The Ship's Mess- Pre launch

Rock, paper, hyper drive!
Break the confines of the Sol system.
Or delve in the secrets of what lies within our reach.
Bear in mind to keep the air lock sealed!

"High risk earns high reward. Updates and upgrades to the ship will be affordable when UMC pays for the Copernicus Assignment. I have a couple of other assignments in the log, should you want to look at the pre-birefs before accepting the Copernicus?"

The computer goes quiet and the maps are replaced with two new titles.

1. Needle Investigation. Multiple needle shaped crafts have been sighted passing Mars and some havoc has occurred at a solar array in orbit.
2. Outer planet recog-run. UMC wants a crew to scout three unmapped locations for possible mining sites.

"I agree, we've got enough water to get by for weeks if it's just the three of us... we've got to take a job, we desperately need the money..." Michael taps some more commands into the mini-comp, "Fusion two is online, diverting that output to charge the power ring, we'll need the capacitors topped up for the jump drive... we're taking the first job right... sounds like it'll pay the most?"

"Crew, payment from UMC is calculated upon finalization of any agreed upon contract. Your estimation on possible output on Copernicus Project is correct. It's tenfold the value of the other two assignments. Mind that if you in any way is responsible for destruction of UMC property, this will be deducted from the payment. Likewise, any damage taken on your vessel will be covered by UMC. Should no repair be available for your vessel, a compatible vessel will be provided as substitute. Do you wish to select a mission now?"

"I'm forwarding the status for your crew to UMC so they can approve a backup crew. What's the assigned name for this vessel? Should I stick to the id:number for now?" The computer confirms.

"I don't think we've actually named her," says Ben. "Let's just stick to the ID number until we come up with something."

Spoiler:
Another minute or two of hesitation and someone would have beaten us to the big prize!

Once the decision is made Michael sets about the task of prioritising their incoming stores, deciding on making use of both main holds, they can store things once they are actually under-way.

"Do we get any more information or instructions?" he asks ...

OOC: [Sorry, guys for being late, stupid me didn't see we carried on to page 3, thought the game stalled at me on page 2(I have been checking in everyday, learned my lesson)/]

Dr. Rona Maritz gives a relieved sigh, they got the first prize job, YES.

Apologies :?
Guys, I hate to break this to you. I have taken over a year 5 class with serious problems in the group. I really need to focus on the kids. This means, I have zero focus on the game.
Can I put this on hold till Easter? I'll continue where we leave it today.

I'm sure you will have other commitments.

Keep on gaming and be happy.

Not counting the sales of my apartment and the prepping for the chief-gig, I feel a bit overwhelmed.

For me personally, when having little to do at work or when things run smoothly at home, I have lots of time for gaming. That is not the case now.

Cheerio! :D
