Book 6: Resident Mad Scientist — Part V: Instant Replay


Captain Kevyn: Do we really need to resort to mind-ripping?
Petey: Just this morning you were willing to launch an all-out assault on thousands of F'Sherl-Ganni installations, likely killing tens of thousands of them in horrible ways.

Yet you now appear to be uncomfortable with the idea of torturing and killing ONE F'Sherl-Ganni in order to save countless trillions of lives.

Captain Kevyn: Are you saying I'm being hypocritical?
Petey: No. I'm suggesting that you're more comfortable when people die as blinking lights on a tac-screen than bleeding, screaming heaps in front of you on the floor.
Captain Kevyn: Please tell me a mind-rip isn't that messy.
