Item "found" on Clarion station: 2d10 kilo of TD-19 explosive with a cheap Oni Sends detonator found in air vent or behind an access panel. It's thickly covered in dust and possibly has been in this spot 10 or more years if one has to guess. Oni Sends is a company making cheap knock off that often have defects.

"The Apothecary": a small shop run by a small wisened gnome of a man, Bartholomew Bigelow the "Apothecary to the Stars" has a little shop on Clarion station. If anyone tries to question the "to the Stars" appellation he just smiles. He also trades in rumor and some say has connections to CFM. 

He specializes in teas and gum. But his teas and gum are formulated for specific biologies or species so a tea sold to a specific species is of no effect on another. Note gum is not suitable for all species (dralasites and vrusk) not appreciated by yazirians so it's almost exclusively a human product. 

Pain Ease gum or tea formulated for individual species floods the users system with pain killing compounds and triggers the release of endorphins or endorphin like compounds from the user's brain as their specific biology. 1 cup Tea works for 5 hours or one stick of gum for 1 hour (5/pack) will nullify pain penalty and limitation of one rate of fire for 1/2 STA. Adequate self administered anesthetic substitute. 
Cost 2 Cr. Per 1 tea bag or pack of gum

Elast-A-Balm
For dralasites but some humans claim it's great as a hair gel. Elast-A-Balm comes in a small pocket sized jar and will last one GST week of continual use. It cuts the dralasties limb formation time in half and artificially increases the dralasite's DEX score ONLY for puposes of computing number of limbs he can generate (max score= 100). If used as hair gel it imparts a greasy look but hair won't move except extreme circumstances. Yazirians dislike the smell -5% for NPC reactions to a user of this product. 

Cost: 10 Cr 

Blood Infused Fortified Targ Jerky
No body but Yazirians likes the taste. If a yazirian injests this one hour latter he will have a +5% to battle rage attempts and this effect will last 5 hours. Comes in small resealable pouches 5 doses to a pouch.
Cost: 20 Cr./ Pouch

Vrusk Alert Kzz Grubs
The Kzz grubs are traditional vruskan medical practice. The grubs we're grown and fed certain compounds which were stored in their bodies. When the grub was injested by a vrusk the medical properties of those compounds we're experienced by the injestee. This was a very old and traditional practice. A trade house on __________(I'll supply the colony name latter) has revived this practice marketing The Vrusk Alert compounds which boost a vrusk ability to pay attention conferring a +5% bonus to both INT and Comprehension ability. They take effect within 10 minutes of ingestion and last for 5 hours. Originally the grubs had to be kept alive but the Vrusk Pharmicopia trade house developed a secret method of drying the grubs and retaining the effecacy of the drug/ compounds this is their flagship product. 

Cost: 10 Cr/ dried grub. 

There are various herbal teas that the Apothecary makes for various ailments or compaints.
Void Jump Tea is said to have a calming effect on the system for those who experience nasea and distress during void jumps. Void Jump Tea is 2Cr/tea bag and special teas are made to order 3 Cr /does 

Zero G tea Brewer and tumbler: 20 Cr (with Royal Marine crest and motto emblazoned on side: 25Cr).

Note: anyone playing a practical joke on a sleeping yazirian by putting Elas-A-Balm in his mane runs the risk of bodily harm. The smell so offends a yazirian that they are 25% likely to wake up when the joker comes near them.

Edit: Warning: Pain Ease Gum is know to the Government of Gran Quivera to be habit forming.
