Book 18: Mandatory Failure — Part II


NARRATOR: Aboard Maxim 39...

ship: *printed* MAXIM 39

ENNESBY: Captain, remember when I described the legal mess as "inconveniently tidy?"

KEVYN: It was distressing, and it happened five minutes ago. Yes. I remember.

ENNESBY: Well... I can make it conveniently complex, but only if your wife the commander doesn't destroy any evidence.

KEVYN: You're a warship pilot and a licensed attorney.

Stop using weasel words.

ENNESBY: Tell Elf to please stop breaking things. We have engineers for that.
