Book 12: Force Multiplication — Part I: Black and White


ENNESBY: The Tunguska was destroyed in an uncharted system we called "Zoojack."  We were hiding there.  They came hunting us.

KATHRYN: Do you expect me to believe that Tagon's little band of malevolent morons took down a battleplate?

ENNESBY: Of course not.  A mob of dark-matter Pa'anuri destroyed the Tunguska.  They mostly ignored our tiny cruiser, which is why we got away.

KATHRYN: Cowards.

ENNESBY: Yeah?  Well, once we found bullets that would work I took on a mob of Pa'anuri a million times that size using that same cruiser.

KATHRYN: Now you're just making stuff up.
