Book 16: Big, Dumb Objects — Part II


NARRATOR: Pugna-Culurbis, the Sanctum Adroit depot

MASSEY: It's been eight hours, Colonel. What's the hold-up?

MENENDEZ: The Quartermaster-In-Chief dismantled both of our turnkey precinctories for upgrades. The components are still scattered throughout the depot.

MASSEY: Assemble it while we travel.

MENENDEZ: This is not a mobile depot, Mister Reynstein.

S.A. Sergeant: Colonel, we're tracking an eight-kilometer spherical artifact on an intercept vector.

MASSEY: Cindercone's Law: anything whose longest dimension is less than eight kilometers is mobile.
