    Re: Hunting down canon chapters for the 1,000 chapters project.

    Can you dig up a quote
    ->

    'Moma Parsheen, I wish you to send a message to the Imperial Ravager Space Marines' headquarters, orbiting Vindict V.'
    That fortress-monastery was the nearest roost of ultimate warriors capable of obliterating a world. Jaq already had his fatal signal
    concisely formulated: Ego, Draco Ordinis Mallei Inquisitor, per auctoritate Digamma Decimatio Duodecies, ultimum
    exterminatum planetae Stalinvastae cum extrema celeritate impero.
    Ian Watson - Draco (re-released version) - beginning of chapter eight

    Time passed faster in the warp than in the real universe, but was also inconstant, unpredictable. Moma Parsheen had sent the
    exterminatus signal just over a week earlier. The Ravagers might already have sailed towards their jump zone, or be on the point
    of sailing. Once in the warp, how quickly would they arrive in the vicinity of Stalinvast?
    see above - end of chapter eight

    Interestingly in the original version the first quote is slightly different:
    "Moma Parsheen, I wish you to send a message to Imperial Ravager Marine Sub-headquarters orbiting Vindict V."
    That fortress-monastery was the nearest roost of ultimate warriors capable of obliterating a world. Jaq already had his fatal signal concisely formulated: Ego, Draco Ordinis Mallei Inquisitor, per auctoritate Digamma Decimatio Duodecies, ultimum exterminatun planetae Stalinvastae cum extrema celeritate impero.
