Assuming that Kalos is sending off the cargo listings as Captain Rhodes requested, is there anything else that needs to be done aboard ship before we can skip forward a couple of days and have the Fortunate Son within conversation distance of Devonia?

Nah, it's not gonna be a problem... okay actually yes it is LET ME IN!!!

Only find out what Verchanski's business might be able to provide as a source of cargo/brokerage house/adventures/patronage/etc..

No problem at all, Alfred has been tracking Gayne while outside, and opens the airlock to let him in as soon as requested by comm.

He tells Hampton a bit about his business - mostly import/export broker, and he would be happy to represent the Fortunate Son. No, he doesn't have any particular ideas about current cargo, as he has been away for several months and needs to get back to his office to check his expert-system.

He also frequently acts as middleman in putting together deals for new products, finding parts suppliers and packagers and so forth. He is authorized to represent several manufacturers of different types, so can usually find someone to make whatever needs to be made.

Verchanski whips out his datapad and offers a contract for e-signing if Hampton wants to authorize him to act as broker for the Fortunate Son's cargo - but Hampton notes that the fee is high and structured so that he gets paid even if he doesn't make the sale, plus there is already Kalos on board to act as broker at no extra charge above his regular salary.

Which reminds him (Hampton), that he had a voice message from Kalos, something about some deals he spotted in the info pkg from Devonia...
Did Hampton have more questions for Verchanski after that?

Hampton already listened to Kalos's voice message and told Kalos to go ahead and list the cargo for sale.

I'm going to say a talking cat made me go out there in the first place.

Default Fortunate Son (shiptime 1930, 2013-08-12)

[OOC: Hearing nothing further, let's fast-forward to ship's approach to Devonia. We're picking up again 30 light-seconds out from Devonia; if someone not on pain meds wants to do the math to figure out the time (constant acceleration course at 3 G, now on deceleration phase) let me know, otherwise I'm just guesstimating at 1.25 hours left to reach orbit.]

The Fortunate Son makes the trip to Devonia with no problems. Here is what happens along the way:

With no other traffic insystem, the ship is not required to keep the Bridge manned until it is within one light-minute of populated area.

Kalos sends in the cargo information for the public sale listings.

Max and Henry, with the help of crew volunteers, keep an eye on the maneuver drive all the way - a few more indicators turn yellow, but nothing actually malfs.

Max manages some fresh baked goods a couple times each day; it keeps up his morale by helping him relax in between drive room shifts, and keeps up crew morale by providing something to munch on with coffee. Janna fixes one meal per day for crew, and also feeds the passengers; other than that, food for the crew is self-serve.

Near the end of the trip, the ship receives a call from traffic control advising of another ship exiting jump and proceeding to scoop at Peytonia. You are also receiving the other ship's transponder, which identifies it as Danny Krovitz, type A2 Far Trader registered out of Zhemi, Captain Horris Vashnakoviir commanding.

As Fortunate Son gets closer to Devonia, it starts receiving automated adverts for various ship services, restaurants, hotels, bars, etc from Devonia City; SOP would be to let Alfred filter these out, recording the adverts for later viewing if anyone is interested.

Now Fortunate Son is 30 light-seconds (abt 9 million km) out from Devonia, with about 6.75 hours remaining to orbit.

Kalos is on the Bridge when traffic control calls to ask whether Fortunate Son intends to orbit (in which case orbit parameters will be assigned) or land at the port (in which case approach instructions will follow).

Assuming that you intend to land, approach instructions are provided and Fortunate Son is assigned a pad near the port office. Port regulations require all crew and passengers to remain on the ship until cleared by customs.

Anybody want to do anything before you land at the port?



EDIT: According to Fritz, 30 light-seconds out is still 6 hours, 48 minutes of decel to orbit. I'm editing shiptime accordingly; you are 30 light-seconds out and still have 6 hours 48 min to Devonia.

Cool Donoma

[OOC: it appears to be about four times that: 6 hours, 48 minutes. Two light seconds out (600,000km) will get you about 1 hour, 45 minutes remaining.]

Donoma's data system alerts her when the ship has a berthing assignment. She showers, dresses (pants, light blouse - nothing fancy, but as close to workaday clothing without wearing ship's coveralls as possible), and drives out to the port, where she takes up a position where she can observe the landing, and the crew in post-landing activities.

(Donoma's system has also alerted her to the arrival in-system of the Danny Krovitz.)

[OOC: Does Donoma know anything about the Danny Krovitz? She's a bit of a ways out, but not too far from Mary Deare's homeport.]

No.

"I appreciate your time Mr. Verchanski, and we might do business in the future but right now I need to attend to some matters before we land - customs and all that red tape. I'll be in touch, though, after we're on the ground."

Hampton leaves and heads to the bridge to take the controls until we make orbit to give Kalos times to rest and eat before landing. Hampton will land the ship once he gets clearance on approach from Traffic.

(OOC - SOP will be that, so long as he is conscious, alert, and breathing Kalos will pilot the ship during routine operations. Landings, take-offs, scoops, and anything out of the ordinary will be Hampton's job.)
