Book 7: Emperor Pius Dei — Part IV: Touch and Go


Ennesby: What's this ship called anyway?
Captain Tagon: We haven't named it yet.
Captain Tagon: I want a name that sounds hopeful, but that still reflects some of the ship's past. A name that the Company can embrace, and that our clients will like so much that they want to spend money to have it on their side.

But I don't want historical names, or blatant references to any of the ship's former campaigns. The name needs to be something of ours.

Ennesby: Hmmm. . . Touch and go. . .
Captain Tagon: Yeah, the process is kind of touch-and-go.
Ennesby: No. That's the name. "Touch-and-Go."
