The demand from the Orion sector led to price rises in Monopoles and, to a lesser extent, in Isotopes but many Corporations were repaying their loans.

PETROLEUM AND OTHER COLONIAL GOODS worked hard this Quarter accumulating HectoTrans. Thus, they were able to go to the bankers and are now debt free without disposing of any productive asset.

SIRIUS CYBER actually managed to beat TRADIAETH A MASNACHWYR TEGWEN to take full loads of Passengers - possibly a surprise to both parties.

COSTA NOSTRA COFFEE INC. sold two Monopole Factories at Mu Herculis and received welcome kind donations as suggested from three of the Corporations jumping to Mu Herculis. The exception was TRADIAETH A MASNACHWYR TEGWEN whose ship still went by the armed ship in System Space undisturbed.

TRADIAETH A MASNACHWYR TEGWEN jumped in and took OP 5, loading Furs at Mu Herculis. Their Passenger income from the 11-strong fleet meant they were finally able to pay off their loan and are also debt free. They even improved their reputation, though not by much.

AMALGAMATED INDUSTRIAL METALS managed to pay off their loan as well after the quarter's trading and issued an up-beat statement.

MINING & MORE were quite quiet this quarter, though their Factories continued to produce.

HARRIMAN ENTERPRISES were busy and finished this Quarter by laying down a Corco Iota hull at Tau Ceti Shipyards.

HAPPY FEATURES also had plans, buying a further three Isotope Factories at Sigma Draconis, and re-equipped the Wanderlust, which is now all cargo pod equipped.

In trading, HARRIMAN ENTERPRISES bought 6 Alloys for 2 HTs each.

At Epsilon Eridani, HARRIMAN ENTERPRISES bought 6 Petroleum for 9 HTs each and gained a Dealer's position

SIRIUS CYBER bought 6 Petroleum at 8 HTs apiece at Delta Pavonis.

Tau Ceti saw PETROLEUM AND OTHER COLONIAL GOODS buying 10 Isotopes for 4 HTs each, taking a Dealership, but there were still 4 units for COSTA NOSTRA to pick up. HARRIMAN ENTERPRISES bought on Contract. PETROLEUM AND OTHER COLONIAL GOODS weren't finished, selling 10 Petroleum for 10 HTs each and gaining a second Dealership

HARRIMAN ENTERPRISES sold 5 Alloys for 11 HTs each at Mu Herculis. However, their bid of 11 to sell Isotopes was undercut as PETROLEUM AND OTHER COLONIAL GOODS sold 10 at the price of 10 HTs to gain a Contractor's position. AMALGAMATED INTERSTELLAR METALS sold 5 Isotopes on Contract. HARRIMAN ENTERPRISES did sell Petroleum on Contract, however.

At Sigma Draconis HARRIMAN ENTERPRISES sold 1 Petroleum for 13 HTs as PETROLEUM AND OTHER COLONIAL GOODS sold on Contract. AMALGAMATED INTERSTELLAR METALS bought Isotopes on contract after HARRIMAN ENTERPRISES had bought 7 Isotopes for 5 HTs each and taken a Contractor's position.

AIM sold 9 Alloys for 11 HTs each and gained a Dealer's place at Alpha Centauri. They then sold 3 Isotopes for 8 HTs each.

Beta Hydri saw COSTA NOSTRA selling 7 Alloys for 10 HTs each, acquiring a Dealership. HARRIMAN ENTERPRISES sold 6 Isotopes for 12 HTs each and a similar reward, after which PETROLEUM AND OTHER COLONIAL GOODS sold 9 Monopoles for 18 HTs apiece and also gained a Dealership. POCG sold 6 Spice for 15 HTs apiece and another Dealership and, finally, sold Petroleum on contract.


AIM is proud to support Innovation in coffee making, no matter what the cost.

GM Notes

Remember emergency hyperjump does NOT operate in this game.

Questions, ask me; clever ideas, run them past me first.
