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


NARRATOR: Meanwhile, near the galactic core...

PETEY: General Kerchak, do you have units ready to move?

KERCHAK: I do.  Funny coincidence!  Ha-ha!  Umm...  Admiral von Mauser hired Tagon's Toughs for the job.

KERCHAK: I realize you didn't want to contact the Toughs, but I had no idea von Mauser was friends with Tagon's chief warrant officer.  I...  umm...  I hope "two" is enough degrees of separation for you.

Unless...  Wait...

KERCHAK: You totally planned this, didn't you?

You are scary smart, you know that?

PETEY: Two degrees of separation will suffice, general.
