Well, apparently the system running these orbs reset, because suddenly Ash is grabbing me at the same time Lexx is dragging Sresaka towards the elevator. We all squash ourselves into the elevator just as an orb tries to get in. And Lexx looks like he’s trying to contact it telepathically, or else he pulled a muscle during our flight to relative safety. It certainly isn’t conversing with the rest of us.
We are not going back to those portals (and we figured out there are thirty-two destinations), I hope. I am really starting to miss our ship!
