Book 1: The Tub of Happiness
Meet The Mercenaries


Shv'uu:Sir, we are receiving a radio transmission.
Tagon:And? Get a fix on it and come back to me when you have something to report.
Shv'uu:It's originating from a Warrant-class Battlecruiser that just came through the wormgate. They are closing at point-six cee.
Footnote:About 402 million MPH.
Tagon:That's much better. Now, can you tell me what they are saying?
Shv'uu:I can't make it out,sir. The carrier wave isn't carrying anything.
Shv'uu:Oh! silly me. I found the problem.
Shv'uu:It's not a transmission at all. It's their targeting radar.
Tagon:So they're not saying "Have a nice day."
