    “You were accidentally hurting us!”
    “Who said that?”
    “Us! The mice!”
    “Oh! You can talk?”
    “Yes! How can you live with yourself now, you monster?!”
    “Easy. I was hurting you on purpose.”

    This kind of verifies one of my theories. Most of the species in the Galaxy are in fact not sentient. The translator tech causes non sentient creatures to appear sentient.

    Fairly clear that Ruddock is in fact not sentient. He has many fine qualities, but intelligence is not one of them. My sympathies go out to King.

          If your meter of sapience has “gullible” as threshold, then, at minimum, 50% of the human population is non-sapient. I do agree with you that it is very difficult to tell the difference, but I think so even for people I share language with; I wanted to use social media but I got such migrane from all idiocy that I couldn’t even stand it long enough to make an account.

    Just a note in passing: Should Ruddock trigger his laser and NOT cause Aitana to bounce two hundred meters out of range, that will prove she isn’t wearing even part of her armor on this trip. Word to the wise, and all that.
