    "A Hunter pod?"
    "Yes please."
The Trader lifted his head. "Sure? Nothing more?"
    "Yes, that's all we want."

At Gamma Leporis AVERY & SONS bought 8 Alloys for 3 HTs each and gained a Contractorship.

Epsilon Eridani was quiet

At Tau Ceti, apparently forgetting the absence of a Warehouse, AVERY & SONS bought 10 Isotopes for 2 HTs, gained a Dealership and lost the Isotopes again.

SAILCAT sold 4 Alloys for 8 HTs each at Mu Herculis and then sold 6 Isotopes at the same price. After this THE 7 CORPORATION sold 5 on Contracts. AVERY & SONS bought 12 Monopoles for 12 HTs apiece and took their second Contractorship this Quarter.

THE 7 CORPORATION bought 7 Isotopes for 5 HTs each at Sigma Draconis, gaining a Contractorship, and also bought 5 Spice on Contracts.

Beta Hydri saw MARATHON MANIACS selling 6 Alloys at 8 HTs apiece - gaining a Dealership - and SWISS MERCENARY FLEET selling 10 Isotopes for 7 HTs each and a Dealership too. Then COSTA NOSTRA PIZZA sold 6 Monopoles at 16 apiece, winning a Contractorship, and THE 7 CORPORATION sold 5 on Contract to complete the quarter's trade.

AVERY AND SONS sold their ship, Mawnan, for 90% of list price at Mu Herculis and increased their Political Connections.

SAILCAT sold the Furs at Beta Hydri.

THE 7 CORPORATION laid down a Corco Zeta Hull with A class crew at the Epsilon Eridani shipyards and added Cargo and Augmented Jump pods. The ship is to be named Slave.

MARATHON MANIACS loaded Passengers for Sigma Draconis and bought two Warehouses, one each at Gamma Leporis and Sigma Draconis

SWISS MERCENARY FLEET laid down a new Piccolo Hull in the Tau Ceti shipyards

COSTA NOSTRA PIZZA loaded passengers for Epsilon Eridani and then trudged down to the Federation bankers and repaid their loan. They also landed a ship on Planet at Epsilon Eridani and loaded a Hunter Pod, which will limit the Spaceports it can enter.
