"Take us in then Leon."

Zhenya contacts the 'Port again, requesting permission to dock.

Taking it in, as Ojo Rojo is approached, an advertisement for "Red Eye Fueling Service" is transmitted to the ship. Landing will increase the amount of fuel used over station keeping, around 15 tons, so far around 20 tons will have been used once lift off from Ojo Rojo; assuming the Czernobog ever leaves ...

The Starport is little more than a cleared patch of bedrock with a cluster of buildings to the south end, where then a tramline runs a few kilometers south to Corinth proper, a town of around 2,000. The refinery is near the coast, a few km away from Corinth, it has its own landing field for its shuttles. Corinth itself is a cluster of white domes, as the town protects itself from dangerous flares of the primary star.

The Czerni is cleared for landing and directed to a patch of bedrock away from any others.

We might as well top up the tanks while we are here. At least it is only a small amount.

"We had better see the lie of the land. Who wants to come with me?"

Zhenya connects to the local datanet to look for maps, facilities, and transport.

We are claiming to be undertaking repairs, a spare parts dealer seems a good place to start. Always useful to have extra widgets lying around.

The area is largely desert, scoured by the energetic flares of the star. ATV type trucks are for rent, both electric and hydrogen fuel cell, at the cost of 50Cr a day. The refinery can run a truck to the starport, though they would rather do the orbital refueling, as it is easier for them, rather than making a special trip. Landing fee is 100Cr for the week. Around the starport landing field, there are a few bunker like buildings, a parts house, warehouses for freight, and a combination diner-bar. The tram south to Corinth proper is free, running when needed, automatic cars link up to form trains.

Zhenya smiles ruefully: "Ach, perhaps it is best I go alone. The fewer of us the locals see the better if we are going to send'passengers' to the Empress. Chaco can drive me, we will be fine. The law on weapons is lax here, but I doubt I will encounter crime. I see no reason to visit the town, and it is bad business to harass visiting crews at the 'Port. I will buy parts, enquire about cargo, return."

Zhenya rents an ATV and, dressed plainly as a befits an unremarkable Free Trader spacer, joins Chaco to tour the facilities. Despite the confident talk about not expecting trouble Zhenya, as habit, conceals a couple of daggers, hides a Body Pistol in the false-back of the attache case, and pockets a Taser.

[ooc] Waiting to see what everyone else is up to. Zhenya has a good record for going off on her own, this place could be full of Imperial agents.

The rental company delivers a worn, but clean ATV, the delivery driver being picked up in a car, that drives off. As Chaco drives over to the parts and warehouses, Zhenya can check an app on her comm, for a cargo:

30% off a cargo of polymers! 17 tons for 83,300Cr; was 119,000Cr!

Polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) is a polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA), a polymer belonging to the polyesters class that are of interest as bio-derived and biodegradable plastics.

In dry granulates, packaged in 1 m^3 barrels, 238 in all.

A thin dust blows in the breeze. The star at M4V is not what one would consider bright at all, black lichen, is the rare except only real land organism here. The buildings are dusky rose color, the interiors seem dark, a bit foreboding, without windows; protection against flares, even though an alarm would sound for those to take cover.

OOC: I guess Elton is coming along, as that was his last action, unless he posts taking up Zhenya's offered "out" - which was passive-aggressive colour text really ;) .

Of course if he does stay home there's still Chaco..

Taking up his snub gun and making sure he has some credits (about a 1000) Leon would have also gone along with Zhenya and Elton.

OOC: if not Leon would have remained on the Star
