Alright, I read the rules page on arresting, but I'm still a little confused. I have some NPCs on my ship that were there when I bought it, and I'd rather like to remove them. Who should I contact to get the arrest privs for them?
I'm in the Lexrol system of Trax, which is controlled by Alissma, but I don't think that will work because they're not a government.
If you make them over to a faction, join that faction and get arrest privs to move them. Alternatively head to a region where a gov/security/bounty hunter (and possibly mercs) control and see about getting A/E privs - then you don't have to worry about who owns the NPCs to A/E them.
