Book 9: The Body Politic
Part II: Royal Flush


Narrator:The Mercenary Warship Touch-And-Go arrives in orbit around Yoming.
Ennesby:Captain, do you remember the last time we were here, and they'd been using high-energy orbital weapons on metropolitan targets?
Captain Tagon:Of course I remember that. It's one reason I decided not to take any jobs here.

The other reason was that they vaporized our employer, and we still had his deposit.

Captain Tagon:Why do you ask?
Ennesby:Because I don't think the orbital defenses are going to be much of a threat this time around.
Captain Tagon:Hrrmm. . . More of a navigational hazard.
