Book 15: Delegates and Delegation — Part I: Confidence


BALA-AMIN: Captain Murtaugh, we're both busy.  I have a proposal.

MURTAUGH: I'm listening.

BALA-AMIN: Lieutenant, you grew up on Earth, right?

SORLIE: Yes, sir.

BALA-AMIN: Serendipity!  Captain Murtaugh has never been there before.

Captain, you'll take Lieutenant Sorlie with you as a cultural liaison.  She can tour your marvelous vessel en route.

SORLIE: Earth is actually very big, and kind of multi-cultural.

BALA-AMIN: A cultural liaison is critical, then!

SORLIE: We moved when I was eleven.
