Book 11: Massively Parallel — Part III: Credomar Command


KEVYN: Lieutenant, I hate to admit it, but I need your explosives expertise.

PI: What with, Commander?

KEVYN: The teraport evacuation system needs to be able to sever these connections between the city surface and the underlying superstructure.

The cutting will need to be fast and clean.

PI: Looks like amorphalloy and carbonan struts.  A brisant plasma charge will work.

KEVYN: Unless I've miscounted, we'll need upwards of thirty million cuts in ten seconds.

PI: You have made me so happy.
