Book 4: The Blackness Between — Part III: Trouble in the Outjack


UNS Lieutenant: Colonel, we've lost touch with a pair of our provisioning scouts.
Jaksmouth: What do you think it is? Signal problems deep in the outjack?
Narrator: Zoojack Alpha field HQ, 711th U.N.S. Marines
UNS Lieutenant: I'm thinking "Charlie Foxtrot," sir. We lost everything, transponders, IFF, Hnet. . . all at the same time.
Jaksmouth: You know what they say. It ain't a proper Charlie Foxtrot until you've got the brass involved.
UNS Lieutenant: Oh, look at that. You're involved.
