Book 9: The Body Politic
Part V: Collecting


Xinchub:Hello, Admiral. How goes your little secret-keeping expedition today?
Admiral Emm:General, what are you doing? Besides committing treason, of course?
Xinchub:I'm handing Project Laz'r'us and the future of our races to someone who is not completely incompetent.
Admiral Emm:Treason for principle rather than profit is still treason, General.
Xinchub:Oh, I know. That's why I made sure to get paid really well for embracing these principles.
