Book 9: The Body Politic — Part II: Royal Flush


Narrator: Quarantine lab, aboard the Mercenary Warship Touch-And-Go.
Doctor Bunnigus: I've analyzed some Xinchub-nanites, and acquired signature traces from them.
Doctor Bunnigus: Scans for those traces are coming up negative on you, Sergeant. How do you feel?
Schlock: Like going for a walk.
Doctor Bunnigus: I wish we'd been able to run these scans before you purged yourself. I have no baseline, no way of knowing whether these nanites are adaptable enough to avoid detection.
Doctor Bunnigus: I suppose we could re-infect you. . .
Schlock: A nice long walk. Pleeeease?
