Командовавший кампанией полковник велел ему стеречь пленников и ждать новых распоряжений. Ричард не рассчитывал, что кто-либо из офицеров рискнет предпринять самостоятельные действия, не выяснив мнения самого Накамуры.
"Должно быть, я в невесомости", - поняла Николь. Ум ее начинал функционировать после многолетнего сна. "Где я?" - спросила она себя, прежде чем уснуть.
