Book 16: Big, Dumb Objects — Part IV

Note: For those readers who did not drop everything they were doing in order to go back and read (or re-read) Random Access Memorabilia, the officers and crew of the UNS Battleplate Morokweng were among the principals in the late phases of the Oisri operation, and a great many of them can no longer be reached in order to comment on exactly how much better the operation could have gone.


PETEY: Oisri does not have the wealth of PTUs that you imagine.

DEVEREAUX: We don't want Oisri's resources.

PETEY: Please don't lie. Oisri's resources are something you want. They're just not your primary goal.

DEVEREAUX: How can you possibly know anything about our primary goal?

PETEY: I'm not really omniscient, but I've devoted significant thinky-time to being sentimental.
