Daymar will again suggest a response, "We have sufficient security here for the moment. Commander Chaputhor has been gravely injured, it would be best to send a medical team here for him."

Off the radio line, he will let the sergeant know a medical time will be coming by and should be admitted. If the conversation on the radio seems to be over, he intends to start converting the surviving command centre crew.

Well I'm in the area. Let's take out auxillary control in case someone else thinks to switch over to their command. I'll leave three pair of guards up here, 1 for life support, 2 for the prisoners. Then I'll take the rest and head on to 17I.

I'll reconnoiter before security storms the area.

Well, looks like I overlooked something important. I'll try to hold the NCO at gunpoint just before security storms in.

Motive has a big stack of security and some armed volenteers, but no medical. Remember that they're trying to stop further sabotage of the hyperdrive core. The motive officer is satisfied by the responses, at least for now.



Lets see, that's how many folks? just about one section's worth, so 60 people.

six security down, leaving 12 with you.

Hua bumbs directly into one of the navigation crew coming around a corner. DX roll to keep her feet. They're still up. What does she do?

Correct, weapons are trained on the room.



Pacifica is on the floor, about 4 yards from the officers, with a laser riffle.



She can shoot the navigation officer, yes, but things are going down quickly here, so if you want an aim bonus, she will be giving him a turn to notice you or do something.

You know, this is one of the few times when a typo is ambiguous (bumbles or bumps).

There are 60 people in the command center in a single shift? That's...about three times what I was expecting. That's a lot of rolls. Just wanted to confirm that before I start rolling.

Yes, each section has 180 people spread in three shifts, and two sections (Gunnery, and Nav, Comm, and Sensors) work almost exclusively in the command centers.

Okay, "Nijothu" is going to start going through the command center, he tries to calm people down, "All right people, we want the same thing as you, to get you back to work, so please just cooperate and soon everything will be back to normal."

Savoir-Faire (Military)

3d6 <= 15
6 + 3 + 1 = 10 ... success

He will then work his way through the section, using Mental Surgery on each person. He intends to make two passes, as with the security force.

Okay, from the first 60 rolls he got one critical failure (rerolled with Luck), zero regular failures, and seven critical successes. At a guess, it probably worked on about 50 of the crew. He is then going to take five minutes to rest, and do it again.

He will try to do it in the same order, and I've mapped out the relative success for each roll for my own benefit to get a sense of how likely it was to take. 13, 22, 24, 29, 32, 34, 37, 48 are the ones I'm a bit concerned about, since they had margins of less than +6 on both rolls.

OOC: OK, Pacifica should be firing a gun (because that's the weapon she can handle). She will be shooting as many shots as the gun allows w/o recoil (I have not restored my books yet, but I believe there's no rec). No second tries here (IC of course LOL, if I need luck I may use it).

Shooting:
3d6 <= 14
3 + 5 + 2 = 10 ... success.

Damage:
3d6
3 + 5 + 2 = 10

There's never no recoil. Laser weapons generally have Rcl 1. If this is the TL10 laser pistol from the Basic Set, it has RoF 10 and Rcl 1, so you'll get one additional shot hit for each margin of success you have.
