The three robots at ground level are almost certainly out of commission.  The small robot in the cab of the crane is the only one you are not sure about, it took a pretty heavy hit but dropped out of sight so you can't tell for sure if it is still functioning or not.

After helping the Doctor to his feet, Toulaan calms himself and shifts his point of view so that he can see inside the cab (using Clairvoyance.)  He will do what he needs to (i.e. climb on top of the Jenny Allen) in order to be able to complete this little recon.

OOC: not sure if he has the range to do it.  Only 1 meter is pretty short.   :(

Prescott Harland - Derelict Ship's Bay[/font]

Once he's sound and safe on the Bay's floor, he hurries to the airlock, ready to engage again his spacesuit if it appears the bay is being vacuumed.

The cab of the crane is more than 1 meter above the highest point on the Jenny Allen, so you won't be able to see in.

Round 5

Dutch does a final sprint to try and get to the Airlock before the door finishes closing, but doesn't quite make it.  He makes an impressive dive to try and stretch and get his rifle jammed into the doorway but misses by a fraction of a second. Ryan is right behind him, but just a little too far away to do anything.  The door closes.
Toulaan is watching the cab of the crane intently, but doesn't spot anything other than a few flames and a bit of smoke still coming from the cab.  Everything seems pretty quiet in the landing bay, other than a few snaps and pops from the shot up robots.


Dutch finishes his dash to the Airlock
Walking across a flat surface is normally a Mundane maneuver, so Dashing would be a Medium, so no modifier. He’s diving to get through the door, so will use Acrobatics/Tumbling and it will be an “All or Nothing” Maneuver.
+27 roll
+18 skill
= 45 – Less than 101, so the maneuver fails

The doctor slaps on a field dressing, slaps himself to wake him up and then readies himself to shoot any new targets.

(eg.  the concentrating psionic with his back to him ;) )

Actually, everybody was on the top of the ship, other than the folks that have now jumped/climbed down.  That's where the emergency airlocks come out.  Toulann did not have to move much, just a meter or two, to get to the high point on the top of the Jenny Allen

ooc:  "oh!" indeed!

bic:

The doctor's finger twitches everso slightly on his pistol's finger guard as he uses his medical knowledge to visualise the effects of a laser beam at short range through the baron's kidneys.

"Next time, maybe..."

He murmurs to himself.

A bit of a recap of the situation,  the Jenny is parked basically in the center of a large landing bay, which is about 150 meters wide and 100 meters deep and 40 meters high.

There are the large bay doors behind her that open into space, but are now closed.  There are the two airlock doors against the back wall, about 30 meters apart that the robots came out of.  The door on the right hand side is now closed, Dutch is just picking himself up off the floor in front of it and Ryan is now standing there with him. Prescott is on his way over as well.  Behind that particular door is a shot up large robot, quite likely out of commission.  This is the same door that Zaras and the Medic went through a little earlier.

The door on the left is still open.  A couple meters ahead and to the left of the door is a fairly large stack of crates, stacked 4 meters high, 2 meters deep and about 6 meters long.  Each individual crate is about a meter long and 1/2 a meter deep and wide.  Several of these near one end have now been shot up and the second large robot is laying in pieces behind the crates, his head is laying further away, about half way between the two airlock doors.  

There are a few other stacks of crates along the back wall as well.  One stack appears to be barrels of some sort rather than crates.  This one is towards the right hand wall.

On the far left hand side of the bay, there are some vehicles, small tractors and forklifts that would be used for moving cargo and there is a ladder leading up to a catwalk which gives access to the cab of a crane that is mounted on the ceiling.  There are cables and rails along the ceiling that allow the crane to move around above the landing bay.  The catwalk extends around the back of the landing bay and to the far right hand wall.  There is another ladder on the right hand wall.  This ladder goes up to the catwalk, then appears to continue up to a hatch in the ceiling.  There also seems to be some sort of control booth at floor level against the right hand wall.  There is also a stack of large freight car size cargo containers against the right hand wall, stacked two high and six across.

The crane itself is about 15 meters above the Jenny Allen and about 25 meters to the left.
There is a small robot presumably still in the cab of the crane and there is still a little smoke coming out of the cab. There is still a cargo container hanging from the crane. The bottom of the cargo container is about 3 meters above the deck.

Doctor Octavius Gribble, The Baron Toulaan, Phill, and Reegus are still on top of Jenny, since that is where her emergency airlocks come out.  There is a small, no longer functioning, robot lying on the ground underneath the Jenny.

Ryan stands at the door and curses through clenched teeth.  He then turns and looks at the team, calling out, "Baron - can you tell Zaras or the Medic to get back here and open this door.  Warn them that the robots are no longer neutral and are most likely dangerous."

Ryan pats Dutch on the back as he rises. "Keep an eye on that other door for now while we reassemble. I'm going to have the others do a quick search, and then with or without the others we're moving on."

As he moves back towards the Jenny he calls, "Phill, head up to that crane cabin and make sure that the little one is out of commission - the recon the top hatch.  Reegus, you and Doc take the crates, barrels and containers. I want to know what is in them, and if there is any kind of equipment that might help out our ship - let Prescott know so he can examine them more closely."

Quietly he pulls Prescott aside, "I don't like this place. We need to find something to get us out of here as soon as possible.  Do you know what kind of gear the Jenny needs to make a jump?"  He pauses for Prescott's response, and then adds, "Then find it."

Prescott Harland - Derelict Ship's Bay[/font]

After roughly giving out the list he made for himself
"Okay captain, copy that."
...
"But i doubt we'll find everything here. Some of this stuff is pretty specific and do not hang out in the open if they repair crew know their job."


"Doc, Reegus, get yourselves down there, pronto. There's an awful lot of stuff to inspect."
If i know i can handle one well enough:
"I'll get one of the forklifts, we'll need it for sure."
If not:
"If one of you know how to handle the forklifts go get one, we'll need it."

[OOC] You have a driving skill of 30, which should be more than enough to handle the forklift.  There is one parked near the Jenny that the small robot was driving.  It is still running so you don't even need to figure out how to turn it on.

The doctor puts his pistol reluctantly away and starts to climb down (there is a ladder, right?) the side of the ship.

His banadage and a quick slurp of his homebrew seem to have worked wonders on his state of health.

"If you can open the doors, boss.  I can escort the baron after the away team. That is, of course, if he isn't scared of a couple of robots."

Yes, there is a ladder going down. And a friendly reminder that although his state of health may be good, the state of his space suit might leave a little to be desired...

The doctor pauses as he is about to climb down the ladder.  His fingers twitch again as he gets a vision of the baron flailing for balance as someone stamps on his fingers.

"Hmm ... does the hole in this swim-suit matter?"

He asks, turning back and nipping into the airlock to go and change.
