Your influence shifted Ellie's perspective. She finally admitted - albeit grudgingly - that she just might need other people. Sometimes.
With a steady income from the life insurance payouts, she was finally able to afford a ship of her own. She hired a small crew and flew supply missions to communities on the fringe.
Some of them were even legal.
