Book 16: Big, Dumb Objects — Part II


MASSEY: The round-trip will take twenty-two hours. Can your depot be absent from the Celgate Sector for that long?

MENENDEZ: You really do intend to carry our entire depot to Eina-Afa and back just to save a little time?

MASSEY: How much crime can a city of twenty thousand commit during each hour in which there is zero law enforcement presence?

MENENDEZ: Our underwriters have a formula for that, but it's complicated.

MASSEY: I believe the very existence of that formula validates my intent.

MENENDEZ: Issue an all-comm, Sergeant. We're going to spend a day as cargo.
