At Gamma Leporis QUASAR bid 4 HTs and bought 12 Alloys and a dealership. GATES-LEARJET's bid of 1 was ignored and GAMLEPCO bought 4 at 3 HTs each plus a further 5 on contract using their Market Manager Position.

GAMLEPCO sold 4 Isotopes for 10 HTs each at Epsilon Eridani.

GAMLEPCO were also active at Tau Ceti, landing a cargo of Alloys and selling 9 of them at 7 HTs apiece to gain a Dealership.

Mu Herculis saw MONOGRAM and GATES-LEARJET selling Monopoles and Isotopes respectively on Contract.

GATES-LEARJET were buying Isotopes at Sigma Draconis, taking 12 units at 7 HTs and gaining a Contractorship.

And at Beta Hydri, ARCHANGEL LINES were selling 4 Spice for 14 HTs each.

GATES-LEARJET  spent money improving their Reputation, part of which came back in their end of Quarter bonus.

MONOGRAM INDUSTRIES launched their ship, named the Zamfir, and also spent money to lift the Corporation's standing.

QUASAR ENTERPRISES improved their standing and went to the financiers for a 500 HT loan over four Quarters. With this funding they laid down two Monarch Hulls with a mixture of Cargo and Light Weapons pods, one at the Tau Ceti Yards and the other at Epsilon Eridani. Both ships have A class crew.

GAMLEPCO bought a Warehouse at Tau Ceti and laid down a ship of their own, a Phoenix Hull, also at the Tau Ceti yards.

ARCHANGEL LINES took Passengers to Beta Hydri and elsewhere and spent money improving their Reputation and their Business connections. They laid down a Phoenix Hull, Raphael, with Passenger, Light Weapons and a single Cargo pod plus A class crew at Tau Ceti, whose yards will now be quite busy.

The ASSOCIATION OF INTERSTELLAR ANARCHISTS got their ships together on Mu Herculis. Having spent judiciously on Initiative, they took advantage of OP 21 to buy a Battle Comm pod and a Hunter pod for the Needle, leaving Cargo pods on the surface. Or so it is said. Certainly their funds are depleted.
