D-555 THE TRIAL OF TERRA Fair
The Trial Of Terra
By Jack Williamson
The men of Earth were on the verge of breaking through into space. The first of their manned rockets was on its way to Luna. Now, after ten thousand years, the celestial Watchers were forced to a decision.
At the quarantine service on Denebola IV, argument and acrimony prevailed. Should Earth be allowed to make further progress and be admitted to star traffic? Or should we be judged incapable of ever achieving civilization and thus be doomed to destruction?
It turned out the decision rested with one man --- scrawny, freckle-faced Wain Scarlet, whose less than perfect conditioning caused him to hatch plans for personal gain.
The evidence accumulated, as Scarlet waited for the entity with the biggest bribe, and Earth waited, unknowing, for the decision of doom!
