't Yelov's golden girl,' he replies. Agidy Yelov trained Lynx himself and she is more deadly at unarmed combat than any of you, but she laughs at Bloodhound's jibe.

Agent Sparrowhawk says quietly, 'No-one has proven that Agidy was a traitor yet.' Like Yelov, she is a Siriun, and an electronics genius. Her feline features quiver momentarily as she turns on her heel and glides, cat-like, towards a dream booth.

'It's bad for morale, losing a boss like this,' says Lynx.

Sparrowhawk looks back and says, 'Don't you think it is worse for Agidy? They had to rebuild half of him, he's as much a droid as a man.'

The other agent at the table, Leopard, who himself is no more than a living brain in a robot body butts in, 'The advantage is all his, Sparrow,' but she is gone, locked in a dream booth.

You are about to greet your fellow agents at last when the globe screen flashes and your new section leader, Jobanque, seems to become flesh and blood before you. 'On-line, SAT Squad. Falcon, I need to see you right away. The rest I'll see straight afterwards. Where is Sparrowhawk?' You leave Lynx to explain as you run towards the pedway which will take you to your new leader.

The door to Jobanque's office slides open at your touch - the building's service computer recognises your handprint. Jobanque is standing before the holo-projector. He smiles and says, 'Well, I would apologise for asking you here on a Federation holiday but, in a way, it's your fault. I need you. I have a mission for you, Falcon. It may be every bit as perilous as your last.' You nod, then stare as a hologram of Yelov fills the room. The left side of his face is hidden by a silver mask and his left arm is that of a robot. Jobanque says gravely, 'When your blaster seared him he was damaged so badly that the medtechs had to use bionic parts to replace those you had destroyed. He is now half man, half robot. Now this thing (he is quite mad) has escaped from the Vault. Obviously, there can be no question that Yelov's claim that he was controlled by the Hivers is a lie.'

Jobanque's dark unmoving face stares at you. Until recently he had been Yelov's colleague, now you could almost believe he had hated him. 'There was a fault in the Psionic Damper which was grafted into his circuitry. He still has his formidable Powers of the Mind and he has used them to steal his old Time Machine He has sworn vengeance on all Earthers, and on you, Falcon, in particular. There is no telling what damage he will do, his lust for absolute power is as great as ever. Agent Chameleon, returning from a routine patrol with a readout from the Timehole Monitoring Beacons on the current Timeholes, has reported a disturbance in the timeline of Mechanon, an enormous factory planet run entirely by droids, programmed only to mine metals, build copies of themselves and construct the most deadly arsenal of interstellar weaponry the universe had ever seen, until a terrible nuclear catastrophe reduced the planet to a tangled ruin of rock and metal. If Yelov is responsible and if he should find a way of reversing this accident, the entire galaxy would be held to ransom. You are our best agent Falcon, you must stop him before it is too late.'

You leave Jobanque's office at a run, bound for your Time Machine, Falcon's Wing, at the Eiger Vault. The other agents step aside to let you pass. Sparrowhawk is not with them.

1 [score a Q]

The hovrail car which will take you to the Eiger Vault glides soundlessly to a halt. As you secure the bubble hatch and type in your destination you are already considering the possibilities. The steady acceleration of the car lasts for half of the journey and as you begin to slow it dawns on you that this will be a difficult mission. Yelov was a test pilot in the pioneering days of Time Travel; not only is he more experienced than anyone else, he also possesses the cat-like reflexes of the Siriuns. His skill in the Sim-Combat booths is legendary. Behind you the lights of Alpolis stretch for further than the eye can see even though the monorail arcs a thousand feet above the ground.

Less than an hour after leaving Jobanque's office you stand before the huge plasteel hangar doors of the Eiger Vault, set deep in the side of Mount Eiger. Your ID chip is checked and you are mind scanned before access to the vault is allowed by the service computer. As you pass the security droids, you reflect upon the folly of holding Yelov within this tight security net, instead of outside it. He is a million times more dangerous with a Time Machine at his disposal than if he were at large on Earth, 3033 AD. You cross the cavern which houses the Time Machines and the Research Section of TIME. The area in which the machines are kept is partitioned at intervals and you head straight for your own bay. In the centre of the bay, which is lined on three sides with racks carrying maintenance equip-ment, spare parts, the Variac Drive Recharger and sundry other useful items, lies Falcon's Wing, your Time Machine. You approach the access hatch and the Mind Scanner lights up red, then green. You are drawn up into the Time Machine by invisible Tractor Beams, activated by CAIN. Soon you are standing on the glowing Access Disc and CAIN chimes 'Welcome, Falcon.'

