Subaltern Tam clears his throat
Can we perhaps parlay our youth and inexperience into advantage in lobbying for additional supplies? You know, speak up brashly about how impossible the situation is and the former senior officers not wanting to rock the boat? Could we even get the supply ship expedited that we requisitioned to replace Grant?
On a less practical note, and with all due respect, I don’t see how dealing with the TSN on a transactional basis will work. No one is going to fight the ISN for money. The TSN will fight for us if they believe in us. Our transactions will be the currency of trust, of information vital to their cause, like knowledge of the terrifying weaponry and how to slow or disable it, intel on how to protect or free those they care about.
