Summary[edit | edit source]

Exchange <commodity> in local systems for Energy Credits.

Outcome[edit | edit source]

(Unprofitable): The haggling went extremely poorly, and the exchange your representative agreed upon was indeed a bargain - for those you were trading with.

(Profitable): Trade negotiations proved moderately profitable, and your representative was able to arrange an adequate exchange.

(Extremely profitable): The haggling proved extremely profitable, and your representative was able to engineer a superior bargain.

Notes[edit | edit source]

This assignment is best suited to Ferengi players. Using the Ferengi 20% energy credit discount and only buying trade commodities from Specialized Commodities Brokers will maximize the player's profit margins. With both discounts, even an Unprofitable result yields a modest return on EC investment (though the XP, expertise and dilithium rewards are only paid on Profitable or better results.)

It also meshes well with Assignment: Trade for commodity, as Profitable results from those assignments can yield a per-unit cost even lower than the Ferengi buyer/Specialized seller combo described above, allowing a savvy player to push margins even higher.
