Manticore Binary System

Barricade on steroids



"We've got to help them Beth. The Sol system didn't stand a chance. The dumbest most arrogant Navy in the galaxy didn't stand a chance against an operation designed by Alphas. I cannot believe a single missile with a wedge destroyed every ship in the SLN fleet without even firing. They were all huddled together in orbit with wedges down and nobody at their stations. They took a page out of my book at Cerberus and sent their entire Home Fleet to Hades."

Not really anonymous at all

Holding out

"OMG, how can you eat spaghetti from a squeeze tube?"

"These rations are delicious. You should try it. The spaghetti sauce is Prego. All the regular ingredients? It's in there!"

The Spider's first rear area assault

He can sneak up on a skunk and steal his stink.


Post mission briefing


"How did it go?"

"I've seen many systems, seen many planets, yet they all speak the same language. 'Hard aport! Hard aport!' But it's too late."

Bolthole
The first scouting mission to Darius. A powerful force as scouting parties go. Reports directly back to Bolthole.


Admiral Foraker:
Admiral Hemphill:



Debriefing.

Simultaneously.

"You don't look so good."

"We don't feel so good either."

"What happened?" Collectively.

Eyes staring into space, still lost, dazed, confused over what just happened. "It looks like an island oasis."

"Because everything is invisible."

"How did all of you escape?

Escape? Nobody escaped. They allowed us to live so we can bring back a message."

"What message?"

The captain of the scouting party ... they'd sent a Captain, the mission was crucial, lowered his head.

"Look at our ships."

They had limped back to Bolthole with nothing left of their ships but the compensator.

Hamish Alexander's Memoirs


"I'm telling you. She does not have a problem with math. She has a problem taking tests. Probably because it is beneath her. She is an Alpha. She is affronted as an Alpha being asked to regurgitate something so simple in class. But Honor is an on-the-fly kinda girl.

For instance, when an opponent attacks, there is a Point of No Return. That is when an opponent has come too far in-system. Honor can calculate that in her head. Instantly. "You're too far in ... aren't you? Bug."

After the sucker punch


"Why did you strike me Nimitz!"

<I told you I did not ever want to do it. But you told me to slap you hard if you were ever feeling like you did when we went to Sol. So I slapped the ever-loving ssssss...celery out of you>

.

"I didn't mean for you to actually slap me Nimitz."

<We have had this discussion before Honor. Treecats do not mince words. We mince prey. Treecats do not say what we do not mean. Why do humans do that? You promised me long ago that I can have all of the celery I can eat. You still have not delivered on that promise.>

<A two-leg will choose to slap the shit out of someone in a heartbeat, but I cannot figure out why a two-leg would choose to do that. Then you have to deal with the stink of it. Like that time when you slapped the shit out of Houseman. I told you that would get stinky. I only chose to slap the celery out of you because you have been holding out on me since that promise.>

<Look at all the celery!>


Honor always carries celery under her cap.

Honor on the fly

A pirate hungry for a rabid freighter

"Oh boy! Look at this great big juicy target out here all by its lonesome."

Didn't your momma tell you not to mess with malignant animals? The MAN can not afford to lose any freighters to piracy.
