Book 15: Delegates and Delegation — Part III: Conflagration


NGUYEN: Captain, I have forty thousand loyal J.S.C. officers, nanny-swept and clean, mobilized under my command.  I want to help, but I don't want my people getting nuked.

SORLIE: Understood.  We're done with that bit.


This is your battlefield, Captain.  Where do you want us?

SORLIE: Where do I...

SORLIE: Hang on just a moment, sir.

SORLIE: *quietly* Is General Nguyen asking me for orders?

MURTAUGH: Sometimes rank is a function of firepower.
