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


NARRATOR: Ascending along the ragged edge of an ancient repair...

TAGON: I wonder why they repaired this with conventional materials.

ELF: You know how expensive it is to fuse exotics to a seam.  If it was cheap, we could have repaired the Touch-and-Go.

TAGON: This station flaunts the wealth of a thousand systems.  A proper patch doesn't feel expensive.

ELF: And yet here is an improper patch.  What are you thinking?

TAGON: I am thinking that I want this to be a thing they can't do.  I just woke up, and I'm already tired of being humbled by this place.
