Book 20: Sergeant In Motion — Part III


ANCIENATOR: The machine-intelligence ruling your galaxy just spent a significant amount of power sending us a message.

TAGON: Petey doesn't rule our galaxy.

SORLIE: He kind of does.

ANCIENATOR: Petey controls the single largest source of power within two-and-a-half million light years, and he advises your societies on every genuinely important decision they make.

TAGON: That's more like parenting.

SORLIE: That's just a word we use when someone rules over children.
