‘What we have here,’ said the burly Rigelian fleet commander, ‘is a total impossibility.’

‘An impossibility,’ observed K9, ‘is usually something a humanoid mind cannot understand.’

The entire Rigelian Seventh Fleet can’t just disappear. Apart from anything else it’s against orders. So you do what you are hired to do — go find me a fleet!’
