Book 16: Big, Dumb Objects — Part IV


KATHRYN: Probes found this "tree," which is a transplant from the Pereri system.

It has been adapted for local gravity, and is large enough to sustain a colony of thousands of Esspererin.

KEVYN: If there's a colony here, we have a legal obligation to ask their permission just to be in orbit.

TAGON: We're already in orbit. I bet we can get away with lots of things without asking for permission.

ENNESBY: Is it lawyer time? You're making noises like it's lawyer time.
