"Did you see that ship? It was a Morgan 2-26, a new kind of battleship made with cutting edge technology."
"Yes, I noticed that. Did you know Mega Dark, our greatest enemy loves those?"
"Oh, really? I wonder if he's on this one. If he is, that would be bad."
Note: There's no drama here. The nightly news has more tension and suspense than this kind of dialogue.
"The Morgan 2-26 is upon us, Captain."
"No! You swore that couldn't happen, that such technology was beyond their grasp!"
"Our agents assured me this could not be."
"I was a fool for buying into your false sense of security."
"We suspect Mega Dark is on it."
"Then we all die here."
Note: There is more suspense, tension, drama, and conflict here. The same information is shared but it is shared as part of the storytelling.
It's better yet when not all information is on the surface, when much of the meaning is shared through texts and subtexts, through suggestions and hints. There can still be a lot of drama and tension but with fewer words. The reader feels clever when he/she is able to feel what's under the surface and make the connections for themselves. It also means more and is more memorable.
Better example still:
"What is it?"
"The Morgan 2-26, Captain."
"No! It can't be his ship."
"We're readying the cannons."
"For all the good they'll do."
More is suggested here than is said. When everything is on the surface, it can be dull and uninteresting. The more meaning your story suggests rather than spells out, the more powerful your story for the reader.
