The bot responds "The orb is mobile both intradimensional and 
interdimensional space. It is both physical and extra-dimensionally 
existential. It has existence in both four dimensional and nth 
dimensional space times."

The bot pauses for a second. "Yes, it can be moved," it says.

The read out reports the reactor is now restarting, with four minutes to 
nominal power levels.

The bot informs Oz, "It appears Defenders have been summoned. They will 
attempt to take control of the Crucible."

Ted easily gets out of the cat woman's grasp, and delivers a knockout 
punch that drops her like a bag of bricks. In the other chamber she can 
hear the other members of the crew, likely as demented as the cat woman 
became, stirring and making animal-like noises.

Through the interdimensional communication device Ted can hear the rest 
of his companion's problems, but that currently isn't his problem, until 
he hears some sort of strange energy fire in the other chamber, and 
flashes of blue light.
