Book 11: Massively Parallel
Part I: High Olympus Command


Elf:Sorry for the hold-up, Driggs. Let's see the new blueprints.
Driggs:Well, the original Daehremman owner was downright paranoid, so he designed the ship to provide choke-points to his conning tower.
Driggs:It was a long, sleek design, but not ideal for knocking around with no shields along the inside of a rotating city.
Elf:And you're drawing up a ship design that is ideal for knocking around like that?
Driggs:Ideal? No. The only ship ideal for that is one that's well-insured, and that you're not riding inside.
Elf:"Buy good insurance" and "don't ride inside" are not what I want to find in the winning bid.
