Archer nodded to Vance. ” Expecting Vance to start pushing back harder against Archer’s increasingly challenging tone, Mayweather was surprised when the freighter captain merely threw his head back and laughed. “My crew and I are probably responsible for a goodly number of those stories about dilithium-hungry Klingon raiders plundering the Gamma Hydra sector,” Vance said after he’d finally gotten his breathing back under control. “Spreading those kinds of tales tends to encourage my competitors to drill their wells somewhat closer to the safe green hills of Earth, as it were.

My cargo is already spoken for, so I can’t simply trade it away. ” “In the state she’s in right now, Captain, the Maru’s voyage is already over,” Burch said. ” Though Vance looked deflated, his tendency toward bravado hadn’t deserted him entirely. ” Except for the faint clatter of metal forks against lightweight aerogel plates, a sudden hush blanketed the room.
