Book 5: The Scrapyard of Insufferable Arrogance
Part I: Hand to Mouth


Breya:Captain Kerchak, we badly need to raise some capital. Will your men do what is obviously contract mercenary work?
Kerchak:Hmmmm. . .
Kerchak:Let's see. . . In the last two engagements before his death, the Colonel had us raiding a game preserve, and then trying out hand at piracy.
Kerchak:I don't think it's possible for us to fall any further. Does that answer your question?
Breya:No, it just makes me want to cry.
Kerchak:Don't do it in front of the troops, please, Admiral.
