Reminder on the actual jump procedure:

Looks like Jayral and Liz are babysitting the ship and everyone else is going down to the planet.
Hmm.

  • Chuzu-Che Service of His Imperial Majesty - They are reliable and offer exactly what it says on the tin. Comfort is limited, although the vessel personell is easily intimidated by high rank unless there is someone of higher rank oboard the same ship.
  • Bunko's Bargain Barges - Hailing from the Plutocratic League of West Quarhe, they rely on advertising extremely low base rates while charging you through the nose for luggage, catering and any other "luxury" hidden in the fine print. They also only travel once a week and tend to overbook their seats, stranding any excess passengers until next week. Only recommended to the desperate and the clinical misers.
  • Golden Star Flights - Overpriced luxury taxi service for those who don't know better, or want to flaunt their wealth. Offer easiest the best quality though, with the sky and and most importantly your wallet being the limit.
  • Johannson's Valkyries - Reliable, but very kill-or-cure with drastic acceleration and deceleration, bad food, unfriendly service and the personell leaving choice words about panty-waisted civvies if customers complain.

Aside from the ship owner's papers, you should decide now what gear to take to the starport.

Note that the law level on Quarhe is very restrictive at Law Level 7. Melee weapons and stunners are the only legal weapons.
The starport is Imperial territory at Law Level 1, and you can store items that are illegal planetside there for a fee if you think that you need to access them dirtside, but you can get into a bad jam if you take them past the gates.

Where's information on the law about high TL equipment that I saw someone talking about?

It's on p.176 in MGT1 core under the technology column. A rule that is often not enforced, but often will be for body armor and the like if the planetary authorities don't like you or just consider you as an easy target to be fleeced for a local penalty fee.

When the restrictions are enforced, how do they interact with cybernetics?

Law enforcement is very unlikely to recognize cybernetics for what they are, nor do they have access to scanners capable of detecting them. You'll be fine.
