Book 6: Resident Mad Scientist — Part IV: Old Habits Die Hard


Narrator: With his first forty-eight hours as acting commander complete, General (Ret.) Karl Tagon prepares his report.
General Tagon: That was the most fun I've had in years.
Ennesby: I'm glad you enjoyed yourself.
General Tagon: I'm not sure what to highlight here. Pronto's almost-brawl over carrying Gav's luggage, or Nick's actual brawl with that Unioc dressed as a cyclops?
Ennesby: I heard that the cyclops had to duct-tape his jaw back on.
General Tagon: I wish I could have seen Nick's face when he first punched it off. He was sure he'd killed the guy.
General Tagon: I just hope your Captain is having at least as much fun as I am.
Ennesby: He's probably having the time of his life. He loves wrapping his head around a good puzzle.
Kevyn: "Undefined" again. My head feels like I've wrapped it around a brick.
Gavclones: I suppose we could try defining it. That ZPE curve is the only one that makes any sense at all.
Kevyn: That might work. I've got some numbers for dark matter interactions we could plug in.
Ennesby: He's a scientist at heart. This is just what he needs to put a smile on his face.
Ennesby: A little time in front of the gravyscope, and he'll be all charged up and ready for command again.
