Book 1: The Tub of Happiness — Meet The Mercenaries


Der Trihs: So, what's this thing do?
Kevyn: That's my prototype for a new hyperdrive. I call it the Teraport.
Kevyn: It reduces the subject to standing gravitic waves, and then transports them, and itself, through billions of nanoscopic wormholes to the destination. It will revolutionize interstellar travel, and make me rich, just as soon as I get some marketing capital behind it.
Der Trihs: So, it rips you apart and teleports you in pieces?
Kevyn: Basically, yes.
Der Trihs: And you call it a "Tear-apart"?
Kevyn: Teraport. Geez! You sound just like my skittish investors.
