Book 7: Emperor Pius Dei
Part IV: Touch and Go

Transcript

Ennesby:What's this ship called anyway?
Captain Tagon:We haven't named it yet.
Captain Tagon:I want a name that sounds hopeful, but that still reflects some of the ship's past. A name that the Company can embrace, and that our clients will like so much that they want to spend money to have it on their side.

But I don't want historical names, or blatant references to any of the ship's former campaigns. The name needs to be something of ours.

Ennesby:Hmmm. . . Touch and go. . .
Captain Tagon:Yeah, the process is kind of touch-and-go.
Ennesby:No. That's the name. "Touch-and-Go."
