Synopsis: "Sucker Bait" was adapted by Meade Roberts from an Isaac Asimov short story and dealt with the paranoia of alien encounter rather than the reality of it. A scientific mission to the lost Earth colony of Troas is totally confounded as to why it failed decade before. Also aboard the ship is Mark Annuncio, who is a Mnemonic, one of a few specially selected and rigorously trained children whose special talents for memory and intuition are desperately needed in a colonised universe which mere computers are inadequate for keeping track of everything that needs to be remembered. Although he is not an expert in any one subject, Annuncio knows more about the individual fiends of science than the officially-recognised "experts" on board, causing great tension between them. Arriving on Troas, none of the scientists can discover a reason for the loss of the colony but can Annuncio solve it.
