[Lambda] A small adventure begins...
You should ABSOLUTELY buy that Athena ship. Just trust me on that one. Maybe your other crewmembers will have some money for fuel. The remote controls are probably a bad idea though, try to get rid of them.

Your head is filled with the thoughts of everything you could and should buy. By the time you shake the idea and come to your senses, you find yourself at the diner.

You're not even sure you can drink this without looking suspicious. Oh god everyone is going to know you're a clockwork and--
You put a hand to your face..er, screen. No, no, you have to overcome your anxiety if you want to get a crew.

That's one down. You can do this. You see a few more people in the diner, but decide to talk to a kaikian who's sitting alone.

Well, you only have one crew member so far. You'd try to talk to some of the people in groups, their conversations just don't end. You could look for more people outside, or go pick out a ship. Or do something else. There's a good deal you can do in a space station as big as this one.

No, you know they could never leave. You know how metaparxi employment works.

That old thing? You'd nearly forgotten about it, but you gave it to lost and found the day after you started your job.

There are no seedy places in a nice space station like this, but you take a walk around and manage to spot a few people who didn't seem to be busy.

There's an aftik, a geptad, a mialcsem, a tourist, a generic (who may be a specific, you don't know), and a geckrechaun who seemed to be running a homemade store on a cardboard box. Who should you talk to first?

You have no idea how that worked. Or if it worked. You hope that she knows what she's getting into.

Well that answers that question. As you make your way back to the shipyard, you pass by the geck. They seem too young to be out on their own, so they're probably someone's pet.

Your walk is otherwise uneventful. Once at the shipyard, you ask about the Athena ship. Specifically if it comes with fuel. The front desk manager says that it's one of the few ships for sale that's fully fueled, the others all happening to be out of your price range.

The time is now for your final choice.

This is not the original Juddy. We made a deal because we use the same username, and I own this account now. I am the owner. It is me. Totally worth giving up a reddit account with high karma for a forum account with adventures I read

You decide you have to have the Athena ship. Even if it only leaves you with enough money for a bag of chips...

Surely someone on your new crew will have some money, right? You hope so. You hope Fortuna isn't very far. And most of all, you hope it can fix this mess.

On such a fancy space station like this, you're not surprised to find the purchasing process completely automated.
SELECT ITEM FOR SALE
ITEM SELECTED: ATHENA SHIP. CONFIRM PURCHASE?
PLEASE INSERT ID

75000p spent. 100p remains on Lambda's card.
You're now marked as the owner of this ship. You pick up the remotes from the front desk.

You ask Coral (of course you remembered to ask her name on the walk here) to go collect any personal items she may be taking with her. She woops and scampers off. Now time to have a talk.

The Athena hugs you sharply and tightly, picking you up off the ground for a moment that seems just a little too long.

Lambda gained a new crewmember: Athena v36.

You find the crew rooms to be furnished, all 5 in fact. You also find furniture in the common area, control room, and storage room (it's just industrial shelves). You notice a closet, but Athena doesn't seem to want you to go inside. She says that's her room and you feel kinda bad for her, having to live in a closet and all. In the storage room, you find some laser rifles and life support devices, enough of each for a crew of 5.

Evi returns with 10 meat rations, 2 fish rations, 3 generic rations, 5 scrap, and 4000p he insists you take. Coral gets her room set up.
4000p added. 4100p is on Lambda's card.

Now time to explain to the crew why this Athena has no remotes and where you're all going.
