Superman and the TRS-80 Computer Whiz Kids: Victory by Computer
Linkara announces to Pollo and Eliza that he’s finally made some progress regarding the puzzle. More accurately, Erin thinks she’s figured out how it works. Linkara explains: “The world is at zero, six, and seven” means you have to take the letters from under those numbers. However, that leaves too many possibilities. But when Linkara showed the puzzle to Erin, she explained to him that the Babylonians didn’t have the concept of zero, so “The Babylonians knew the truth” is a clue to exclude any letters under the number zero. Using this information, Linkara has Nimue process the message. Since this is a message meant for Linkara, he tells Nimue to rearrange the letters into possible sentences and list them in order of most relevant to him. Nimue does so, and the results are printed out. Linkara looks at the printout and immediately becomes alarmed, ordering Nimue to teleport them to Comicon-1 now.
On Comicron-1, Linkara orders everyone else to be teleported to the ship and to bring shields up. Nimue announces she was able to transport everyone…except 90s Kid. Linkara is furious, ranting “I knew it was too easy!”
