Book 15: Delegates and Delegation — Part I: Confidence


NARRATOR: Neosynchronicity, Ops Nook...

MURTAUGH: Lieutenant Flinders, what's your read on this Haley Sorlie person?

KATHRYN: She is exactly what she looks like, Captain: an engineering specialist who does image analysis on inbound traffic.

She has no field training beyond boot and the usual annuals.  Her posting as a "cultural liaison" caught her completely by surprise.

MURTAUGH: So she's not a spy?

KATHRYN: No, she's a perfect spy.

I like her and I feel sorry for her.  She's cleared my first two lines of defense.
