So is Petey switching to a no-annie-plant strategy now?

That ... would be very, very costly. The only way to win the war against the Panuri is to lose the war against everyone else.

(Title was an attempt to make fun of the costume designer from Incredibles. Did it work?)

Para and Petey need to have some dialog together. Just because.

Perhaps no annie plants on predictable trajectories or near collateral?
Random walking would help if there is any lag in the targeting, but a miss is still unhealthy for your environment.

For crying out loud, Petey, just tell him that the problem is the enemy is targeting annie plants, and you can avoid this whole argument!

Yeah, Howard's been engaging in this style of nonsense more and more lately. It's wearisome.

Probably the best way to explain is the way Ennesby did it back in the day:
Remember the exploding pants?

Presumably Petey feels he has the time to talk things out. If he felt they were in danger of being targeted right that moment he probably would have teraported them right of their armor. This way he can let Tagon get his indignation out of his system. After all Tagon is going to have an even harder time selling this to his troops so he needs to be thoroughly convinced.

Just imagine how Schlock is going to react.

Honestly, I'm disappointed in Petey. Tagon explained the situation in under 15 words.

He said no weapons either. The Toughs have small arms that don't use annie plants, so it can't be exclusively about annie plants. It strikes me as likely Petey is offering refuge in a place where only his remotes are allowed to have weapons.

And here he goes stripping Schlock of his gun. The "no annies" was a logical step, that's just an idiot plot.

You should sell Tagon ships, and take out generous insurance policies on both his ship and any battleplates in the area until the premiums go up a few orders of magnitude.

And that's why Petey took his time explaining. He knew if he could convince Tagon first he'd be able to proceed with the actual evacuation in no time at all.
