Also remember to give “delusion: I worked with Chiki to mess with the ship in the name of la Quinta República” at least to one of them!

So Daymar has now given Fanaticism (Quinta Republica) to four officers. The first mates are off-duty and sleeping, so it may not work to continue this scheme with them. Any thoughts on how to handle this?

I still need to give someone the delusion they worked with Chiki on sabotaging the engines.

Hey! Day's been amazing with his performance!

Touching base, what's the "problem" if the first mates are sleeping? What would happen if someone recognizes Day? He has Zybo's permission, right? Perhaps he could wear a helmet with a balaclava, glasses or a face-mask (to cover himself). Aren't those fairly common?

Does Pacifica have a response to Hua's question?

Yes! I am waiting for Pacifica's results regarding the information she collected from Zybo's computer.

@ericthered: Perhaps I'm a bit confused, but did Daymar's actions to disable the engines ever actually take effect? From http://forums.sjgames.com/showpost.p...5&postcount=21 long ago, I understood it would take effect quickly.

They are the right shape. But you're right, if you can swap the pills as they give them to you could have swapped the pill anyways. There may be other ways to use the pills though...

That post gives a lot of different options for disabling the engine.

You chose the subtle route with no chance of being traced back to you, which takes a little while to build up and crash (otherwise they'd be able to just check who was at the trouble spot during the breakdown).

If you don't mind potential exposure, you can knock out the engine very quickly.

Okay, good to know, he might need to use the quick option with exposure - since he's already been exposed, to some degree, the relative increase in risk is minor.
