This is the error I get when speaking to Elayne Croft (Planet Gand, city of Arakeen, position 1,21), after he accepts my application for a transport ship to take me into orbit to board my assigned ship. My credits have not been deducted by the amount he states the service will cost after he accepts the offer.
Should I search for another NPC with shuttle services? Or is this a bug that hasn't been fixed yet? This is harder than I thought it would be to find the right NPC, because it takes hours of time traveling the city talking to each NPC beyond scanner range and finding out one at a time who can help. Am I using the right strategy to get to my assigned ship? I hope I don't have to travel to another city, because the nearest city seems to be surrounded by ocean!
