Book 8: The Sharp End of the Stick — Part IV: Do You Mind if I Rewind?


Elf: Captain, I've reviewed TAG's plan, and I like it, but the timing's a little tight.

The Fabber is pushing out armor for all of our infantry now. I can have one platoon ready to go almost immediately, but those who haven't used the new stuff yet won't be combat-ready for a week or more.

Captain Tagon: Is that one platoon prepared to handle a boarding operation without additional fire support?
Narrator: "They're actually pretty enthusiastic about it. Go figure."
Schlock: Wait. . . "plunder?" I wanna come!
