When Shirka detects galactic glaciers in the path of the Odyssey it makes Ulysses think they are nearing the edge of the Kingdom of Olympus. However, when analyzed the ice is unlike that encountered previously. Yumi senses that Ulysses should investigate the ice but when he takes a shuttle in closer two columns of light appear. Between them floats a strange bubble containing Mercurius - the grandson of the gods. Mercurius makes Ulysses an offer, if the hero helps him he will tell Ulysses how to get back to Earth. Mercurius wants Ulysses to steal 'The Eye of Heaven' a jewel in the forehead of Atlas - who holds up the entire universe on his shoulders. But Ulysses is warned that if he looks into the jewel it will be fatal. So Ulysses enlists the aid of Nono and the two of them climb up the body of the sleeping Atlas. But Yumi senses that the giant's heart has started to beat. Atlas is awakening. Written by Mark_a_Wood <markawood@hotmail.co.uk>
