Book 2: The Teraport Wars — The Teraport Wars


Jaksmouth: Admiral, our net snoops tell me Tagon opened our ad, but never pulled down the related R.F.P. . . He's not going to bid.
Jaksmouth: My suggestion at this point is that you call him directly and make an offer, mercenaries cannot afford to let personal pride get in the way of business.
Breya: You're assuming an awful lot about my prior relationship with Captain Tagon, Colonel.
Jaksmouth: For that matter, neither can Fleet Admirals.
Breya: Did I say 'Colonel?' I wonder if I meant to say 'Ensign.'
