Book 14: Broken Wind — Part III: Exhalation and Exit Strategies


NARRATOR: Command Deck...

KEVYN: We got the canisters open.  They're made of gold-plated graphite.

KEVYN: Two of them held ingots: some gold, some aluminum.  Mostly empy space.

KEVYN: The third contained a rolled up sandwich of aluminum foil and gold foil.

It's very fragile.  The cylinder was filled with neon, though, so nothing decayed.

TAGON: But you tore it, and now it has started decaying.  Right?

KEVYN: Learning history by destroying artifacts is a time-honored atrocity.
