Book 2: The Teraport Wars — The Teraport Wars


Jaksmouth: Admiral, reports are coming in from the recovery teams.
Breya: And?
Jaksmouth: Well, to quote one team: 'docking with these prison modules is a real pain in the butt.'
Jaksmouth: And Captain Tagon reports that safely extracting these prisoners is 'like pulling teeth.'
Jaksmouth: So. . . Since the adjusted estimates indicate that we've got twenty billion prisoners to rescue. . .
Jaksmouth: . . .I'd say this operation is going to be like pulling several mouthfuls of teeth out through the butt.
Breya: I may have to revoke your metaphor privileges for that one.
