Deep in interstellar space, a massive ship trundles on. A pinnacle of engineering of its kind, its destination is a new home. A home called Borgas IV, a habitable planet of the Borgas system. Will they reach their destination safely? Will doom bar their path? Who knows...

>[-] So, what are those science stuff you say you're good at? I don't know much except engineering.
we will find out as we go.

This is most important.

This is just gee whiz, but might be cool.

It was probably by cannibalism anyway.

Fuck you Harry, always trying to steal the glory, we all knew I was the better engineer.
>[-] Thaw
>[-] Express Thaw
Fuck Harry.
>[X] Mark his pod for future reference
Draw a dick on the pod.
>[X] Yer a wizard, Harry!
Also pop the pod for a sec, and draw a dick on Harry.

In lieu of a dick, a comical pile of poo will also be acceptable, as well as "I love cloaca" on his forehead.

[x] Thaw
We need a second engineer, right? The automated thawing only produces ONE engineer, so we need to thaw someone. Without medical staff on hand an express thaw is unwise, however.
No. 716370 ID: 5ad4a7

...wait, what happened to the previous skeleton crew's engineer? Can you ask the ship's computer where they went?
No. 716475 ID: c45b7e

express thaw. Sack tap him. Freeze. this ship seems to be a frat party.
No. 716617 ID: c45b7e

What can he do, and express thaw. we could send the other engineer off to repair other parts of the ship. Plus a solo player or spare party is both fun, and beneficial should something happen to us. *ominous*
No. 716619 ID: c45b7e

addendum* harassing the other engineer from the other suggestions is not mutually exclusive to my own.

For Harry, just mark the cryochamber for now. Figure out the extent of the damage, then assemble a crew. Maybe we could even access a list of personnel when we find access to a computer.

"So... you've met the other Heads before?" You ask Jan.
"Well, yeah. There's Captain Bordmann, the Captain; Val Dunbor, Head of Personnel; Yours truly, Head of Research; Mina Sanbora - you know her as the Head of Engineering; Kol Kelbor, Head of Security; and Prita Ribordi, Head of Medical. All of us answer to the Captain."
"Wait, let me get this straight. The Captain's first name is... Captain?"
"Yeah, but that ain't the weirdest name I've seen. Guy's a perfect fit for his name, though."
You pick an engineering pen from your kit.
"So how'd you get to be Head of Research?"
"Well, long story short, it involves nerds and introducing them on how to party. And studies that show good morale means better results." Jan beams with pride.

"Okay, so tell me more of the planet we're colonizing. Borgas IV, was it?" You ask, while marking Harry's pod for the future.
"Oh yes, it's a very nice planet! Fourth planet of the Borgas system, right in the habitable zone, got water, got primitive lifeforms. Basically a perfect environment for us. All the other planets and moons in the system are too gaseous, too cold, or too small for a colony."
"Primitive lifeforms? You meant alien germs?"
"Yeah, but nothing our nanites can't handle. You know, that thing you're injected with when you first entered the ship?"
"Oh, so that's what it is. I thought it was just, like, vaccine for space flu or something."
"In a way, yes, it's some kind of vaccine for space flu. ...What are you doing?"

"Why, marking Harry's pod for future reference, of course! If we need another engineer, we could just tell VIRA to unthaw the pod with the funny face."
"I get it, but... why draw /that/?"
"Well why not?"
"I dunno, man. Looks more like a rabid bord than a funny bord."
"Well let's just ask VIRA about it! Hey VIRA?"
You two waited for some time, but VIRA's familiar voice doesn't reply.
"That's weird, she's working a few moments ago."
"You sure?"
"Yeah. So there's probably something wrong with her, too. Dangit."
"Well her core is in Main Engineering, but her main control console is up at the Bridge. That's another stop we make on the fixapalooza."

>Where to next?
[] Stick with the plan, maintenance corridors to the Auxiliary Control Room.
[] Head straight to Main Engineering, through the maintenance corridors.
[] Head to the Bridge, which means you'll be going through some more Cryo-pod Bays, Medical Bay, Cargo Bay, and Security.

[x] Head straight to Main Engineering, through the maintenance corridors.
We were going to the Auxiliary Control Room to find a console to see what's damaged. Main Engineering has one for sure, which means going there will kill two bords with one stone, and since we're aware VIRA is damaged we will be heading to a known damaged location.

Main Engineering.

You're understaffed. You need the AI just to keep an eye on other things that might break or go wrong, and to give you reports on damage to fix, nevermind all the other functions she fulfills.
No. 741235 ID: 1cb64d

Don't call her "HoE."

Yeah, the AI is important, the head of research should have access too? Hopefully it hasn't shocked the doors or anything.

Try interrogating the AI on the way. Is it having problems, diagnostic stuff, current operating rules, etcetra.
No. 750684 ID: e65bff

We got something to record a memo in? If so, make up a to-do list.

How much of a detour is it heading to main engineering before the auxiliary control room? I'd guess not that far, since they're both accessed via the maintenance corridors.

Let's wake up Hal...GlaD.. i mean VIRA already, then she can deal with stuff and we don't have to move as much. Also she can point us to other problems that need fixing.

"Well, since we're going to fix things anyway, Main Engineering should have a console or two that shows what parts to fix, right?"
Jan smiles. "That's the spirit! I just happen to know a shortcut. Going through all the Cryo chambers is a hassle."
"Wait, a shortcut?" You ask as he stops by a maintenance door.
"And here we are. Maintenance corridors! I thought you engineers were supposed to use these?"
"I think so, but I just woke up out of Cryo - never went in them outside of virtual training."
"Well, this is your lucky day, then! Go on, take the first step! You ready?"

What were those, EYES?
"You okay there, Hugo?"

[] Wuss out, nope, nope, nope

Ask Hugo if there's supposed to be anything with little triangular clusters of LEDs resembling glowing sets of eyes in there, because if not, there's something in there with glowing eyes.

If there's some kind of space bug or rogue robot drones or something that has been breaking things, you can't fix things if you let yourself get ambushed in the dark!

You need a weapon, and the lack of weaponry on your self is alarming. Well, your tools look a bit like weapons, right? You scrutinize your precious tools for a while.
"Don't worry, Hugo! I got your back!"
Well at least if they're some kind of murder-machine robots, you can disassemble them, right?
You take a big breath

"Thaaat's the spirit!"
You sprint down the hallway, with Jan trailing close behind you. As you turn down a side passage, you see something!

1 - What is that vaguely metallic thing?
2 - What is that organic goop?
3 - Another bord! But hostile!

...aaaaand it lands on the floor where you used to be. A deep computerized voice hums, "Scream identified. Engineer Hugo Packagebord identified."
Then it switches to a radio-transmitted laugh. "Pffhehehehehahahaha! You should've taken a look at your face! Sheeeeit, that you, Hugo?"
Jan is not amused at your cowardice, however.
