Doctor Varroxxian Posted November 5, 2011 Share Posted November 5, 2011 WHEN: 3 days after Jungle Den She didn't have an office, she only had a the one old op-book and her data band. There was no corporate HQ ... or was there? She had the sign up list for the public library. She's signed up as a high school science club - and dressed the part. Starseed 1, 2, and 5 were working up a storm as 'Jim', 'Marry', and 'Asa' thanks to some subtle body shifting and more of those clothes lifted from those campers. She really would have to make it up to those people ... eventually Zephyr could track down the licence number of their van. They'd reserved a little work room with old fashioned white boards and four old op-net terminals. The young fellow, Jeremy Mandabu, in charge of room reservations liked high-school girls apparently. All it took to get the room was a few of the right looks, and a well placed compliment. He wasn't the type that the kind of girl she was pretending to be usually went after ... or really went after at all. Easy. Once they had the room she closed the door and promptly pulled three of the four op-net connectors. They'd be using one connected terminal with great care, and the three stand-alones to do all the actual work. "Jim - you're on the master budget, proforma, and reviewing the manifests for every shipment." said Marry - a.k.a. Starseed 1 - turning to Asa, "Asa - you're on marketing now. Good work on the op-net page templates, but we need to prepare materials for the press packet and the corporate distributables". Asa - a.k.a. Starseed 5 - replied "almost done the first model. Have to work with some older spreasheets and op-apps so this is all a bit kludgy but the facts and figures are solid. Really could use those finite element calcs to generate some risk assessment ratios ... and soon, the stress profiles on hull and components are the last things I need". ... and so it went, with rapid progress being made. The idea was simple: sell spots on a two week trip to the stars for 1.1 million Euros. It was well under what people payed for far less in the way of space tourism already.. Plus even one ticket sale was double what she needed to finish the Far Star. Another additional proviso is that everyone have their own counter pressure suit - best to let people get those specifically fitted as it makes a huge leap in comfort. Rich people loved to play at things, and being a Star Traveller was going to be irresistible. Part of the problem was that Starseed didn't even have a proper legal identity, so she was going to have to get everything going with contracts. In most of the Eurozone, any person is recognized under the law as able to enter into a contract ... so that is why she was operating in this jurisdiction for now. It didn't matter what she called herself here, she could still sign on the dotted line. Then she would have cash to spend - not the investments and portfolios that people with bank accounts have. This would sidestep alot of thorny issues. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
