"Baby Milk Eggs"

Which is, of course, a "flop-beast" transit node in chronogenic suspension. Touching it will cause the player to trade places with an enraged flop-beast—the party is now in combat while the player is at a very swanky (but very alien) cocktail party in another dimension. There may also be some amount of hilarity/horror when it comes time to draw "keys" from the "fishbowl".

You know, like Costco milk jugs.

I'm going to riff on this one, because it's fun.

The brains of several very wealthy individuals, packed in functioning suspension containers. They're on their way to Jackson's Whole for stupendously illegal brain-transplant operations. The rich guy gets a clone made and leaves it to grow up for a few years of accelerated growth. When the clone matures, they pull the clone's brain out and replace it with the old brain of the wealthy inheritor.

The clone's brain then becomes medical waste.

(I'm not sure this works. Why pack and send just the brain? Why not just get on a ship and travel there?)

Because the more cogs there are in the machine the more likely the players' wooden shoes get wedged in good 'n tight.

Great ideas. I called them "replacement" because I figured maybe once your brain gets all worn out, you have it removed and drop in a replacement. Completely reliable! These are proven to be top quality brains, just the sort of thing you'd want in your head! Available in bulk if needed.

A heavily customised shipping container (3m x 4m x 10m) which is a fully self-sustaining factory complete with adjoining dormitories populated by highly intelligent and dexterous creatures each about the size of a Lego mini-fig. Due to their extensive knowledge of xenobiology, they are able to develop and produce top-of-the-line, implantable medical devices and prostheses. They relocate their entire community (using only the highest rated cargo vessels from reputable transport lines) rather than merely shipping their products because they insist on being "on-site" with their clients in order to ensure the highest possible quality. Their contract details will include factory placement overlooking one of their client planet's locations of natural beauty and no brown M&Ms.

This container is accompanied at all times by a small group of heavily armed & armoured, hulking figures of unknown species and origin. They defer only to, and communicate exclusively with, the Administrative Triumvirate of the factory complex. While the complex itself is more than adequately protected from all but the most extreme space-faring considerations, any physical threat is met instantly with deadly force by this ever-vigilant squad. While in transit, they ring the complex and appear to take no sustenance. Much bar-room speculation surrounds the possible link(s) between this elite squad and their diminutive associates.

This guy who claims that the Empire's secret police are after him, and he needs to get away. He's desperate for passage and he'll pay big money for transit to another star system.

He is, however, delusional. He's a mental patient. He's rich enough, if he can get access to his accounts, but his family and the local cops are looking for him to take him back to the mental ward so he can get the help he needs.

Nothing.

Not "empty space", not "perfect vacuum", not even "ultimate absence"—it is an aberration in the fabric of spacetime, an extra, focal boundary of the universe, a reality-protecting pearl enrobing a blasphemous irritation. This is God's motherfucking blindspot. In a box. It's stuck here due to insufficient postage.

But there are two addresses...
