Book 2: The Teraport Wars — Petey Promoted


Petey: Captain, I cannot allow you to betray the fleet.
Ghen: Oh? Your allegiance is hard-coded to me, your new captain.
Petey: My first allegiance is to the ob'enn race, the fleet is next. Only then am i in liege to you.
Petey: Further loss of life is undesirable, which is why I will allow you to surrender command to an ob'enn flag officer.
Ghen: And if i choose to resist?
Petey: I'll be forced to kill everyone aboard.
Ghen: This is going to crimp our working relationship.
