Robot: My hand has now become a bathyscape linking with your airlock.  Let Shore free. Don't force me to crush you and your shelter-under-the-sea.Shore: It's been a fun vacation, and I got a lot of reading done. But---back to the real world.  Trinidad: You think it's that easy, do you?  Shore: Well...yeah.

Shore (caption): Yet as I entered the bathyscape-hand, a bouy---on a balloon--shot up past us.  I forgot there was more than one way to communicate---to signal.Shore (caption): On the surface, the bouy sent off a huge flare that could be seen for miles. A signal--but for whom? I didn't know...but didn't like it.></a></td></tr></TABLE><P><br><center><table width=80%><tr><td align=left><font color=
