Book 18: Mandatory Failure — Part II


CDRE TAGON: Captain Foxworthy, your promotion is provisional.

That ship you're on belongs to the next-of-kin of some folks who deserved better ends than they came to.

CDRE TAGON: I cannot currently promise you a ship of your own. I wish I could.

ELF: Commodore, can I promise you that I'll return this ship to them in better condition than I found it?

ELF: Commodore?

MURTAUGH: He's this close to shedding actual tears. So, yes. Promise that.
