But the Terrans had still not perceived the Saturnians’ sophisticated defenses. Even now, as the Sensoids swept by, the entire leftover civilization was amassed in a subsaturneous carcass factory, planning a series of witty reprisals on certain amusement-seeking community leaders on Terra.
While Guan-o-bombs and Charbeams had rained down upon the surface, melting planned communities and demolecularizing multitudes of creatures on the Intergalactic Endangered Species list (including the Hybrid Rare Mineroids, certain to cause a furor among the Ecoservatives), the Saturn dwellers remained safe and humble under the protection of the anoshield. Caution was still exercised to insure concealment but many furry folk now freely fuzzed through the atmosphere, ingesting ammoniweeds and thinking unkind thoughts about their attackers.
The lesser relatoid advised others in the carcass factory of the situation and, as one, 80 furlike Saturnians teleported back to the surface. Congregating in a throbbing pile of pilosity, they began to rub briskly together. Soon a powerful anoelectrostatic charge had built up in the sleek fur, which Quand 20E used as a catalyst to propel a mega-telethought spaceward. Then, with Level Five focalization, he directed the telethought to the Erudation and Evaporation Facility on the distant settlement of Boondock.
Direct assistance for Quand 12 was now out of his tendrils. Snorting a succulent ammoniweed into a chewpore, Quand 20E hoped the never-present Boondockos would for once see fit to intervene in this neighboring galactic squabbling ... and, in the nick of time.
