Book 16: Big, Dumb Objects — Part II


IAFA: Captain, six of the twenty vessels are changing course to engage us.

TAGON: Iafa, did any of them move before our light got to them?

IAFA: The two furthest from us.

TAGON: Outstanding. Now we know the range of the hypernet jammers.

IAFA: Shall I issue the usual "under attack" distress call?

TAGON: Sure, but say something about how we were provoked into killing some pirates.

Make it sound friendly.
