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.
