‘Hephaestus Shuffle (n., colloquial):
A crime perpetrated on a person, usually human, who is new to, or otherwise unfamiliar with, Hephaestus Station; a prank, ruse, or flim-flam. Crime class C.’
(excerpt from The Young Lawman’s Dictionary of Minor Offenses, Templeton-Rhettlock Press, 3312)
Hephaestus Station, shining crown jewel of the Novik sector. A one-stop shop for everything everyone in the universe could need. Legal or illegal, over or under the counter, from Templeton-Rhettlock’s many quality novelty goods to smuggled alien body parts, Hephaestus station caters to the whims of every space jockey, displaced dictator-in-exile, and alien time-hopper that the universe has to offer.
Those who make their living on Hephaestus Station are rare breeds, the kind of entrepreneurial spirits with surprisingly low scruples that seem to crop up anywhere there’s money to be made. Whether they’re out to line their pockets, bring down empires, or just get off-station; whatever names they choose for themselves, the people in Cop Sector have just one name for them- Shufflers.
