Book 11: Massively Parallel — Part IV: Mallcop Command


NARRATOR: Arrival, "Mall-One at Terraluna Way"

CAPTAIN TAGON: Watch your step.  We've only got about a tenth Earth-gravity on this level.

BUNNIGUS: No gravitics?

CAPTAIN TAGON: "Historical accuracy."  One revolution per minute, max gee is around 1/3.

The original crew had gym and sleep quarters in tether-climbing cars 200 meters below the lowest deck.

BUNNIGUS: I never would have pegged you as a historian, Captain.

CAPTAIN TAGON: When I say "Jump" I want to know how high my troops are going to go.

But I still expect them to ask me "How high" on the way up.
