Original title: Engrenages, 2000.
Navee is assigned a mission by Wake to investigate the steam-punk world of planet TRI-JJ 68. It’s a glacial planet that had been inhabited by a nature-communing, peaceful lot that Wake simply passed over as unworthy. But in a recent pass, they discover that suddenly a whole civilization has sprouted and reached up to its industrial age, and this in record time! Wake is now intrigued and so is Navee, as these new inhabitants closely resemble the race of which, up until now, she had been the only representative: humans! Has she found her own people?
