This is Colonel Drake Pranger, former owner of the ship formerly known as "Integrity."
He is spending a lot of money on a new ship, and is spending it with the Daysun-Tingo shipwrights.
That's the same firm responsible for fixing up Tagon's new ship.
Daysun Tingo 'Bot:
Colonel? The "special project" is complete.
Excellent. You've earned that bonus.
I don't know about you, but I find his contented smile worrisome.
