CEO Prophet,

I would like to contract two scout ships to monitor Phong activity in Cretirk and Neckron.

The Phong have not strongly resisted us in Mveloem, but I fear that could change since we are invading their planets. Having an early warning system would be valuable.

I was thinking a montly rate of 300/200/300 (both ships). If you provide the ships I can also extend the same 40% life insurance policy that your other scouts have.

SL Skyburn,

Your proposal is a great idea. And let me say, I am glad you see the value of our exploratory assets. Bifrost patronage gives us a chance to show others what we are capable of.

From your message, it sounds like a shortened version of the recon contract will do. Will Dragonstar be responsible for replacing any scout lost while monitoring a system?

We currently have a new scout en route to Kartogia, the DES Tracker. If we take on this second survey contract, I will most likely order several more scout ships to be built. I wish to keep at least one scout on standby, for various reasons.

That's up to you, I suppose. From previous discussions I'd gathered that you preferred procuring the ships yourself.

If Bifrost supplies the replacement scouts, we will not offer the 40% life insurance. If you supply the scouts, we will offer the policy. Either option is okay with me, but I cannot guarantee available Bifrost SYs near Phong space.

You misunderstand my question, System Lord. Let me re-phrase (though based on your response, I believe I know the answer). If we lose one of these two scouts, will it need to be replaced? Or would we continue the operation with only 1 scout?

Yes, of course Dragonstar will handle the replacement. I just would like to confirm that you are expecting us to replace the ship.

And on a related note, the shipyard on Pembrook V is still available, yes? I think once this deal is finalized, Dragonstar will place an order for 2 Tracker-class scout ships.

Yes.

Sorry for the confusion earlier.

I can build your scouts at Pembrook V.

Contract is now up for your signature.

Dragonstar wishes to order two Tracker-class scout corvettes from your Pembrook V shipyard. Payments to be made consecutively for each scout (ie, pay for one scout at a time).

Submit the deal to the Lawyer's Office and I will sign it.

Contract is ready for your signature. I have placed the yard into fast build. I can build one scout per month.

I was wondering if it would be possible to amend this contract. I would like to have your scout DES Voyeur in Cretirk move to Iditarod.

So we would be responsible for monitoring Iditarod instead of Cretirk? We can do that. But since this is a mid-contract change, it will cost 150/100/150 in Modification Fees.

It appears the DES Tracker is no more. Her luck finally ran out while trying to evade an enemy fleet.

We will be looking to replace her with another Tracker-class scout. What kind of payment plans can Bifrost offer for ship construction? If we can afford it, I might even ask for 2 Tracker scouts (1 for backup).

I can build a Tracker scout this month at Kartogia IX. 105% of cost, 5 payments of 714 / 0 / 551.

A second one might have to be built further from the front lines. It would still need to be 5 payments. (1428 / 0 / 1103)

EDIT: On a related note, the death benefit money has been transferred to you.

It would cost less to build it at Kartogia IX?

I can only build you one at Kartogia IX, the second would need to be further from the front.

5 payments of 714 / 0 / 551 is for one ship.
5 payments of (1428 / 0 / 1103) is for two.

Okay, then I'll take the 1 at Kartogia IX for the rate quoted.

I'll check back with you in a month or two about building a backup Tracker. Hopefully we can get the same rate, but I am not assuming it in the least.
