HOW TO ACHIEVE DOMINANCE
A new kind of question for the mighty felinoid warriors from the planet Kzin. After several ignominious defeats at the hands of the suspiciously furless anthropoids from Earth, at least one Kzin commander thinks he's got the answer: learn from the monkeys, strive to overcome Kzinti hypercompetitiveness - cooperate to destroy. And it's working.
But the humans have millennia of experience dealing with cooperative enemies, and what is perceived as strength can sometimes be manipulated into a tragic flaw. Here's what can happen when one's rivals cooperate against one...
