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


BRISTLECONE: Teraport denial just dropped, sir.  Ennesby and Tagii have done it.  We're free to go.

TAGON: In what?  Your hull is no longer airtight, and you only have battery power.

BRISTLECONE: I can teraport, and I can negotiate a direct 'port to the Parnassus Dom interior.

Or I can call Petey and he can collect us.  We have lots of options.

TAGON: Don't call Petey.  Better yet, secure our comms.  This place needs to stay secret for a while longer.

TAGON: Teraport into the can and retrieve Xeno and eff-ess.  We regroup here.

BRISTLECONE: Sir, we finally have the means to escape this station.

TAGON: Yup.  And that means we no longer need to.
