Book 13: Random Access Memorabilia — Part II: Write


NARRATOR: U.N.S. Int-Aff-Int base, Europa...

Unknown 1: We got a screech from Usar's suborned A.I.

I am afraid that Usar has been compromised.

Unknown 2: Shall we transmit the dash-nine and limit our exposure?

Unknown 1: You mean a minus-nine?

Unknown 2: Were that a minus sign, this would be math, in which case you should say "negative nine."

Unknown 1: Sending a suicide order to an agent sounds pretty negative to me.

Unknown 2: When next we trawl ancient texts for code words, we shall standardize pronunciation first.
