Book 16: Big, Dumb Objects — Part II


MENENDEZ: With your leave, Commodore, Sanctum Adroit will handle the investigation. We will create the paper trail you need, complete with a chain of evidence.

We've got a reputation to rescue. It's in our best interest to spin a believable story in which we were helpful.

Our data team will write a few pirates into a "rat-fink saboteur" backstory, and we'll finger them during processing, to "rescue them from arrest."

CDRE TAGON: Will you be able to actually rescue your patsies before their crewmates kill them?

MENENDEZ: Probably, but we're picking some very bad people so we win either way.
