I ran the scanner over the box until it made the good ‘ding’ sound and spat out a sticker. I tore the sticker off, slapped it onto the side, and moved onto the next one.
Same thing I’d done thousands of times before, every working day for the past dozen years. As possible assignments from the programming went, it’s pretty cool. 7-Alpha clearance, deluxe cred package, negotiable breeding rights…
The scanner then made the bad ‘ding’ noise, and flashed an authorization. I pulled out my laser and disintegrated the box, and the 2-Tau inside.
That’s why I get the creds.
