I couldn’t permanently harm the men I was after.
I also couldn’t communicate with them because access to their comm was blocked. I held my left hand high and broadcast an image of my badge with scrolling ID under it, leaving it in place in the air before me and controlled by my onboard PAD as I reached
for my airbelt controls.
The men stopped working and pointed at me as I pressed the controls of the airbelt.
The airbelt lifted me from the ground and shot me toward the wreckage. Two of the suspects nearest me pulled laser pistols and took aim. They didn’t use slug-throwers because the resulting recoil would wreak havoc on them in the microgravity. Laser pistols didn’t have a recoil issue.
