Book 1: The Tub of Happiness
Battle for the Wormgate

Transcript

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?'
