SORLIE: We're caught between a rock and a hard place. Per the aphorism, we need to move sideways.
KATHRYN: All the exits have rocks, or hard places. If we're going to go sideways, we need additional dimensions.
MURTAUGH: Teraport area denial prevents that, and it's too well distributed to be shut down in time.
SORLIE: That Credomaran cannon can fire through teraport area denial.
MURTAUGH: He calls himself The Long-Gunner of the Apocalypse, and we don't have his current contact information.
SORLIE: But... the "NUSPI" array in the nose of your ship. It's basically a miniature version of that cannon, right?
SORLIE: USE IT! Fire it through worm-space, past all the shields, intervening buildings, everything, and incinerate that enemy force!
MURTAUGH: The weapon requires very precise 5-space coordinates. Unfortunately, all the cameras and hypernodes down there are gone, or jammed.
KATHRYN: Scooter Squadron can put eyes on the enemy.
MURTAUGH: That... that might work.
SORLIE: Good enough. Chesapeake! Handle targeting! And please...
Please get Admiral Chu to hold off until Ennesby has fired.
KATHRYN: This solution sounds really exciting, but can we run away a little bit, just in case?
