Book 11: Massively Parallel — Part V: Command and Conquer


NARRATOR: High Olympus Shipyards, in orbit above Mars...


ENNESBY: In a TUX?  Where's Tagon, and what have you done with him?

CAPTAIN TAGON: Thurl!  Officer's briefing in five minutes.

THURL: Make it ten and we can meet aboard the Touch-And-Go.

CAPTAIN TAGON: Yeah... about that.

CAPTAIN TAGON: On approach my ship looked... shorter.

If it wasn't the only ship here I wouldn't have known it was mine.

THURL: I'll put that on the briefing agenda, Sir.  There are a lot of things we need to cover.

TAGII: Don't open that hatch, Sir.  This weapons blister currently opens into space.

KEVYN: Nice.  Tagii, exactly how many of these things do we need to cover?
