Book 16: Big, Dumb Objects — Part IV


CHINOOK: Ventura and I have been monitoring the Esspees very closely on some "audition" projects. They're amazing engineers, but they're not magical.

CHINOOK: We must be vigilant, but we gain nothing by exaggerating the risks.

CDRE TAGON: That isn't going to make me sleep any easier.

CHINOOK: Your lack of sleep might be more accurately ascribed to humanity's execrable attempts at risk assessment.

CDRE TAGON: Worst lullaby ever.
