Book 10: The Longshoreman of the Apocalypse — Part II: Enter the Longshoreman


Captain Tagon: Kevn, I need you to fab some surveillance gear for us.
Captain Tagon: We're hurting for lack of intelligence. I want nanny-cams and VDA nodes spread throughout the habitat.
Kevyn: We need to run some field tests on our robot longshoreman, Captain. He checks out in sim, but he won't be ready for prime-time for another six to eight hours.
Captain Tagon: I need that surveillance gear yesterday, Kevyn. Send the robot down as-is, and get fabbing.
Kevyn: When he said "hurting for lack of intelligence" I didn't realize just how literally he wanted to feel the pain.
