Book 10: The Longshoreman of the Apocalypse — Part V: The Longshoreman's Apocalypse


Narrator: Aboard the Touch-And-Go, inside the city-station of Credomar.
Captain Tagon: Are they clear?
TAG: Yes, sir.
Captain Tagon: Tractor that building, bubble it, and then suck out the air. Kill the fire.
TAG: Sir, the turbulence will mix the fullerenes with hot embers, setting everything off.
Captain Tagon: At least get it contained! We're running out of time.
TAG: Tractored and bubbled, sir.
Captain Tagon: Now, can you still contain it if it explodes?
TAG: Maybe on a good day.

But we are not having a good day right now.
