Pothi and Daymar are escorted up to the officer's quarters. Pothi is very confused "What's going on? do you know why they want us?"


Zybo and Pacifica meet them at the door to the officer's quarters. Zybo then leads everyone into his office, where the four of them stand in a nine by nine room with a desk and two chairs (Block F, level 10, if you want to see the floorplans).



"My assistant here tells me you know about some sabotage going on in the ship. I'm anxious to find and eliminate these dreadstormers. What clues who they could be do you have?"

"Hello, sir. As I believe Pacifica has been telling you, I have suspicions that someone has been sabotaging the hyperdrive. Pothi, here, and I maintain those drives, and there have been fluctuations that could force us out into normal space. We haven't confirmed who did it, but there's someone in your crew that could be responsible, Chiki Buzoku. She's been caught a number of times out without her buddy. Pacifica, do you have anything to add?"

As Daymar enters the office, Pacifica mentions Chiki Buzoku; she elaborates about her infractions in the ship, which might frame her of working against the mission. And once Daymar & Zybo have their exchange, Pacifica asks for permission to speak, adding:

If you allow me sir, the crucial piece of information at the moment is not the fact that Buzoku might be a Dread Stormer (or a subject under their influence), the relevant matter here is the potential issues the ship’s engine might have, that actually involve her, which these fellows could detail to you.

Pacifica's fast-talk (Zybo & Daymar):
3d6 <= 13
1 + 3 + 3 = 7 ... success

Zybo is listening carefully to everything the two dreadstormers are saying. Pothi seems amazed at how much Daymar knows.



What will you try to achieve in this conversation/ meeting?

They discuss an officer that they saw Chiki with. Daymar says that he didn't get her name... but he did see the face, and he thinks he would remember the face if he saw it.



Zybo is very shocked an unnerved by this, and reaches into a drawer to pull out a photograph. Its a shot of all the officers in the ship. Zybo asks which officer it was.


The faces are sort of small, so you could possibly pick a few that look similar to each other. The officers are organized by section, and wearing full dress uniforms, so you can identify the position and rank of each officer.



Who do you pick?

Daymar looks carefully at the photographs, and tries to find as many as he can that have a passing resemblance to each other. "The officer could have been any of these," pointing to several who look similar, "is there any way I could see them in person? These images are so small, it's hard to tell which one it was." He does his best to look earnest and like he's trying to be helpful.

Rolling IQ: success by 6!

Daymar points to six different officers who could have been the "culprit". Somehow, none of them are section leads, just mates:
  • Lieutenant Jokuchi, Lasers 2nd mate
  • Lieutenant Chojo, Shields 1st mate
  • Lieutenant Jivithi, Motive 2nd mate
  • Lieutenant Vibibu, Life Support 2nd mate
  • Lieutenant Nichapu, Missiles 1st mate
  • Lieutenant Vinobi, Navigation 2nd mate
1st mates are currently sleeping. Second mates are currently off duty in their "Evening".

Commander Zybo says "We'll start with Vinobi. He's the one I know best. What is the best way to have you see him? I think he's in his quarters right now."
