    Topsider 1: “Are you sure about this?”
    Topsider 2: “I know I had my keys when I left the colony, and they were gone when we lit up that lizard colony. If they fell anywhere, they’d be about here.”
    Topsider 1: “Wouldn’t it be easier to get out and look for them yourself?”
    Topsider 2: “What, and get the suit dirty? I think not.”

    They might not be able to see them. They can still hear the pinging of the homing device attached to the bottom of that brain, which is how they found Unity.

    It’s the casserole! Er, I mean Clive.

    It’s possible that being underground masked the signature of the homing device… if there is one. No idea why they’d be so eager to get back the CPU of a transport though. Lot of energy for such a simple device.

    If the TS’ers are tracking Clive, it wouldn’t be just to retrieve the hardware, but to catch whoever is carrying him around.

    Perhaps they are looking for stragglers from Friendship?

    If it is Clive it would be only a NFC oder RFID chip with short range…..maybe only for logistic. And they recognized it as the burned down the other lizzards to ash.

    The best guess I can come up with are that Clive has a transponder that is sending info on his location. It might be something designed to alert the TS to a PT that is in trouble. If the power supply to the brain is disconnected, the PT would be dead in the water and its drivers would be stranded. Thus it would make sense that the TS may have protocols that require them to search for stranded PTs.

    The other possibility involves the footprints that the group was leaving. Those would be visible beyond the ditto shield. Wally said that the ditto shield was 100 yards across. That would explain why the TS are lighting up the area around our group as opposed to shining a light directly on top of them.

    Kirbee is proving her value to the group already.

    I’m thinking that the chameleon abilities of the dittos aren’t perfect. The Topsiders may not be able to detect the presence of anything the dittos are screening, but they may be able to detect a background anomaly or absence of expected background pattern that the dittos can’t perfectly disguise. Perhaps the swirling searchlights are acquiring background data to establish a more precisely defined background and bring the anomaly more into focus, and allow a ground crew to investigate. Wally and company had better get moving, while the ditto anomaly can’t yet be precisely pinned down. However, their movement itself might be picked up, so that is a risk as well, but one which will become relatively weaker if they hunker down..

    Remember that mass is still detected even behind ditto shields… That’s how they fired at Marx’ ship a chapter or two earlier

    In Superdimensional Orguss, the good guys hid by exerting a jamming field that hid their location.
    The commander of the bad guys countered by ordering his units to fire into the center of the jamming field.
