Book 7: Emperor Pius Dei — Part VI: Long Arm of the Law


Captain Tagon: Gahhh! How did we end up here?
TAG: I was told to take us someplace safe. We were being tracked. Hiding in unclaimed space would have resulted in our immediate capture.

Much of claimed space shares extradition with the U.N.S., so we would also have been immediately captured.

TAG: Of those places with no extradition, only the Fleetmind can stand up to the U.N.S. long enough for you meat-types to figure out a way to stay free.
TAG: I am sorry. Were you just whining rhetorically?
Captain Tagon: Yes, but thank you for that concise political analysis.
