Each sector has about eight space stations, of several different types as listed in the manual. Three are special:
|a. Every sector has a Trading
Post, which sells some basic goods (at a high price) and also has a few
other things you need;
1. The Tactical Navigation system
2. Singularity Engine (speed enhancer)
3. Cargo bay extensions
You can also save your game here (Insurance)
|b. Some sectors have a Space Equipment Dock, which sells weapons and armor.|
|c. Even fewer sectors have a Shipyard, which is where you go to buy your own space stations. More on this later.|
|The others all buy one or more resources and sell one product. They also sell "Insurance" (i.e., let you to save your game). Do it.|
|So find a station selling
something you can afford, then take it to another station that will buy
it from you. Buy low, sell high.
Nothing to it!
