Book 16: Big, Dumb Objects — Part II


CHINOOK: You and I both live here. "What will we do if we die?" is kind of a silly question.

KEVYN: Yes, but would you die if your defenses failed, and the station was destroyed?

CHINOOK: I'm backed up. I would re-instantiate in each of the remaining Long Gun Corvettes.

KEVYN: Then what?

CHINOOK: Then my fleet of murder ships would hunt your killers until their deaths, or the heat death of the universe.

KEVYN: That went to a dark place.

CHINOOK: I came from a dark place. If everyone I love gets killed, I'll go back.
