Narrator:After a hasty session of number-crunching...
Kevyn:Captain, I need to be patched out. We've found something important.
Megiddo:I'll be the judge of that. Speak.
Kevyn:The stabilizer control systems for the stellar-core toroidal singularity that drives the gate-copy system were damaged in the initial assault. Between eighty and ninety hours from now that singularity is going to release about a nonillion kilograms of mass, most of which will likely be expressed as energy.
Megiddo:not worth the call. What else have you got?
Kevyn:Well, we expect a pretty impressive supernova in about four days.
Megiddo:See, that is worth telling the fleet about.
