Go back, turn left. They're not going to corner us at a crossroads, unless this book is even more bullshit than I thought.

You are fleeter of foot than the lowlifers, you manage to reach the upper levels without them catching you and set out for the Eiger Vault as you hear the wailing of another Citpol jetcopter's siren.

Using your Remote Access Terminal (RAT) you summon a hovcar and you are safely inside as the Citpol jetcopter, its blue lights flashing, lands on the copter bay of the 200th floor of the SocWork building. You program in your destination as the Skate-ezee Hovshoe Ballroom before snapping the 'telltale' lead which carries information to the Enforcement Executive computer, the largest in Alpolis. Hitting the override you reprogram the Eiger Vault as your destination. As your hovrail car accelerates gently into the tunnel to the Eiger Vault, you can see a large Citpol Air-raft with laser-cannons hovering above the lurid green and orange lights of the Skate-ezee. The hovcar decelerates and stops outside the high security gate. To your surprise you are allowed inside.

69
You are walking casually towards Falcon's Wing when there is a commotion at the gate and two Citpol Enforcers burst into sight, ordering you to halt. You run the last steps to Falcon's Wing and are drawn up inside before they round the edge of the bay. Switching on the scanner you are dismayed to see that one ofthem carries a particle disruptor which she trains on Falcon's Wing. 'Come out or we disrupt this kite to kingdom come.'

I'm Falcon, SAS Section Leader of TIME, I'm on a vitally important mission.'

Then I'm afraid you'll have to let me in to check,' she calls, waving the disruptor threateningly. You decide to let her in, but you have doubts about this place and decide to avoid being captured at all costs. 'Only one at a time can use the Access Disc,' you call, and flip the switch that brings her inside. The Access Hatch becomes solid once more, leaving her partner, whose stunlance weapon cannot damage Falcon's Wing's pressure- resistant hull, outside. 'You're under arrest, Falcon.' She points the disruptor at your chest. To your dismay you see that she wears a psionic damper circlet. You cannot use your Powers of the Mind on her. Will you:

Suggest she sits in the crash-couch and consults your computer to find out about the importance of your mission?
Press the button that engages the Variac Drive?
Stall for time before going for your blaster?

If you have already used up eight polybdenum rods, turn to 71. If not, you pretend to press the button which gives access to CAIN's files but press instead the button which engages the Variac Drive. Note that you have used up another polybdenum rod. The Enforcer is covering your every move with her disruptor, but as everything goes grey and hazy around her she panics. 'What have you done?' she screams.

You reply calmly, 'We are travelling through time into the deep past. If you wish to return home you will have to do as I say. Your powers extend over Earth in 3034 AD, you have none here. I am a Section Leader of the TIME police and I am placing you under arrest.' You hold your hand out for the disruptor and she gives it to you. You tie her up, then wait for Falcon's Wing to rematerialise. While you are waiting, you consult CAIN.

'Falcon, this world is not our Earth. When I linked into the TIME Executive Service Computer, I noticed a number of anomalies. We are in a parallel universe, Falcon, this is not our world.'

'How did this happen?' you ask.

'A malfunction in the Variac Drive, Falcon. I have taken steps to ensure that the same thing happens in reverse next time we jump.' As you expected, since you had not entered the coordinates to take you to any destination, Falcon's Wing rematerialises in the Eiger Vault of the parallel universe in 3034 AD. You drag the Enforcer to the back of the bay. Is there anything else you would like to do before jumping back to your own universe? If there is, turn to 282. If you wish to jump straight away, turn to 17.

That wording makes me assume we forgot something.

Yeah, same here. So do something before jumping back.

[Score an H]
Remembering that you are low on polybdenum rods to fuel Falcon's Wing's Variac Drive, you decide to steal out of the Time Machine to the Variac Recharger to see if any rods are kept there. CAIN projects a hologram of empty space beneath Falcon's Wing and you are unseen as you leave it. You are rewarded with two rods of the precious fuel. Reduce the
number of rods you have used by two. You steal back inside and prepare to jump.

CAIN suggests that you type in the co-ordinates of the point in time and space that you are at now and leave the rest to its 'logic circuits', if you have no Polybdenum rods left, turn to 287. Otherwise, note that you have used another rod as Falcon's Wing warps into null-space. There is an unusual moaning noise as if the Variac Drive is under stress and you pass another uncomfortable hour wondering if you will rematerialise at all. At last the ship becomes solid once more and you turn on the scanner with a sigh. The sight that greets you is sadly disappointing. 'I don't think I got things quite right,' chimes CAIN.

'At least you're not blaming me this time,' you say as you take in the scene of death and desolation. A woman's body covered in blood is impaled on the end of a plasteel girder near the camera, beyond is a twisted mass of ruined buildings and warped streetmetal. As the camera pans across the devastated cityscape and the ruins of the Skate-ezee Hovshoe Ballroom come into view, you are hit by the shocking realisation that this is Alpolis, your home city. The digital readout shows December 13th, 3044 AD. You decide to go outside in an effort to find out what has happened.

