Over K-9’s objections (and under his watchful eye), Starkey and Darius attend an open house at the London headquarters of the Department. The boys aren’t there for the official tour, however – they’re at Department HQ to gather intelligence. The absence of ever-present CCPC patrols seems almost too good to be true, but there are other dangers inside: Starkey looks at an unusual framed picture and is sucked into the frame. Darius steals the frame and escapes from the Department as quickly as possible. At Gryffen’s lab, K-9 identifies it as a holographic “library card” from the planet Ukko, a world whose librarians can compress a snapshot of an entire planet into such a card. But it will take a librarian from Ukko to free Starkey before he starves on the isolated planet preserved in the picture…
