** Later in the series, Marcus Cole realizes that Ivanova isn't paying attention to his report: "There's always the threat of an attack by say, a giant space dragon, the kind that eats the sun once every thirty days. It's a nuisance, but what can you expect from reptiles? Did I mention that my nose is on fire? And that I have fifteen wild badgers living in my trousers? [She finally reacts.] I'm sorry, would you prefer ferrets?"

These and other incidents demonstrate how Dike isn't suitable to be the company commander of a frontline unit.
