By clue 3, the reward for Count Vladiy was 10,000 stellars more than that
for the person Steve Starcatcher caught on Rendezvous Station, whose capture
brought 10,000 stellars more than the counterfeiter's; while by clue 6,
Steve earned 10,000 stellars more for bringing back Brxk Brkx than he did
for nabbing the embezzler. Between the two clues, either all Five Most
Wanted are named or there is some overlap. Since, from the introduction,
Steve received a different bounty for each of the Federation Bureau of
Investigation's Five Most Wanted criminals, the only possible overlaps
between the two clues are that Count Vladiy is the embezzler or that Brxk
Brkx is the counterfeiter. In either case, if we combine the two clues
and assign the lowest 5,000 stellar reward (clue 1) to the fourth criminal,
we would have bounties of 5,000, 15,000, 25,000, and 35,000 stellars, a
total of 80,000, equal to the actual total in reward money in clue 1 and
leaving nothing for the fifth criminal's capture. So, between clues
3 and 6, all Five Most Wanted are given: Count Vladiy, the being taken on
Rendezvous Station, the counterfeiter (3), Brxk Brkx, and the embezzler
(6). Either the counterfeiter or the embezzler earned Steve 5,000 stellars
(1). If the counterfeiter did, then the being captured on Rendezvous
Statio had a 15,000 and Count Vladiy a 25,000 stellar rewardsumming to
45,000 stellars and leaving 35,000 (1) for the two in clue 6. So, Brxk
Brkx would have brought 22,500 and the embezzler 12,500. However, there
is now no way for 4 to work, since no figure is double another. Therefore,
the embezzler's capture earned Steve Starcatcher 5,000 stellars, with
Brxk Brkx's capture netting 15,000 (6), a total of 20,000 stellars. The
60,000 stellars remaining (1) for the three in clue 3 would equal X for the
counterfeiter, X + 10,000 for the criminal caught on Rendezvous World,
and X + 20,000 for Count Vladiy; solving, 3X + 30,000 = 60,000, or
X = 10,000. Steve got 10,000 stellars for bringing the counterfeiter to
justice, 20,000 for the being found on Rendezvous Station, and 30,000 for
Count Vladiy. By clue 4, then, Brxk Brkx must be the arms dealer, and Steve
captured Count Vladiy on Eden IX. Harry Putney is the accused counterfeiter,
and Steve took the bank robber on Rendezvous Station (5). By elimination,
Count Vladiy is wanted for piracy. Jacc the Hobba is the accused bank
robber (1) and Aleeta the embezzler. By clue 2, Brxk Brkx was caught on
Moon 135271. Harry Putney was hiding on New Carthage and Aleeta on Hermes
(7). In sum, Steve Starcatcher brought back the FBI's Five Most Wanted
for the following stellar rewards:
 Count Vladiy, piracy, Eden IX, 30,000
 Jacc the Hobba, bank robbery, Rendezvous Station, 20,000
 Brxk Brkx, arms dealing, Moon 135271, 15,000
 Harry Putney, counterfeiter, New Carthage, 10,000
 Aleeta, embezzler, Hermes, 5,000
