"It is your patriotic duty to eat that slop." This is something that is watched closely.

To analyze disabling the grav plates, roll mechanic (starship) at -2. Also, when will he get a good look at the plates without Pothi? the hyper-drive he can sabotage while seeming to work on it, because its his job... the grav plates less so.
After a meal of "the slop", he complains to Pothi that he's not feeling well, and needs to hit the head. While there he's going to stick his finger down his throat to throw up. Pothi presumably won't want to join him, but even if he does Day will take long enough in the toilet that Pothi will head back to their bunkroom. On his way back, since they are right next to the bunkroom, he'll slip in to take a look at the grav plates. I've rolled Stealth to do that unnoticed.
