Part V: Might Makes Right-of-Way

Transcript

UNS Govt Suit:The good news is that we recovered the project Laz'R'Us data. Lazkowicz had it hidden inside a custom cryokit, which we just recovered.
UNS Govt Suit:The bad news is that the cryokit spent several months in the possession of a band of mercenaries who knew that it had valuable data in it.
UNS Govt Suit:The good news is that we have that band of mercenaries in passive tractor-lock right now. They are one spoken order away from being compressed into neutronium.After that, it's just routine paperwork full of prepositional phrases like "In the interest" and "of system security"
Xinchub:The bad news is that, in the interests of system security, I need them alive.
Narrator:Actually, most of us would tally that under 'good' news.
