Book 10: The Longshoreman of the Apocalypse
Prologue: Drydock


Captain Tagon:How does the roster look, Thurl?
Thurl:We've gained headcount, but lost cohesion. It's going to take time to put this company back together.
Thurl:I think we need a shakedown mission.
Captain Tagon:Extortion would weed out the squeamish.
Thurl:Okay, that's not the kind of shakedown I had in mind.
Captain Tagon:There's more than one kind? This is a happy day.
