Book 11: Massively Parallel — Part IV: Mallcop Command


SHODAN: Captain, between you and me, why did you negotiate away our weapons and armor?

SHODAN: Is it because you think we need the challenge?  Do you want us to learn and grow by doing everything the hard way?

SHODAN: Did last month's Credomaran thrill ride turn you into an adrenaline junkie who needs more and more risk in order to get a fix?

SHODAN: Or are you just a really poor negotiator?

CAPTAIN TAGON: The bonus for not scaring the shoppers was huge.
