We didn’t even know they were in the system until that Grodon officer walked into town and posted the notice on the town hall door. He was very polite, naturally.
Some folks are up in arms about it. Not literally of course. They just feel like we came out here — far away from any Association trade circuit — to get away from government, any government. Personally, I have mixed feelings. I won’t like paying Association taxes, but they’ve already taken out the pirates that were raiding our supply ships, and I hear we’re getting a new generator, so that ain’t bad.
