Book 11: Massively Parallel — Part III: Credomar Command


PI: "Hyperspace death-ray" is completely logical!

Credomar was built before teraports, and is too big for wormgates.

That means it had to be fired where it was built.

PI: Now... since it's not sharing the system with anything worth attacking or defending, it was never meant to be fired at local targets.

EBBIRNOTH: Okay... I guess firing through hyperspace makes sense, assuming it's even possible.

EBBIRNOTH: But... "death-ray?"

PI: It sure isn't gonna launch prayer beads.
