Looks like WJ has left the forums for good, as they haven't logged in for 14 days either.

No one seems opposed to SDK taking Engineer, so I consider it as assigned.

That leaves the following:
Astrogation 1
Broker 1
Comms 1
Engineer (Jump Drive) 1
Gunner (any) 1
Medic 1
Pilot (any) 1
Social Sciences (Sophontology) 1
Steward 1
Streetwise 1
Vacc Suit 1
Zero-G 1

Everyone else, bust out your 1d100.

You'd better hope we have no depressurised medical emergencies.

So, how do I roll a pilot check?  Let's make sure I do this properly.

Scooping a gas giant: Dexterity, 1-6 hours, Routine (+2)

Meaning that you roll (Dex (1) + Pilot (3) + Mod (2) =)6+2d6 against the target number of 8+. You can't actually fail the roll, it is just about what good a job you do.

Fuel scooped from a gas giant is unrefined, which creates a -2 penalty for the jump results roll to perform the actual jump. Many starships have processors to refine the fuel, but lab ships unfortunately do not. However, the chemical equipment in the lab makes it easy to jury-rig a processor:

Jury-rig fuel processor: Education + Physical Science (Chemistry), 1-6 hours, Routine (+2)

The actual processing will take two more days after that. Up to you if you want to take that extra time or risk a misjump.

For the actual jump (p.141):

Plotting a course: Edu+Astrogation, 10-60 minutes, Easy (+4), 2 parsec (-2)

Divert Power: Edu+Engineer (J-Drive), 10-60 seconds, Average (+0)
(Note that many engineer go slower (p.50) and take 1-6 minutes for a +2 bonus on this roll.)

Jump Results: 2d6 + grade of success of the Engineering check (-2 if using unrefined fuel): 8+ accurate jump, 1-7 inaccurate jump, 0- misjump
