Book 16: Big, Dumb Objects — Part II


PARA: I'm not saying "no hull." I just want to know what the original Oafan hull actually accomplished.

ELF: The enemy's breacher phalanx only managed to punch a single 80 centimeter hole, but the plasma pouring through it cooked everything. Kill shot.

PARA: Gotta stop missiles further out.

Ditch the pricey hull, and focus on more point defenses and better shields.

ELF: Tagon likes the fancy hulls. A downgraded hull will be a hard sell.

PARA: Paint a racing stripe on it?

ELF: Oooh, nose art!

We distract him with nose art.
