Transstar Corporate Information
The relic-prospector supply depot on Buhle was the first facility OBD opened. It is provisioned on an irregular basis from Fija as shipping is available. Transstar provides needed supplies to the various expeditions on the planet and also transports to Fija and brokers at auction any relics they find. Jordan knows that while prospectors of any kind rarely make money, those who supply them frequently make a good deal of it. This is not the type of venture Jordan is particularly interested in, but it is an immediate source of revenue he can use to partially off-set his investments in TIDIs. While the Board is behind the OBD, they consider it an experiment, so Jordan is on a short financial leash.
Jordan also sponsors what he calls "Warm Recoveries." These missions involve extracting large and semi-fixed relic industrial equipment that may be beyond the ability of Free Traders to recover or locals to utilize. Consistent with his philosophy and the work necessary for these operations, Jordan enlists the consent and cooperation of locals by trading surplus capital goods from the RC that the locals can use for the relic machinery that they can't use. Transstar provides skilled personnel to uninstall and prepare the relic equipment for shipment without damaging it, then trains native technicians to use the new equipment from the RC.
Jordan's plans for the future are to expand his TIDIs further into the AO, and to conduct exploratory trade missions into the nearby subsectors of Alpha Crucis.
