Merchant and Civilian, 1st time. I have found keeping some high priced legit trade items in haul, useful. After answering a distress call, the dialog from rescued trader, when hailed, will offer business. They buy things at a high price. 5 diamonds was well over 100,000. Just remember to scavenge, later, or a low price item may appear. Ive been in this Scarab for a very long time. It is good, at avoiding enemy broadsides and going up the skirt, with 2 front turrets and 2 front arc turrets.
