Trading was again limited this Quarter as ROCKET TRADERS bought 9 Isotopes for 4 HTs each at Tau Ceti and were rewarded with a Dealership. TREKBOER, having bought Monopoles last turn, profited by selling 13 of them at Beta Hydri for 17 HTs each and also gained a Dealership. Other Corporations received goods from their factories.

ROCKET TRADERS loaded Passengers for Mu Herculis, and bought two Spice Factories at Sigma Draconis as the price fell there. Reputation received a solid boost as well. Its three new ships were launched too at Tau Ceti.

Whatever it was had happened the previous Quarter at Mu Herculis at COSTA NOSTRA COFFEE INC, berths had not been sorted out because a shattering explosion saw the Piccolo Hull in pieces across its berth and neighbouring docksides. An investigation found CNCI were to blame and their Reputation obviously took a battering.

MADNESS & MAYHEM also suffered damage at Mu Herculis in a separate explosion and ended up with a ship with no cargo pods. Their New Corco Iota Hull was rolled out with top class crew and three each of Cargo and Light Weapon pods.

SOLAR SPICE & LIQUORS launched their three new ships, and gained a very substantial Reputation boost at the News.

TREKBOER increased their Political Connections, bought a Warehouse at Beta Hydri, and yet their Reputation only received a minimal boost as speculation was rampant about its involvement in the explosions at Mu Herculis.
