Inhaltsangabe
Ende des Jahres 3583 halten die menschenähnlichen Laren und ihr Konzil der Sieben nach wie vor die Milchstraße besetzt. Nur das Neue Einsteinsche Imperium der Menschheit, das sich in einer Dunkelwolke versteckt, leistet unter Atlans Führung noch Widerstand. Hotrenor-Taak, der Statthalter des Konzils, lässt deshalb ein Netz des Todes in der Galaxis errichten. Sein Ziel: Mit Hilfe des Netzes will er die Zellaktivatoren ausschalten und so die Unsterblichen töten. Der Widerstand der Menschen wäre am Ende, und selbst Perry Rhodan könnte nicht mehr in die Heimat zurückkehren.
Währenddessen geht die unglaubliche Odyssee der Erde und ihres Mondes weiter: Bei der Versetzung in eine unbekannte zone des Universums wurde Terra nahezu entvölkert. Fremde Raumfahrer entfalten auf dem Planeten nun bedrohliche Aktivitäten. Die wenigen überlebenden Menschen um Alaska Saedelaere nehmen den Kampf gegen die unheimliche Macht und ihre schwarzen Raumschiffe auf – denn Terra darf nicht erneut zum Spielball kosmischer Mächte werden…

In the Command Office. I heard what Wallace said. He wanted you put under arrest at first. Confined to quarters. He would have gone to Earth Central on this, I'll just bet on it. Him and his authorization. Is that what you would have wanted? Sheridan was trying to protect you from that. " She shrugged. "He says he believes me, of course.

Before he would let her say a word, he deactivated her computer and swept the rooms for bugs. "All right," he said finally, "what's this about Mars? " "No!
