Passing by Mercury, where there is only a lemonade stand operated by a Flanoobian merchant. That’s it. Lemonade. We suggested on our last visit that she might offer some trinkets and baubles, purely in the interest of diversification, but she only smiled and asked if we wanted some diamond dust on our drinks.
Onward to Venus, where we descend through the murk and explore the tunnels of the Heechee. A quick stop at the “Dilithium Crystal-n-Go” and we’re blasting off again.
