An asteroid-based array of mirrors has been knocked out of alignment, depriving an laboratory complex on a neighboring asteroid of heat and energy. Chris is sent to realign the mirrors, but en route he discovers two stowaways: Loki and Jake, a chimpanzee with whom Adrian has been conducting telepathy experiments. When Chris is injured during the intricate repair procedure, there’s no way Loki can safely finish the operation, leaving only Jake – but Adrian’s success in telling the chimp what to do via telepathy hasn’t been encouraging.
