Book 6: Resident Mad Scientist — Part I: Primate Principio


Captain Tagon: What's on your mind, Rev?
Reverend Theo: I'm worried.
Reverend Theo: It's our employer. . . Petey, the A.I. who spans a fleet of warships. . . The entity bent on dominating an entire star system.
Reverend Theo: Captain, we're not working for a person. We're working for a giant, soulless, all-consuming thing.
Captain Tagon: How's that any different from working for a corporation or a Government? I mean, besides the fact that the pay is better?
Reverend Theo: I'm never going to get these people into Heaven, Lord.
