Once the Sorsons demonstrate their disdain for members of the Galactric Federation, the Thargons accept their deaths and release Mike. Commander Evans' report puts the American president in favor of dealing with the Sorsons (who can share advanced technologies) and in disfavor of the Tomorrow People (who withhold it). Sorson scout ships visit the Earth, hovering over nations' capitols before General Vishishnu finally decides to visit the American president and play upon his greed for an alliance. As the Sorson Captain begins training Commander Evans to pilot their spacecrafts, John, unable to get anywhere with the Sorsons, visits the Galactic Trig, where, in addressing them directly, he's arrested for impertinence. In addressing the American President directly, Mike gets shot. Written by
