"Ah, the very, ragged edge of speculation."

"A proposition I just may leap at, given a guardian such as yourself watching over."

"You will be watching over?"

You almost can hear the weapons system chuckle.

"So, these Voodgi you spoke of, and their desire for freedom..."

"You seem to imply that they are under an oppressor's heel, and that you're here to free them, according to His Majesty's will."

"The idea of an exclusive trading opportunity is interesting, but I don't want to endanger the Amycus Ghost in an armed conflict."

*Ima waves his hand, indicating the ship*

"Perhaps I should send my ship off, grab my kit, and join you? Trading has been tedious lately."

"The Abonai Safety League is occupying this system without the Voodgi permission. Further, the League is warehousing their politically unreliables on the Voodgi homeworld. Rumor has it that the Abonai Belt, home of the League, is near to violent governmental change due to the occupation of the Voodgi world. We mean to give the League a little nudge toward regime change. That nudge is to assist the Voodgi with causing the oppressors to withdraw.

We are not in a shooting phase yet, and hope to accomplish our goals with fifth columnist operations and psyops and so avoid such things. As a simple Royal Marine Weapons System however, we must prepare for such things. Sometimes a small, powerful amount of rapidity and violence will avoid a shooting war and such packages of rapidity and violence takes forethought and preparation.

We would like to use you and your ship in recon, insertion, or recovery operations to support those efforts, so risk to your vessel would be at a minimum. As a merchant, you have access to the system with less scrutiny than a known Imperial noble. You would be able to see things, do things, that I would not be able to do. Meet people that I cannot due to my title, my notoriety. Under the guise of regular trade you can deliver goods to factions that I have no chance of even exchanging pleasantries with. What say you, will you help?"

"Ooo, trading with a twist of 'trigue! I couldn't contain the alliteration.

And I do believe that a proper surgical nudge would be less messy.

In all fairness, I should discuss it with my crew, but you make it sound no more risky than what we're doing anyway.

Is there someplace you would like the container stored? Unless I partition it in my cargo hold, a military-grade box would be out of place on a merchant ship."

[OOC: I thought the container had been transferred to the Merc Cruiser]

"Please coordinate with the Captain of Fell Swoop to have it transferred to their cargo hold. That is where we are coordinating our efforts."

*radios his 1st Officer to coordinate the transfer to the Fell Swoop using his comm-dot*

"Is there anything else?

It would be nice to know a little more about what is going on and what intelligence would be needed."

"Our last intel is weeks old, so we could use an update. It would be useful if we could land a team to gather the official propaganda and what the rumors are. Of course, such a team would need to land very unofficially so that they may do their work unobtrusively. Perhaps a normal stop of a free trader into port on a standard mercantile run, depositing a few passengers would be successful. The free trader crew does what free trader crews do in port, just listen more carefully in the recreational establishments and when with the local brokers. The passengers rove around as tourists and business people do, then after a few days "purchase" passages on the free trader to return to the squadron. Does this suit?"

"Sounds like the beginnings of a good premise. My only concern is whether or not it would be accomplished in a week.

Most traders don't hang around for longer than that, unless something comes up unexpectedly, but I think you would know this."

*Ira smiles to lessen the sting*

"A whole week? An entire 7 day? I was hoping for half that. A week will be plenty for broad stroke planning."
