Book 16: Big, Dumb Objects — Part IV


NARRATOR: Broken Wind...

KATHRYN: The U.N.S. fleet just spotted an inbound object. It will strike Uli-Oa at a shallow angle along the equator.

We have about six minutes to prepare for the hit.

CDRE TAGON: We don't have anything along that path. There's nothing there to get hit.

KATHRYN: It's moving at point-four-one cee, and masses about two hundred thousand tons.

CDRE TAGON: Okay. In six minutes it's going to hit nothing very, very hard.

KATHRYN: You need more "very" in there, Commodore.
