Oon only happens to be passing through the mercenaries’ facilities (as the only outpost with supplies in the region) and manages to deftly navigate reuniting with the party without blowing their covers. Kell learns that a merc ship out on an convoy escort patrol was captured and lobbies the acting company commander Vox to take the Razor, a merc corvette class ship, after the captured crew but is denied. Vox and Kell are very antagonistic to each other at the best of times; Kell, therefore, takes the ship anyway, crewed by like minded allies. One of the freighters Oon was traveling with also jumped to hyperspace after the Razor did. Kell leaves Erisi and the heroes out of his plans. The party and Erisi are called into question as allies of Kell and officially are not allowed to leave the planet until this mess is sorted out. Sergeant Grinder seeks the party out and reveals his suspicion that they are more than they seem. He asks them if they can go after Kell and get to the bottom of his suspicions about Vox. The party agrees and Grinder provides them access to the Stormhawk to get off world.
