THEO: Commander, have a look at this, please.
KEVYN: What is it?

KEVYN: Lieutenant Bunnigus brought back a gift for Commander Foxworthy. Elf hasn't opened it yet, but the label looks... lacey.
KEVYN: So yes, I understand. We are doing all we can. It's mostly bluster, but we're still going to ride into their space behind a triple salvo of missiles.

KEVYN: If we're not slowing down to engage, what exactly are we doing?
TAGII: Accelerating, of course. We'll hit their exclusion zone in twelve minutes.
KEVYN: Next question:
