Book 1: The Tub of Happiness
Battle for the Wormgate


Tagon:The gatekeeper we've got on board tells me that his people will pay highly for live prisoners, Petey.
Petey:I'm sorry, sir. I tractored in the derelict blockade ships, and dumped their mass into the fabber.
Tagon:Am I hearing this correctly? Did you eat the blockade fleet?
Petey:That metaphor works.
Tagon:To fuel an onboard factory?
Petey:The fabber, yes.
Tagon:But weren't there still surviving crew members on board those ships?
Petey:You'd be surprised to see how many of today's popular blueprints require fresh organics.
