CEO Prophet, House Bifrost is interested in renewing this contract. Will that be possible?

My my. Time does fly. We certainly wish to continue our privateer contract. In fact, would it be possible to expand the squad? 1-2 Manticores and a pair of the latest Dragonfly frigates? The squad is a few years old and could use some beefing up.

I have no objection to re-negotiating the details of this contract, but I would like to have a brief contract extension while the details are worked out. A five month extension with no other changes should be fine.

Are the ships that you want to add in Squad Six-A? I noticed they have set a course for Kartogia.

That is not the reason why those ships are heading for Kartogia. I want them to get trained, and act as reserves should I lose ships along this front. They are not doing me a whole lot of good in Ochre anyways.

But I am willing to add them to Squad DragonFire if that is easier. I still would like to get at least 1 warship out of the Bifrost shipyards though.

My main concern is cost. If I build four ships to add to this contract, I will not be able to add any ships to the Military contract. If ships that are already build are added, I can fit 2 into this contract without needing to reduce the military contract's ships.

If you want me to build at least one ship for this contract, then I will be building 3 for the military contract.

Long term, I want to increase the military contract, not this one. Having a force to annoy the Phong is important to me, but less important than defense and planetary assaults.

I understand. But I do need to update this fleet from time to time, or else it will be so obsolete it will be no threat to the Phong.

What about building me the one ship, but only increasing the monthly cost to cover 2 already-built ships? The new ship is simply a form of payment to us. Like a one-time bonus.

Truth is, I am looking for the new ship to be used as a replacement, not an addition. I want to update the fleet this way. In the past I would retrofit, but that takes too much time and ties up repair assets. With new ships, I can just bring the fleet home, swap 'em out and get back to fighting. You get more for your money since there is less down time. If I still want to retrofit the old ships, I have plenty of time.

So what do you think?

I am willing to do a trade, send whatever ship you planned on removing to the nearest repair base, once it arrives, transfer it to me. I will refit that ship to a design you want to add to the military contract, and transfer it back to you under a military contract expansion.

In exchange, I will build you a new privateer, and add two of the already-built ships to the privateer contract. I will also build you three new ships for the military contract, plus the refit mentioned above will equal four added to the military contract.

So one of my privateer warships will be refitted under Bifrost and transferred to the 51st Mveloem Force? Interesting. I like it. You got yourself a deal. I will put together the new extension and send it to you to review.

Excellent. There's no rush on the draft, we have some time before the extension ends.

Thank you for understanding. I have yet to complete the draft. My mind is so focused on the reorganization.

So that I am clear (since it has been awhile):

- I am turning over one of the privateer ships to you, with the understanding it will be retrofitted for the military contract
- I will receive a newly-built privateer warship
- The new ship and 2 ships from DD Squad Six-A will be added to the privateer fleet and their cost included in the monthly payment (the cost of the old ship will be subtracted)
- This deal is for another 2 years
- Every other aspect of the original privateer contract is still in effect (like the bounties)

Do I have it all?

One question.

Would you like the "2 years" to start immediately upon signing, or tacked on after the 5-month contract we are currently operating under?

Once the extension is complete. I would need to know the new designs being added before I could sign the new contract.

Absolutely. The contract extension will specifically name the two current ships to add, the privateer ship leaving, and the new design to be built.

For your own analysis, we are considering the following scenario:

Add DDS Astrafly point defense frigate
Add DDS Perico assault destroyer
Remove DDS Cassowary point defense destroyer
Build 1 Cassowary VI-class point defense destroyer

BSS Northern Casso has just been upgraded to a Casso VI at Mveloem III. This will most likely be the ship I transfer (unless it is badly damaged/dead at time of transfer). She has some combat experience and would make a good addition to your privateers.

Let us go with that then. The new ship will be the Northern Cassowary. That way we don't have to worry about construction time, or tying up one of your shipyards.

The contract will hopefully be completed shortly. I will let you know.