210
The hatch seals as you settle into your crash-couch and run routine system checks. The technicians have been over your machine with a microscope and Falcon's Wing is in perfect repair. You decide to ask CAIN for some information.

If you ask for details on planet Mechanon,
If you would like to ask for details of Yelov's escape,
If you would like to ask Jobanque whether he is using any other agents on this mission,

Man, that's some amateur level shit. They gave him augs that aided his escape, instead of just like, flesh grafts and non-motive prosthetics while telling him he's lucky to be alive?

Let's ask about the planet.

The console screen in front of you lights up as CAIN presents a short history of the planet Mechanon.
Time 03.14
File-Mech 01
MECHANON: Fourth planet orbiting Silurus Six
DIAMETER: 9,200 miles
ATMOSPHERE: Main constituents, Hydrogen, Oxygen, Argon, Helium and Xenon
GRAVITY: 1.356 Earth standard
COMPOSITION: Rich in mineral ores, metals and trace elements
SURFACE TEMPERATURE 43C-59C
LENGTH OF DAY: 31 hours Earth standard time

First landing by sentient species: 19067 BC
First colonists: The Danikoi

The Danikoi, a highly intelligent humanoid race, were the first known space travellers. Their civilisation crumbled millenia ago but a small group of Danikoi, realising that their race was doomed, decided to leave a lasting monument to their society.' They built robots which could build and program more robots made from the materials mined on the metal rich world of Mechanon. Mechanon became a single immense factory which lasted long beyond the last visit of a Danikoi spaceship. Unfortunately, the Danikoi had caused the original robots to be programmed to take whatever steps were necessary to ensure that Mechanon remained a lasting testament to the glory of Danikoi technology. The robots of Mechanon sought to assemble space weapons with which they could wipe out all intelligent life, throughout the universe, for there was no other way for them to ensure that Mechanon remained forever.

In 2291 AD, prior to the launch of the roboships, a nuclear disaster reduced the planet to a featureless mass of fused metal and rock. None of the wardroids of Mechanon remained functional.

END OF FILE MECH 01

CAIN chooses a visual display for the answer to your question, and the console screen flashes up the following:

Time Now 03.14
File YV29 [New Data]
SUBJECT: Yelov, Agidy - escape from custody
Security lapse in the Eiger Vault
NATURE: Malfunction of Psionic Damper fitted to bionic circuitry which replaced damaged brain tissue
RESULT: Yelov was able to exert his Power of Will to control a security guard who released him and killed three other guards to enable Yelov access to his Time Machine

DISAPPEARANCE: Yelov and his Time Machine winked out of the Eiger Vault Timehole at 01.13 Earth Standard Time
DESTINATION: Unknown

END OF FILE YV29

CAIN chimes, 'He left a message addressed to you, Falcon. He said that he would make sure that your death was a painful one.' you thank CAIN - and tell it not to speak unless spoken to!

195
CAIN chimes, 'I have received data on movements in three timeholes from the Monitoring Section.' The console screen flashes as CAIN presents a list of recent time trips.

Time now: 03.54
TIME DESTINATION TRAVELLER
21.40 Mechanon 2291 AD Yelov
23.17 Thrix 1776 AD Unknown
01.02 Mechanon 2291 AD Unknown
02.00 Thrix 1776 AD Unknown
02.51 Mechanon 2291 AD Unknown
02.59 Crecy 1346 AD Unknown
03.05 Mechanon 2291 AD Unknown
03.10 Eiger Vault, 3033 AD Agent Chameleon

You ask CAIN who the unknown traveller could be and it replies that all the other time machines and TIME personnel are accounted for and that you may safely assume the traveller is Yelov. You ask for information on Thrix and Crecy and CAIN tells you that Thrix is a planet rich in Polybdenum, the rare mineral which the Variac Drives and Molecular Converters of Time Machines use as fuel. It is inhabited by strange intelligent rock-like life forms. Crecy is in Earth's past at the time of a battle-between mediaeval knights in armour which was the first in the Hundred Years War. Yelov has not been idle. Will you:

Travel through time to Crecy?
Thrix?
Mechanon?
Ask for more information?

