Book 1: The Tub of Happiness — Bombs Ahoy


Narrator: Emergency planning session in progress...
Tagon: Massey, what will trip these nukes on our hull?
Massey: One's on a timer, one's wired to the docking clamps and a pressure switch, and there's an inertial switch on the third. It will blow if the ship moves.
Tagon: Crap. That's thorough. Do you know how big they are?
Massey: About the size of a watermelon.
Tagon: I mean the yield... Kilotons? Megatons?
Massey: The label said "3TT-Yield".
Kevyn: 3TT... Three Teratons... Captain, that's not nuclear yield. That's the kind of label you'd see on a conversion bomb. Just one of those will take out the kitesfear, the entire hellevator, and then severely, irreparably irradiate this side of luna.
Tagon: Tell me again why i'm not allowed to use profanity or obscenity right now?
Narrator: Get back in character.
