Book 3: Under New Management — Part III: Board of Accidental Tourism


Kevyn: Reverend, your civilization uplift robot is complete.
Reverend: Excellent! Is it going to last long enough?
Kevyn: It is, but military parts weren't up to the required durability spec, so I had to cannibalize other gear.
Uplift Bot: (thinking) zzzz
Reverend: What in heaven's name do we have on board that is more durable than military gear?
Nick: Stupid m'chine won' gimme my chupaqueso! I'm hungry!
Schlock: Forget it, Nick. The Reverend says it went to vending machine heaven, wherever that is.
