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?
