"Want to know what makes the Lyrans a scary bunch, especially their navy, Trumbull?"  Devlin asked.

"What, Sir?"

"It's not the nukes." Stone explained, "It's their exacting precision.  They have the Rasalhague Dominion locked down with one fleet. Yet still had units left that could hit twenty targets in Republic space-without more than a handful of civilian casualties...In relative terms. Smashed our yards at New Earth and did so hitting only key facilities. They actually didn't hit, or even damage, the habitat modules, housing areas, or hospital.  Same for Titan, Luna, Mars...bang bang bang, it's that precision that scares anyone who's rational."

He swirled scotch in a glass, and downed it, "The Blakists couldn't match it with forty years of preparation with moles, turned operatives, and access to everyone's communications.  There's the precision and there's also the fact they know how to stop."

"Yes sir."
