"If anyone has any interest in checking out the starport or planet, or doing a bit of shopping, just let me know," Luise announced. "I'm thinking, though, that we should employ the buddy system when leaving the ship."

"There might be Arden spies or sympathizers or advocates or even Fifth Columnists on planet. I'm sure word of our little exploit will be buzzing around the starport by the time we land."

"So, everyone... stay alert."

Harry made his way back to the bridge to stand watch.

The ship continues to head inward towards the planet. While there aren't any space fireworks welcoming the crew, the ship does get priority clearance, though, considering the space traffic (or lack of), that's not such a big deal.

An inbound vector is transmitted to the ship, Gahler sets course and within an hour, the ship lands at the downport.

"If anyone needs a bodyguard, let me know." Forge said, still in armor from the warm reception the vessel received.

"Stand by to protect the ship Forge, with Arden attacking us as we entered space here, there may be fifth columnists waiting to disrupt the starport. We need to be on alert while we are here."

"Yeah, we opened a can of worms with those shields," Steve chimes in.

"The only reason we were attacked is because we came out of jump in the middle of the battle, and we only did that because we didn't come in on a standard jump route."

"On the one hand, I find it strange that we weren't told about the shields. Then again, it's possible that the previous owner didn't know about them either. After all, how many times did his restaurant get shot at by a spaceship?"

"Hehehehehehehehehe, never! I'm sure he didn't know it either or the price wouldn't have been right. He just missed us, we don't have shields, just remember that."

"You can repeat that theory all you want, Harry," Luise says, "and you might eventually believe it yourself, but I'm pretty sure the battle was captured on video by the other ships."

"At the very least, it might confuse the issue a bit. Half the people won't believe it anyway."

"However, you all have permission to sign autographs, especially Harry, since he's the one that shot the enemy ship."

"Steve, would you mind seeing that we get the proper refueling and service? We'll pick up some hooch for you."

"Well, it turns out that they've never heard of me or my music on this dirtball!" Siyeon announced as she prepared to disembark. "I'm going to go enlighten them!"

"And maybe see what is fashionable here. A girl can always use a new pair of shoes. After all, I don't have anything that goes with space combat!"


She strides out the airlock with Oen-Kek carrying her equipment.

"Anybody want to join me? Want me to pick up something for anyone?"

Harry tries to arrange for the sell of the cargo and look for more heading to Foreven. Adriannah would be a big help selling the cargo, but she don't seem to be around at the moment. He kept missing on connecting with her.

Adrianbah checked the operating log and noted Harry busy trying to sell their cargo and looking for an onload. 'Oh my, it looks like I'm not good enough trader... such a pitty... ' she thought

Luise makes enquiries about Darrian technical manuals, but nothing is available out here in the boondocks. Half the enquiries are met with blank stares; they've never even heard of the Darrians let alone know anything about them.

The hope was that a tramp freighter might have something, but, again, too far off the beaten path.

Luise has Roland buy the collapsible fuel tanks. He buys both external drop tanks and internal collapsible ones. The externals are to keep from taking up too much cargo space. One tank holds enough fuel for Jump-1, so two tanks will give you Jump-2 capabilities. The idea with the drop tanks is that once they are empty, you can just drop them in space.

Luise decides to stay in port for only two days. So if anyone has a pressing need/desire to stay in a hotel room for one night, that's fine.

Siyeon Lee and Oen-kek decide to leave the ship. Siyeon was suddenly inspired by this new fan base that wasn't familiar with her or any of her music. Apparently, she talked Oen-kek into being her stage manager/bodyguard.

Luise decides to go ahead and take all the cargo that's available, plus the mail. She arranges for it to get delivered to the ship and loaded into the cargo bay. That still leaves plenty of room for the collapsible fuel tanks.

She's still debating on whether to fill the drop tanks off here or not.

"One day? That's barely enough time to wet my whistle!" Steve grouses a bit at Luise's announcement.

"If that was meant as a challenge, then I accept!"

"For the next 24 hours, I'm going to hit every bar, pub and tavern in the starport! If it serves an inebriating beverage, I'll find it!"

"Anyone with me?"

"I'll stay on watch so the others can have liberty." he informs Luise. "Pick me up a case of brandy!"

Harry arranges for delivery and installation of the drop tanks Luise gets, they were going to need plenty of fuel to get in the long jumps to Foreven. The cargo would pay for the trip so there was no debt.

"I'll go along Steve! We'll get good and soused and yes Harry, I'll pick up the brandy, as long as you pay for it now." he says with a wink.

Harry hands over his Credit Card, knowing more than the brandy would be included in the price.

Gahler checked the local net to see if he could arrange some Terran Chinese food delivery to the ship.  He'd been craving it for a bit.
