"Because space travel isn't that simple. Also, the mining on Manticore made them rich… Most of them, at least. Manticore is richer than Eden money-wise in the United Systems of Terra."

"It sure doesn't feel that way, " Flick mumbled.

As expected, the group was lead into the 'store front' where they were expected to buy things. Koris presumed that everyone in their group, being Manticore Metropolis' elite, would be smarter than to give into this ploy to give Olympus United their money.
