I'm posting this because you contacted me on steam.
Deshawn Ibbitson owns the ship. I hired him to take me to (I think) Earth. He took my money and the money is gone from my credit balance. I am in his ship. I can find him at all his usual locations (bar, place of work), but do not understand how to actually get him to take me to the agreed upon destination. I can strike up additional conversations and ask him to take me to other places, although I no longer have enough money to hire him a second time.
