Book 18: Mandatory Failure — Part II


NARRATOR: Spindle Superopolis, Eina-Afa...

IAFA: Hello? Chinook?

It's Iafa. Can we talk?

CHINOOK: Talk? Why is your ship within E.M. effector range of a processor hub?

IAFA: This is an important conversation. Hypernode comms can be terribly impersonal.

CHINOOK: "Impersonal."

Okay, why are your shields up?

IAFA: I don't want our peaceful, personal chat interrupted by gunfire.

CHINOOK: Do not underestimate my willingness to accept collateral damage during an argument.
