If there wasn't going to be a huge explosion, then why did they let us go?
I didn't have the planet held hostage. I just had us, and our ship.
. . .aaand the police officers on deck three. That must be the collateral that kept them from letting us disintegrate.
And it worked! Just like I planned it.
If Tagon makes me give you a medal, I'm going to pin it to your eye.
