Rand and Annie volunteer and successfully deactivates the Brain and the fortress is destroyed nearly trapping Scott and his veritech inside before the explosion. The Regis loses contact with the simulagent Ariel in result of interacting with humans and their emotions. Rand, caught in a sandstorm, inhales pollen from the Flower of Life and learns of the real reason why the Regis is on Earth.
