currently I say our weapons are at 2 bars with only 2 old lasers
Eyesight Technology wrote:"We arn't going to destroy the federation ship. And with a ship like this, we wouldn't be able to if we tried. Power down all weapons, that'll make us look kinda friendly, I guess. Power the shields to their maximum capacity, so we can hold-out as long as possible, if the feds begin to fire. Power up our engines to maximum capacity, so we can evade as much as possible too, and also so our FTL can charge faster. If we don't have enough power for max shields and max engines, power down anything we can spare. And, actually, power down the 02. Just trust me. Also, I need a full sensor sweep of our enemy - I want to know what kinda weapons they got locked onto us right now."
The idea here was to hold out against the federation patrol as long as possible - enough time to jump far away without, ya know, dying. With shields fully raised and evasion at max, we might be able to stall enough for the FTL to charge.
Jake signaled the federation patrol.
"Yo... uh... this is Jake, captain of the Robin A. As you know this ship hasn't flown in quite a while, and we are just cadets. We're having trouble lowering our shields... I know it sounds silly, but our shield controls seem to be... locked... give us a minute..."
"This is Federation Patrol #74230. Manually cut power to your shields immediately. Another patrol equipped with a transporter will arrive shortly and escort you off of your ship." Jake cut the transmission and hopped on the intercom.
"Guys, we need to be outta here before the other patrol arrives. Apparently they are equipped with a transporter. Send our lovely Zoltan crew member to the Engine room to boost some power to the engines. And where the hell is that sensor sweep I asked for???"
Then Jake signaled the Fed ship again, "Our 02 seems to have shut down. If you do a scan, you can confirm our 02 system is offline. We will have to focus our efforts on fixing that before powering down the shields. Sorry for the delay!"
"Negative. Shut down your shields immediately." The federation vessel replied.
"Sorry, but if we do that we'll all suffocate before you can arrest us! Don't worry, it'll only be a small delay. hehe..." Jake nervously cut the transmission. That 02 trick would only buy them a little time.
You guys can select how much your respective systems have been upgraded. (For example,
if you work in the Shields room, you can decide how many shield bubbles we have.) Just remember, this ship is 80 years old!
Bren lowered the weapons, diverting all the power to the shields.
"Heading to the Engine room!' he called out running as fast as he could to the engine room. He made it inside and saw the engine, "Never thought I'd have to do this again' he said to himself gettign flash backs to the slavers using his energy body to power their systems.
He went to the engine and touched it, focusing, "Alright don't distract me, if I screw this up I might drain the power" he said focusing his being to keep the engines charged
