Book 17: A Little Immortality — Part I


NARRATOR: Atop the as-yet-unnamed Dragon class cruiser TT13...

TAGON: Tell me about this "main gun" you're installing.

C.O.F. bot: It fires gravy-braided plasma. It's got a dedicated five-meter annie plant and a forty-five-meter barrel.

At long range it's useless against shields, but get close and that gravy-braid will breach the shield, and then you're blowing fire into the enemy's tender bits.

TAGON: So... it's a gun you bring to a knife fight.

C.O.F. bot: You sound just like the bean counters who killed the project.
