Drake brought the ship into the docking station and landed it in the appropriate area, then powered the ship down. He was surprised, however, at the number of people waiting for him.

”Either someone’s rolling out the red carpet, or the Squibs aren’t as friendly as I’ve heard.”
”Squibs love this kind of stuff, huh?”
”Oh, you don’t know how bad it’s going to be. It didn’t turn out that bad with the imperials, did it? R3, you got the lists?”
“Indeed.”
”Then let’s go greet them.”

***********

Drake came down the ramp to meet the welcoming committee, while R3 went to open the cargo area for unloading. As far as the squibs could tell from looking at him, he wasn’t carrying any obvious weapons.

“Hi there. If you’ll just give me a moment, my droid is dealing with the cargo area, so I’ll have weapons unloaded in just a minute.” He turned to look at the section of the ship with the cargo bay, then turned to face them again.

”He also has the lists you need, so he should be out here shortly.”

100 clone commandos formed a perimeter around the ship, with two dozen droidekas guarding all the exits, and a whole clone commando regiment on call. If these... "intruders" tried anything crazy, they would get a... very warm welcome. After all, this was the "current" capital of the Honorable Union, with over a million soldiers stationed here.

Major Walasta was prepared to hate this intrusion into his "realm of space", but he liked what he saw of this... character. Turning around, he ordered the clone commander, "Lt., send in three squads to search the ship."

Looking back, he told the person standing in front of him, "Major Walasta, sir. Pleased to meet you. So, while the necessary materials are being gathered, mind telling me your name and business?"

”Just please don’t touch anything if you can help it…” He said to the troops as they walked up the ramp. He then turned back to face the person in front of him.

”Name’s Drake IMM-3. Typically my business is bounty hunter, but in this case, it’s completely different. See, right now, just about everything in my cargo bay” He took a moment to look for the right words ”is the stuff that is being prepared, so to speak.”
”You don’t know how to not make yourself sound stupid, do you?”
”I heard you squibs enjoyed…well…various things of various quality, to put it one way…so I took a visit to the Ord Mantel junkyards and scavanged up a whole ship full of stuff that I thought some of you furry guys might be interested in buying or otherwise trading for. The weapons I mentioned earlier included.”

“Well Drake, I’m sure something can be worked out. I know a licensed purchasing agent for the government. Once the search of your vessel is completed, you can come to my office to discuss… matters with him. That is, if you pass the search,” Major Walasta replied with a nasty grin.

After another few minutes, a sergeant came forward.

“Sir, all clear.”

“Excellent. Leave a guard of a dozen men for the ship, while Mr. Drake and I go off to discuss… business.”

“Yes, sir.”

Turning back to Drake, he asked, “So, you game?”

Just a note, Walasta is not a squib. He is a human hired by the Honorable Union. However, the purchasing agent is a squib.

”Yes, I would be very game. My droid has a list of the stuff aboard my ship, if you don’t mind, I’d like to bring him along. You mentioned weapons permits before. Now I’d hate to get on your bad side later, so it would probably be best to let you know that despite my appearances, I am in fact carrying a weapon or two. My droid is also armed.”

”You’re telling them this?”
”Yes. Don’t want to mess things up later. Now buzz off.”

”We should probably get that taken care of as well.”

“Thanks for telling me now.” Turning around, Major Walasta ordered a nearby corporal to check their weapons and receipt them. Once that business was done, Walasta led them out of the building with an escort of five dozen clone commandos and a clone commander. He led the way to the Ministry of Trade, where he entered the reception room of an office. Turning around, he told Drake, “Enter through that door. I will wait outside.”

With that, he promptly left the room with four dozen clone commandos, leaving the remaining three dozen clone commanders and the clone commander in the reception room, while the two newcomers went in.

As Drake entered the room, he looked around. Nothing much to look at that caught his eye off hand. So he turned to face the squib seated at the rooms desk.

”I’m told you’re the guy to talk to about selling the stuff in my cargo bay.”

Sorry... lol. I basically forgot about this thread till now.

"Indeed I am. I am fully authorized by the government to purchase 'necessary' materials. Besides, I need something for my son's birthday. Do you happen to have any 'koovy' items a kid would want?"

”Well, that really all depends on what your kid is into, though I don’t think I have anything that a kid in general might like. Mostly what I have is salvaged pieces of metal from ships hulls and the like, some wiring and computer consoles. There may be a couple parts from various broken-down droids.”

He had R3 bring up a holographic listing of what they had picked up off of the planet.

”Otherwise, some of the stuff we have includes most of an old podracer engine, an external engine we cut off an old busted up YG-4210 freighter, that may or may not be functional, half a dozen old blaster rifles in various contition. Oh, and a pulse cannon we tore off a broken assassin droid we found. That doesn’t seem usable the way we have it, but I think that with a little work you could get it firing.”

”Hmm…let me think.”

If he remembered correctly, the Squibs were hagglers. The squib in front of him would want to talk down whatever price he gave.

”Say a hundred thousand credits!”
”No.”

“What say…2,000 for the cannon, 4,000 for the engine?”
He replied, very careful to make it sound more like a suggestion than what he was actually hoping for.

“6,000 credits? What do you take me for? A traitor Ulgor? Cmon… my koovy friend. For those two worthless pieces of junk, I give you good deal. 12,000 credits! However, we need to sign an official document on that… unfortunately, the person in charge of the document is a greedy backstabbing nonkoovy Ulgor-ish person. He charges… 10,000 credits for the document. Anyways just give him money, and he makes no problems, good deal all around!”

”10,000 for the document? Well, if that’s the case, I’ll only end up with 2,000. What say you pay me 14,000? I pay 10,000 for the document, I end up with 4,000 total. Or, if you want, I could simply take the 4,000, give you the engine and cannon, and we skip the paperwork. Simpler, faster, and we don't have to bother the unkoovy one. Sound koovy to you?”

"Perhaps... Perhaps.

What about, we add in a few computer consoles, and some worthless scrap metal which I will take off your hands, and call it a deal for 4,000 credits?"

”Hmmm…add five hundred to that for a total of 4,500 and you’ve got yourself a deal.”

"Deal. Anything else I can do for you?"

Sorry about wasting so much of your time.

After giving it a moment's thought, he shook his head. Then, he stepped forward and offered his hand: "I think our business here is concluded then? If you want, you can stay awhile and enjoy the... pleasures of Skor II, but if not, I am sure the major out there will escort you back to your docking station."

”If you have not interest in the other stuff, I would say that we’re done here. I’ll be sure to have the parts you bought put where you can get to them while you see to it the credits are transferred to me. Afterwards, I’ll be heading off.”

”That’s it? We came here for 4,500 lousy credits?”
”Could be worse. There’s a chance we might not have sold anything at all.”

“And if you happen to think of anything else you want, or you change your mind, be sure to let me know.”

With that, Drake proceeded back to the docking bay escorted by the Major. Once he had reached his ship, he and R3 unloaded the parts they had sold the Squibs and placed them neatly in a pile where they could get them. The rest they loaded back onto their ship. Once he made sure they had their credits, he and R3 then made sure none of the troops had stayed behind before raising the ramp and preparing to leave.