More info. Then, Crecy. It's the place they visited last, but it's furthest back, so they're setting up for the future.

More info, but go to Mechanon (where Yelov was last) because IIRC this series uses parallel time bullshit to avoid you going back to before the bad guys did their thing in a particular period.

What question will you ask CAIN?
Did Yelov's Time Machine carry a full supply of Polybdenum?
Does Mechanon have reserves of the Polybdenum which is needed for time travel Machines?
What could be done to change Earth's history at the battle of Crecy?
Could a change in the events of the battle of Crecy affect me?

Ask how the battle affects us. There's a whole organization looking after Earth and the Universe, but if Falcon doesn't look out for himself no one else is going to, so "us" is always going to be the priority.

CAIN is silent for some moments before chiming, There is a correspondence between the names of members of the English nobility who were present at the battle of Crecy and the earliest of your known ancestors, Falcon. Sir Thomas Chandos, whose coat of arms is a silver falcon on a blue background may have been a distant ancestor of yours. I assume you know that a coat of arms is the picture carried on a knight's shield and surcoat in a battle of those times? If Sir Thomas Chandos is murdered before his time, Falcon, you will never have existed.'

Thank you CAIN,' you reply, 'and CAIN, has it ever crossed your memory banks that even you don't know everything? I have the information I need now.'

'If I may be permitted to add something, sir?' There is an almost wheedling note to the chimes of CAIN's voice synthesiser, rather than the usual slightly haughty tone.

'Now what?' you ask.

'I can compute no sure reason for a visit to Crecy to change history. A disease called the Black Death, a plague which killed between a quarter and a half of the population of Europe followed two years later, in 1348 AD. Its effects may dampen any changes that may be caused in Earth's timeline at this point.'

'Set coordinates for Crecy, 26th August, 1346 AD, CAIN,' you order brusquely.

You instruct CAIN to turn on the Variac Drive to shift you into null-space and to re-engage the Drive as soon as you have finished inputting the navigational coordinates for the timehole at Crecy, France, 1346 AD. Your scalp tingles slightly as the Time Machine moves out of phase, and everything around you seems grey and insubstantial. You know that should you turn on the outside camera the screen would remain blank, not even blackness exists in null-space. You cast your thoughts into the void and using your Psychic Awareness locate the timehole at Crecy. When you have translated this location into coordinates for CAIN, the Variac Drive engages once more. The process of re-emerging in real time is immediate, but seems to take about an hour for you. You may spend this time in the Autodoc, if you wish, and gain up to 12 Endurance points.

6
Your camera scans the gently rolling countryside of mediaeval northern France. Falcon's Wing stands on a hill overlooking a gentle slope on which stands the English army. Descending the hills opposite is the French army which seems about five times as large. It is mid afternoon, but the vanguard of the French army are advancing to the attack, led by six thousand or so mercenary troops, crossbowmen from Genoa, followed by double that number of mounted knights in full plate armour, the flower of chivalry, their shields and banners a glorious riot of colour. Behind these, and still trooping to the battlefield, are countless peasant infantry, some armed with pikes, but many making do with scythes roped to poles. The English army numbers a little over ten thousand men, composed of knights who have dismounted and will fight on foot, brave Welsh spearmen and a large number of longbowmen.

You decide to station yourself amongst the ranks of the English who are divided into three. Nearest to you are the reserves, and CAIN identifies the golden lions and fleur de lis of their leader, King Edward. Before these is another body of knights led by the King's young son, the Black Prince, who is surrounded by veteran knights, one of whom, Sir Thomas Chandos, bears a silver falcon on his red shield. Away to the left lies the third body of knights, lead by William de Bohun, Earl of Northampton, whose blue shield carries three red stars and six golden lions. The men of Northampton and the Black Prince are linked by a line of archers. Where will you position yourself?

Near the King?
Near the Black Prince?
Near the Earl of Northampton?
Near Sir Thomas Chandos?

