John lets Mike take his first solo glider flight, but while in the air a girl, Hsui Tai, contacts him telepathically, and he loses control of the glider. Just in time, John manages to jaunt inside the glider and regains control. Hsui Tai tells Matsu Tan, a Shansu monk, that she believes Mike to be the lost god Kishnu. After Tim is unable to find a reason for Mike's blackout, Elizabeth contacts John and Mike while on a mission for the Galactic Federation. Matsu Tan and the Sage discuss Hsui Tai's contact with Kishnu, and decide that he must be found so he can be �re-born�. John lets Mike take another solo flight, and Hsui Tai tries to contact �Kishnu� again; Mike manages to keep control and lands safely, and remembers the names �Hsui Tai� and �Kishnu�; he and John are convinced that Hsui Tai is a Tomorrow Person, and Tim finds some newspaper articles featuring the names, and claims that the Shansu sect kill the �Child Gods� when they reach maturity so that they can be re-born into a new body. John and Mike try unsuccessfully to make contact with Hsui Tai, who, meanwhile, is told by Matsu Tan that it is time for her re-birth. John and Mike attempt to reproduce the conditions when Hsui Tai first made contact by flying John's glider again, but the weather conditions are too dangerous. Mike sneaks back to the glider and tries a solo flight, just as the ceremony of Hsui Tai's re-birth begins; she makes contact with Mike and he loses control of the glider, crashing it.
