SPECIAL EQUIPMENT Spacecraft K-NEL. Ion rocket motors (3) only. No time-travel facility. Operated as extension of K9s central computer, No armaments. Shape, smooth triangular block. Colour, white. Speed: UNDISCLOSED.

When K9 arrived on Tellus, he was immediately shot through tubes, along conveyors, up escalators, down gravity shafts -and into the office of the president of Tellac Inc.

Outside the insane mechanical rush went on -everybody hurrying, nobody walking.

Above the whole complex rose a vast dome. Beyond it, the thick yellow factory smoke filled the air.
There were no trees on Tellus. Even the grass was plastic.
