Book 14: Broken Wind — Part II: Can Full of Sky


HIOEFUA: *on screen* Would the finishing of the job be benefitting from a redefining of your tasking?

TAGON: Usually "redefining of tasking" works against us.  It's called "mission creep."  Things never get easier.

But if you want to redefine the mission along practical lines, I'm willing to listen.

TAGON: Also, I suspect there are members of my crew who would sleep easier if you weren't asking us to sterilize something the size of a planet.

GEN. TAGON: Lots of conscience around here, Son.  Way to pick 'em.
