Interstar Credits

From Star Control - Official Wiki

Interstar Credits are the units of exchange used by the Melnorme in order to facilitate trade. Since all sales and purchases with the Melnorme are translated into Interstar Credits, they may be described as a type of currency. However, the Melnorme would disagree with this description as they claim to have abandoned currency among themselves long ago.

Fuel bought from the Melnorme can be "sold" at the Earth Starbase, creating an exchange rate of 1 Interstar Credit to 20 Resource Units; however, RU's cannot be converted back into Interstar Credits.
