Book 18: Mandatory Failure — Part III


NARRATOR: The theater of operations in Outer Uuplech...

TAGON: Attention, Gruuli's Legacy.

This is Captain Tagon. Keep your distance from the wreckage. You can't hide behind it.

Enemy fire will turn it into shrapnel, and you're a soft target. That'd be as bad as a direct hit.

KAEPU: We're not hiding behind it. We're salvaging it.

TAGON: Doesn't matter. You're too close.

KAEPU: That's the whole point.

We'll be really close if my engineers are correct about the inelasticity of the upcoming collision.
