"Destroy it?! This is priceless archeotech. Even if it has. . ." Chambers breaks off. "Of course, you're right. I'll have it disposed off. . .along with the rest of Kreth. The components cannot be allowed to pollute a new generation of adepts." He tosses the relic into the small bin near his feet, then turns towards Camael and Eldgrim.
"Yes, my Lords, the handheld auspex units can detect such objects. Enginseer Gaius--you will oversee the screening of the Tech-Adepts on board." He glances down at the remains of Kreth. "They will be easy enough to check, we have fewer than two hundred aboard. We'll be unlikely to find another, though. The objects are incredibly rare. Why Kreth had one is beyond me, but clearly he had allies, more highly placed than he. Probably not on the ship."
Brigadier Heth nods. "My Lords, I'll go and report to Trader Lan and pass on your recommendation to free Bennex. I'm sure Lan will heed it." With a salute, Heth marches off.
"Get to it, Enginseer," Chambers says. Gaius bows and scuttles out the door, leaving Chambers and the Space Marines.
"Lan will want a report from us all soon, my Lords. Are there any other precautions it'd be wise to take? I'm afraid I'm not familiar with the procedures for sniffing out tainted individuals."
