Book 18: Mandatory Failure — Part II


CAPTAIN KAEPU: Yesterday things were simple. It was just us, and too much work.

CAPTAIN KAEPU: Today it's us, too much work, and angry U.P.A battlegroup, four warships full of mercenaries, an unknown band of looters, and I don't dare ask what else.

GUGRO: Do you dare spin your ladder cycle around?

TARPAULIN: Hello, Captain Kaepu. I belong in the category you've labeled "company of mercenaries."

CAPTAIN KAEPU: Yesterday that category wasn't even a thing, let alone a thing that belongs on my ship.
