Book 16: Big, Dumb Objects — Part II


CDRE TAGON: Start a rumor about how the U.N.S. Anti-Piracy Task Force has deep-cover moles everywhere. Hold up this disabled pirate fleet as proof.

You get to take the credit for the take-down of a pirate menace. We get to avoid the political repercussions of Long Gun deployment.

BALA-AMIN: The U.N.S. Anti-Piracy Task Force does have moles out there.

I think they'll object to the publicity.

CDRE TAGON: So they're just competent enough to not be useful.

How... governmental.
