An explosion rocks the Star Saber as Aiakos enters the hanger bay. You can see the few larger ships take off, leaving you with a derelict ship your previous crew had recovered during a raid as the last ship in the bay with a hyperdrive. The mechanics still hadn't finished many of the repairs but she'll have to do. So far everything had gone according to the hastily planned escape, you just hope Tarn has managed to get the tractor beam knocked out of commission too or this will be a short trip for you and the others.

The pack of mutinous crew that were on on your tail after setting the charge to knock out the ships weapons, have not yet found you in the hanger bay.

No time to waste Aiakos makes a run for the fighter, jumps in as fast as she can and starts eagerly flipping the power switches.

Please start, please start, please start, please start...

The ship tries to power up but then Woowoowoooowooooooooo. It is then you notice an odd astromech that you flew past to get to the main controls. It has completely disassembled the power control panel and continues to pull things apart even as you gaze in its direction.

Aiakos turns toward the droid, as much as the pilot seat allows her to: Hey! Put that back! We've got to get out of here!

"LISTEN HERE YOU STUPID SACK OF SHIT. DO YOU KNOW WHAT GOES INTO REPAIRING THESE SHIPS?"

A droid on the cieling, tinkering with a number of wires leading into the hardware, wheedles and boops out swears in binary.

"MY ASSISTANT AND I ARE DOING OUR DAMNDEST TO DO OUR JOBS AND GET YOUR SPACE GARBAGE OPERATIVE. WE'RE WORKING WITH SUBSTANDARD PARTS ON A DERELICT VESSEL WITH SHOT CONTROLS AND POWER MANAGEMENT."

Returning to its work, the foul-mouthed droid began swapping around the items on his multitools before taping down the wires and sparking them together.

"SO PLEASE, CHANGE YOUR TAMPON AND BAR THE DOORS."



OOC: MECHANICS CHECK.

Taken aback that binary could even be used to convey such profanity, Aiakos' hand almost reaches to the blaster pistol. Almost. Remembering her situation she decides she has nothing to lose by postponing dismantling the droid for a bit and decides just to frown at it menacingly for now. If your self-preservation protocols haven't been wiped off by old-age and crappy maintenance, you WILL get this rust bucket flying or you'll find yourself the owner of a few new holes that weren't there by design. Pretty soon this hangar will be crawling with 'shoot first, sell the scrap later' kind of guys.

Between the two droids working, the power to the controls will still take a moment to finish without further assistance. Looking out the cockpit's viewport you see the doors to the hanger slide open and several crew with blasters in hand enter slowly looking, this way and that, for you. They have not spotted you at the controls yet.

Aiakos does her best to remain unseen in the cockpit

The mutinous pirates do not appear to have seen you in the cockpit. The repairs need more time or more effort to be completed, and it is only a matter of time before the group searching the hanger decides to board the derelict scout ship you are on to search for their former Captain. You find you will either need a diversion, a bold action against them, or maybe fate is on your side and you can try to fire up the ship again and pilot her out of the hanger.

Brap!

The blaster bolt emerges from the barrel and strikes one of the  crew blowing him from his feet. The rest scramble for cover among crates and large ship parts and return fire at the barrels direction. None appear to have notices Aiakos in the cockpit as she directed the bolt buying some valuable time for the droid to continue its repairs.
