"Naw, it is just SNAFU." Andrew manages a bad joke smile. "Matthew since you are already at the controls see if you can pulse the stabilizing engines to slow the decent rather than halt it. Give us some time to get this at least to snowballs chance in hell level. Looking at tall the shiny consoles and nice buttons Andrew shakes his head. "This is not my place. I'm heading back to the flight deck to take inventory of anything there. Pirates had a ship, lets see if there is anything we can use from it."

OOC: At least I'm assuming that the pirates left behind were not abandoned by the others.

"Finding any station survivors takes priority over any salvaging," Chad says plainly, "Let's do a visual sweep of the station and meet back up on the flight deck."

Julia looked at the Navigation Display, then at the ship schematic, and had to shout above the sirens, "I'm no Flight Officer, but even I can tell that this facility is heading for crash and burn. This station is huge and is going to take many hours to do a visual search. We have to try and contact them or find out where they went."

Andrew shakes his head. "I'm not looting, Each ship has a reactor core right? Each reactor core is designed for so much power. It was plain to see that the attackers did some modifications. IF one of those mods was to the reactor I may be able to patch in the power lines to prevent the secondaries from tripping so quickly. Personally I'd rather have 2 hours instead of 1 if it were possible." Andrew shrugs. "Besides, if we have only 20 minuets and it is going to take survivors 30 minuets thanks to airlocks and jammed pressure seals what good is getting their hopes up? Hey Matthew, any chance you can pull up rate of descent to give up at least some sort of time line?"

Andrew stays where he was stopped look back and forth between the two directions. "Then again if there is only one survivor then what I was going to do is worthless."

Chad nods his head approvingly despite not liking the reality of what he is hearing, "you're right, I don't want to burn in atmo either, but we aren't saving this station.  We don't have the time or manpower.  Let's do an electronic sweep of the station and see if we can locate the survivors' comm units.  If we have time then we'll effect a rescue.  If not, then we pack up, send out proper signals and notifications, and get these murdering sons-of-bitches into proper custody."

Matt listened to the back and forth, and applied himself to the control board. He did his best to shut down the maneuver jets, so they didn't come on automatically when the secondary reactor came up. Then he brought up power slowly, feeding it to the internal comms of the station, and any internal sensors that might be available.

The power slowly comes online, and the comms panel starts to work.

From the comms panel comes shouting and pleas for help.

Nodding, Matt said, "Alright, I think we're in business. Chad, would you get on the comms, and try to restore order? Drew, your idea is sound, go on to the flight deck and do what you can. Julia, if you would, go with him, and get ready to set up triage there. With any luck, we can can get at least some of those able to move under their own power heading your direction. I will try and get us at least a little thrust on the jets to give us some time to work with. Jack, pitch in where you can, unless you have a better plan. Oh, and prayer might be good if anyone is so inclined."

With that he went back to focusing on the control board, trying to figure out a sequence of jet firings that wouldn't crash the secondary reactor, but still might at least delay the station's fiery demise.

"You're damn right I'm going restore order!" Chad says with complete conviction, "let's move like we got a reason people."

"Guide me to the survivors," he says as he starts running down the hallway.

Jack slings his rifle and approaches the console where Matt sits and has cut the ship over to manual.  "Let's see if there's anything we can do to stabilize our orbit without overloading the power."

He looks over the controls.

The orbit correction thrusters fire up in short spurts but it hardly makes any difference.

From the crying, screaming and pleas of help, two distinct groups can be resolved:

One group appear to be in a cafeteria, in A-wing of level 5.

Another group are trapped in a movie theater in C wing of level 4.

Andrew nods and head back into the hanger bay. Making a mental note of the various junctions and available wiring he tries to come up with a way to transfer power from the nefarious point A into the stations power grid.

The thrusters burst into life again, the orbit decay has slowed, but the power is insufficient to regain stable orbit.

Under the assumption that my portion is going to take a while.

"Allrighty, Looks like I've got a little juice coming your way. Hope that buys us the time we need. I can help Julia set up triage here as well. If there be needing someone in rescue Chad may need a hand." Andrew grunts as he hustles the heavy cables across the hanger bay.

Matt, having relinquished main controls to Jack, found himself looking at the officer's logs, downloading them in their entirety to his own computer, and scanning the highlights, especially anything in the last 24-48 hours. When Andrew reports his success. Matt replied, "Nice job, Andrew...looks like it bought us some time, but we are still falling into the atmosphere."

A few video logs also catch Matt's attention:

Four mins later an explosion takes out the camera.

Main reactor 22:40
Several poeple are trying to barricade a door, but something bursts up through the floor below them.
A blueish grey 'thing', smashes against the main reactor over and over, poeple run screaming.
The camera is taken out by an explosion at 22:50

Medical bay 35:33
A half digested man is seen through a blueish grey haze sliding across the screen.
The haze clears, showing three slime covered skeletons on beds.

"I don't see that I can do much more up here," Jack says, "we've slowed a bit, but we don't have the power to keep this from going down.  Sounds like Chad has some situation down in the cafeteria.  I'm going to head down to the theater and see who we have there." 

Jack readies his rifle, and starts down towards the theater at a brisk jog.
