Stimulus (Response) (radios appear)

Consider the benefits of a generation-spanning plan to occupy the mothballed starshipyard, reactivate it, and construct a starship large enough -- seven miles long and three miles in diameter -- to accommodate the entire population of the Caroline Republic. Setting aside the putative goal of allowing the dwindling remnants of humanity to abandon an exhausted, devitalised planet and past, there is stimulus spending to rejuvenate a moribund economy! Urban renewal! The sense of unifying endeavour that our nation has lacked for so long! A military leader-turned-politician promoting the scheme!

OK, the possibility exists that the whole plan was devised by the enemies of humankind -- posing as General Toriman, as the ghost of Miolnor IV and as Coral the People's leader -- to trick the residual population into genocidal warfare and starship-related self-immolation. But given the prospect of tax breaks for corporations, I think it is a risk we cannot afford not to take.

They were much better before they sold out and were called "Jefferson Lords of the Starship."

I'm sorry, sirs, but you may not park your starship on our fiscal cliff unless you feed the meter.

Excuse me, sir, but I have a small question.

Why does their starship have wings and a vertical stabilizer? Was it perhaps designed by zombies?

Government infrastructure project, mikey. Pump-priming. Also, Pentagon budget.
