In her 15 minute com check Adriannah leant that the search team had located a Lab. Interested in the find; she asked if they'd m managed to get their hands on a Portable Computer or Hard Drive from it.

"No! It was a mining operation and factory or laboratory I believe. I was kidding."

"Well, while the others are exploring, the three of us that remained on board can do some brainstorming," Luise says to Adriannah and Gahler.

"How old do you think this facility is? If it turns out to be an alien base, rather than just some really esoteric human culture, any suggestions on where they came from? Do either of you know of any alien races in this neck of the woods? Foreven seems a likely candidate."

"Without knowing their technology limitations, we don't really know how far they may have come to mine this moon. It might help if we knew what they were mining."

"Anyway, amid all the speculation and wild guesses, we should try to figure out a way to get the salvaged equipment onto the ship. Carrying it halfway through the moon seems way too inconvenient and time consuming. Assuming they find an airlock out into the crevasse, is there some way we can put that junk in a cargo net and haul it up to the ship in one fell swoop? We have a cargo crane. The real question may be: do we have enough chain or cable or strapping?"

Looking up in surprise Adriannah sees Luise & Gahler standing at the Iris of her Cabin.Not a clue about the Race... she replies, enjoying the prospect of documenting the find and possibly identifying the Ancient Species. Any stuff could be shifted using the ships boat.

Gahler gives Adriannah a hard stare for a moment, and then says:

"Really? You got a ship's boat in your pocket?"

He pauses for a few seconds to let his words sink in before continuing.

"Why didn't we think of that when we were trying to get down the crevasse?!"

"Oh, that's right... because we don't have a ship's boat."

"Unfortunately, I don't have a better idea. In this lesser gravity, the cargo crane should easily haul up a cargo net full of loot. Probably be helpful if it was in containers, though."

"And you're right about the length of cable. This ship wasn't designed or equipped for that kind of operation. Maybe they can find a cable down there, since it was a mining operation. They must have had some need for a crane now and then."

"Then again, they are alien. We think. I can't think of any species that has long thin fingers that could be inserted into those holes that passed for key openings. Of course, they may have just used a tool like Arlo is doing."

Re: Dust Runner Quarters
Returning the obviously intrusive fellow's gaze. Its gratifying to see that you have familiarise yourself with the Ships capabilities. How's your knowledge of Shipboard Internal Maintenance. replied Adriannah crossing to the door she activated its iris door closing it in his face and leaving him in the passage.

Re: Dust Runner Quarters
Adriannah can probably hear his laughter as he walks away.

He heads back to the bridge to man keep watch on the sensors, even though they were on automatic. Clearly, Luise had wanted him along for another brain to pick.

He'd given his two credits, though.

Re: Dust Runner Quarters
Surprise and concern about the fellow's statement about no Ship's boat. Adriannah thought this was a good time to address this. Captain will you be getting out the Ship with a auxiliary boat?

Re: Dust Runner Quarters
"It isn't that I haven't considered it, or that it hasn't been brought up before," Luise replies, "but the question has always been what to get and where to put if we do get it."

"We already got the cargo module fastened to the bottom of the ship, so slinging it underneath is mostly out of the question. Putting it dorsally has its own problems... mainly, access. If we got an auxiliary craft and custom modified it to accept the ship's lift up through the bottom, that would be practical. The alternative would be to relocate the lift off to the port or starboard and it pops up within its own airlock to access the airlock of the auxiliary craft."

"That would make the ship a bit less maneuverable, and we might need to reinforce the landing gear."

"The other alternative was to put it in the cargo hold. Regardless of which one we put it in, it'll reduce our cargo capacity."

"Have you got any suggestions for either what to get or where to store it?"

Adriannah smiled You could sell the Ship, then we (the crew) could pool our collective resources to Buy a larger Merchant Ship, one that had everything needed.

Noting Luise's marked silence Adriannah gave a slight wiggle wave of her fingers and right hand. Not to matter... she commented.

"Oh, sorry... mind was wandering," Luise responded to Adriannah.

"Well, that's what we did to get this ship not so long ago."

"I think we need to make a bit of a go at this one before we consider another one. I suspect we'll find that no matter what ship we get, there'll be something we don't like about it... too old, too slow, too cramped, too wide, too shiny, too beat up... You get the picture."

"It's really about doing the best you can with what you have, not constantly trying to trade up to a bigger and better deal."

As a side note, has the new crew been performing well?

"You mean have you and Forge being performing your duties well?" Luise replied, referring to the only two new crew on the ship.

"So far, yes. But then, neither of you have really been challenged yet, have you? Out here in space, if you screw up, particularly if you do badly, you aren't usually alive to be criticized."

"Sometimes, the hardest thing to do is wait."

Adriannah gave Lucy an appreciative smile If I may Captain what would you classify as being under pressure? interested to learn what that would entail.
