Book 16: Big, Dumb Objects — Part III


NARRATOR: The spindle vault, Eina-Afa...

CHINOOK: It sat next to Cindercone, and is essentially identical. I've flushed the preservation gels, and am now warbucking the annies.

SORLIE: Thank you, but an eight kilometer spherical superfreighter is a bit much for a research expedition.

CHINOOK: It splits in half, Captain Sorlie.

SORLIE: Giant bowls are handy, but we haven't enough chips for that much tzalsa.

CHINOOK: You're headed into a hurricane. I'm providing you with a pair of mountain-sized, armored umbrellas.

SORLIE: This place... I need to stop thinking small.
