I found this channel awhile ago and think it is full of really great information of futurism/sci-fi concepts. He does have an accent and a speech impediment, so he can be a little hard to understand but you do get used to it and dang are the topics fascinating... I figured this may give you some inspiration Giger
Idea: Carter returns and needs us to ferry him out-system to a museum that is going to be buying that painting. Of course, Boss Whatshisname catches wind of this and desires revenge so dudes are sent after us. Hijinks ensue.

Idea: AJ is Unlucky, right? Well, it would definitely be really unlucky for him & Bella if she got a bad batch of birth control at some point down the road...
Idea: Want a roaring rampage of revenge at some point. Yeah, I know that this generally means something real bad happens to necessitate it, but I would kind of like to have an adventure down the road where AJ calls in all of his markers - Allies, Contacts, Patrons, Friends, etc. - to kick the crap out of someone because they done him wrong. While Bella would be the logical injured party, I can't exactly call her in as an Ally if she's injured so maybe ... Mish is hurt in some way and AJ finds out? Either way. Roaring rampage of revenge. I want other "bad guys" to hear about this and whisper warnings about how you need to Beware the Nice Ones...
Idea: I think we joked about this off-line, but I'm totally thinking Bella needs a sibling who is a spy or covert operative or something and ends up needing her help. Heck, that could be how you activate AJ's Dependent disad with Bella asking for his help. Just to make it really interesting, AJ would need to keep it a secret from the other members of the crew. Oh! Maybe it happens during the bank heist! Like, he needs to obtain some MacGuffin during the heist which complicates said heist (but doesn't ... hopefully blow it up.)
Giger and I discussed previously the idea of AJ discovering that Bella's sister (as portrayed by Chloe Bennet) being revealed to be a spy of some sort. This could tie into why the Spec Ops guys actually came looking for us and could also potentially be linked to JoJo (i.e., she was the "married Yakuza woman" who seduced him for ... reasons). I found this to be an amusing thought.
Tied to that, we could then have spooks end up using us because we're discreet and competent, which could then later lead to an Air America kind of scenario where her agency invests monies into the company so we can expand (legitimately) while still serving as a covert asset for them. In that regard, we could build toward one of Tulk's desires: to end up expanding DSD so we have an entire "fleet" of ships.
And also related to this, it would be amusing if AJ, the relatively law-abiding captain, becomes increasingly connected to pirate stuff to the point that he is (mistakenly) thought of as such (which should cause people who actually know to laugh hysterically at the notion.) Like, for example, he's seen talking to that pirate over there, and was recorded dueling with this pirate here, and is (inexplicably) defended by those two pirates over yonder, and so on, so everyone in positions of authority simply presume 'yup. He's a pirate.' This would lend the above-mentioned 'Air America' thing even more plausible deniability since no one would believe that the government is sponsoring a pirate ... okay, honestly, everyone would believe that but the point stands. And if AJ is in the limelight as the 'pirate,' this gives Tulk more shadows to lurk in. Not to mention, Bella will eat this up and just encourage it. And, of course, eventually we do have to end up doing a bit of piracy for some mission or op just to make it all perfect...
