Ancillary Mercy - Adjoa Andoh, Ann Leckie

"At least I have a captain. And a crew for that matter. Where's yours? Oh, that's right. You misplaced your captain and haven't been able to find another, and nobody aboard you wants to be there, do they?"

 

- Mercy of Kalr and Kalr Five [transcribed, and I don't have my print copy to compare, so the punctuation may be off]

 

I had forgotten about this bit. I love how Mercy of Kalr has a crew member for just about every situation. Kalr Five makes a perfect proxy for a verbal slap fight between ships.
