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


PETEY: Don't worry about it, Kevyn.  There will also be thousands of capital ships from Nejjat, Korbinto, Golbwer, Creeth, and at least a dozen other major galactic powers.

CAPT. KEVYN: Aren't Creeth and Golbwer still at war?

PETEY: That's my point precisely.  The Korbinto have at least two mortal enemies on the roster.

When you get right down to it, every one of our allies has taken shots at another of our allies recently.

KEVYN: So I shouldn't be worried about them ganging up on you, because they'll be too busy distrusting each other?

PETEY: Exactly.  The only force any of them will be able to agree to gang up on will be the force or forces in play against the galactic core.

CAPT. KEVYN: The terror I've bottled up inside me is asking for a milkshake, and maybe some nice muscle relaxants.
