hypo and perhaps twenty colored vials for it, most of

them blue and a handful red.

Several of the blue ones had evidently been

used.

"I surmise," said Spock, "that the blue

vials are a sedative and the red ones, of which there are

fewer, are a couateractive stimulant. Let us

hope that these hypo sprays are not encoded

to the Senites like their weapons. I suspect the

reason we cannot operate their weapons is that the

Senites may have implants and transmitters

inserted into their bodies during the surgery."

"If you say so." Renna shivered.

"There are a lot worse parts to the surgery than

that."

The scaly fugitive on the bed began to twitch

slightly, and Spock quickly loaded a red vial

into the hypo and delivered it into the alien's arm. The

Vulcan motioned Renna to step back, while he

loosened the fugitive's bonds and took a

position behind the bed. Groggily, the scaly being

came to his senses and sat up. He looked first

at the unconscious Senite beside him, then gazed at

Renna; it didn't take long before he growled

angrily and lurched toward the woman. Luckily,

Spock was behind him and applied the nerve pinch with such

strength and precision that the fugitive toppled back

into unconsciousness.

"Whew!" breathed Renna as she helped Spock

return him to the bed.

"At least we know it revives them."

"Yes," said Spock, "we can revive the

captain and the doctor when we find them, but

how do we escape?"

"There are transporters," offered Renna, "but

we may be faced with the same problem we had before not enough

time to learn how to control them."

"I feel confident I can disable the

transporters," answered the Vulcan.

"Then we could escape by other means without being

followed."

"The door is wide open," said Renna,

indicating the blaze of golden lights around the

entrance to the vast cavern.

"Very well," said Spock, loading another red

vial into the Senite hypo.

"Let us search the cells closest to where you found

me."

Activity was still intense on the catwalk of

level eight, with numerous Senite doctors rushing

to and fro, keeping the waiting fugitives sedated.

A strange sort of chanting issued from below, as the

young Senites ritualistically bathed and shaved the

comatose initiates. Renna tried to ignore what

was happening down there as she followed Spock from

cell to cell.

The Vulcan had adopted a stooped posture and

slow manner of walking that made him look

ancient, but that was preferable to revealing his unshaven

chin. There was too much activity and too many

Senites on urgent missions for them to pay much

attention to the odd pair, and it wasn't long before they

found a cell where a handsome young human lay strapped

to the bed.

"Watch the door," Spock ordered.

Renna did just that as the Vulcan bent over the

sleeping figure and injected him. He left

Kirk's bindings fastened for the moment, even when the

captain began to awaken and strain against them.

"Jim," cautioned Spock, "be still. Renna and

I have come to free you, but we are in grave danger.

This is a place where fugitives are surgically

altered to become Senites. You cannot simply jump

out of bed, do you understand?"

"Yes," muttered thecaptain, ceasing his movements

and closing his eyes once more.

"Where's McCoy?"

"We have not located him yet, but we will return

when we find him. I am loosening the straps, but you

must appear unconscious or you will be sedated again.
