Book 2: The Teraport Wars — The Teraport Wars


Narrator: Aboard the UNS carrier Dublin
Dublin Captain: General, this swarm of missiles and drones has us trapped.
Xinchub: Don't worry, Captain. Some of our intelligence efforts have paid off.
Xinchub: I have acquired a teraport procedure that should allow us to escape.
Xinchub: The enemy anti-port drones will allow teraporting, provided the initial pattern of spatial distortion matches a very complex key.
Dublin Captain: Where did you get this information, General?
Xinchub: Intelligence efforts, Captain. Don't trouble yourself with the details.
Dublin Captain: With all due respect, General, you come across as very, very slimy when you say things that way.
Xinchub: My critics forget that slime is a defensive lubricant. Slimy creatures are difficult to catch.
