If you need a sidearm, Elyssa
can get one for you... if you can find her in New Hong Kong.
The Foglios maintain New Hong Kong, a travelers' aid base on 2244 Tesla. The resident population is split evenly between the faction's Buck Godot and Sparks subgroups; the former are New Hong Kong's public face, while the latter maintain the base's systems. Unlike many such bases, New Hong Kong is open to anyone regardless of faction (or lack thereof); visitors are warned that There Are No Laws On New Hong Kong.
The Sparks also maintain an emergency slip for the Sol Bianca on Tesla. It is unknown whether The Professor has ever used this facility.
Travellers are often happy to learn that there's a Brubek's on New Hong Kong.
