The Searcher finds an escape capsule in a field of asteroids, and rescues a golden-colored boy from it. Shortly after, the Searcher is struck by an asteroid, and Asimov is saved when the boy uses telepathic powers to alter the molecular structure of a metal beam that fell on the admiral. The boy, whose name is Velis, says that he cannot repair the disabled ship in the same way as he is too young to have sufficient power. But an adult friend imprisoned on a nearby planet can help if Buck and Hawk can free him.
