Iron Republic Days - management?!

Trying to work through this (and deal with, I think, some intermittent bugs)… input/commentary on what exactly I should be aiming for are welcome :-). It’s clear that each iteration of shore leave causes a change in the ‘Days’ variable. Thus far it has been as high as 24 with nothing very interesting happening. I saw a post noting that at 16 (presumably there’s a loop-branch back there somehow?) Blue Scintillack is available via a special report… what else should I know, and is there an approach I am missing? :) Thanks![li]

Thanks. I had held onto my Iron Republic report from a previous trip, which was apparently the issue.
