I've had a Argon Transport vessel lying around for ages now, I took on some passengers almost 6 months ago and asked the ship to fly round the universe, Now it's full of people still but i don't know who the people belong to.....
Or where they came from. But i really want to use my TP class ship, and i can't do any other missions with it unless i get rid of them.
What should i do? Eject them?

But wont ejecting them give me a bad credit rating?

And is it possible to do Transporter missions by automating it whilst i get into another ship and blast some Xenon?

    To fix the problem you have to jump to a Khaak sector, and eject them, it will be so far away, nobody will hear their screams, so your rep will be ok Twisted Evil

Don't know for sure, but shouldn't the answer be in your personal messages?

If you started a Tour of a Lifetime you should have gotten a message that they wanted to go home. This means you have to bring them back to the station you started the mission, usually being a Trading Station. The time the mission lasts is mentioned in the BBS-message (unlike the number of passengers) And you have to stay with your passengers. Once you change ships the mission if over and no money will be given.

Install cargo bay life support in a TS. Transfer the passengers to the TS. Eject the life support. Problem solved.

Do you have to take the same route back or can you go anywhere?

I tend to go round in a circle- taking a different route back to the one i took there.

They are Passengers not Slaves. You cannot sell them (anymore. This was fixed with V1.4 Sad ).

After you get the reply to take your Passengers back home, you have about the same time to get them back. I once was told I didn't get a reward because I was to slow to get home.

If you can get a TP, this can become a profitable enterprise. Its just not that exciting and sometimes hard to find the mission. Unfortunately TP-prices went up with V1.4.

Not the way I do them Smile - a few months ago I bought a few TP's & parked 3 of them (Manta, Hermes & Iguana) in each of the Trading Stations, just in case I find a well paid tour while I'm flying another ship. Doubt I'll ever make enough to cover the expense of buying that TP fleet but it is convenient.

You can transport most wares with any TP and the best one is the Manta with 1000 units of cargospace. You can trade along and visit every trading station in the sector. But as I mentioned in my previous post:
