Book 8: The Sharp End of the Stick — Part I: Jeopardy


Kevyn: The new body-armor is a compromise between the flexibility of our low-profile Fullerene uniforms, and the Odin suits popular with U.N.S. shock troops.
Captain Tagon: You said compromise. . . What are we losing in terms of flexibility?
Kevyn: Rigid design, for starters. I can't just cut fabric to fit, so the first batch of suits will pretty much only fit the humans.
Captain Tagon: So that's about a third of us covered. Not bad. What else?
Kevyn: You have to take off the helmet in order to pee.
