Book 1: The Tub of Happiness — Big Haunted Battleship


Tagon: Okay, ship, your allegiance is to me, your new captain, right?
Petey: Sir, it is, yes sir. But I have this problem with the nature of reality, and it appears quite irreconcilable, leading me to conclude that my safest recourse is to destroy the ship.
Tagon: Your first order is to... to...
Kevyn: Here. Hurry.
Tagon: ... Delete any and all references to the recursive probability simulation running on all rings and matrices, and for the good of the company, crew, and your captain, repress and deny any desire to restart said simulation.
Tagon: A.I.'s can be ordered into repression and denial?
Petey: Ohhhh... You have no idea how good that feels, sir.
Kevyn: This one can.
