What were the rest of you thinking, if you had ideas about this situation?
The Hero-class Stat Block has a Workshop in the Systems list. ISW defines a Workshop as having equipment and space enough for a single person to work, so I presume that Location 17 on the Deckplan (Lower Engineering) is the Workshop since it is the engineering space with a workstation. It also gives anyone attempting to repair the ship a +2 to their roll.

Quick note: I'm hoping to be able to take advantage of the Speculative Trading rules, however it would appear our crew is too squeaky-clean to do so. We need at least 1 person with Streetwise in order to find it. Pup (Can I call you Pup?), can I re-write my Merchant/party face to add that skill? Not sure what I'll take it from yet... but I'll find something.

By the way, that was a good call on this item:

And it's also good to get some use out of those earlier GURPS Traveller books, too! I have a number of them myself and look forward to occasionally pulling out a surprise from them. Heh!

Please do call me "Pup"! At this point you can certainly do that re-write, yes. I'm not so sure I agree with you on your assessment of being 'squeaky clean.' Things may look that way on paper, but then again, the reality may differ somewhat. To Paraphrase "Mrs. Gump", Forrest's mother: 'Squeaky clean is as squeaky clean does!'

Well right, but given how bat-crap crazy we are, we all apparently went to/belong in the same White Collar Psych Ward. :)

I think I would be well-within my prerogatives as GM to say: "Speak for Thyself, Oh Batty One!"

Hey, Silvester is quasi-sane. It's the captain that's messed up.

One more character to go still, and we can get underway!

And I'm pretty sure that not all of the posted characters are totally finished yet, but that's ok, too. Or we can wait until everything is finished for all characters. What say the players?
Oh, he been waiting at the back door for some time, looking for approval ... I pasted his stats into post #51. Perhaps I should have used a new post for his stats. Ill add his to the Crew Roster for easier review.

My two PCs are only waiting to be equipped.

We do need to make sure someone puts at least 1 point in Armory (Small Arms), Armory (Beam Weapons), and Armory (Armor) for the purpose of equipment repairs.
My Chief covers Armory (Small Arms).

Ive added Gear for the Doc. It is in the Crew Roster.

I slightly exceeded the 20% limit. For a born and longtime spacer the space suit might count as household gear, though ? If that is a problem, I can drop something.

As far as outstanding stuff is concerend, Ive jumped on the Smart Vacc Suit wagon - this seems to be the thing a spacer might carry around. There is a biosniffer from the ISW equipment list - Ive added the desciption. This seems to be the right kind of thing for a nosy medic and biologist to possess ...
