With a gasp of breath, Crewpony, Neon Tracer awoke from his deep hibernation, his head throbbing as he sensed an hard scraping against the hull of the ship that made it groan incessantly. Buuuuck! Make it stoooop! With a whinny of displeasure let out, the ship finally came to an stop and settles, were we stuck in some sorta Debris Field? Would explain why it's so dark in here...only emergency power is on so it seemed as the lights were quite dimmed. Leaning down in his Hibernation pod, Neon forgot that he had this thing on his head called a head. And he'd be smart to use it as he used magic to tug on the manual release of the pod, allowing to open with an satisfying hiss as he began to cough. Taking on old musty air into his lungs, he shook his head as he knew he had to go get this place back up and running before he and the other ponies of the Ark suffocated, starved, or worse. It had a fifth of Equus population on it after all...and they had an planet to colonize...if it still existed at least."-Crewpony Neon Tracer was an average unicorn with no real particular skills or abilities, still, he had his duty to attend to. Fix the ship. Wake the crew, and uh, male sure the captain was alive so someone more qualified could get them out of this mess.In the immediate room he could see other sealed hibernation pods, lockers, an nearby exit, along with an leader heading up.>What shall Neon do?
>>39712755Neon heads over to an nearby terminal, activating it as he navigates the menu roster, "Buck...buck...pluck. what was that whorses name again? Sterling, Strafing, Starry? Stolen Majesty, got it. Huh, figures she would be up in the deluxe hibernation block. Great, that's a bit more than a hop, skip, and a jump to get there..."[Captain Majesty location, ascertained, route downloading to NavCom Uplink.]Grabbing an nearby tactical computer, he slides it over his hoof and onto an forelegs. Now to get something on more than a pair of briefs.
>>39712777Check the lockers.
>>39712777Search for information. Maybe we can get some clues, what to do.
>>39712860>>39712958Trotting over to the nearby locker, Neon opens the creaky metal container as he rummaged inside, putting on an bodysuit that would regulate his temperature because pluck was it chilly in here. How could anybody get anything done while being so frigid? It forms to his body tightly as he goes to to access the computers systems as he looks up the nearest subsystem to repair."Alright, seems the Emergency Power Generator should be put into full functionality first, the main engines are something I don't wanna touch right now...", Unplugging from the computer, Neon pants as he sees a path line on the floor leading him forwards, convenient. Thanks SparkleTech.>Moving to leave the container room, he could hear an odd noise coming from up above in the ventilation tract, he could go check it out, or go follow the path set before him?
>>39713626Frick, hard choise..But still, we don't have anything, to go above. Follow path, and try to be silent.
>>39714036As Neon headed down the silent halls, his hooves clip clop against the metal flooring as he made the odd turn and path, seeing some damage and blockages were present in places, some sort of gunk or broken walling and piping as he reached an room that was decommissioning and cleaning the air. It was rather musty as it felt hot and humid."Buck, I got a bad feeling about this..." As he backs up a bit towards a corner his hoof steps into an sticky substance that startles him s he yelps with fear ashe runs to the wall panel to try and turn on some sort of light. His breathe was getting heavy as he wanted to identify the sticky substance as he hears some goopy lurching coming towards him! "Wh-who is there!?" [Entering Combat State?]>Hack the Power Panel-Turn on Lights-Open Door>Fight?>Flight!?>Other
>>39714520Instead of being here let's be somewhere that isn't here
>>39714555>>39714569Run, run, run, runny run! Panicking, you flee as only dim floor lines were keeping you from running smack dab into the walls as only the wet lurching of soggy hooves sounded off close, far, close, the ventilator eventually finishes its job as the door opens before he throw himself through the door. It automatically closing behind him as he quickly scrambles to lock the door for now. Panting hard, he collects himself as his imagination ran rampant at what could have been coming at him.He'd have to deal with that later as he was at least coming upon the power generator room. Creeping around in the dark, he managed to locate the power sourcer and boot the generator back online, the power gage going from an atrocious 3 percent to an not quite as bad 15 percent as the over head lighting activated and new rooms were now accessible. "Great job Tracer, your not a complete pluck up after all."--Looking down at your TacPad, you see that you could head to the security lockup, mechanic bay or the med bay from here. At least now you could see straight.
>>39714730What can we expect at the three locations? Also, can we access the generator's logs and try to figure out why and when it went offline? Power is kinda important in space even if we didn't have tons of ponies effectively on life support.