(Of course, anyone who lived that far back who has surviving descendants would be a relative of Falcon anyway)

Position ourself in front of our ancestor because Yelov is probably going to target him. He wants revenge on us, which is probably why he came here.

Agreed. CAIN confirmed that any effect caused on general history here will probably be minimal, so it's more likely that Yelov is here for individual grudges.

CAIN selects a simple coat of arms for you, a red chevron on a white background, and prepares a sword, shield and armour in the molecular convertor. You glide to the ground, looking for all the world like an English man-at-arms, and an atmosphere of tense expectancy hits you. As you step away from Falcon's Wing, around which the hologram of a group of trees is projected, battle is about to be joined. The Genoese crossbowmen are charging towards the Black Prince and his knights. You clank down the slope and take up a position in the rear rank, behind Sir Thomas Chandos, sword at the ready. The Genoese halt suddenly and let loose a volley of crossbow bolts - the thud of one hitting your shield with great force shocks you as you realise that you could die at any moment. A few of the English fall under the hail of flying steel, but the English longbowmen let loose a volley. The sky is blackened by a great mass of arrows and they fall upon the Genoese in a withering cloud. The Genoese mercenaries must rewind their crossbows before they can fire again, whereas the English archers, tall, deep-chested men, can fire an arrow with deadly precision every six or eight seconds. The Genoese veterans have never faced such a rain of death and they panic and flee within moments. The French knights are so incensed at this that they ride down their own men in their frenzied charge. All nobles, they treat the Genoese mercenary soldiers with contempt. The charging knights are about to attack your position. Will you:

Move back to the relative safety of the King's position?
Remain where you are?
Move closer to the Black Prince?

The withering volleys from the English longbowmen take their loll of the valiant French knights again and again. The French knights come on in charge after charge, each time retiring to regroup.As they wait for each attack the English bowmen make a V sign with their fingers, indicating that they are ready with more arrows. From their conversation you can gather that it is the French custom to cut off their fingers with which they draw their bowstrings, if ever they are captured.

At last some of the French knights break through and there is fierce hand-to-hand fighting around the Black Prince's position. The Black Prince's horse is killed under him and he and his banner disappear from sight. A French knight whom you recognise from CAIN's descriptions of coats of arms, a strong lighter it seems, is met by a knight whose name, Sir Thomas Chandos, is called out in a warning by his squire. He is an important French noble, Louis de Nevers, Count of Flanders, whose surcoat is adorned with a rampant black lion. Your Psychic Awareness allows you to pick up a myriad thoughts in the din of battle - fear, pride, blood lust, and, somewhere, a strange blank. Sir Thomas Chandos could be struck dead at any time. Will you:

Thinkstrike Louis de Nevers?
Attack Louis de Nevers with your sword?
Thinkstrike Chandos so that he falls, as if dead?
Wait to see what happens next?

There is a picture here

(Oh, that V thing...arguments there)

Wait and see.

If Yelov is hidden here somewhere, I don't think he'll be disguised as a well-known historical figure. He's more likely to be some nondescript footman/soldier. If the duel between Louis and Chandos happened before in history, we should let it play out as it did (and Chandos must have won back then, or Falcon wouldn't exist). Also, I think we'd have been told if that "strange blankness" comes from Louis, so it's likely to be someone else.

Our ancestor is in the middle of a battlefield, so he's going to get attacked a lot. If we start interfering in every fight he's in, we might end up doing more damage to history than Yelov is aiming to.

200 [score an A]

There is a great ringing of steel, and sparks fly as the swords of Count Louis and Sir Thomas meet. The Frenchman is tall and powerful, but Sir Thomas is the more skilful and he turns the Count's sword before burying his own deep in the Frenchman's side. Count Louis falls to the ground, dead, as Chandos searches, panting for breath and peering through the narrow slit of his visor, for a new opponent. Suddenly, you see an English knight in black armour whose shield bears no device but is as black as sable. He is raising his mace to strike Sir Thomas Chandos and it seems to crackle with a blue aura. You cannot detect any thought at all inside the great black helm. Will you:

Use your Power of Will on the Black Knight?
Attack the Black Knight with your sword?
Use your blaster on the Black Knight?
