This is the best place in the galaxy to conduct business or hear about anything that might be of interest.
We serve all kinds...

Vorlons seen strip-razing Solar-systems!
Earlier today, a report indicated that the greedy Vorlons are building huge mining fleets stripping all minerals from all planetary surfaces. These minerals will not return to the planets for a thousand years. An ancient spokesperson was heard saying that the Vorlons are using this to fuel their escape from the galaxy. The same spokesperson said these minerals should be used by other younger races.

The ancient said, "Vorlons have the ability to tap the resources of Suns, why should they strip the minerals from planets. Young races can expect to see planets denuded of all minerals by the time they settle."

A seedy looking guys sits close at your small table. His outward appearence is non-descript, which in this part of of the station means a worn out jumper and maybe an old unit/station patch. His says Babylon 1.

"I can get you the ships you want," he says after scanning the room, "my contacts in Jane's publications say they received word of a massive shipment of fighters to any who ask... here are the specs..."
A data sheet appears on the table.

"Gift Horse"
Destroyer with disrupter, warp-10 engine, Battle
nexus, Valalium armor, and Gorilla shields. Rumer
has at that the Shadows are handing them out to all who
ask!

The cafe' is dark this time of night. The music is too loud but that's good for business. The kind that requires privacy. At the same time, you can't be too careful. In the corner, an old man nurses a cup of jovian sunspot's while railing at the universe. His companion is somewhat quieter, the sort where you can look at him for hours but realise that you never did get a really good look at him.


"...its not what I think, its what I know...All my money is on the interstellar alliance. There's just too many of them for those fricken ancients to handle.
...The old ets have no understanding of what their in for. The prophets say, "the ancients are the old ones who stuck around to help the young races." only the truth is, those old farts don't have the slightest Idea of how to help anyone.
...They did not stay out of any gratitude, they stayed because they were too wimpy to go beyond the rim! They were not good enough or advanced enough! Hah!"


...VORLONS! Those vorlons may have powerful technology, but they don't care one wit for us lesser races. Look how they left us to fend for ourselves against the shadows and their allies! It took an act of the Ancients to stop the terror! All the vorlons care for is themselves!
...I have been to their territory, they have pretty strong defenses, but nothing like what I have seen the others use. If you ask me, those shadows will give them a huge KO punch soon, in face are already knocking them flat on their faces!
...Thats why we need to stick to each other. The lessers are better and should fight against the older races...

A human in a dusty red cloak sits down next to you-

"Water." he responds to the waitress' query as to what he would like.

"Such a luxury that all you types take for granted. On my world, you have to be rich to afford a bath, or even remove the tang from the water."

He leans over closer, and in a low whisper says "We won't have any problems with money though, if what I've heard is true. Number One says we've got new tech the likes of which Earth ain't ever seen. I hear it's based on that 'world mover' we bought to get away from Earth Alliance. Terraforms a planet from orbit- that's how come Mars is such a nice place nowdays- no more worries about oxygen and such."

He leans back in his chair, and says in avoice barely loud enough to hear over the background,
"Now you didn't hear it from me, but they're for sale, if any race can make a reasonable offer for 'em."

And they can get 'em quick too. If they have a jump gate near...

A tattered man looks like he wants to talk. From the looks of his clothes he has been wearing them for a long time. In fact, the smell gives that away immediately. Tis' a pity, sitting right next to him gives a first class set to at least 6 months of unwashed rim rifraff smell... uck!
His eyes quiver as he starts to speak.
"I hear you were interested in any news from the rim." said nasty man, "I was there. We had a colony on Data 9. 15 years we raised our families there. Now its ashes... I was returning from a courier run when I saw the ships destroying the surface installations. We were not rich! We had nothing...
After hiding, I could only think that I needed to identify who sent those ships. I followed them into hyperspace. They jumped to the Leviathan system... A huge Fleet... Thousands of ships... ships with no defined purpose. But I recognized one ship. It was a Vorlon ship! Those bastards killed my family and my world. Everythings destroyed. When I return to Free Mars, I will hunt them down as for the rest of my life..." The nasty man keeps talking, mumbling about the vorlons and how his mother never trusted them...

The idea that the Vorlons would destroy a colony is a little farfetched. But then again stranger things have happened. A little investigation should clear up any mess. It is possible that the colony was somehow tainted by the shadows... Hmm... Wonder what really happened...

A voice whispers in your ear...

"we've seen a large shadow fleet slip into Vorlon space. It was heading on a route that would take it past a primary vorlon world. We lost the trail 3 days ago. The Vorlons have increased activity but aside from that, nothing has been said of the incursion..."
