Make sure to keep an eye out for introductions from contacts you already have, as they are one of the best tools to getting contact types you specifically want.

Also, each Job provides a set of Talents which give your crew abilities, ranging from shooting bad guys in the knees to more easily traversing the stars. Especially, however, some jobs have talents which give them the unique ability to obtain new leads about Contacts. Below you will find a table of the current talents that introduce contacts.
