Earth-2 is a storm-ravaged human dumping ground, where the Rules are enforced with brutal efficiency. Number one rule: two or less to each woman. It’s Fuller’s job to determine if Saski Burampso has had a third child, and it’s his judgment that could lead to salvation for the oppressed people of the planet.
Wong nodded at the boy. “Freemont has certain gene irregularities that match the genetic pattern of many of the great leaders of Earth over the past hundred years.”
Fuller stared at Wong, hid his confusion amongst his knowledge of the Rules and his role in enforcing them. “The genetic database is on Earth, and inaccessible to Inhabitants,” he stated flatly.
“We have accessed the database, Mr. Fuller, for the past year. That boy you hold there has the genes of a great leader. A genetic pattern such as his has never been recorded in an Inhabitant before.”
“That’s ridiculous,” Fuller scoffed.
