You requested I seek out information on the reasons for the S.S. Adeodatus’ delay and repairs. I may have discovered the beginning of an answer, or perhaps another unrelated but not insignificant discovery.
I attempted to establish an in with the Senator’s ship to begin collecting information. As a counter, he directed me towards his assistant, Solka, for something he classified as something of an insignificant but time pressing favor. Curious, I decided to attend the meeting.
During the course of the meeting, Solka asked me to utilize the Laehval’s replicators to reproduce a variety of parts which, while innocuous on their own, are often combined together to make illicit substance paraphernalia. She made reference towards a substance known as Tarkalian red with claims it aided the Senator in his ‘complex responsibilities.’ The substance in question is a known recreational drug most often utilized for euphoria, relaxation, sedation, and reducing anxiety. Regardless of this drug’s status or classification, it would likely not be beneficial to the Senator’s professional reputation if his regular usage of this substance was made public. Attached is the requisition list and schematics given to me by Solka; enough to embarrass the Senator if leaked to the public, to back up the claims I have made. I leave this information in your capable hands to do what you will, but due to Solka’s inflexibility in delivery methods, I did not determine it viable for me to fulfill this favor.
If you require anything else, do not hesitate to call on me. However, I do not believe I have enough favor to continue investigating the Senator’s ship at this junction.
