throughout a galaxy
When I investigated Belem’s disappearance I was much disturbed to learn how many other Mechandroids had vanished at the same time. I immediately assigned an all-out search, Galaxywide. But I was not too hopeful.
Technically, the Corps Diplomatique Terrestrienne is dedicated to the protection of Terran interests, Galaxy-wide.
Melody tried to compose her thoughts, but they were a jumble of uncertainties. What decisions could she have made to avoid this present doom?

Once she, and more importantly, Mr. dea’Gauss, was satisfied with the terms of the trust, universities galaxywide had been solicited to apply for a grant.
