[Rage at the Eclipse] - The First Phase
RE: [Rage at the Eclipse] - The First Phase
Chroma, realizing she wasn't particularly good at hacking or talking with artificial intelligences, is going to throw her Autodoc drone at the droid.

RE: [Rage at the Eclipse] - The First Phase
The autodoc drone clanked against the droid as it arose from its seat and promptly began trying to perform surgery on the droid.

The droid objected to this sternly.

There was now a robot fight in the cockpit.

"OI! Stop beaking up the autodoc!" Jones yelled, rushing into the cockpit.

He slammed the barrel of his shotgun into the defective droid, point blank with the angle of fire pointed away from the cockpit's sensitive systems and the autodoc, and fired. Didn't want collateral damage. Jones was surgical in his shotgunnery.

Jones blew off half the droid's head without hitting the controls of the cockpit!

One half of the windowscreen was cracked by a stray pellet however, they'd have to close the bulkhead over it when in space.

Jones was fine flying blind so long as he had an intact console.

Which he did.

Besides, the viewscreen had been cracked by a single shotgun pellet. He felt a little safer with a bulkhead over that son of a bitch.

"Ey, somebody get this droid carcass out of here. I'm going to fly us out of this mess," Jones said, getting into the pilot's chair, closing the bulkhead over the cracked glass, and starting up the ship.

He was going to fly them off-world as quick as possible, flying evasively to avoid getting blown to hell.

Wilnarr headed to the cockpit with his rifle in hand, after presumably closing the ramp. "I heard a shot! What's going on up here?"

RE: [Rage at the Eclipse] - The First Phase
"We went up here to check the cockpit, droid saw us, droid freaked out, Chroma sent her drone at it, the droid started beating up the drone, I shot the droid, now I'm flying us out," Jones summarized cheerfully.

Lucy was sweeping the rest of the ship. She paused at the sound of a gunshot...Okay, just the one, probably fine, and continued. She was also partly looking for escape pods... just in case Jones was just a crazy maniac with delusions of grandeur.

RE: [Rage at the Eclipse] - The First Phase
There was no escape pod, there was, however an emergency release... which separated the cockpit from the rest of the ship.

Leaving the cockpit section with no means of propulsion. And the part with the engine no means of interacting or controlling it. Neither had a distress beacon. to top it all off the release hatch was position in such a way, that whoever released it would be exposed to the vacuum of space.

Who designs ships like this!?

RE: [Rage at the Eclipse] - The First Phase
If the guy who owned this ship was the one who'd designed it, Lucy felt less bad about stealing it from him. Fuck this guy!

Maybe the cockpit was the escape pod...That needed someone to die in order to use it. Sheesh. That made the most sense to Lucy, in a still-insane-assholish way. She walked into the cockpit. "Alright, no one pull that red release switch unless you want to die in space and-." She looked at the droid. And the sealed bulkhead. And about. "...Uurgh!" She said with clear sudden disgust at the situation, and she started taking the ruined robot out of the cockpit. Maybe she could salvage the poor thing.

Apart from the head wound, the robot still had a mostly functional, if badly maintained body, The head unit may be salvageable but the CPU and processors were likely a complete ruin, if there was any data on the droid, it was irretrievable now.

Jones was still doing his best to pilot them the hell out of there.
