Hmm perhaps I should add a "perisbable" value (weeks until spoiled)

Mail... interesting...

  My game also has passengers, if you have one or more passenger modules

I would probably use the larger catagory.. "foodstuffs" for example

Planets ban random items too, and you stand a small chance of being
"inspected" - if so your banned items will be confiscated, you may
be allowed to pay a "fine" instead though

Or pehaps you may be offered "Inspection Insurance" on landing?
