The sergant nods, and starts grabbing pairs of men. Go ahead and make your rolls.

After this deck, might as well continue without disturbing the wall, then going on to the other after clearing.
Ok, give me another stealth roll for the next few decks down on the rear of the ship...

You mean these preparations?

She and the stealthiest crewman of her team will move first, from the direction that doesn't allow the enemy seeing them coming through the threshold.

Pacifica: Displacement (14-2) 10, Stealth (15+4) 14.

The rest will also do stealth.

Pacifica and the stealthy crewman will quietly and quickly lock one of the doors, each. (I would like to call for danger sense and exposition sense to pick the door that proves the safest to lock).

If the enemies charge, the remaining 4 crewmen will be within 3 yards of range from the doors (they get this close using stealth), 2 people pointing at each door with their guns. This distance is enough to eliminate range penalties and if somebody needs help locking a door, the crewmen could also charge and help (instead of shooting). The priority is not to shoot. But if enemies get out, then they shoot. The "gunners" are approaching from a direction that doesn't allow the doors to serve as cover for the enemies.
Be helpful, not pedantic
