Thanks, that might make a difference when getting commodities in the thousands.

Short answer, yes the space freighters outside Sol are the cheapest/ most efficient way to get commodities. I don't recall traders in Klingon space, though.

I keep hoping they'll bring back special pricing for the vendors to make it worth your while for a little extra effort. Maybe I should bring it up in next months ask cryptic.

Yeah, that's a good one for the cheap and most used commodities. 75 EC each.
Nothing there is over the value price.

So, unless you are hurting for EC, I'd not bother flying all over the quadrant.
Sometimes I think I play STO just to have stuff to rant about on the forums!

Would you dare mention to the throngs that the quartermaster in the rear compartment of the Tuffli cargo ship sells commodities at a significant discount?

Would love to... if someone would give me the prices. I don't have my own Tuffli freighter, and the Tuffli tribble is not very forthcoming on commodities.

I'm pretty sure the same freighter captains are in regulus sector for the klingons but its a bit of a further distance for them traveling from Qonos.

Bit old, but it's less about "hurting for EC" and more that the savings add up significantly when you're buying the stuff up by the hundred-thousands for Starbase work. Also, for some reason, the Ferrengi Lobes bonus does not work on sector-space traders.

Aw man, I hadn't been paying attention and was still flying around according to the earlier list.

So I guess I just have to lurk around Sol and grab a space trader, eh?

If you're at Sol, just head to the Kei system (it's SW of Sol on the map). Freighters tend to get 'stuck' there. It's a feature, not a bug
