Marissa and the traders arrive on the planet Ninovan to trade for crystals. A simple trade but nothing is simple on Ninovan. They find there is no trading at the spaceport. Instead, the crew must travel to a native Trade Center. The natives hate offworlders. Xeres want something from the natives. Marissa finds herself caught between the natives, the military, Xeres, and the rest of the traders.
