Chapter 101 - Self Configuring Modular Robot[]

Nelson Elam dreamed...

...and his dreams, were a replaying of a Clan Spaniel two-parter he had viewed as a five year old in the Creche.

Episode 178, 'planet of the robots'.

If not for his conscious efforts to recover Star League memories and mementos, he might not have known that that Clan Spaniel adventure had been based on the mid-22nd Century youth novel, "Planet of the Dead"-a speculative fiction work that revolved around the adventure of Cadet Tara Strongley and the "Terran Survey Academy Ship Rickenbakker" as they encountered an intelligent, viral, lifeform.

One that infects hosts in order to take them over, and, in the unedited version, failed repeatedly to make peaceful contact with the crew of the Rickenbakker.

In his dream, he was running from the 'zomboids', even though even in the dream, he knew the aliens were just trying to communicate.

Nelson Elam woke in a sweat in his temporary quarters, heart racing.

He didn't know why.
