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


BANGER OFFICER: Confirmed!  The L.Z. has been nuked.

BANGER CMDR: Sound an all-hands.  Take us down.

BANGER OFFICER: Sir, planetary government forces will be...

BANGER CMDR: *interrupting* Very upset with us.  I know.  I'll talk to them.

BANGER CMDR: "We were just station-keeping, and then boom!  A nuke on the surface!  So we made haste to Ground Zero to render assistance."

"We didn't think to file a flight plan, we were in such a hurry to help."

BANGER OFFICER: Nice spin, Commander

BANGER CMDR: Remind me to tell you about the time I got a service star instead of a court martial.
