In The Mind Net we encounter a vast space fleet exploring the cosmos. They find some organic remnants in the lfeless soil of an ancient world. But when the space explorers test these mysterious objects they suddenly find their ship trapped in an alien mental web and face a menace never allowed for on their computers.
