Book 2: The Teraport Wars — Quest for Second Sight
It may surprise some readers to learn how well-read Captain Tagon is. After all, while some images may be part of the collective 'common knowledge,' not everybody knows what a koala looks like.


Kevyn: Captain, Before any of us go groundside, we need new equipment.
Tagon: We don't have the budget for new armor, if that's what you're after.
Kevyn: You've forgotten the fabber, sir. Petey is equipped to service and replace field equipment for 25,000 tausennigan ground-pounders.
Tagon: Who were built like something that sprang from the unholy union of a koala bear and a hobbit, as I recall.
Kevyn: I think we can work through that with a few modifications to the spec, sir.
Petey: Racists don't get customized armor.
