Book 18: Mandatory Failure — Part I


PARA: There are tens of thousands of mostly-dead people floating in space.

They need our help.

They have RED/REO blood nannies, but we have to talk to the nanobots to get the repair and revival process started.

TARPAULIN: I am not a great communicator, mistress.

PARA: Somebody else will handle that. Your job is installing the probes.

TARPAULIN: Nor am I adept at delicate medical procedures.

PARA: This will be exactly like stabbing people, except you only stab them once, and then you let them keep the knife.
