          1. They value their independence and freedom; struggle against the corps
        2. Believes the crew prob thought that if they brought it back, it wasn’t “staking a claim” for the Astral Extraction in the future, but rather, it was something that they brought back, and is loot.
          1. He is not disputing the AE claim, and will return all information about exploration to them.
        3. They didn’t hire gang to kill people, but to protect their own. The AE hired the gang.
