It stands as a testament to humanity's superior nature that even in the face of a galactic Armageddon, some people can still make witty comebacks:
Joshua Calvert, after being arrested a second time by the same person: "Can't get enough of me, can you? So what is it this time? A million-fuseodollar fine for littering? Ten years hard labour for not returning my empties to the bar? Penal colony exile for farting in public?"
Al Capone delivers this one in 1920's style:
"Goodbye to that goddamn pain in the ass Confederation!"
""Lagrange Calvert meeting a real live god! What a spectacle! We should be able to see that clash of egos from this side of the [Orion] nebula.""
"I've always been a massive admirer of the Edenist ability to understate. But I think defining a chunk of land fifteen kilometres across that suddenly takes flight and wanders off into another dimension as a little problem is possibly the best example yet."
"I never said little."
Hamilton has a way with these things; FYI a "serjeant" is a humanoid bitek soldier clad in crab-like armor:
"The captain wanted to protest, but somehow the sight of a serjeant wearing slim purple sunglasses and a paisley-patterned backpack stopped the words from coming out."
