Book 10: The Longshoreman of the Apocalypse — Prologue: Drydock


Shipwright: Hello. I need to speak to your Captain.
Schlock: I think he's out sight-seeing with the officers. You can call him, though.
Shipwright: No, I can't. My hypercomm went out when the flood knocked me into the bulkhead.
Schlock: Don't you ship-bots run in packs? Have a friend call him.
Shipwright: Most of my friends are being restored from backup while their chassis are drained.
