Mitre only finds seald crates, their identification and contents labels have faded away.

You all step up the ramp of the boat. Its small inside, all in one open area you see several passenger couches bolted to a carpeted deck, a very small kitchenette, and several compartments. The cockpit is just beyond the couches. Through its main viewport, you see the large airlock door. It gives you a bit of a suffocating feeling, being that it lies between impending destruction, and the freedom of endless space.

Right away Heinrich can tell that this boat is in fine condition, probably completely ignored by its Bat-Being owners. Everything is coated in a layer of dust though, and some specs are dancing in the dim light coming from the glow of the boat's interior lights.

Suddenly several blasts ring out, an earsplitting creaking groan eminates from the slaveship's hull. The pain in your ears is purprisingly uncomfortable. All of you cringe to the sound of what you can only imagine is the slaveship's hull starting to tear apart. You all fear that only minutes remain before... something.... bad happens.

OOC:
First of all, you guys need to understand that THIS IS A SPACE VESSEL, very different from a jet plane. Its okay that your characters refered to it that way, not a big deal. It is designed to carry a small amount of passengers from nearby ships or stations, or to nearby planets. It is in no way fast or maneuverable. It provides enough thrust to achieve the average planet's escape velocity, not much better than that. It mounts no guns (keeping in mind that some Launches like this CAN mount missiles and missile defence systems, but this is rare)

You also know that getting to the controls and "preparing it for take off" is a process in which the Boat's ramp will seal shut, the engine will be warmed up, and the airlock will depressurize and the bay door will open. The Boat will then detatch from its parent ship. With the Ship's Boat skill you know how to do this and piloting it is easy enough for you to be confident at it.

And Jen, you don't know how to spell your own character's name? Just pick one and stick with it. I just really want to clear that bit up already. And you say you don't know what's going on? Re read a few posts back maybe. In fact, its simple, YOU ARE TRYING NOT TO BE CAUGHT ON THIS SHIP WHEN IT EXPLODES! Thats you motivation.

"Oh blast... here goes nothing!"

Fio runs in and hops over the back rest of the pilot chair, landing in the seat.

Okay there must be some things that are similiar!, If anyone wants to co-pilot with me, Ill take the help!"

Fio starts flicking power and ignition switches, making sure the throttle is off.

Irritated by the small amount of space and his failure to identify any important objects Mitre follows the others into the selected vessel. Contracting his legs, and scrunching up to fit through the doorway he makes it inside. Looking at Fio in the pilot seat he feels a slight twinge of irritation but knows that this ship would'nt allow him to pilot it regardless.

Silently crawling vertically onto the wall to get as far away from the others as possible he waits for a copilot and the launch to freedom.

The hatch closes and seals shut. Heinrich, after a second or two of remember the proper procedure, reaches for various switches, knobs, and levers. Fiona watches him, a little nervous, hands on the controls. Although she wouldn't know what to do if the worst were to happen, no one will be able to say she didn't try valiantly.

The Life Boat begins its launch sequence. Out in the launch bay warning lights begin to blink, and in a few seconds, the big airlock door slides open. All atmoshpere in the bay escapes, and out of the main viewport you see the various crates leave as well. Into the black and forbidding abyss, you see hope for survival. Everyone waits nervously as the Life Boat's engines roar to life. You can feel violent vibrations shake the boat. You assume the slaveship is still being fired upon, even though by now you suppose it should be in pieces.


OOC:
I'm going to do the launch sequence dealy in two posts. I'll do the second one soon. I just want to wait a bit for some of your reactions. Don't post anything that includes acitons that would take longer than like 5 seconds or so. (just don't go and play raquet ball or something while you are about to escape a firey death, haha)

Also, Heinrich DOES have skill in Ship's Boat, so Fio can trust him to do most or all of the work.

Fenris finds a seat and attaches himself to it firmly in preparation for launch.

"Now or never, let's say farewell to this slave ship forever!"

Heinrich activates the thrusters and the boat gently accelerates out of the bay. But before you could breath your first breath of relief the twisted remains of the slave ship suddenly explodes and engulfs the life boat in fire. The force of the blast shoves you further into your seat. Mitre claws at the wall creating a screetch that pierces your ears.

Debris impacts the boat's hull with dangerous effect. The heavy gravities on your bodies make your head spin, but from as your bloodshot eyes refocus you catch a glimpse of distant stars moving from the top left of the main view port to the bottom right. You also notice red lights appear on the panels.

You can tell by the sickness of your stomach and the odd angle of force that your are spinning out of control.

Action calms down a moment later as the blast subsides, but the uncomfortable spinning force remains. In addition to the red warning lights, an amber light appears and a console displays a message.

It reads,
THRUSTER AND LIFE SUPPORT DAMAGE SUSTAINED. AUTO PILOT READY TO ENGAGE. CONFIRM? Y/N

A compact keyboard begins to glow for convenience.

"Dammit! Its your call Heinrich! Im going to search for any auto repair systems I can!"

Fio runs her fingers across the various panels and holo displays searching for something to stabilize their situation.

"And the Monkey's flips the switch," mutters Hienrich, "that was a damn good movie."

Hienrich pushes the button. "Hold on to your hats lads!"

At first nothing happens. The spinning continues, warning lights blink, anxiety builds. Text scrolls up the screen:
______________________________________

The shuttle's limited information is off putting. Your respective homeworlds are all located in the Solarate Fringe, and in the Asterion K subsector, so it is a little comforting to know you aren't on the other side of the galaxy.

The spinning stops, and you only feel a a slight force pushing you toward the back of the shuttle.

Hours pass. A red glowing object in the viewport becomes aparent. More hours pass, giving you time to rest, eat and dream of happier moments in your life.

As time goes on the object gets larger and more detailed. Almost possible for a keen eye to inspect.
