Book 9: The Body Politic — Part II: Royal Flush


Doctor Bunnigus: A chance remark I made to the Captain got me to thinking. . . I can't see why amorphs don't live forever.
Doctor Bunnigus: That thought rattled around with what Theo told me about his conversation with you, about how you effectively do live forever.
Doctor Bunnigus: Then I remembered that your fellow gerontocrat, Rod, told Kevyn that Schlock's kind evolved from long-term data storage devices your people created.
Doctor Bunnigus: Suddenly I find myself very, very curious. Do you mind if I pick your brains for a few minutes?
Vog: Given the context, I'm going to have to say that yes, I do mind.
