"Only one way to find out!" Jones said, moving the ship to dock at the appropriate bay!

He was honestly quite surprised Wilnarr's boasting actually got them anywhere.

"Can we see about sorting out some stability before trying to inspect alien moss lifeforms?" Lucy was also suspicious about how they got in, but, whatever it was, they'd already stolen a ship so more crimes could always be levered to get them out.

Jones taxiied the ship into the primary docking bays, the traffic tightly controlled the closer they got to the station for obvious reasons. They were guided to a tertiary row of bays on the stellar side (the side of the station currently facing away from the planet) and was gently guided in on anti grav thrusters to docking clamps which gripped the ship to hold it steady, lowering it to the ground until it was safe to turn off the grav drive, in which the ship's gravity took over, the transition from one to the other was slight but noticeable to the occupants, feeling like a sudden jump one makes a misstep.

The comms chimed wherein a computerised voice notified them the docking procedure was complete and they could safely disembark.

Chroma wakes up after dozing off on the ship. She is one of those people who have the uncanny ability to sleep through a flight.

She grabs her Autodoc and scoots off.

Jones would head out onto the station and start looking for recruits! As well as ways for them to make MONEY!

Lucy popped out, rubbing her face. She was going to need to do some shopping to make sure the ship was properly supplied. Petty ATM crime should be able to pay for that much. Actually tho, she'd follow Jones, see what kind of crew they'd get. "We should try to fix up the shit a bit before recruits, right? No one decent is gonna want to ride on that piece of crap as it is now."

Wilnarr started following everyone else! He probably thought they were going to help him look for space raccoons or something.

Jones put out a notice for crew!

Or well, the local mechanics did. Turns out docking ships looking for new crew is a common occurrence on starports, so the process was automated. The mechanic put out the notice on the starport's system that the ship, the Bandwagon, was looking for crew. Interested parties on the starport will have their communicators pinged with the notice and will likely start showing up at the specified dock to try to get themselves recruited.

There was even a table and a few chairs off in a corner for the exact purpose which a few of the mechanics dragged over, laying the chairs out for the ship's current crew. Zigrund seemed to take a liking to his chair and put it on his shoulder. He roared approvingly.

[APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN! Post your application and when I close, all those who applied will be allowed to roleplay their characters as if they are being interviewed by the crew. Have fun with the consequences of that.]

Several Hours Months Hours that felt like months later, while the crew rested and the mechanics got to work on sorting out the ship, a ragtag bunch of raggamuffins and the dregs of the station lined up in front of the docking bay, vetted by station security before being allowed through.

They looked exactly as how one would imagine a bunch of stationdweller spacers to look like, desperate, raggy, vaguely unreliable and dying to get off of the station. None of them where obviously out and out dangerous otherwise the station would never have let them sign up to the station's crew ping system as potential crew, they would have gotten out to space the traditional way - Airlock cycling without a spacesuit.

They gathered up in a semi-formal formation in front of the nearest desk which the mechanics had pulled out of a corner for the occasion, evidently this was normal procedure for crew enlisting.

There was only so much space on the ship, who would the crew pick?

Chroma points at the obnoxiously teal mineral-looking person.

"They. Look like they have potential."

RE: [Rage at the Eclipse] - The First Phase [Applications now Open again!]
"They look like they're blind. If they can't even get dressed in grown-up clothes, how are they going to handle working for a rag-tag crew of misfits bumming about space. Let the poor sap get lucky with some actual ship." Lucy countered. "We need mechanics, not, children's party magicians. We don't know how our ship works so as many hands we can throw at it, the better."
"Don't get me started on Henchmen."

"I don't know, got good feelings about the teal person!" Shotgun announced.

"Well, let's see if they know things!" said Wilnarr, pointing to Elmas. "You! Do you know how fast a Rhygaxian Megaraptor can fly?"

Before Elmas could think of answering the question, a ragged and out of breath Tauroc stomped up to the gathered aspirants, evidently late to the whole endeavor, she took her place awkwardly to the side of the gathered group.

Zigrund roared cryptically in Space Bear.

Chroma also points at the formidable-looking bovid alien.

“They also look like. They have potential,” she curtly stated.

Honestly, Chroma just didn’t want to be the only nonhuman alien on board.

“Agreed! Like the look of her too!” Shotgun said. “Let’s interview them. Hey! Teal person! You first, what’s your deal?”
Quote
RE: [Rage at the Eclipse] - The First Phase [Applications now Open again!]
Oof. Starting out with the scorchers, eh?

Elmas pulls at their collar and gives a small bow, a polite smile following after. “Depends! Do you mean a Megaraptor from Northern Rhygaxia, or the south?”

THEN SOMETHING MORE GENERAL.

“Oh! Little old me?” A set of fingertips set themselves against her chest. “I’m a technomage - you’ll find none finer, sir! And an Adalim to boot!”
Quote
RE: [Rage at the Eclipse] - The First Phase [Applications now Open again!]
"Ah. Technomages, rare sight," Chroma said, writing down information on her hologram. "Plenty of arguments about combining technology and magic back at home. Boring arguments. Universe does not exist in a binary. My opinion."

"So what's your school of specialty." She pauses. "What pronouns do you use?"

Gunda brushes the sweat from her forehead.

"Hey! You guys looking for a pilot? Or a mechanic? I kind of need a job," she looks behind her, then back at the group. "Quickly."

"We could always use more help," Chroma says, matter-of-factly. "Co-pilots. A thing, yes? What is your name and your preferred pronouns."

RE: [Rage at the Eclipse] - The First Phase [Applications now Open again!]
Gunda seems a bit taken aback by the question on pronouns, looking down at herself and patting her chest and sides before looking forward again.

"Gunda, and I'm a woman so she if ye want to keep me onboard."
