Kraig looked up and frowned.  He rose from the engineering terminal and held out a hand.  "Hi, I'm Kraig Pars.  You are?"

Kraig motions to the engine room.

"We need to get this baby ready for space.  We need to run diagnostics and check fuel and power reliability.  Do you have any engineering qualifications Stez?"

Shamus finishes the diagnostics on the J-drive and then comes over to talk the two men, "I'm Shamus, J-drives are my specialty, but, if there's anything in particular you need, let me know."

Kraig nods to Shamus.  "Kraig Pars, glad to meet you Shamus.  I'm more of a pilot than an engineer but on free traders you learn to work where you are needed."

"Well, if we work together and take our time, we should have everything up and running pretty quickly."

With that said, Shamus will start checking things out, both electronically and visually to make sure that everything's running smoothly

Re: Dust Runner Engineering
"Sounds good Shamus, since you know the systems here I will help you get things going."  Kraig works carefully along with Shamus to bring the ship's systems online and ready for stressful use.  "Do we have fuel scoops and a purification plant aboard Shamus?"

Stez, moves out of everyone's way, and just places his hands on one of the computer consoles. His expression goes blank, as concentration appears.

Re: Dust Runner Engineering
Although all the systems seem to be nominal (there are no red flags), that's the hardware. The programming, however, is another story.

Stez is able to detect a bug... specifically a misjump worm. Without the proper diagnostic sequence being run AND a passcode entered, the ship would misjump when the J-drive was activated.

"umm, i know it's not my place, but the ship is infected with a misjump worm." he pulls his hand away from the console. "more specifically, without the proper diagnostic sequence being run AND a passcode entered, the ship would misjump when the J-drive was activated" he stands and waits, for the forth coming barrage of questions or scolding.

Shamus watches Stez, "Well, that's quite an ability you have, especially since this was discovered after we ran our diagnostics...I'm impressed, thank you... Can you guide me to remove it?"

Shamus runs the sequence/diagnostics....

Kraig glances over at Stez and frowns.  "Ummm... good catch but how did you manage that Stez?"

Re: Dust Runner Engineering
Shamus with an assist from Stez have no problem removing the virus from the ship's computer, even tracing the backup down and killing it.

Forcing a misjump was certainly one way for Ritter to avoid the authorities.
