The Transcript For This Page
Looking over Guy’s left shoulder at Bert, who is leaning way forward so as to make direct eye contact with him.
Bert: No, we don’t have any weapons of mass destruction like those the UW uses against unarmed populations.
Bert (2): But do you remember that tour we took of the mining operation at Ghetty?
Medium shot of Guy looking back at Bert, eyes widening as he gets the implication of Bert’s words. We can barely see the corner of Bert’s head in the far left of the panel.
Bert: We do have multi-megawatt industrial cutting lasers, tons of conventional explosives and even small nukes for mining.
Reggie and Guy. Reggie is looking menacing. Guy is looking like a deer caught in the headlights.
Reggie: You really don’t have any options here, Guy. If you go back with our claim for 80 million Continentals, your career is over.
Reggie (2): If you tell ‘em we’re rich, they might be foolish enough to try to enforce UW law out here.
Bert and Reggie, from Guy’s POV. Reggie is still being menacing, but now Bert is looking sideways at Reggie with an expression of grave disapproval.
Reggie: If they do, we will send the very few survivors home with their tails between their legs, if they still have any.
Reggie: And if we receive any ballistic presents, we will return the favor. Can you spell ‘extinction-level event?’
