Frank, and his fellow operatives were kept busy on earth, protecting the inhabitants from each other, since many people were affected by mind altering rays, and these people were made to think that they were fighting for a cause. Janes, Kate, Chris and Louise continued to grow with their newly acquired powers which were far stronger than those of regular operatives. In fact, the group grew to twelve, four from another planet and they were soon involved with missions to protect both earth and particularly the planet Tishog. This group soon became known as the Hymaidem, and each member were sworn to secrecy because of their advanced powers. James discovers the Head Quarters for the Deltrum group on Earth, and helps to defuse its potential powers on Earth. Louise is held captive by the group and is saved with James help. Frank learns of James involvement and orders him to never mind travel again, though he does not learn of James true potential. Disruption to civilisation on earth continues, thus keeping the operatives busy. However, it is soon learned that Tishog is a planet that is in grave danger of being invaded. The Hymaidem take action on this planet, and again later, with the operatives from earth, still, keeping their identity hidden. Tishog is saved but the activities on earth increase. The navy is involved with potential destruction of a major city, which requires intervention by the hymaidem. The army too is similarly affected, along with some towns. The operatives are kept very busy and Frank is called to a meeting of the Universal Council to explain what has transpired. Earth seems safe with the increased presence of Trellinian space ships, but why the increased action of mind alteration? Is earth the real target? This is what the operatives and Hymaidem had to solve.
