Book 10: The Longshoreman of the Apocalypse
Part II: Enter the Longshoreman

Transcript

Narrator:Shift change aboard the mercenary warship Touch-And-Go. . .
Massey:We're being sued. A lot. I've filed countersuits.

We're also being excoriated by the press. It's fair though. We did accidentally almost puncture the Habitat.

Thurl:Whoa! Massey, you had one disaster after another. Why didn't you wake Tagon for help?
Massey:There's not much he could have done beyond yelling at me, and that would have slowed the countersuing down more than a little.
Massey:Besides, Ennesby said the Captain needs his sleep. Apparently Tagon is only supposed to be awakened if he is on fire.
Ennesby:And those are his own words
Ennesby:He was on duty for almost three days straight. He needs to wake up on his own time.
Thurl:Unless he's on fire?
Ennesby:In his own words, yes.
Thurl:Does this count?
Sign:MURDERCENARIES SHOULD BE EATEN
Sign:NO BLOOD FOR FOOD
Sign:BURN THE AN-TAGON-IST
Infobabe:This morning's demonstration hasn't turned violent yet, but they are setting at least one thing on fire. . .
Massey:As effigies go, it isn't too bad.
Thurl:It looks more like Aquaman.
Ennesby:I bet it is easier to steal an Aquaman mannequin than to find a good looking orange shirt.
