Do you understand the full implications of this? Daniel has written a program that piggybacks onto the Valarian NAV beacons. AND IT WORKS! And he put it up for sale to the highest bidder. He will never, ever have to work again. Everyone will want this program.
No one will ever have to sit through a month of Valarian NAV class again, listening to their views of how the Verse should be run. No one will have to pay boocoo bucks for the Valarian NAV software and the endless updates. They won't have the monopoly on the Verse.
The Valarian's will want it so they can squelch it. The Galactic Officials will want it so they won't have to pay the Valarian's for each upgrade. Transport kings like Andrew Daily will want it and could outbid everyone. Smugglers, black marketers, slavers, every thieves and cutthroats....
Oh Shit! That's the reason he wanted the bodyguards... That rotten little puke!
