Book 16: Big, Dumb Objects — Part I


BALA-AMIN: You're familiar with Celeschul's "Special Assets" law, I assume?

CDRE TAGON: I'd better be. I wrote the stupid thing.

BALA-AMIN: Then you knew you were breaking it when you left retirement and took command of a company of mercenaries in service to a foreign power.

CDRE TAGON: I wrote it. I can re-write it.

BALA-AMIN: That's not actually how law works.

CDRE TAGON: I know members of the legislature who would disagree with you under oath.

BALA-AMIN: Okay, that's not how law works for regular people.
