Correct: "Five chains away, the blade of the azoth wrecked a fusion generator, and the soldier whose heart it had been died." (LS3, 9) But, but . . . that's just another good reason to shoot those fool engineers who designed them! If chems were subject to exploding and raining radioactive material all around when they died, then they were a hazard to every bio around them, including their fellow human troopers. Dumb. But then, Typhon didn't care about people, did he? -Roy --
