Book 7: Emperor Pius Dei — Part III: Return to the Tub of Happiness


Narrator: Meanwhile, at the galactic core. . .
Petey: Captain Tagon has a new ship.
Ennesby: I'm very happy for him.
Petey: His new ship has no onboard A.I. yet. The previous owners wiped it clean.
Ennesby: You know he's not going to let me anywhere near his new ship's computer systems. Not after I stole his last ship and got it blown up.
Petey: I didn't go to the trouble of bribing four senators and a judge on Ystre just to give a warship to a friend. I want to attach at least a couple of strings.
Ennesby: So you want mt to go kiss and make up with Tagon, and then spy for you.
Petey: "Spy" is such a short ugly word. I prefer "espionage." Those extra three syllables really say something.
