** But why would they want to be stealthy? Being known as a race of space pirates would be amazing by Sqid standards! Admittedly, yes, they couldn't be interstellar pirates, but in-system piracy would be feasible.

* That would require major advances in FasterThanLightTravel. With Freefall's current FTL it simply isn't economical to transport materials from one system to another, [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff1300/fv01252.htm otherwise]] Sam would get rich trading trash between his homeworld and Jean. And in-system piracy is unlikely as, to paraphrase Atomic Rockets, "There ain't no StealthInSpace!"

Granted, there will be rules: Only terraform non-living space rocks, only raid rocks with radio, etc. But honestly, given their scavenger instincts, the idea of raiding the super-worlds of humanity would probably not only appeal to the Sqids but also be one of the most sustainable galactic economy models. In the long run, this would benefit everyone, as everyone would have reason to keep developing tech for the unending pirate war.

He knows full well that is plan will leave Jean in shambles. He also knows his bosses at Ecosystems Unlimited will come after once they realize what happened. He doesn't care. He thinks once he's got that money, ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney will be in full effect. He ''dosen't'' seem to grasp that any account big enough to hold all that money, or multiple accounts suddenly flush with cash will be red flagged and seized the moment the news about Jean spreads.

Things still work out for Florence though, because Ecosystems unlimited realizes the upcoming demand for non-robot, non-human entities and starts producing altered bowman's wolves for this purpose.
