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


GEN. TAGON: Obviously Eina-Afa's builders tooled up first, devoting their original infrastructure to building more infrastructure.

HENRI: But consider the final scale!  Eina-Afa is evidence that somebody built a PTU foundry that can eat planets.

BARRY: It's like finding a spent rifle round the size of a house.  Somewhere, somebody has a rifle that fires rounds that size.

TREVOR: "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from a really big gun?"

HENRI: Maxim 24.

GEN. TAGON: I enjoy my Maxim 24 moments a bit more when I'm standing at the other end of the sufficiently advanced technology.
