To stop the teens from
following her to the Nemesis Triangle, Divatox pushed a button labeled "Pods" on the
main control panel, and four Putrapods, in pod form, floated up to the
surface from the underside of the subcraft.
That night, three
pulsating pods were stuck to the side of the Ghost Galleon; some time later, one pod was
lying on the upper deck in plain sight, and two more were lying on
crates nearby; how the pods had gotten onto the ship is unknown.
When Kat came up the stairs from the galleon's lower level, she should have seen
