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


PETEY: Consider yourself commandeered, Ennesby.  Follow the big ship out of the system.

ENNESBY: Right.  Sorry captain.

KEVYN: Petey, what's going on here?

PETEY: Isn't it obvious?

KEVYN: Well... all I can figure is that you decided to attack an entire star system as a feint to draw off the Battleplate Vredefort, so that you could escort us from the system with minimal collateral damage.

PETEY: See?  Obvious.

UNS MARINE: "Minimal collateral damage" and "entire star system" do not belong in the same sentence.
