Ace: Now what?
Sky: This is about as close as you can get to my lab without grav boots. There's a fully assembled blaster in the bag on top of the other supplies. It works just like a 1911 with a beavertail.
Ace: Got it.
Farah: A what with a what?
Sky: Which is why there's only one blaster ready. And don't either of you mess with the flat flashlight thingy. One of its modes is “mince.”
Sky: It'll only take a couple of micro-cycles for me to reach the lab. Then I'll transport you in one at a time.
Farah: Transport? Why couldn't we have waited where we were if you were going to use the transporters?
Sky: First, the bad guys knew where to find us. Second, my transporter isn't part of the ship's network. It's power and range are limited. Third, I've only used it to retrieve things out of the fabber. I've never used it for anything living before, so the shorter the range the better.
Farah: Wait! That sounds dangerous!
Sky: How risky do you think it might be if I'm willing to use it on my mother?
Farah: Oh. OK.
Sky: If there are any problems, I'm sure I'll be able iron them out before I try bringing up Mother, X, and Ace.
