|'The Synderton Experiment'
by Barry Letts
Avon and the crew are tired of running. They want to negotiate with the Federation, gain protection and settle down on a planet of their own. And the wealthy Syndexia seems just the place to do it. Or so they think.
It turns out that the Crew's arch enemy Servalan is ahead of the - but it's not the same Syndexia she's after. Servalan is on the trail of a certain Doctor Rossum, inventor of the nanochip.
Easily implanted in the brain, the nanochip will give its controller total power of that person. And if nanochips were imbedded in a whole population...?
The race is on in the deadly game. Who will reach Doctor Rossum first - Avon or Servalan?
