(Hm, so no combat ... well, you don't have to, I'm just surprised!)
After few minutes all three of you reach the docks. Some workers load a lot of lootboxes on a freighter, probably for some secondary battle front. But as a technophile Dal can guess those boxes are rather light and empty.
Your ships are in the same state you left them, they did not steal from you. The crate Flo'r wants has some dents as if something tried to bust out of it, but the seal still holds it closed.
...well, that was a bust. OK, I want to pick up my blaster (presumably it's now recharged), reset my security system to go off on any intruders with my spare blaster, leaves the bracelet he bought inside and heads out to talk to the guys with the crates.
"Hey, you guys need any help? I'm pretty handy with a hypo spanner!"
* Unless I can wrangle it as being Streetwise, in which case I'd get another 2 dice
(Actually I meant I was asking the guys with the empty crates if they wanted any help, but if you want to get the party together, I could ask Mobbik & Jey'hd too. It would be a way of getting together, if a little artificial. I DO want the work, but don't know if they NEED a mechanic.)

Dals ship is still in the right place, there is no pile of dead people in front of the entrance and when he retrieves his blaster it seems like noone was inside.
Outside he sees the stressed out and poorly clothed workers happy about the offer. "That would be great, champ! These boxes aren't heavy, but there are a lot. Our boss, Dice E'ey, got what he called 'a massage from the force' to get rid of them so we now have to put them away again. Until he decides differently ... Do you know of a place where are no rules against gambling but one still can squeeze some credits out of people?"
Mobikk floats behind the now alert Jey'hd with the dent cargocrate. In the distance there seems to be some noise, maybe in the marketarea, but the docks and their next destination, the big freight elevators to the old mining tunnels is clear. In front of the six entrances a duros in a sturdy jumpsuit with some stains sits besides a control panel. A blaster rifle is on his lap and his eyes always wander to where the noise is coming from. When he notices you he holds up a sign which says in basic "WheRe 2?"

"Well, there's always New Vhey'gaz, but that's not exactly close (7 d and ONE success - that's some crappy rolling!). But if you want to play a few hands of Sabacc, I'd be up for a game!" [If nothing else, we could all squeeze into my ship which is presumably not subject to - or at least less likely to be monitored by - station rules]
