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


PETEY: As I was saying, my probes have detected some six thousand massive gravitic generators orbiting in and around the accretion disk at the galactic core.

PETEY: It is my hope that we need only contact their operators to avert the disaster.

CAPT. KEVYN: It probably won't be that easy.

PETEY: Regardless, we are prepared to try the easy way before resorting to doing things the hard way.

CAPT. KEVYN: You do know the easy way is usually mined.

PETEY: You're being optimistic.  The shared mythos of ground troops throughout history indicates that the easy way is always mined.