>>39714936[Bringing up AppleAdvision Software...]Security Lockup contains tools and gear for Pone-Sec officers. Armor, Ammo, Weapons, etc.Medical Bay has access to lifeforms scanner to ascertain level of threat present in the Bucephalus Ark Ship. Medical items, and chemicals.Mechanical Bay: Access tools to access locked or blocked areas, access to assistant drones.[Switching to AwesomePower diagnostics power running...power failure after foreign object entered the loading Bay docs, ion energy signature detected in large quantities have knocked out the power primary systems and shielding.]"Great, have to manually reset the power generators and subsystems..."
>>39715109Looks like we've been boarded. I vote for the mechanical bay.
>>39712777>Buck...buck...pluck. what was that whorses name again?Aaaaand dropped. Just like you will a few days from now!
>>39715382Yea, mechanical bay should be good.
Save space ponies.
What do you think, was it a pony or an anomaly?
>>39715382>>39717947Making your way to the Mechanical Bay, you notice some odd gunk and goo in places, nothing he'd ever seen before as he whimpers softly, grosssssss. Still, can't be a complete coward right? Pushing forwards he arrives at the mechanical Bay as he sees an small cute robot roaming around. It looked like if you chopped off a ponies limbs and stuck treads on. "Good morning master!" She says seeing him enter, "It has been 76 hours since last crew member has entered the Mechanical Bay, they did not repair this unit so that I could assist them in their task.""Task? What task?" Neon asks the Treadpony MK1, she processes the request, taking a moment tog etc the necessary data and reconstitute it verbally."To repair the Bucephalus sir. I detected rogue machine behaviors on the chatter network. I'd exercise caution sir." She says as she heads over to the workstation, "Activating Mechanics Permissions sir. Here, please defend yourself sir, I heard odd noises for about 137 years now." Petting the cute metal head, Neon smiles as he figures that something was horribly wrong, now he has probable confirmation to defend himself. Looking over the Bay, he collects some spare parts and materials to use in the Mechanized Extruder to build some equipment...-Enough for one weapon...>Security Baton, Electrical and Blunt>Chakram Bit, Mouthheld and Sharp>Reinforced Horn Blade, Headmounted and Sharp/Poke
>>39724658Rainforced Horn Blade should be good, if it can pierce metal.I would choose security baton.
Depends on where you are in relation to a sun.
>>39724763>>39725271Said Security Baton was a nifty fit to Neon's forelimb, and to be swung with the limb with adjusted to be held by the hoof or mouth and capable of delivering an electric charge to anything unlucky enough to get in his way. Magicianing it to his back slot, he looks to Treadpony, "Good mare." She smiles as she asks what he'd do now?Looking around the Mechanical Bay, he remembered he could come back here with more parts to fix up the Robopony or even alter her design to assist in more matters. "Stay safe uh..." She answers with MP-207tTurning to leave, the mechanical Bay has become Neon's makeshift safe haven for now. It's big enough to store things or bring back this other survivor back here if they were still okay.">What shall Neon do?
>>39727642I vote medbay next.
>>39727642Do we know, how to unlock deluxe hibernation block? Do we remember, where we can unlock it?
>>39729224Surviving and fixing the ship are more important than thawing out somebody so they can bark orders at us while hiding somewhere safe.
>>39729913Yea, but lets be carefull. We don't wanna lose someone.
>>39732739Right now, that's not possible since it's only us.
>>39729042>>39729224>>39729913>>39729042>>39729913Neon pulls up his TacPad on his hoof, magically powered and charged he brings up a direction overlay of the ship, needing an Travelator to to get to the forward aft of the ship where the deluxe deck is. The protocol was to wake the captain to be access the necessary data uplinks and assess the damaged ship systems."Great, so even if I wanted to get this done myself I'd have no idea if I did everything right or missed something...hmm, that leaves my path clear at the least."Shaking his head, Neon goes to head for the Medbay as he wanders the halls, following the path liner as he runs to get there as he sees an machine with sparks flicking from it. Scanning...scanning...Damaged Drone. Suggested course, disable errant machine.Readying his Security Baton, Neon prepares to enter conflict for the first time.HP: 20Moves-Baton Strike-Horn Bolt-Bucking Strike-Shoulder Check
>>39733268Lets try baton strike
>>39733268Time to smash it.
>>39733660>>39734311Wielding the implement of justice, Neon charges the malfunctioning drone, swinging wide in his haste as the drone zaps his butt, buck, owie...circling each other, the two swing at each other once more as electrical charged weapons armed through the air, this time Neon's landing true as it bashes against the drones spherical body, denting it. The machine whirs hard, as of struggling to catch its own breath as it swings its own Arc Tender rapidly and wildly.Oof, maybe getting close isn't as wise now...
>>39735480We should be carefull, try to hide behind some obsticle.
>>39735480Horn bolt then.
