| First appeared in Galaxy, January 1976. Before Mote was published, 50,000 words were cut from the text, including this Prologue which Larry and Jerry have entitled "Motelight." It describes how the astronomers of New Caledonia first noticed the brightening of the Mote, which was the launch of the Moties' laser-powered light-sail craft.
Following "Motelight" is a series of articles describing the physics of the Alderson Drive and Langston Field, and the society and politics of the Empire.
