It is not pracitcal to have the captain and engineer/doc/XO also double up to gain an extra high passage stateroom, because crew quarters are on the mid deck while passenger staterooms are on the upper deck. Having "civilians" roaming the crew areas is a bad idea and will invite accidents, so it is not recommended. However, if you REALLY want the extra ticket sales, I guess you can see what happens....
Ah, right. Good point. I hadn't looked closely at the deck plan.

According to my calculations, hauling the 77-dT load of raw materials the two parsecs to Prometheus will bring in a shipment fee of $800 per dT, or $61,600. There are no passengers available for this trip, since the BTN is just 6 [2.5+4.0-0.5]. I rolled for additional freight on the trade volumes table (2d-10) and got a negative number for the result, so that rounds to zero additional freight.
I think it's $800 per dton per parsec. That's how I got $123,200. ISW will be more than workable, I'll be the last one to complain about getting to charge more money. :)

The next scheduled leg of your journey, from Prometheus to Ninkhur Sagga with 30-dT of medical supplies is a 10-parsec trip, and no additional freight bound for Ninkhur Sagga is available on Prometheus. However, because of the urgent need for the medical supplies, a premium rate is being paid of $2,750 per dT, or $82,500 total freight fee from Prometheus to Ninkhur Sagga.
Sounds good to me. I figure since we're dealing with a scientific outpost that this is probably cargo which we're being requested to carry by the merchant marine and they're gonna set whatever rate they want.

So, over the course of the enxt 12 weeks, the Hiawatha is scheduled to make at least CR61,600 + CR82,500 = CR144,100. Plus any additional cargo and/or passenger(s) you are able to pick up between Prometheus and Ninkhur Sagga. In fact, your first stop after Prometheus will be 1926 Barnard, and you are already scheduled to take two High Passengers and an additional 2-dT of freight from Prometheus to Barnard, a distance of one jump for a combined fee of CR8,600.

Oh, and for now let's use the cargo/passenger rules in ISW rather than Far Trader. If this proves unworkable we'll re-visit the issue later, but let's give it a shot for awhile, ok?
Alright, sounds good to me. I would like to roll on the cargo generation tables from Far Trader to detail the type of cargo and how it is packed. I think that's more interesting than just carrying Acme Standard 'Genero-Goods' brown boxes.
