Yeah, but those you have to rip out of destroyed ships... Which is a bother if you're drunk already. That's why I go for the "Eat your allies" option, it's so much easier to catch the little buggers. and my Iron Chef, Shigeru the Shofixti really cooks some great meals....

Just to throw some more facts into the mix, I would like to add that Carbon (definately a common element) and Gold (Precious of course) have found some interesting uses in nanotechnology.  No doubt some of you may have heard of carbon nano-tubes and perhaps less of you have heard that when Gold is arranged in a certain 20-atom (or so, I'm not good at remembering numbers) it becomes a perfect insulator.

Oh yeah, you might as well throw in some common elements to turn into plasma as well. :P

Quote from: Lukipela the Almighty
Captain has a full complement of tasty molluscs aboard if he is hungry. There is also the possibility to have some hot Yehat wings, genuine Umgah Jell-O, wok fried Supox, or Peking Pkunk.

A Zoq-Fot-Pik salad is always a healthy option, or why not simply go fro Tradash tartar? Lots of food in space...
Thraddash Fruit Cakes are the best.

Try as we might, we just can't make this friendly thing work, Teacher.
Even your idea about exchanging the ritual gifts, the `Fruit Cakes' has had problems.
It seems that nobody actually wants to eat the Fruit Cakes
however, on the plus side, due to the Fruit Cakes' density and other physical characteristics
they make excellent projectile weapons!


Very healthy for your teeth.

And to remain on-topic, I'd like to stress that:
20 kilotons of oxygen have the same value as 1 kiloton of Tzo Crystals. And all resources are processed and transformed into RUs. And an Eluder can be made of a lot of Commons or a few drops of Exotics just as well. Which means that they, in fact, "cut down" them somehow, probably breaking them down into neutrons, protons, electrons and some energy (hey, it's sci-fi).

Hey now, theres an interesting thought. What if specific ships needed x amount of RUs + some combination of minerals. Maybe some precious + radioactives, or zome tzos

EDIT: I am an idiot. Please disregard this post.

I've no idea why Valaggar choose to resuscitate this thread, but this piques my interest. Why did Shiver go back and edit his original post three years after the fact? What secrets where hidden here, deep within the heart of the forum?
