Information from the Verbena Syndicate Database

  • A Dr. Charity Coppelia has been identified as providing underground medical services in Gaspar City. She's also listed as one of the individuals trafficked by Verbena.
  • There are records of Verbena Syndicate-employed ships visiting the spaceport here in Gaspar City. Two ships in particular made regular port calls: the Trenholm and the Wild Rover, both transport ships.
  • The database indicates that a Cu Hsiu, a local magistrate, has received regular payments from the Syndicate. Exactly why isn't quite clear, but it's probably related to keeping the port police out of the Syndicate's hair.
  • The Verbena Syndicate owns a storage locker here at the port: N-373. It's a 3m by 5m unit. Its contents aren't listed.

Previously On

Episode 1: The Wedding
The Righteous carried a young woman to an arranged Tong-related marriage. For purposes of the series, we'll treat this like an unaired pilot.

Episode 2: Except for all the Others, pt. 1
The Righteous accepts a simple transport job and proceeds to become embroiled in the contentious politics of a mining colony and make a few powerful enemies (the political operative/crimelord/all around scumbag Goodman and his hired gun Calvin Bell). The crew at this point consists of Mattie (captain), Sam (first mate), Brianna (pilot), Magda (information technology), and Meizhi (engineer).

Episode 3: Except for all the Others, pt. 2
Continuation/finale of Episode 2. Shih (public relations) and Ward (medic) join the crew. Sam leaves the crew.

Episode 4: Clearing the Air
The Righteous takes a simple salvage job and ends up fighting both a crazed life support AI and its corporate masters. Magda and Ward leave the crew.

Episode 5: Hair in the Butter
Mattie gets information from an old friend (Sam) as to the location of Tom Chaney, the man who killed her father. The crew heads off after him to the border planet of New Kasmir. They run into an old enemy (Calvin Bell), who snatches Chaney from their grasp. Ward leaves the crew; Wiley (wily) and Quentin (pilot) join the crew.

Episode 6: Remember the Alamo
The crew guards the Kaituo ship repair station from Reaver attack. Quentin and Mattie leave the crew. Bella (pilot), Doc (doc), and Will (fancy vest wearer) join the crew.

Episode 7: Fact Checking, pt. 1
The crew revealed an Alliance intelligence operations to fund both sides of an insurgency on the planet Proust. They also got entangled with Alliance intelligence officer Lynch, who definitely will not show up in the future.

Episode 8: Fact Checking, pt. 2
And now, the conclusion... Will leaves the crew.

Episode 9: Sin City
The crew successfully stole the Nokia from the Penthouse at the Mount Nysa hotel on Dionysia. We meet Shih's ex-husband Beauregard Chen and Wiley's new friend Chef Maisie Ryback. Lazarus (businessman) and Jian (doctor/hacker) join the crew.

Episode 10: The Kalidasa Main
The crew successfully fought their way out of an ambush by the pirate ships Bonny and Read. The Read survived, the Bonny did not. The crew used Lynch's cruiser's name as part of a bluff, and Lynch noticed.

Episode 11: Help Wanted
The crew makes it to Verbena to find that Wiley's cousins and another young woman were kidnapped by corrupt local cops and sold off to be used as labor in Rim colonies. The crew breaks up the kidnapping ring with help from Lynch, who puts it out that the crew are Alliance Intelligence agents. Lynch also hires one of the corrupt cops, an unscrupulous giant of a man named Wetteland. Shih leaves the crew. Wiley leaves the crew (to search for his cousins). Jane (backwoods sniper) joins the crew.

Episode 12: Go West, Young Man
The crew helped out Othais Heelburg, an old friend of the Ross family, and his husband Raj. Adlai Niska wanted possession of the moon Shalako and exploited his hold over Sihnon magnate Hiko Van Allen to get it. The crew got Heelburg and his folks away from Niska's mercenaries and helped get Van Allen's son released.

Episode 13: Your Last Battlefield
The crew helped John Kraig, Browncoat war hero, inventor, and rich guy, find a watch that he had lost on the moon Berrimend during the war. The watch contained pictures of his wife and kids from before the war, and for some reasons somebody didn't want him to have it. That somebody was probably Constantine Chen, member of the System Council, but the crew chose not to poke that bear and find out for sure. The crew was opposed by a crack commando unit [that] was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit, who, among other things, published a video impersonating Bella and claiming she worked for Alliance intelligence. Jian left the crew. Genevieve and Mac joined the crew.

Episode 14: Heads Up
The crew traveled to Brunson Station to help Wiley and Philippe retrieve a server full of information related to the Verbena Syndicate's people-trafficking operation, which should allow the pair to track down Wiley's cousins. Wetteland showed up, and is now convinced that the crew owes him one. Chen showed up, as well. The crew also received a gift from Shih - a small box with a human hand inside, still clad in a bright blue neoprene glove. Kennith and Trân joined the crew.
