Book 16: Big, Dumb Objects — Part IV


IAFA: Authenticated teraport inbound...

Murtaugh's payment is here now.

TAGON: Iafa, how much money is that? Like, how much is it worth to the Esspererin?

IAFA: In terms of the Esspererin scavengers' observed PTU extraction rate, those three corvette-grade hulls represent roughly five times what the scavengers can pull out in a year.

TAGON: I don't think they want us to call them scavengers.

IAFA: Should I learn that they took Uli-Oa by force I will cheerfully upgrade them to "pillagers."
