Narrator:An emergency session of the association of Ghanj-Rho Station tenants is called to order. . .
Fobottr Tenant:Commander Gamm, you leveled half of the Cho district with that fire-fight of yours.
Gamm:I can explain, if it please the council.
Gamm:There is a Tausennigan SuperFortress doing covert reconnaissance in the system. The ship has technology we wish to acquire, and we were applying pressure toward those ends.
Metisoid Tenant:Applying Pressure? You used your orbital lance on surface targets!
Gamm:Gripe if you must, but don't forget that I'm the one with the orbital lance.
Narrator:Order in these meetings never lasts long, no matter how often you call it.
