Chapter 1
Cadet George Hanlon stood stiffly at attention. But as the long,
 
long minutes dragged on and on, he found his hands, his spineand his forehead cold with the sweat of fear. He tried manfully tokeep his eyes fixed steadily on that emotionless face before him,but found it almost impossible to do so. Tension grew and grew and grew in the room until it seemed thevery walls must bulge, or the windows burst to relieve thepressure. The cadet felt he could not stand another minute of itwithout screaming. Why didn't that monster say something?What kind of torture was this, anyway? And why was he here inthe first place? He couldn't think of a single reg he had broken--yet why else would he be called before Admiral Rogers, the dreadCommandant of Cadets?In spite of his utmost efforts to stand eye to eye with thecommandant, Hanlon couldn't keep his gaze steadily on thatfeared visage. His eyes insisted on straying, time after time,although he always forced them back. He caught glimpses of thedozens of communicator studs and plates on the huge metaldesk. He saw the bit of scenery showing through the window. Henoted the pictures of great Corps heroes that adorned the walls.In fact, he had to look at anything except those boring, impassiveeyes fixed so steadily on his own face. If only he could gain suchperfect control of his nerves. If only he knew what this was allabout!By the big wall chronom he saw he had already been standingthere at rigid attention a full five minutes. The second hand creptaround again. Six minutes! It dragged slowly around once again.Seven minutes. Then the unbearable silence was mercifully broken by theadmiral's voice."In some ways, Mister, you're quite a stupid young man," he said."I'm inclined to be disappointed in you."Hanlon gave a start of surprise, and forced himself to scrutinizemore carefully that enigmatic face.
