Book 2: The Teraport Wars
Part I: Kickin' Bu'uthandi and Takin' Names


Breya:Twenty billion refugees...
Jaksmouth:That's just an estimate. These prison modules have the capacity for nearly a hundred billion, and we've only checked a few.

Jaksmouth:Assuming nobody else drops out?
Jaksmouth:Assuming no more than four days travel time...
Breya:Get on with it.
Jaksmouth:And assuming thet the crews will be willing to be very cramped...
Breya:You're working your way up to bad news. Spit it out.
Jaksmouth:Maybe a million.
Breya:Is it too late to go back and re-work those assumptions?
