A holo-cube with a message from a desperate person requesting immediate assistance. The fate of his galaxy is at stake.

A timestamp on the message indicates it was sent 200 years... in the future.

A star. In a box.

The sun of the Heckller system entered the initial stages of going red giant. For nearly the past century, the inhabitants, with the technological aid of the cyborgs from MXQ224i8-D, have been working in a remote part of the galaxy to shift the young star of a planet-less sytem into subspace and then shrink that subspace to a transportable size. The Heckllerians should have simply migrated elsewhere, but they are a proud and territorial lot; they like their spot in the galaxy.

The power requirements for containment are immense. The box is tied directly into the main power system of the station. All other cargo has been removed or delayed until this box departs. Life support is at minimum. The station must not be powered down for any reason. The transport ship must not be powered down for any reason.

The Heckllerians await delivery of their new sun in order to subspaceshrink their dying star, which will require transport to the stolen star's previous coordinates.

An unpowered stargate.

A mineature killer robot limited to stun. It thinks it can exterminate people, but has to keep stunning them over and over instead.

Janitorial supplies, and 1 of every item found in an ancient puzzly video game.

Shield generator.

Survey sample specimens from a newly discovered planet.

Walk in freezer. You're assured that all of the hanging meat is perfectly normal and permanently dead.

Young telepath whose parents have gone missing. The home planet will pay for her return, but she is currently having difficulty controling the projection of her thoughts, dreams, and emotions.

Group of pig-dwarves celebrating the final payday of their last job, by getting drunk and challenging each other to ever zanier feats of engineering.

Ambiguous goo. It is either resistant to scans, or avoiding them.

Aparently empty armored crate. The viewport reveals nothing other than scratch marks on the inside.

Starmap to a 'fracture in space'.

A siliconite, a small living rock that inhabits asteroids, feeds on radioactivity, and speaks by rasping its legs. This one is quite big for its species, a real treat for any xenobiologist.

Its other interesting side is that it endlessly repeats a string of nonsensical numbers and letters.

1 A unique sculpture forged from monomolecular foil in vacuum. If you cannot recreate interstellar conditions within your cargo bay, you'll need to haul it transported on the outside of your hull. Good luck upon re-entry!

2 A microscopic civilization bound for a safer place, as they are on the verge of advancing several tech levels during transport.

It's a case completely filled with packing peanuts. The peanuts are actually the larval form of a space moth which creates a beautiful fiber.

It's a case completely filled with packing peanuts. The peanuts are worthless but the case is made of real wood of a kind that can't be exported from its home planet.

It's a case completely filled with packing peanuts. Carefully examining things reveals that the case has a false bottom.

What's in the false bottom? Inquiring minds want to know!

I'm sure they will, that's what makes it a good hook.
