NARRATOR: Across town, on the aft deck of the support frigate TT-12 Maxim 39...

PARA: It's play time! Who wants to go play?

SILKSILVER: Oh! Is it me?

TARPAULIN: Mistress Ventura, please be careful.

PARAIs it you? Are you Silksilver, the good girl?


TARPAULIN: That Sosheki outmasses you by two orders of magnitude.

PARA: Do I look worried?

TARPAULIN: No, but you've only grown back five centimeters of hair since you last asked me that question.
