We're a lovable band of misfits giving the finger to The Man and going to make our own future. Plus, having bosses and following orders sucks. So instead let's be the boss and give the orders and make everyone else miserable. Also, horrifying bioweapons are fun and good and I'm sure absolutely nothing can go wrong while loving about with them.

E: Actually, hell, send them both in if we go hot. No reason to restrict ourselves, Granny kicking down doors and shooting the place up while Kruze goes all Alien through the vents to nab the hostages probably has the best chance of success.

While we're here and can easily get into the station's computer systems, can we sneak around a bit and give ourselves hidden admin access, maybe a remote backdoor we can access while planetside, whatever else we feel would be useful? Never know when that kind of thing might come in handy and we've got lots of time plus physical access to be super sneaky and make sure our tracks are thoroughly covered.

Good neighbors do preventative espionage on each other all the time, I'm sure it's no big deal. I'm totally down to have whoever's the best at computer stuff install a backdoor while everyone else is helping with repairs, never hurts to be prepared. This is the one space station for the entire planet, it's a critical strategic asset that we have a golden opportunity to exert some more control over.

Get all the Influence we can, and keep the workshop-in-a-box as our wildcard. Might end up being critical planetside, and if we suddenly find a pressing need for one of the workshops we can just set it up then.

Oh, thoroughly compromise the commsats while we're gonna be sitting around with them in the cargo holds for a week anyways. Never hurts to be able to listen in on or even cut your enemies out of the network.


Yes I'm aware my suggestions are apparently always "break into the nearest computer system and make us some back doors" but it's useful, damnit.

poo poo, would be great to have that environmental upgrade for Granny's suit about now. Although on the other hand without the mortar we'd probably all be LA chow.

B, we don't care about such petty things as fragile meatbag environmental tolerances and should be able to do the job fine. I don't want to gently caress around with hacking Human installations in case any security takes issue with a failure, just go in and cut it away ourselves then fix the place up slow and careful once we're no longer in imminent danger.

Repair Mechanotron Control
A, sell food for Influence
E, pollen vaccine

Getting the auto-repair back online is cheap, has affordable upkeep, and will make the place fix itself. Win win win, imo. Plus, who the hell can turn down a legion of Human killbots servitors that completely and totally only civilian in nature. As to laying low and just exporting food, no need to go out and stick our nose in other peoples' business, we've got a good thing going right here let's just bank up some influence for expansion later. Ditto on the pollen vaccine, we're sitting on a goldmine of human tech that's nowhere near secure or established enough to safely draw the kind of attention being the center of a trade network does, so we should just stick to local fun for now. And local fun requires hacking our way through the helljungle. So we need the vaccine first to make local fun more practical.

Let them come to us, we've got a nicely fortified position. Also, that's our commnet now, rear end in a top hat. What a nice way to pay us back for literally saving your life. Although try and keep up the charade that it isn't as long as we can, we just want to use it for passive listening. At least until the battle starts, then it would be great to gently caress with it actively.

I am very excited by the possibilities presented by having our own teleporter.

C is on the condition that it's Paladin we're loving up. I feel like playing the bad guy on a popular reality TV show is gonna put a stain on our reputation in real life. I mean, yeah, it's obviously all scripted, but as is traditional the audience are mainly rubes who DON'T know that and will think we actually really are evil pirates and will refuse to deal with us/run away/shoot on sight/whatever else. Let's just gently caress with our one established enemy instead of accidentally making more.

E: Also, let's maybe not broadcast our crazy advanced Archon spaceship on a major TV program, somebody might decide they really want it and come try to take it. Nothing good ever comes of publicity, I tell ya.

Bringing the commnet back online is a good secondary priority, but yeah agreed that if we can put getting the actual 'formers running at the bottom of the queue that'd be great. We don't need them for anything right now and turning them on will just draw unwanted attention.

Actually, thinking about it, can we ask Lamarr to have her mechanotrons start work on some defensive systems? I'm sure she's gotta have the blueprints that are labeled as a basic level 1 Human security fence tucked away somewhere which because it's human tech turns out to be like a 40 foot doomwall covered in lasers. But yeah, we need defenses. Preferably anti-air/space ones.
