The Misplaced Battleship - Harry Harrison

This quote was added by malevolarky
This planet seems to have no possible motive or use for a battleship. But they are building one - that I will swear on a stack of one thousand credit notes as high as this building. Yet what will they do with it when they have it built? They have an expanding culture, no unemployment, a surplus of heavy metals and ready markets for all they produce. No hereditary enemies, feuds or the like. If it wasn't for this battleship thing, I would call them an ideal League planet.
