The time has come to meet with a financing representative of the Brewer Corporation for confirmation of funds to pre-order a Fleet Carrier. It’s a relatively quick meeting as my current balance at the Bank of Zaonce meets all the requirements with room to spare. Apparently the business of selling exploration data to Universal Cartographics, as well as my new found love of Low Temperature Diamond mining, has been quite profitable.
The representative, Ms Bee Ter (or perhaps Bee Tar, I forget how she spells it), presents the current pricing plans for carrier and service purchase, together with the annual maintenance costs. She graciously reminds me of the incidental costs associated with the deployment of a carrier, including the maintenance costs of each jump and the current market price of the Tritium fuel.
