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


Ennesby: Captain, we want the public to like us. There are twenty-eight million people on Credomar. Even with force-multipliers, we're outnumbered.

We need some positive press, and Hannibal can get it for us. . . If you're nice to him.

Captain Tagon: I can be nice. If "nice" is good tactics, I can be nice.
Ennesby: You also need to not say anything stupid.
Captain Tagon: It would probably look funny if we duct-taped my mouth shut for this interview, right?
Ennesby: We already kidnapped Hannibal. I'm going to go out on a limb and say "no duct tape," regardless of who it's on.
