Book 16: Big, Dumb Objects — Part I


BALA-AMIN: Why not just ask for fabbers? Why a battleplate?

CDRE TAGON: We knew that a battleplate was under construction for a rogue U.N.S. intelligence agency.

That agency was hurting your citizens.

We figured that if our timing was right, we could do you a favor by cutting them off at the knees.

BALA-AMIN: Don't act altruistic. Admiral Emm and her "rogue agency" had a long-standing axe to grind with you.

TAGON: Cutting them off at the knees with that axe was like getting paid twice.
