This was the prison-cell deck. Along its main corridor were the barred doors of scores of cells. From behind the bars, convicts glared like caged wolves as they passed. A raging tumult instantly arose. Threats, maledictions, oaths, were hurled at the Futuremen as they passed along the corridor.
Not a criminal in the System but had good reason to hate the name of Captain Future. He had sent many an evil-doer out to the gray inferno of Interplanetary Prison to which these men were destined.
The tumult rose. The senseless shrieks of the madman Rollinger added weirdly to it. He seemed unaware of the raging voices. Then, as he glimpsed a sudden flash of movement beside him, he yelled a warning. A Venusian convict in one of the cells had hurled out through his barred door a little noose improvised from his belt.
The Venusian tugged hard, snatching the atom-pistol toward himself as Future shouted. Captain Future spun and charged that cell-door with superhuman speed. The Venusian had got the pistol into his hands. His blazing black eyes looked over its sights at Curt, with deadly purpose. The crash of blasting white fire from the atom-pistol grazed over his head and fused a patch in the metal ceiling. The gun clattered to the floor. He picked it up and grimly returned it to the scared young Mercurian lieutenant.
Her brown eyes were shadowed by dread. Raging threats were following Curt Newton and the others as they went on along the prison-deck. But the bellowing order of a huge Martian in one of the cells put a period to the tumult.
Kim Ivan orders it. The uproar quieted almost magically. But one voice remained unquieted. The uncanny shriek of John Rollinger still reached their ears as they left the prison-deck. For many days, the black ship had droned out through the System on a zig-zag course.
At Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus it had stopped, to pick up more sentenced criminals. Now, with more than two hundred convicts aboard, it headed for Neptune, the last stop before reaching Pluto and the prison moon. The convicts imprisoned down in the cell-deck had growled and grumbled, but seemed reconciled to their grim fate.
Yet Curt Newton had not been entirely reassured. Upon the first day of the voyage, he had voiced his doubts. Captain Jhel Theron, who had command of the navigational operation of the Vulcan, was a veteran of the Patrol. He was a tall, grave-eyed Uranian, bald like most of the men of that planet, his saffron skin darkened by years of exposure to the unsoftened radiation of space.
Distinct from these fifteen members of the operational crew were the guards of the convicts. They commanded eight non-coms of the Patrol, who watched over the convicts. Curt Newton and the Futuremen had gathered with Ezra and Joan and the captain in the chart-room just abaft the bridge.
Ezra Gurney snorted. GRAG and Otho, bored by the discussion, had got into one of their interminable arguments. Curt left them with Joan, and went down with Captain Theron and Ezra and the Brain to conduct his inspection. The Vulcan, as a former small liner, was built along standard lines. It had three main decks, one above the other. Top-deck held the big bridge-room, the operational and chart rooms, and officer quarters.
The little cabins occupied by the Patrol officers and by the Futuremen were in the rear part of this deck. The mid-deck, which had formerly contained passenger cabins, had been redesigned into a cell-deck.
Entrance to it was only through two massive chromaloy doors, one fore and one aft. Both were locked and had guards posted outside them at all hours. The cyc-deck, as the lower deck of a liner was usually called, was a noisy, crowded place. Captain Future and Simon and the captain followed the old marshal down the zigzag companionway to the fore door of the mid-deck. It was locked, and two armed Patrol officers stood guard outside it.
The instrument looked like a powerful searchlight, beside which was mounted an eyepiece that resembled binocular tubes. When Curt Newton entered the cell-deck corridor with the others, a low, muttering growl ran along the crowded cells.
It quickly subsided, but the caged criminals glared in silent hate at the tall, redhaired planeteer who was the greatest enemy of their kind. Wheel the machine along, will you, Ezra?
He began his X-Ray inspection of each cell along the corridor. The searchlight projector of the scanner flooded each cell in turn with invisible Roentgen rays. Through the fluoroscopic eyepiece, Curt Newton could have seen the tiniest scrap of metal in the cells.
But there was nothing.
The gray-clad convicts had not even any metal in their plastic belt-buckles or shoes. Even their dishes, water-jugs and eating utensils were of soft fiber or unbaked clay.
The mad Earthman had been confined in a cell to himself. The ex-scientist stared at him, but made no answer. His haggard face and peculiarly burning eyes gave them all a creepy sensation.
John Rollinger had been a famous biophysicist, Curt knew. He had specialized in encephalographic research, testing the effect of various form of radiation upon the human brain.
Boldly using himself as a subject, he was supposed to have shattered his mind in his experiment. But Kim Ivan, the big, battered Martian who shared a neighboring cell with Boraboll, fat Uranian swindler, greeted Curt with a calm grin. His froglike grin deepened. But there was no tool, instrument or tiniest scrap of metal anywhere in it, nothing whatever hidden. He looked up at the grinning pirate.
Ezra snorted. The big pirate laughed. Curt Newton finished his close inspection of the cells.
When they had gone back of the cell-deck, and its massive door was again locked and under guard, Ezra Gurney challenged him. At each world where they stopped, the new prisoners brought aboard were thoroughly scanned. But no attempt to smuggle tools or weapons was detected. Now they were drawing near to Neptune. The eighth planet was still more than a billion miles ahead, but that was only a few days of travel at the great speed with which the Vulcan was flying through space.
It was when we were after the Wrecker. Curt nodded grimly. There was a burst of laughter. McClinton, a lanky, spectacled, stammering young Earthman, was the butt of constant jokes because of his inordinate fondness for prunes.
He always kept his pocket full of dried ones, which he munched ceaselessly as he supervised the cyc-room. When Curt and Joan and Otho went to the bridge-deck, they found Grag leaning against a section of glassite window and looking disconsolately back toward Earth.
The big robot turned to them. Otho had a somewhat similar pet, which he called Oog.
That miserable little moon-pup? He has about as much sentiment in him as a Venusian fish. Grag swung wrathfully on the android. The Face of the Deep - ebook.
