Off to Ecosystem's Unlimited

Emptying out your suit?
I have to make room for new stuff, Helix.
Getting into Ecosystems Unlimited is the best looting opportunity I've had in months! There's no way I'm not going to be ready for it!
Wake up, Sam! Wake up! It's time to go!
Zzzz. Snk! Just five more hours.

Did you want to stop for breakfast?
Ecosystems Unlimited will have break rooms. I'll grab something there.
The last time we talked about these guys, they didn't seem happy about Bowman's Wolves walking around out of their control.
Back home, that's true. Here, maybe we'll get off to a good start.
At least, that's what I hope.
Hope is fine, but you get better results with bribes. I recommend that we bring donuts.

We want at least a dozen donuts to reach the medical guys, so buy forty.
To make up for losses along the way. Guards. Secretaries. The occasional manager.
Spaceship captains.
Forty is a lot of donuts for one person to carry. Figured I'd help out some.

Security is over there. Offer them a sugary confection or two. I'll be along in a moment.
With armed guards, it's safer if they first see me with donuts in their hands instead of guns.

HALT! Uhm. Hi. Are you an alien?
I'd get in trouble if I shot an alien and started an interstellar war that pitted humanity against a technologically superior species. They write you up for that.
I'm not an alien. I'm a Bowman's Wolf. I brought donuts.
Wow! Lucky I didn't shoot! Starting a war is nothing compared to the amount of trouble I'd get into if the guys found out I messed up a donut run!

According to the computer, you're one of our products. You're going to need an escort to go on site.
One escort, right here!
The beautiful thing about security glass is that it protects both ways.

Yes, I do. He's my captain.
She's my new engineer.
It say here she is qualified to work on starship! Your ship is not qualified to be landfill!
You with her is like a lungfish with a Ferrari!
Except that there are still brokers around here who'll give a lungfish insurance.

It shoots a ball of stuff we call squawk gel. Thousands of tiny transmitters in a super glue goo.
It has enough impact to let a person know they've been hit. The transmitters shut down electric motors by putting their controllers into maintenance mode.
They also flag you as hostile to site security, which goes from non lethal to progressively lethal as long as the painted target keeps moving.
Which explains why your guard towers have both pie throwers and plasma cannons.

So, are you going to give me a pass or not?
Not be wanting to, but Mayor say Florence go. As her captain, you have right to go.
Follow path exactly. Do not vary from path or there will be much activity from pie throwers.
I notice the path has me dropping her off at medical and then continuing into a shark tank.
Earth fish. Very educational. Keep you from getting bored while she has tests done.

We have our pass. Let's go before the guards run out of donuts.
Bye. Thanks for your time.
We're doing well. Past the first barrier and we still have two dozen donuts left.
Though it still would have been more fun to sneak over the fence.
Sorry. Blood test requirements are no food, drink, or hits with a plasma cannon for twelve hours before reporting.
