On Tiros II, the corrupt Starfleet officer Commander Solomon Kane arranged to purchase a large quantity of Curial Dust, a narcotic, from a pair of merchants. When the deal fell through, Kane stabbed one merchant and stole the drugs for himself. The surviving merchant later stepped forward to report the crime.
A local court tried Kane for murder but after the mysterious disappearance of the merchant and a number of other irregularities, he was acquitted. Sometime after, two of the three judges involved were jailed for accepting bribes. (FASA RPG module: Orion Ruse)