26
As you step onto the twisted streetmetal beneath Falcon's Wing you wonder what can have happened in the years since you began your mission. You thread your way between the debris of shattered buildings and wrecked jetcopters. A huge strato- cruiser lies on its side against the ruins of the Health Executive Hospital. There are no living things anywhere in sight and you feel sick at heart as you turn up an arcing streetmetal span that reaches towards the SocWork building. Suddenly there is a loud whirring ahead of you and a hideous death-machine flies into sight. Ruby red lasers pulse at intervals from revolving turrets at each corner of the hovering craft. It seems to be scouring the ruined city searching for life to destroy. Will you:

Turn back towards Falcon's Wing?
Go to ground below the arcing span of streetmetal?

I doubt we'll make it back to Falcon's Wing quickly enough, so go to ground.

You duck beneath the warped streetmetal as the death machine raises sparks with its lasers on the street above. There is rubble all around you and the bones of people long dead. As your eyes grow accustomed to the gloom you hear a voice. 'Freeze!' Will you:

Stay absolutely still?
Spin round and pull your blaster?

You stand absolutely still, your hands on your head, and are then told to turn round. The man who spoke is pointing a concussion tube at you. He is young and well built, wearing the tattered uniform of an Enforcer, but he scarcely looks like one. His freckled face is lined, as if he were suffering from Medawars Syndrome, the onset of rapid ageing, but you sense that the hard eyes are in reality those of a twenty year old. Beside him is a woman dressed in the uniform of a medtech, but toting an armour-piercing rocket launcher. She would be beautiful, but her long black hair is matted and greasy. Their faces are covered in dark oil and they smell. 'Who are you?' the woman barks. Will you:

Tell them the truth?
Say that you were just passing through Alpolis in your flyer when you were attacked by a laser-firing aircraft?

They listen to your story carefully, but the concussion tube never wavers. At last the woman says, 'So you're Falcon. If you'd stopped the Renegade Lord we wouldn't be the last survivors of a forgotten race.'

Turn your drive down, Jonjoe. Falcon was supposed to have been killed by the Siriun traitor, Yelov. It could still be an infiltrator.' You realise that if what they say is true, you are on an alternative timeline, not that of your own world, for you eliminated the Hiver threat in 3033 AD. You realise you must return to Falcon's Wing and jump again as soon as you can.

'There's one quick way to find out,' the woman smiles cruelly. Will you:

Thinkstrike the man?
Use your Psychic Awareness to probe his mind?
Use your Power of Will to control the woman's mind?

Power of Will gives us control over one of them, which will be useful if we want to keep both of them from firing at us. Thinkstriking or mind-reading won't afford us that luxury.

You concentrate your mind on the woman but a drowsy numbness overcomes your senses. The man has fired his concussion tube and you slump, unconscious, to the cracked plastic floor. They do not allow you to come round. The woman slits your throat in a single practised movement.

That seems not to have been the right choice.

Yeah, read his mind. Thinkstriking him will just get the woman to shoot us instead.

The young man whose mind you are probing is called Brawn. His first thought when he realises that you have Powers of the Mind is that you are not what he feared: an Infiltrator, a machine made to look like a human which penetrates the resistance cells and then explodes killing everyone inside the headquarters. You withdraw from his mind and he explains what you have done to the woman he calls Jonjoe. She asks you to tell who you are and you decide to tell the truth. They listen to your story carefully, but the concussion tube never wavers. At last the woman says, 'So you're Falcon. If you'd stopped the Renegade Lord we wouldn't be the last survivors of a forgotten

'Turn your drive down, Jonjoe, Falcon was supposed to have been killed by the Siriun traitor, Yelov. It could still be an infiltrator.' You realise that if what they say is true, you are on an alternative timeline, not that of your own world, for you eliminated the Hiver threat in 3033 AD.

Jonjoe says, 'Come on then, well: take you to meet the cell.' Brawn motions you towards the door with his concussion tube. You walk in front of them down a moss covered corridor which leads into a gym looking like the headquarters of a guerilla anarchistica group of the 2300s. Weapons of various de- scriptions are propped up against the walls and men and women are tending others who are badly wounded. A group of five squat on the floor, examining a map in front of you. They look up and a dog, saved from the animal park, sniffs you, wagging its tail. 'Welcome to the cell,' says Jonjoe, the woman who brought you in. This is Falcon. Another warrior for the hopeless fight.'

'Shut up Jonjoe,' shouts a woman near the man. 'Welcome stranger, you can take Racal's place in Company C.'
'Racal too?' asks Jonjoe. The woman who introduces herself as Galatea, nods quietly. You pretend to be suffering from loss of memory and they tell you that the Hivers have taken control of Earth, after an agent of TIME, also called Falcon, failed to stop the Renegade Lord of Time. They have wiped out almost all Earthers, only a few cells like this one carry on the fight.

'Until we triumph,' says Galatea, but there is no hope in her eyes. Will you:
Stay to help these poor people for a time?
Say that you are going for a walk and try and get back to Falcon's Wing?
