Book 12: Force Multiplication — Part III: Fight or Flight


MAX: Tarfeather, you answer to me and only to me now.

TARFEATHER: Yes, sir.  Orders?

MAX: Enable the interlocks on your magazine, and remove the step-down from your annie-plant.

Follow Major Murtaugh into the kill-box.

MAX: Wait for me to board Bristlecone.  Once the arrestees arrive, detonate your entire magazine.

TARFEATHER: My annie-plant will go fully critical, sir.

MAX: Indeed.

TARFEATHER: I estimate the yield to be in excess of six kilotons.

MAX: I shall call you "Tarmageddon."
