Book 1: The Tub of Happiness — Battle for the Wormgate


Kevyn: Petey, have you finished hard-wiring a teraport to the skiff?
Petey: Ummm, Yes and no.
Petey: That skiff was only a four-ton boat, it was little more than a glorified taxi, and was completely beneath any crew members of mine, especially you and the admiral.
Kevyn: You keep saying 'was' where I expect the word 'is.'
Petey: I can't use the word 'is' when I talk about the skiff, not unless we assume time travel, or maybe parallel universes.
Kevyn: Can we assume 'viable mode of transportation,' or perhaps 'replacement cost?'
