“It’s a steel box.”

“It’s a fully functional – well, mostly functional, but all primary systems are functional – Hariven-class free trader.  Just what you want when you’re starting out in this business.”

“It’s a steel box with a plasma torch welded on the back.”

“And a generous cargo capacity for its displacement, regenerative life support, ah – adequate crew quarters and food vats, and docking room for a single surface-orbit shuttle.”

“And it’s –”

“– a steel box, yes.  If you wanted to pay for stylish, would you be shopping for starships in a wreckyard?”

“Show me the contract again.”

– overheard in Kathar orbit, Cilmínár system
