Steel Dust doesn't know exactly of what explosives are on board, as that is the purview of Calson, and of Zhenya; there are the missiles, with even some warheads removed to fly the containers down into the gas giant. Most of the heavier containers would be somewhat shielded against radiation, due to safety from the cosmic background; the containers for foodstuff would work the best.

Kuerzu takes a moment to listen to the message, listening a second time before smiling a wicked smile. "There will be blood." He mutters to himself before turning to Leon. "There will be a plan, but for now, take inventory. Weapons, armor, and credits." He says before moving to the cockpit. "Steel Dust, Can you get me an accurate sophont count of the location? I want to know everything that thinks and breathes, as well as defenses. Zhenya mentioned a contact, I want a list of everyone she's talked to since arrival, and who she was going to see." He thinks another moment before nodding. "You think scanners could penetrate a food container? I'd like to get a couple of those warheads past security." He says with his evil grin. "We know it's a trap, so what do we do? Spring the trap."

Kuerzu should roll 2d6 to see if Steel Dust can sift through Zhenya's contacts to find who she is talking about.

After listing the various people Zhenya had contact with, such as Beckett's, in the upper levels in Stoketown, on Reval, she had appointments with Akinya Factors, and Ganesh Trading; it continues with the info it has on Qiangdao:

Starport B
Pop: 200-300,000
Elevation: 2120 m
Temp: 72°C


"It is an independent smuggler's roost, defenses are undetermined, missiles and laser air defenses probable. Any large scale air or planetary combat would draw attention from either the Northern Empire, or the Representative Democracy, likely both. The NVE and RDV keep Qiangdao as a way to listen in to each other, one or another moving in on it, could be a casus belli to the other."

After collating some data: "Food containers, such as the foodstuff here, might be used to smuggle weapons or other things, with the food inside also used as camouflage, there would be a chance of detection."

Calson runs an equipment check with Leon, personal and ships locker, turning to Leon with a slightly manic grin. "Can't wait to see the look on their faces when they realise they've fracked with the wrong people"

Leon gives a rough inventory of weapons and hardware which includes

1 x breaching charge (Calson) a couple of HE hand grenade, some anti-laser aerosol grenades (left over from Tsunami. Calson also has some frag grenades as well. Not checked up on Steel Dawn stock or Zhenya's quarters.

Leon has 50,000 credits of his own private stash to put into he war chest if required. He voices his idea of a plan, "we should get local knowledge of the area of the meet/exchange, perhaps even hire on some mercs to act as a distraction or extra muscle, we fill the food containers with weapons flash bangs,perhaps make it into a bomb. Also I have another thought, when we were on the space station, there were two miners fighting, out of no-where came those security bots, they just grabbed them and flew them away. Perhaps we could get something like that to grab Zhenya before the killing starts?" Leon pauses to gauge the others reactions or see if there is any other ideas or way to improve the plan.

As a side line Leon will try out Zhenya dating app contacting system (which he has seen her use on past missions)to see if there are any leads there, its a long shot but may prove worthwhile.

For Leon, this is the equipment bought on Sameen: https://dragonersdomain.com/forum/viewt ... =11#p13361

Kuerzu, from Zhenya's cryptic statement, she could have either meant, other former colonial people, such as Craig on Sameen, or she could mean the legitimate Imperial Navy.

Theta goes rapidly to his meditation chamber/arsenal and gets kitted out in armor and weaponry, whistling to himself...

Leon doesn't find a "Zhenya", but there is a new sign-up by "Evgenia K" at the right time, with a picture that is probably Zhenya some years ago. The public profile shows a preference for "slim, fit, wealthy, discrete, loyal and war-veteran". An exchange with a Vargr called Alph includes the phrase "you certainly tick the loyal soldier boxes, but are you thin, rich, hard? ;) "

Just before heading to the galley Leon will post a message on Zhenyas app to see if he can make any contacts. For the meeting he is keen to get a plan up and running.
