Once the Delta Trianguli system represented the farthest reaches of humanity into the heavens, and it remained isolated in a sort of pocket rift, no jump one or two systems nearby, and only three jump three systems. In the last twenty years, higher TL 14 and 15 drives have placed Delta Trianguli more on the beaten path, and its once isolation is fading.

Jumping into system, three days pass to the outside universe, where it is now near the end of April, Steel Dust, recommends we head to Stoketown Planetoid Station, part of the Reval group, among many other space habitats orbiting Vijaya in what is called the golden second, one light second out from Vijaya.

"These guys seem like sticklers. .. Let's tread carefully here." Theta warned when the ship secured from jump.. "This place might be a good spot to trade.. A once-isolated system needs about everything..."

"Yes, Brother, we must be careful to obey all the regulations here, it a place to make friends of whom we can ask favours."

Zhenya brings up the familiar comms configuration on the console and scrolls through the list of transmitting vessels and stations, trying to build a general picture of the types of ship populating the system, and looking for Imperial signatures.

"Steel Dust, are there any IN or Scout vessels present?"

"Vijayan authorities have been known to take bribes before." Steel Dust intones, "308 vehicle contacts within sensor perimeter, most are not transmitting transponder codes beyond location coordinates, which after discussion with the traffic control AI, I am transmitting location beacon as well. Presume TC AI has visual identification and radar image for tonnages. Closest ship to our location is a 400 ton subsidized merchant with a Launch pacing it, most likely an in system craft. Visual Identification. No Imperial Navy ships detected, various other ships could be of Imperial registry: probability, high. Scout Corps, probability high, 1000 ton Mach Class Scout Cruiser detected. Imperial Scout Corps Medical Scout detected, 400 tons Hippocrates class."

Much of the traffic is to Vijaya's moons such as Malta, or to the other planet, Pryp'yat.

Kuerzu sighs softly as he watches the ships and local traffic. "Just be careful. We'll offload what we can, get repairs, and be on our way. Perhaps life as a merchant would be the better option." He muses absentmindedly.

*sigh* "We must update your AdBlocker Steel Dust."

OOC: Reval Highport obviously paid for an exception :) Nice images, looks like we'll have to dress well here, no jumpsuits or armour.

"Reval is TC for Vijaya, a tidy position they have for themselves, being neutral, no single state is comfortable with the others in control of the tether (space elevator). It does look even more expensive than it was before, and I am in communication with Reval, station AI at least, seems they are, they want Cr5,000 to dock, mind that might be a fee to shoo away the riff raff, being a battle scarred old republic warship doesn't really fit the image they are trying to maintain. This must be their peace dividend, the RDV and NVE are in debt from the war, sympathy for the devil indeed. Luckily there are other minor stations of varying allegiances, the ones registering to the Diamond Thunderbolt Vajra are the most lax, you can take a shuttle from one of them to Reval; use all your well learned policies, and all that." Steel Dust states in a less formal tone.
