Today is the day. Discharge. The Muster. 116-1100, the beginning of a new chapter in life.

The infoband you were issued at arrival onworld beeps twice, the message flashing on the screen...

"...REPORT TO ARCOLOGY SIX, LEVEL 17. SECTION N. NUMBER 268... PLEASE REPORT FOR SERVICE BENEFITS TO WINDOW F... KEEP PEDWAYS CLEAN! HAVE A GOOD DAY!"

The day is going to end in a change of venue from your current highport accomodations, so you pack to Travel. From what you have seen of this advanced but lawless world, you are beginning to hope your stay is a short one...

...beep...

(a new message on the infoband... a soft female voice purrs with warm authority)

"The Oxygen Board welcomes you to Wrexham Prime... this message indicates your initial account expense confirmation, and your agreement of Cr200 payment for your domestic account activation. Thank you! Remember... Breathe Easy... with The Oxygen Board!"


It is a short ride on the Trav Tube, down the "Quill" of the Arcology/Beanstalk complex to Arcology Six. On this world, the Orbital Cities are tethered to the surface Arcologies by one of what Clarke called a "Space Elevator".

The System Data Tag says the Arcologies were built back in 850, and it shows. The facilities up and down have seen some massive population flux. Pocket Torch Grafitti is everywhere. Even on the up port walls.

Weak Reddish light of Wrexham's star shines through the glassteel piping of the Trav Tube as you descend to the Arcology... through a tremendously thick expanse of atmosphere. So dense it near sloshes against the outer shell of the Trav Tube...

After about 25 minutes, you arrive at Arcology 6's Terminus... You are there with a group of 30 or so other people, also seeking the Muster Office on Level 17. Ahead of you is a cluster of 5 cylindrical elevators... 203 levels down you go. Until at last you enter Section N.

The Muster Office is the only one lit in rows and rows of other offices which rise up stadium like along the walls of the Level... you walk quickly through the deserted gloom. into the Brightly lit waiting Room.

Armed and Armored guards literally herd you towards a small window marked "registration" on it. A hawkish, middle-aged woman sits stonefaced on the opposite side ot the glass...

"Name, Service, and Terms of Service?"
