Book 6: Resident Mad Scientist — Part IV: Old Habits Die Hard


Gavclones: Kevyn, isn't it more likely for an attacker to just smash the whole habitat? I'm not sure individual bodyguards are enough.
Kevyn: That's why our A.I. has an array of armed sensors maintaining a six-light-minute perimeter.
Gavclones: Uh-huh, yeah. I was there when you told him to set it up. That means I'm paying you to do something that you were going to do anyway.
Kevyn: You're not paying me to set up the sensor array. You're paying me to warn you if anything shows up.
Gavclones: You mean you wouldn't have done that anyway?
Kevyn: Our friendship will probably last longer if I don't try to answer that question.
