New versions of the Gigerdi Fighter are brought to supplement the defence of the Peace Station. The Hemmoians and Gigerdians elect to send fighter escorts for civilian craft travelling in the area due to increased piracy. A strange signal is picked up from the planet that the Peace Station orbits, and K'ags Oiduts along with the two Gigerdian ambassadors are sent down to investigate. The signal comes from an old Orcish mining outpost, where the group finds the Jääp Jääp - creatures. At first, some of the creatures attack the group, but the ambassadors befriend one of the creatures and later on even talk to a Jääp Jääp pack leader of some sort.
