Port of Darkness is a working title for a dark conspiracy campaign set in Port Loren. 

Start is Port Loren barbershop. Jagger, a yazirian barber, and Atomo Tom "just call me Tom"  a level 6 robot barber have made a couple of missing pwe won reports that they feel the police are not taking seriously. Some of their regular customers have gone missing. Jagger and Tom are NPCs I plan to fill out fully (with secrets) and a map of the shop. As a source of rumors and plot hooks. 

The customers that have gone missing are dralasites that would come in for dermal laser ablation that the shop offers for both drals and vrusk. 
I might not be a dralasite, vrusk or yazirian but I do play one in Star Frontiers!

Tom has searched data bases and can provide addresses, chronocom numbers for 3 Dralasite regular customers that have gone missing over a 4 months. Jaggaer and Tom mention it because the last one who mysteriously went missing has had a reward posted for information leading to his location. Jaggaer allowed its social school yo post a holo notice on the shop's bulletin board. 1000 Cr. 

Investigation of the missing dralasites will lead to: they all lived within a 5 km distance, someone saw a dral in a business toga being forced into a hover van, one of the recent disappearances hasn't paid his rent, land lord is angry planning to evict PCs should be able to talk their way into the apartment. Where they will find Dralasite blood fluids and skin but the nucleus/brain has been removed. 

Investigation should lead to professor at local university doing disection of the dral they are looking for. He's part of a crime ring involving the creation of Cybots with stolen brains. His involvement is that he's studying Dralasite brains hoping to solve certain problems with liquid metal robots hoping dralasite/Cybots hybrids will lead him to a breakthru. 

He is connected to a gang network that provides him with bodies to experiment on. 

Taking out the gang or dealing with a cell of this gang will lead to a ledger of clients ( the gang moves/sells cheap cybots for the rich). 

One of those clients is a powerful personage in Port Loren. 

Also the professor's work could have a connection thru the vrusk mafia to the Malthar maybe because of his interest in robots and or a desire for immortality by mating his nucleus/brain to a cutting edge liquid metal robot.
