Chapter 3: Jump Space Terror!
There is a slight dimming of the non-essential systems as the Frog transitions to Jump space...then the lights come up and with the exception of the normal mechanical and automated noises of a starship, all returns to normal.

Re: Chapter 3: Jump Space Terror!
The comm sounds on the bridge from Engineering, Sorry for the dimmed lights, Captain. I routed a little extra to the J-drive, and there seems to be a slight power bleed, but I'm working on it with Bob.

Lav, out.

Re: Chapter 3: Jump Space Terror!
A woman that he only met in passing approaches Ryker. Hey, she says with outstretched hand, I'm Kyna. I see you are busy with these passengers, and, well, even though I am 'technically' one myself - well, I get bored. Do you want me to help out? I can take a cabin off your hands, if its easy. I'm not really trained in this type work.

Re: Chapter 3: Jump Space Terror!
Uhhh, This is your captain speaking we have successfully transited to jump space and should be arriving at our destination in uhhh 168 hours, give or take a few hours."he looked over his controls and then to Wong.Jokingly speaking in a stereotype calm, and professional tone that had been around since the age of the atom bomb on Earth.. "And you all can thanks my crack crew for spotting a wee bit of trouble before we walked into it....Mister Wong, and Bob down in engineering managed to spot some sneaky trash in ou flight path and allow us to avoid it....Buy the a drink if you see them in our luxurious lounge, and be sure to tip the cocktail girls. Enjoy the next few days we'll be back into real space before you know it."

Wong gives a nod to Sully.  I can stay on the bridge if you want.  I will research our destination system.  Which Wong does and then closes down the nav station.  He then looks over the piloting controls, familiarizing himself with their layout.  Always nice to jump and get away from dirtside.  He quietly stands watch, just the eyes moving at times.

Re: Chapter 3: Jump Space Terror!
So...we have a week in Jump.

What we will do is go a day at a time of what you are doing.

For NPC's:

Lavender will run systems diagnostics and work on a Jump skill

Kyna will help Ryker as a Stewart to work on that skill, covering whoever he says to (she'll volunteer for the Lord and Doctor, since she figures they'll be easier than three men cramped in one cabin).

Bob will mess with Kyna's pet robot.

Re: Chapter 3: Jump Space Terror!
Have I developed my skill in space gunnery yet?  If I have not, that's what I'll be doing.  If I have, can I work with someone to learn Jump calculations?

Tybalt is working at learning the gunnery stations on the ship; first stop; the sandcaster!

Re: Chapter 3: Jump Space Terror!
Wong could help with the jump mathematics and navigation.  He has a science background.  Otherwise he will lend a hand as needed ...

Re: Chapter 3: Jump Space Terror!
It appears learning Jump calculations will have to wait for a future opportunity...

Re: Chapter 3: Jump Space Terror!
After things settle down, Ryker finalizes the wine deal between Lord Bailey and Lary Hite.

Ryker will not shirk his responsibilities off to someone who is not part of the crew or at lease working for passage.  So he wouldn't hand off any passengers to the woman however the she is friendly and and easy on the eyes so Ryker would gladly let her assist under his watchful eye.

Unfortunately the steward doesn't get a respite like much of the other crew so what little free time Ryker has is likely spent getting to know the passengers and his new crewmates.  (perhaps working towards a carouse skill or improving broker skill)

Re: Chapter 3: Jump Space Terror!
Wong will spend some time schmoozing with the passengers, IISS stories and such, basic navigation/piloting questions and such.  He can also help with maintenance, even if it wrench-holder, "here, hold this", etc.  He has a personal drone that occasionally tags along or is parked in the corner.
