Book 18: Mandatory Failure — Part II

Note: The removal of the capstacks from Soulward Honor's drivetide compensation inertiics (DCI) resulted in the DCI drawing the last of the power from the deck grav captstacks. As the ship is already effectively disabled, the only result of any import is that Sergeant Schlock and Captain Foxworthy no longer stick to the floor.

Seriously, that's it. The microgravity has no bearing on the rest of the story. Nothing to see here.


SCHLOCK: Permission to hide, Captain?

ELF: We're not staging an ambush, Sergeant.

ELF: And if you planned to ask permission for things, you should have started by asking for permission to be here.

SCHLOCK: You would have said no.

ELF: "I won't like the answer" isn't an excuse to not ask the question.

SCHLOCK: Right! I'm going to hide.
