NARRATOR: Maxim 61 says "Don't bring big grenades into small rooms."
NARRATOR: Maxim 20 says, "If you're not willing to shell your own position, you're not willing to win."
CDRE TAGON: We're hit! Iafa, status report!
IAFA: We hit the boarders, Commodore.
Captain Tagon detonated an STS warhead in the Fabber annex.
KATHRYN: *whispering* Oh no... no no no.
IAFA: He was carrying it at the time.
CDRE TAGON: That idiot.
We could have abandoned the ship, scuttled it.
NARRATOR: Maxim 70 says "Failure is not an option. It is mandatory. The only option is whether or not to let failure be the last thing you do."
IAFA: No, sir. We would have been overrun before Boat Four could return to us.
The boarders have been neutralized. Captain Tagon's plan worked.
CDRE TAGON: Am I allowed to be happy about that?
KATHRYN: Yes, sir.
You can countermand me on this, but I respectfully advise against it.
