TD+17: The Due Return in the Hives of Duality

Audio introduction to TD+17


TD+17 begins in relative calm, mostly resulting from the confusing series of twists between TD+13 and the arrival in the carefully-structured world of hives. The world itself is long in decay, though it is clearly the ruins of a highly-developed society, and seems more to have been abandoned than destroyed by war or disaster.

On the ship itself, newly-arrived and chosen Captain Zincovovich seems far more concerned with laboratory research than attempting to guide the ship. His first visit to the control room was very brief, as upon investigation of the captain’s control panels, he at first seemed near tears, then quickly exploded into a tirade of expletives and shrieks. His actions remained unexplained to the crew, though he kept frequent conference with Teddy Hubble, whose business from the start had been to compile all known ‘knowledge resources’ on the ship into an archive.

The remaining crew of the ship mostly seemed at ease to go about daily maintenance work, play simple dice games, and to observe their passing surroundings. As the arrangement of structures within the world transitioned, though, first into smaller, neatly-arranged compartments, then into intensely fragmented disarray, the crew began to act with increasing irregularity, until at the core of the world, all behavior tended toward an acrobatic sort of violence. The ship’s forward progress is also halted finally at a massive core of densely-packed powdery glass, which no amount of digging and dynamiting could seem to reduce.

The danger created by the crew fortunately concluded, however, upon Zincovovich’s surprise discovery, when he emerged from 6 solid months barred in the his quarters with new navigational equipment and enough Norwegian Rot to transition out of the decayed core of the world.
