if money is no object

Linyabel finds the bar while she's on Komarr, up late in Dr. Cheung's lab, debugging software and making sure it plays nice with his scanning equipment. She meant to go into the kitchenette for a snack, and... this.

An interrogation, a Bar-recommended stimulant, and some variously expensive transactions later, Linyabel has a scanner sitting on Bar's surface, whirring away, converting borrowed paper books at many pages a second into sensible electronic formats, and she is finishing up a plate of loaded savory waffles and a slab of goose and a pomegranate pudding for her snack-plus-added-stimulant-related-appetite, and she is reading a book that has already been loaded onto her pen.

The door opens.
A young woman walks in, looks around, grins, and sticks her head back out. A few minutes later she and another young woman walk into the bar.
"Hello!" says the first one.

"The first one inquired about taking home technology a bit more advanced than what they had for reverse-engineering after I told him I'd been doing that but Bar said anything obvious was too big for her to do."
