Heard that over the walkie-talkie. So did the five khefak trying to eat us!
Let me back up a bit. Ash was still off doing something on our own ship. Sresaka and I decided to do a quick visit inside the derelict as the ysoki crew was finishing securing our acquisition to the truck. We actually found a sealed door! And, I remembered to do that thing that lets me get a few seconds of power on a dead system. Just enough to power open a door. We’d been hearing a sort of scraping sound on the other side. Widget was kinda worried it would be a khefak, but it was just a dead guy. Lashunta male, dead a long time. Don’t think he was part of original crew, but most likely just checking out the wreckage and got stuck. He was actually right behind the bridge. Anyway, we found a lot of stuff on the body that we could use (he wasn’t going to need it, and had no identification we could find). But, as we expected, Lexx, on lookout topside, saw some khefak in the area, and then we heard some inside the ship, coming our way. I quickly suggested to Sresaka and Widget that we just be quiet and maybe they’d ignore us. It was working! But, I forgot to tell Lexx….
On an up note, it’s a lot easier to kill those things when the Station crew isn’t helping us.
