From what I'm gathering, it's a secret smuggler's station that got cleaned up by another group who claim to be Federation, although Eden isn't quite buying it since she knows that the station is rather hard to find. It also has a lot of facilities for repairs and manufacturing of equipment.

Okay, thanks! :D

Cool! But one last thing, can it fix the Mature? (Or is that still up for grabs, as in I can decide)

Jake felt nothing. No cold, no heat, no thought. And then, something. He felt light warm his skin, somewhat akin to the feeling of sunlight on a beach... but more subdued. Less powerful. Jake opened his eyes to find some kind of sun burning into his vision. He sat up and blinked, realizing this was no sun at all. Rather, a very bright medical lamp.

Jake looked around and slowly got his bearings as he rose to his feet. He was in a medical gown, he felt sickly, but not terrible. And as he looked around a feeling of panic passed over him. This was some unknown medbay, Federation it seemed, but not futuristic-yet-scorched like the Mature, grimy-and-rusted like the Scarab, or blood-stained like the Pelican. It was modern, sleek, and clean.

Jake was not calm. His fear overtook him. This was not unreasonable, considering he was alone in some strange facility, in the middle of a war. For all he knew this was a Rebel station. Feeling the weight of war on his back, Jake fumbled through his folded uniform on a nearby table to find his energy pistol. He activated it.

"Federation or Rebel, whoever walks through that door I'm prepared" Jake said to the empty room, pointing his weapon at the nearest entrance.

I think someone on the station is checking out on the Mature. Also Jake was dragged into the Scarab's medbay by Kira, also he is not alone as Lux and the injured engi are in the room with him

Edit: 4n4rchist made a good point, it would make more sense for Jake to be moved to the station's medbay as he was the only one unconscious.

They probably should be in the station's medbay. It would have better equipment. Also King and Lux could be getting more medical supplies from another room.



A 'thunk' sound echoed through the hallways as one of Eden's men found something in the walls...



In any normal situation, Jake would have taken a moment to check who he was going to fire at before firing. But a primal feeling had taken over Jake, and he began to care only for his survival. So, when the door suddenly opened, Jake fired. And fired. And fired.

"Hey let's strip our patient down and leave their uniform, guns and all right next to them."
"But what if they woke up in an unknown situation? These drugs aren't exactly Federation approved..."
"Ehh it'll be fine. There's no way leaving a soldier with their gun in a hospital is going to backfire horribly!"
"Sounds great! Now what about these 100 000 explosive barrels we ordered?"
"Have everyone cluster around them on rickety platforms. Idiot!"

Seriously, I'm not sure about the medical qualifications of the staff on the station but Lux would have removed all weapons from Jake's uniform before leaving him in an empty room without monitoring. Not just remove the power cells either.


Eden quickly found what they were looking for when they heard the sound. She pushed her men aside to reach in and pull out what appeared to be a long, heavy cylinder designed to contain gaseous substances. One of the pirates tried to help her pick it up only to grunt from the heavy weight. Eden looked it over and noted several symbols etched into it before hefting with both hands.
"Ah good, it's still full and intact" Eden said "Don't want this leaking all over the station."
"You'd have a lot of competition" one of the pirates joked.
"Well the lead-lining still holds so we should be able to get this back to the ship without too much scrutiny" Eden commented.

Yes I understand. I also assumed the above. After all, the station's medbay is probably better since it's in a quarantine zone.
It wouldn't really make sense for Jake to be elsewhere. While I understand Lux and King are there, I also inferred that they'd need a lunch break every once in a while.


The reason Jake fired wasn't so much a primal thought as opposed to a strategic one. If you're trapped in an unknown facility after being adrift in a losing battle, the odds are that you're in a hostile situation...

When the door opened, Jake saw a massive monstrosity, with sharp looking tentacles and swirly disorienting lights. Jake didn't have time to take in whatever the failing-arms of the creature were, so he fired repeatedly. When the smoke settled, Jake found that he had shot some kind of terrifying-looking drone. This machine had arms carrying utensils of all varieties... scissors, scalpels, scanners, probes, etc.

Jake slowly crept towards the smoldering contraption. It was cone shaped, with the tip as its head and the tentacles attached to its larger body section. The head had a smooth, curved glass pane. Jake shown his gun's flashlight into the black glass of the device, which revealed an assortment of sensors and data collection devices.

Jake used his hands to slowly rotate the head of the robot, which made a zipping sound as the motor was forced 'round. Stamped on the side, in Federation Tech ID format, was "INTENSE SURGERY UNIT FF4"

Jake looked around the medbay once more. There were no other patients in the room, leaving him alone. "Why would a human with a minor head injury need an 'Intense Surgery?'" Jake muttered to the cold and lifeless robot.

Lux heard the shots from the other room while she was taking a lunchbreak. "Jake!" she cried, grabbing her own weapons and rushing towards the medical bay.
There she spotted the smouldering wreck of a surgical drone and Jake looking rather... puzzled in a hospital gown.
I thought I relieved him of his weapons, was the first thought in her mind, Unless he stashed it where only a proctologist would find it...
"You're awake!" Lux shouted, wisely taking cover behind the nearby wall; after all Jake had just shot a drone and probably was just coming off the drugs. Last thing Lux wanted to do was get shot as well. "Can you put the gun down Captain my Captain before you shoot your friends!"

Just saying, why would someone strip a person of their uniform AND not also take away the guns?

Four Valid Explanations
1) Jake is in a friendly situation, even if he doesnt know it. The plan was to have him awaken in company with his peaceful friends. They only stepped out of the room for a minute or two. (Which was careless, I suppose) But the plan was to have him awaken surrounded by friendly faces. Removing the clothes was probably only a sanitation thing due to intense Quarentine procedures, and thus there was no need for him to be disarmed.

2) If you haven't noticed yet, Jake is a low-key badass. His gun was probably tucked away in some James Bond hiding spot in his uniform

3) Lux forgot.

4) This situation (and similar ones) happen all the time on movies, TV shows, etc. Honestly at this point this is a go-to plot hole that everyone turns a blind eye to. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Any combination of these things could all be responsible for what happened.


"Boy am I glad to see you!" Jake said. "Listen... We have to figure out what's going on here. We are in a quarentine sector. I don't care about how clean this place is, how come I'm the only patient and I'm suffering from a headache as opposed to a plague? Doesn't that seem odd to you? And why was an intense surgery bot sent in here? To operate on my headache? Furthermore, even though I've never seen this drone model before, shouldn't its arms be neatly tucked at its sides or something? When that thing came in, it was like a scalpel tornado.... Tenticls were flying everywhere... That doesn't sound like standard medical procedure to me! That thing easily could've killed me! I know I'm kind of in-the-dark here, but I get a bad feeling when medbots try to dice me up into assorted pieces."

Xernia began conversation with the odd engi. Not in her forced pirate voice. In her normal one. While she tried to restore the memory of the machine that was in the Mature's hold, she thought about her own mission.

It was almost like a movie. An agent from the future tasked to collect 6 keys before they were destroyed by the 'baddies'. 5 of them were DNA samples to activate a device to a secret place and the last one was a chip containing the location of the device to the said secret place. And along the way, she had to do crazy things like talking herself into a rebel station acting like a federation one, swapping a tank of a volitile gas that contained a virus engineered by the 'bad guys' to eliminate all other races except humans, even if gave them a thirst for human flesh, for a fake one, or injecting someone whose DNA was one of the keys with a serum to wear off a sedative and have the person wake up before they are mutilated by a surgery robot. Yes, it definitely belonged in an action film, or a video game.

But it was definitely real. All of it. And it had a very real danger. Very, very real danger.
