Kuerzu nods and makes his way to the cargo hold. "We're not tossing those machine parts. We can sell them piece meal if we have to. There's too much money there to just...dump it into a star. And besides, it's not like they're going to stop hunting us if we dump it anyway." He comments as he helps Zhenya move boxes.

"Yes, the machine parts are too valuable to dump, and I may be able to produce papers for them anyway. The mail and luggage though, they can only be evidence of our presence on the Distant Horizon. Sending them down the gravity well to be eaten by the Giant is our best option for the bulk of those."

Kuerzu perks up at her words. "Are we talking about the same machine parts?" He asks, unsure if there were more that he was unaware of.

Anyone searching the the items should roll 2d6 twice, once for personal effects, once for the mail.

Another thing is to plan just how the containers will be disposed of, having a container hit the ship at 26,000 m/s after just being pushed from the cargo hatch is unhealthy for it.

Minimum distance to the closest gas giant is 3.15 AU or 471,233,293.65 km; real time it's closer to 600 million km, which will take approximately 61 hours at 5G's, and 42 tons of fuel. There is time to sleep, plan, or whatever.

Laughing at the misunderstanding: "I mean the machine parts themselves, not the ballast that makes up the weight. That stuff, perhaps we cannot sell. I hope we can barter it, but perhaps we ought to bury it somewhere. If we do not have it aboard with us we can trade it's location for some advantage."

Zhenya and Chaco find not much of real value, clothes, shoes, a hair dryer, in the personal effects, luggage, from the liner. Might make a good rummage sale, unexciting though. Elton finds an envelope with 2,000Cr, probably someone's spare cash. Sorting the mail takes a longer time, it is all almost useless, wedding invitations, insurance claims, things like that, though Elton finds at least on bit of useful info, where the Reval Starport on Vijaya is referred to "as the way old Switzerland was." Meaning?
