Book 15: Delegates and Delegation — Part I: Confidence


BALA-AMIN: Captain, I would be happy to answer the Sergeant's question for you.

MURTAUGH: Please do.

BALA-AMIN: Sergeant, this inspection is entirely optional.  Your captain invited us aboard out of respect, and as a gesture of trust.

She also hopes we'll spread the word about how lovely this ship is, greasing the political wheels for the Oafan delegation's trade negotiations.

BALA-AMIN: And of course nothing says "nothing to hide" quite like giving the inspectors a tour.

SCHLOCK: This one's dangerous, Captain.
