Hangar 19 where the vessel Starlight hopper is parked
Tor successfully grants the team access to the hanger. Silias and Kavita move towards the ship. They immediately are faced with a human and goban exiting the ship. They recognize silas and kavita from the bar. Silias runs toward the human and punches him square in the face.
Suddenly, I hear an alarm. I send coms to Tor “What was that alarm”?
He informs me that Silas and Kavita have found combat in the hangar with the ships crew, and that he activated an alarm state on all hangar doors to act as a distraction. I ask Tor if I should go to hangar 19 to help out. “Nah, they’re fine”. So, I monitor coms channels and head to the flight deck of the Rapture.
As a true believer, Tor gains root access to the starport systems. He creates enough of a distraction to allow Silas and Kavita to infiltrate the Starlight Hopper without alerting the starport security team.
Silas and Kavita subdue the crew. They search for the hyperdrive bypass core of the ship.
Tor asks for the make and model of the ship in order pull up schematics for the ship. Not knowing either, I recommend to Tor that he might be able to find it on the ships manifest within the starport system logs.
Using the newly ‘found’ schematics, Kavita is quickly able to to find and secure the hyperdrive bypass core.
I run down to the tarmac, and engage the tarmac crew. I convince them to lend me use their starport golf cart, and throw them a few creds to take themselves and the rest of the crew to the starport bar.
Tor remotely opens hangar 19 and 93 bay doors. I cart over to Silas and KAvita while every bay door in the star port opens one at a time. They hop on with the new core, and we drive back…as each door closes one at a time.
As Kavita and Silas carry the core up the ramp of the Rapture, I notice a synthetic, 2 humans, and a dolmerant enter our bay. They are trying to be sneaky as they move. Tor activates fire suppression systems within the hangar, and I head to the flight deck.
I do a pre-flight, warm up the engine, and start my crawl towards the starport gate. As we do so, I hear two loud “clunks” like something hit our hull. Two of the intruders have managed to invade our ship. The kitak heads toward the intruders near the main door. I pull on the sticks to get us into orbit.
The kitak proceeds to dismantle the synthetic invader and toss him out of the airlock. The kitak comes back on board and hands Tor a ‘black box’. Kavita tries to physically open it, but has no luck. Silas seems to remember rumors about tech like this. Super secret, and super encrypted.
Tor gives the device a look. I head towards Crux, but remain in orbit. Silas attempts a spacewalk to remove whatever devices were attached to our hull.
It takes quite an effort for Tor to eventually open the device. It contains a nav chip with the coordinates to Mars in to Sol system, as well as a message to the crew in hangar 19 that specifies to NOT let the kitak get to Mars.
With the coordinates set, we start our run to Mars
