Book 16: Big, Dumb Objects — Part II


CHINOOK: Lieutenant Reynstein! Consultation, please.

CHINOOK: Long-Gun technology allows me to fire on targets on the other side of the galaxy.

The targets are engaged in piracy near Celgate. Shooting them is legal. My question is whether it is legal for me to shoot them from here.

MASSEY: From this distance? No exisiting precedents apply. Your case would go to court and be decided by a judge.

MURTAUGH: Easier to beg forgiveness than ask permission?

CHINOOK: I've already warmed up the guns. Reynstein needs to warm up his briefcase.
