If we predict the subject to be FRIENDLY:
--Try to get their attention, tell them to hush, whether by body language or a long 'ssshhh'. When they're quiet, proceed from there.

If we predict the subject to be AGGRESSIVE:
--We should probably just go, the bugs will come for him on their own. Check back later and see what happened.

If we predict the subject to be DELUSIONAL:
--Sneak up behind and restrain them, keep them from yelling by keeping your hand over their mouth. Calm them down by shushing them. Proceed from there.

We hope the subject is friendly..

This is why you do not leave a downed gunship alone! They have room for specialized crewmembers who can repair an entire ship in hours!

Bad news: it looks like your eyeball and the left side of your body are fried. Luckily your limbs are still attached, and they seem usable.

They know you're here, you need to run while you have the chance! Savior can distract the gunship easily (not to mention that blast missed but the splash damage was effective against biotics), but you need to leave while you have the chance!

Or surrender. Whatever you do, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DESTROY THE ACTIVE FLYING HARBINGER OF DEATH. If your buddy's psychosis acts up, take his gun and tell him that this is not the time for honorable combat, this is the time to run from the giant dishonorable ray beam of death!

YOU ARE ALREADY INJURED, YOURSELF. The damage you have sustained is from the INSIDE, OUT. You require a set of nutrients and vitamins ON THE INSIDE so that you can PREVENT YOUR DEATH.
Quincy's wounds are EXTERNAL and can be halted with BANDAGES. In lieu of bandages, the SEAT BELT should suffice.
>what else do you require from this ship?! It appears to be fully intact!
How's the gyro-stabilizer? Aside from that, we'll need some wires, just as a precaution.
