[[Socrates begins to explain to everyone on the bridge (as well as the Grand Protuberance via the comm channel) exactly what the "clean" Physaric ships are doing to the "renegades".]]

Socrates: That said, if that excretion can be directed, the sticky bile will cling to whatever it hits. It would take hours of scouring against asteroids to remove it.
