Book 13: Random Access Memorabilia — Part III: Execute


NARRATOR: Aboard the mercenary warship Touch-And-Go...

THURL: Sir, Tagii's infowar drill coincided very closely with Binnie's escape.

I hacked into a TV for a closer look and found something Tagii planted.  I can't read it, but it broadcasts a signal that is being read by Gavcorp blood nannies.

Those self-same blood nannies have been turning injured Gavs into monsters.

KEVYN: Tagii has been helping us hunt those monsters.

THURL: Helping?  Kevyn, she's been doing almost all the work.

KEVYN: So... what?  You think Tagii murdered Gavs and created monsters in order to appear helpful?

THURL: No, I think that our roboticist is working for somebody else on the side, and when she repaired and rebooted our A.I., she installed a parallel priority tree.

KEVYN: You staged a mutiny because you suspected that mutineers were already running the ship?

THURL: Yes, except that my motivations didn't have the sarcastic tone of voice.  Sir.
