Negative: The crew roofied a kch-thk hive queen into compliance with their demands.
The Earwig faced off against the Wild Wild West, whose crew had gleefully accepted a contract to keep the Lasers off Krk’ith’k. After a close contest, the Earwig declawed the rival Lasers, then embarked on a station orbiting the planet, their scans having failed to locate their quarry. Accepting a call from the Krk’ith’k Finance Minister, the Lasers learned that an important hive queen on the planet had fallen in love with the sales-vas-mal who delivered the Egggobbler, and she was no longer producing kch-thk larva, causing a potentially-extinction-level imbalance of power on the planet. Meeting with the queen, the Lasers employed the F0110W-ME they recovered on Tartarus to get her to agree to let the vas mal and the ship go.
Rewards and Consequences
The crew spun their drugging the kch-thk queen, suffering no penalty to their reputation.
