NARRATOR: Aboard TT08-11, the mercenary flagship Breath Weapon...
TAGON: If the flagship is ship number 11, my ship will be number twelve, right?
MURTAUGH: Ship twelve is Kevyn's. The Maxim Thirty-Nine.
Put it up, Iafa.
TAGON: Maxim 39...
"There's a difference between spare parts and extra parts."
TAGON: Between the name, and the Daysun-Tingo hull, that's obviously a support frigate.
TAGON: And if it's Kevyn's, it must have redundant suites of milspec fabbers, and a huge lab.
MURTAUGH: Two labs. One of which he thinks is still a secret.
TAGON: I'm surprised Kevyn didn't go with Maxim Fourteen.
MURTAUGH: "Mad science means never stopping to ask 'What's the worst thing that could happen?'"
TAGON: That's the one. Don't you think that would fit Kevyn better?
MURTAUGH: "Maxim Fourteen" would be an emblazoned excuse for reckless engineering.
It was, of course, Kevyn's first choice, and we all agreed he couldn't have it.
ship: *printed* MAXIM 39
TAGON: If you were worried about reckless engineering, you shouldn't have let him build two labs.
