Start: Ganalda System, Eta Eridani Sector Block
Summary: Taking a Ferengi captain's stash of gold-pressed latinum sounds
like great idea, right? Think again! Accused of murder most foul, you
must navigate treacherous females, the Ferengi legal system and the
psychotic filled prison to get free of the mess you created.
An easy five stars!
This is a quick mission (maybe around 20 minutes) that's not too difficult, but is loads of fun. The author took a great folk song (Whiskey in the Jar) and turned it into a fun romp. The summary above is straight forward enough, and if you know the song, you know what to expect from this mission.
It's filled with funny dialogue, with some nice tongue in cheek references to the song--but you won't miss out on the jokes if you don't know it. Most of the mission is dialogue and figuring things out--I'd hesitate to call them puzzles--but there's a bit of combat as well. For your first Spotlight mission of the day, it's a great simple choice, if you're not looking for a challenge.
But that's the only real negative about this mission--it's dead easy. One fight with a bunch of Naussicans lasted literally seconds, and was the "combat highlight" of the mission. But you're not here to beat on Ferengi--you're here to enjoy a night on the town care of his latinum, Definately check it out.
