Book 18: Mandatory Failure — Part II


GREERA: Captain, if I had a couple of eighty-gauge capstacks I could boost the drivetide...

ELF: It wouldn't be enough.

ELF: But if we kill thrust, and disassemble the existing drivetide capstacks...

GREERA: We can hobble the ship for hours.

GREERA: I'll begin immediately. We must discharge the 'stacks first.

ELF: Because you're safety-conscious?

GREERA: Because you will tell me to drop the capstacks in the sewage reservoir, and I do not wish to share space with a fountain of boiling electric poo.
