An interesting discussion tonight regarding operations on Caprice where it pertains to the corporations. Some of this likely fits Ross' thoughts on it as well.

The train of thought that led to the epiphany started out with wondering why the Capricians are happy with the increasing diversion of manufacturing for luxury and normal consumer goods to military hardware. In most cases, this would lead to the public being quite upset with the CEF... though all evidence so far points away from that -- just how much the CEF's bankroll of corporations might be why.

Brad suggested we go in and "convince companies that their profit levels are going to plummet if they stay with CEF."

I disagree. The problem is that this pretty much amounts to threatening the company itself. Not only are they less likely to ally to us in the future, but they'll almost certain to notify the CEF, help set us up to be caught, and suck in a nice reward from the CEF coffers. (The corpserfs on that station, if they lived, are going to be far richer from hazard pay, and you can bet the CEF will be asked to cover damages to such a vital installation.)

If we're going to get any corporations on our side, it's going to come by us making them richer. We have to show them that we are going to make more black, not red.

"What we do is we go in and tell them we're going to attack their major competitor's holdings. Maybe even which ones. We point out that while that company is down for repairs, they'll be able to move in and steal the business away."

Think of it as giving them the chance to do a little insider trading. And the less conspicous our connection to them is, the better... but we still want to be able to come in at a future date and say "We did this, you owe us."

Our reputation, as we've heard so far, is that we're careless, thoughtless barbarians. We want to leave Caprice having gained a few allies who see us as a valuable asset to their company and the means to a brighter future.

Or to simplify it even more... "What do you want?"

Roland says we start assassinating the Board of Directors for Gallot.

"They cooperated with the CEF and let them use one of their stations as a trap for Black Talons? Now their board is dead? Hrmmm...let's not piss them off."

I'm here to kick ass and chew bubblegum. And I'm all out of bubblegum.
