Book 6: Resident Mad Scientist
Part V: Instant Replay


Narrator:Colonel Pranger's "Plan B" extraction is fairly complex.
Colonel Pranger:Back inside! We've got other assets in play now!
Narrator:It includes three shuttles, eight tanks, and two squads of infantry, plus all the targets to be extracted or abducted
Colonel Pranger:Integrity, report!
Colonel Pranger:Twenty-what? I'll have your eyes for earrings! What happened!?
Mini-Schlock:Bring Kevyn out, or I'll melt another one of your tanks!
Narrator:In light of recent developments, plan "B" is a wash, and plans "C" and "D" are insufficiently resourced.
Narrator:Plan "E" is taking shape now.
Colonel Pranger:Charper! Dustoff now! Glish! I need your squad to disable that generator!
Kevyn:Colonel, I think I can take care of that from here.
Colonel Pranger:There are two enemy tanks on that tarmac right now, commander.
Kevyn:Well, have your shuttle take one of 'em out. I'll get the other.
Colonel Pranger:Are you cra-? GET BACK HERE!!
Narrator:Plan "E" vanishes in a puff of unpredictability and Colonel Pranger finds himself in the unenviable position of having to orchestrate twenty-five minutes or more of "winging it".
Colonel Pranger:Steakly, our paycheck may need some supporting fire.
Steakly:SIR! YES SIR!
