Seeking Fortune

Feilans have finally entered the realm of space in their solar system, a vast area, full of exotic planets and phenomena. The colonies created by the old Edwinish Party have developed into a new faction, the Dmitrians, whom are descended from Feilans, but whom have developed a separate cultural identity from their colonial forefathers. At the edge of the system lurks the formidable faction known as the Immortals, a group of furs whom have used technology to live forever, in a constant state of hostility with Feila and Dmitri, both of whom are on tense enough relations as it is. All natives are furry (Skin Avian are present here too). No native humans.

Sakura cocked her head a little. "If you'd made it that far up the ranks, why leave?" She asked as she led the way to the area of the ship that served as the galley. She started digging through things, and eventually set to making herself a cup of coffee. "You want anything?" She asked Alfred as she waited for her coffee to brew.

"This run should be fairly quick. We just gotta pick something up from the mining asteroid and drop it off for a client in Dmitri" She started to explain their current job.

"Coffee would be nice.", Alfred replied after ignoring her first question.

"What is the exact cargo?", he asked. "It's not entirely uncommon for pirates to watch trade routes for ships leaving the mining asteroids, and often they have inside information about cargo manifests. So it might serve us well to be aware of the cargo, and the likelihood that they might desire it"

"Sure." Sakura replied as the cup of coffee she was fixing finished brewing. She set the cup on the table for Alfred, and started brewing a second cup. "don't know if you take creamer or sweetener." She commented as she worked on the second cup. Once the second cup was brewing, she moved over to another storage compartment and pulled out sweetener and creamer. She set them out on the table, and grabbed her own cup of coffee. She moved over to the table, and took a seat before she began stirring sweetener, and creamer into her coffee, her expression contemplative as she did.

"Well..." She said before taking a drink from her cup, seemingly unphased by the fact that it was still quite hot. "...The only thing going on the manifest is a few tons of refined metals." She told Alfred. "and that's mostly what we're picking up. There is, however, one item we will be transporting that will not be on the manifests." She smiled briefly. "That's where we're making the real money." She added. "Shouldn't take us more than a couple days to get there."

"Danke." Alfred said as he took his coffee. "I suppose I don't need to know exactly what it is or else you'd tell me."

"In any case, I don't think pirates will give us any trouble, and if they do....." Alfred trailed off, sliding a paw down and unbuttoning his holster flap. He drew his pistol out, and set it in front of him on the table. It was now even more obvious that this was no conventional weapon. The polished dark wooden grips alone would have set it apart from its more common polymer-crafted counterparts. It looked simple mechanically, more like an antique firearm than one of the newer dart rifles. The barrel was of a rather large diameter, 13mm in fact. The gun-barrel itself was of simple steel with a chrome inner liner. However, it's assembly was thick, far more so than even most of the larger antique handguns.

"It's a data chip...I'm not privy to it's contents though." She replied. She nodded as Alfred expressed that it wan't likely that they would encounter pirates. She looked at the weapon he placed on the table. Unfortunately, she wasn't well versed in firearms of any kind as she never used them. All she could tell was that it was unique from an other's she had seen. She nodded for a moment before she spoke. "Just don't fire it on the ship if you don't have to please." She told him. "lots of delicate and important parts behind the paneling." She said with a smile. "Though, please forgive my ignorance in this, how is a single gun going to make that much of a difference?" She asked curiously. "I almost never deal with them."

"I meant it more as a symbolic gesture, in that I think with the weapons of this ship, we shouldn't have any trouble with smaller pirate craft." The otter explained. "I've heard rumors of rather large pirate vessels- armored cruisers and the like, but have yet to conform the more recent sightings"

Sakura laughed. "with any luck any pirates will see the weaponry and turn the other way." She agreed "This baby has a few tricks up her sleeves too in case we encounter anything we can't fight." She said with a wink. She looked back down at the gun, then back at Alfred. "Well, you seem pretty proud of it either way. You going to tell me about it?" She grinned a small impish grin "Guys like to talk about their guns right?" She lightly teased.

"Not so much proud of it as confident in its abilities, and my own." Alfred explained. "It's based off an experimental weapon from the 1960s, but its extensively modernized. It is essentially a gyrojet- it fires spin-stabilized rocket propelled rounds, so it will work in a vacuum. Recoil is rather minimal, even though the cartridge is actually a tad larger than 12.7mm. The original design had accuracy issues, but this model has rectified that, and also increased the magazine size a bit."

Sakura nodded as Alfred explained his weapon. She wasn't much with firearms, but it was fascinating from an engineering standpoint, making a rocket that was small enough to be fired by a handheld weapon while keeping in potent enough to be worthwhile. While she felt a rocket was a bit 'overkill' for the tight quarters any kind of fight on a ship would be, it was probably a handy thing for larger areas. "well, it's definitely unique from anything else I've seen." She replied with a smile. "So, we've got some time to kill, what would you like to do?" she asked as she finished her cup of coffee.

((Don't know if you want to continue the interaction, or skip to their arrival at their destination.))
