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


UNS MARINE: Captain, the Vredefort has moved off to deal with a more immediate threat.

KEVYN: And your little squad of thugs is supposed to be safe with us?

UNS MARINE: There are three boats and hundreds of drones tracking your ship right now.  You're not going anywhere, and you'll find that U.N.S. Marines make poor hostages.

ENNESBY: Captain, would you and the jarhead please have a look at the tac screens in the wardroom?

KEVYN: When you've already been flipped out of the frying pan and into the fire, what do you call it when you get flipped again into something even worse?

ENNESBY: I don't know.  I'm re-indexing "frying pan" for a higher baseline, though.
