Book 18: Mandatory Failure — Part I


NARRATOR: Cynthetic Certainty...

KATHRYN: This is a strategic analysis of the mess we're about to wade into. The next few hours are key.

TAGON: What is the U.P.A.?

KATHRYN: That stands for Uuplechan Patriot Armada.

TAGON: Is that local shorthand for "paper tiger?"

KATHRYN: Well, since the Uuplechans look sort of a lot like Earth cats, "paper tiger" would probably be a racial slur.

TAGON: I'm hearing "Yes, but not out loud."
