Serial 27: The Valley of the Tauran Bears Edit

Main Article: Serial 27

Jon returns Rocinantè to The Dream Weaver feeling like a bumbling fool, utterly unworthy of the faith she had placed in him. But she informs him that he was the perfect instrument of her plans, and that he is now the captain of The Rocinantè.

Jon confesses that he does not share her confidence in his readiness to be a Time Captain. So The Dream Weaver offers him a little training mission to cut his teeth on.

She sends him to the planet Taurus 5, explaining that the planet has been completely written off in her book as unredeemable and doomed to destruction. Therefore, Jon has nothing to lose if he fails to do any good there. But if he can manage to plant some seeds there that might grow in the future and give the planet some value, she might decide to give it a new destiny.

Jon and his companion, Sonny, arrive on Taurus 5, transformed by Rocinantè into the form of the anthropomorphic bears that live there. But they find that there is also a population of elves, and another of anthropomorphic cat people that live on the planet - each of these three populations being, not at war, but seriously at odds with each other.

The Valley that The Tauran Bears live in has sheer glass walls. They can't get out, and nothing from above can get in.

Jon then spends a good bit of time getting to know the handicapped girl and getting involved in her personal problems.

Serial 29: The Wild West Hero Edit

Main Article: Serial 29

Having adopted a squire named Nemo from the Tauran Bear tribe, Jon is eager to show off the Sound Chaser. Jon tries to pick a destination, but Rocie informs him that The Dream Weaver has already selected their destination, as it will be a place where Jon can gain experience that he badly needs.

Jon swears a blue streak when they arrive in the old west of Polithsania, and he learns that his assignment is to become human and overcome his passionate prejudice and hatred towards that species.

In spite of Jon's instructions to be a human on this mission, he often morphs to relieve his stress, becoming a deer again and hanging out in the woods, where he has fun terrifying hunters and Native Polithsanians. But since Sonny and the two children they brought with them are stuck in human form and living in the town, Jon must always readopt his human form and rejoin them.

Jon has another source of frustration in this serial. Sonny is very well versed on the history of the old west, having been an avid TV watcher in her life as a Polithsanian housedog. Jon would be killing humans right and left if not for Sonny constantly warning him that he would be changing established history if he did so, which he's forbidden to do. Still, Jon delights in killing humans every chance he gets. He never loses a gunfight, nor does he ever lose at cards or any other game of chance.

Eventually Jon becomes revered as a god by the Native Polithsanians, after they behold his ability to morph from deer to man. And because of them his heart softens towards humanity. But a rumor of gold being found on their land has started a tragic chain of events, through most of which Sonny will hold Jon restrained and powerless to alter the fate of the first humans he has ever liked.

Serial 30: Survivors of Cygnus Edit

Main Article: Serial 30

As the travelers depart the west, they discover an uninvited guest. A Native Polithsanian child has stowed aboard the Sound Chaser. He runs wildly about the console room flipping switches and playing with various controls, while Rocie screams in protest.

Before anyone can stop him he has sent the ship hopelessly out of control, speeding towards the barrier of its temporal limitation. It reaches the barrier and smashes through it. Beyond that point there are no recognizable sounds for Rocinantè to latch onto. And she continues careening into the future of an unknown universe, far from the reach of The Dream Weaver or anyone else who might help them.

A passing time traveler of that universe saves the ship and tows it to Earth, where they are told that the only known scientist on Earth who might be able to modify Rocinantè so that she can navigate the alien universe is Perry Rhoades.

The travelers will have some difficulty finding Perry, however, as he has disappeared into a virtual universe of his own design, so that he may live among his own cartoon creations and escape the disturbingly unhappy life he has lived among the humans of Earth for centuries.

But the crew of The Rocinantè aren't the only ones looking for Perry. Victoria has also managed to track him to Earth, along with a few of his other friends from Cygnus. Both elements will learn of Perry's virtual world and converge on it to draw him out. But he will not be happy to see any of them.

In order to fulfill the request Perry required as payment for fixing The Sound Chaser, the travelers must journey to post-Ommadawn Chikyu.

Jon learns that the computer was created by Dr. Penning, using data he obtained from Raelian while he was in captivity. Jon has little pity for the human survivors who have been allowed to continue existing only because the insane computer has developed a taste for living human blood. But because of Raelian's involvement in the situation he feels compelled to help rid them of the computerized monstrosity.

The adventure also brings romantic problems for Sonny when she encounters Hazel, who was her former love interest in her life as a dog. But she has by this time been romantically involved with Jon for quite a while, and her sense of loyalty to both love interests seems equally strong.

Serial 33: The Second Sitting for the Last Supper Edit

Main Article: Serial 33

Finally making it back to Taurus 5, the Tauran Bears are all very happy with Jon for having rid them of the vampire bats. But the priests of the tribe are angered, because their religion was based on worshiping the bats as gods, and Jon's actions have put a serious crimp in their power.

More and more the Tauran Bears start to look on Jon as a religious figure. Especially when a rumor gets around that he is the son of Ra. Jon then begins treading an allegorical furry-footed path to his own crucifixion.

Meanwhile, Jon finds himself in a serious romantic quandary when Princess Tabby Tiger (his love interest from Serial No. 2) is revealed to be the leader of the cat people.

Meanwhile, responding to a distress call, an armada of Astral Pirates arrives, only to find themselves under attack by The Anthrodroids as well. The Pirate Emperor judges The Anthrodroids to be a threat to his supremacy and orders the total destruction of Chikyu. 

A hell of space battles, bombings, eruptions, forest fires and pandemonium follows while Raelian exhausts the last of his power to maintain a protective barrier over those who have assembled in the forest for salvation.

But in the end it is up to Jon. Have all his experiences been enough to give him the magic he needs to pull off the miracle that will save the thousands of humans and animals gathered before him?
