Book 6: Resident Mad Scientist — Part V: Instant Replay


SCHLOCK: Wait... was that pretty light the wormgate blowing up?

KEVYN: Yeah.  It was.

SCHLOCK: Howcome it did that?

KEVYN: I'd rather not say.

SCHLOCK: Quit treating me like a baby.  I can take bad news.

KEVYN: *sigh*  Okay, fine.

KEVYN: You stowed away, and changed our mass.  That resulted in us exceeding the safety margins for power consumption, and the gate's toroidal singularity collapsed when it dropped below threshold.

SCHLOCK: So... you're saying this is my fault?

KEVYN: Yup.  But at least I'm not treating you like a baby.
