Synopsis for "The Qigly Affair (Part II of IV): Tanks for the Memories"
Arriving at Planet Vurkan, Lobo and Jonas entered the corrupt and violent Dagma City run by the Pan-Galactic Mob and corrupt the Vurkan Police Department. Upon landing, they are stung with a 1,000 cred "landing fee" which Jonas begrudgingly paid. Lobo whispered a secret to the officer in exchange for a tip on how to locate Qigley. The officer pointed them in the direction of the stool pigeon charity show.
At the Dead Boys hideout, Morte Fatale hired a delivery service to return the mobster corpses to the Council of Dons, tipping the driver 100 credits not to squeal. The nervous Qigly questioned Fatale's actions and was knocked unconscious for his trouble. As Jug and Koody rigged the building with explosives, Fatale checked Bloodshed and Bloodstain's progress digging into the sewers.
Lobo and Jonas attended the Stool Pidgeon Charity Bungee Jump on a bridge over the warehouse district. Not interested in talking on their day off, Lobo had to motivate them in his own way. With two informants turned to pulp, 'Bo weeds out Doolie the Stoolie who tried to invoke "omerta." Lobo dragged him out of sight before returning shortly after with the information and Dooley's 'scalp,' despite him being bald.
Quietus and Murder were stalled at Dagma City Spaceport customs. Declaring their weapons and bounty hunter status, the two are still hauled away to be tortured. Seems somebody warned and officer that two men fitting their description would arrive to assassinate the Council of Dons. They are released from Police HQ, but left a parting gift for the inconvenience.
A delivery arrived at the Pan-Galactic Mob Headquarters where a meeting of the Council of Dons was taking place. Inside one of the crates was the corpse of Vinnie Hood, with an extortion note asking for 100 million credits or Qigly would be handed over to Vril Dox of L.E.G.I.O.N. Don Alduc asked the delivery guy where he picked up the crates, to which the courier opened his envelope, explaining there was a tip inside to keep him quiet, but upon inspection was really an explosive.
The information that 'Bo had been given wasn't as helpful as expected, seeing as every building in the warehouse district was owned by Boulting Bros. The rumble of the Mob's heavy tanks driving by however led the way to right warehouse. Commandeering the last tank, Lobo and Jonas blasted their way through the others. The Mob reached the hideout first, not finding the Dead Boys - who had tunnelled into the sewers - but the explosive trap they left behind instead. With the safe house destroyed, the Mob then focused their attention (and fire power) on the hijacked tank.
- The sign above the Police HQ reads, "Magda City." It's unknown if this is a mistake or a separate suburb of Dagma City.
- The police officers bear a "VPD" emblem, (Vurkan Police Department,) implying that it is a global police force.
