Unlocking the box – Lucy Liberia

The setup

I was contacted over subspace by the Ferrengi Grym. Having appropriated a few lock boxes from Quark’s private supply, Grym is offering to give them to me for removing them from Drozana station. Apparently Grym is worried that the security chief Commander Danz knows.

The illicit goods

After beaming down to the station, I retrieved the package. It contained two sets of Ferengi lock boxes complete with keys. The first contained a requisition for stats boosting consumables. The second contained a Lobi crystal.

The scam

In traditional Ferengi style, you have to look a gift horse in the mouth. The Lobi crystal is an apparent draw to yet another type of vendor available at the Drozana station. This vendor is a Lobi crystal consortium vendor.

From what I can tell it’s a marketing scheme. I would bet 1000 gold pressed latinum bricks that Grym has bought up a lot of master keys and is trying to get people to purchase them.

It is possible that at some point in the future, I might even be tempted to buy a few, but the likely hood is low. Dealing with Ferengi makes my skin itch for some reason.
