I can't wait to try and explain postmortem bullet wounds to the alliance.

With the VI sufficiently distracted Vydd is barely able to get back the access the VI had taken from him. Looking at the VI Gauron doesn't think the VI suspects anything and the VI nods when told about the battle outside. "What was the haul?" it asks Gauron. "If there isn't enough room for it and the trucks, Pelin hasn't withdrawn his offer to buy a truck off of you."

While the others deal with the stubborn VI, Athkros wanders through the rest of the ship, looking for anything useful, interesting, or both. He shakes his head imperceptibly as he hears the sounds of gunshots from outside the ship: Torne giving the corpses of the batarians another once-over.

"Not a whole lot for the moment. The captain of that ship decided to be cute and drop a container with some freelancers in it to try and take us out," Gauron chuckled. "It didn't work out so well for them. Container might be worth a bit to a decent salvage operation. Are the others still waiting for us?"

Athkros has time to go over the ship's rooms in a quick search. He finds all the things one would expect on a small ship: a power core, an engine room, maintenance access for the gun, and a common room with several card decks adorning the tables after being set down mid-game, cigarettes left smoldering in their ash trays, and an old salarian spy vid still playing. By his estimation the ship would only need a crew of four, but piracy demands extra manpower for subduing boarded ships and flying the ships back home. The sleeping arrangements seven men cramped into a room made for two, four more in the first mate's quarters, and the captain alone in the captain's quarters would be uncomfortable even with the hotbunking the batarians likely employed.

Back on the bridge, the VI listens to Gauron's reply but becomes visibly agitated. "What freelancers?" it demands. "You know damn well, captain, that anyone from off-world needs to be reported." It stops for a moment then a cruel look appears on its projected face. "'Captain'," it says. "I'll need you to remove your helmet before we proceed."
OOCVydd gets this turn's crack at the system before the VI starts taking more... Active measures against him.

Using the last bit of distraction Vydd is able to acquire some basic user permissions from the VI, but not enough to do anything useful for the immediate moment. "Wait a minute," it says, turning to Vydd now that his suspicions have been piqued. "What the hell are you doing?" It snarls. "Spies!" it shouts. Vydd sees the computer light up like crazy, but he still hasn't compromised the system enough to shut down whatever the VI is about to try to do.

Torne continues to run toward to ship to assist Gauron.

Uh oh. Athkros considers his options. He could run out of the ship controlled by the now-hostile VI, but that would leave him simply...on the outside of a ship controlled by a hostile VI. Great.

The drell is not sure how advanced the ship's internal sensors are, but he finds a shadowy corner in the cramped ship and attempts to escape the VI's survey of its current occupants that is surely coming.

No no no. We're not spies. We're just the news owners. I'm trying to enter the new crew manifest.

With a deviously innocent truth, Vydd is able to complete his takeover of the VI's systems. With full control of the system he is able to scrub the VI's attempt to send a communication to another ship, and the projection vanishes—as do the emergency lights the VI had activated. Some small turrets, submachine gun sized, peek out of the wall but shelter back behind their covers.

Close one, Athkros thinks as he waits for the turrets to nestle back in their cradles before peeling himself out of the shadows. He makes his way to the too small to really be called a bridge, right?cockpit and rejoins the others. "Well," he rasps, "shall we make an effort to intervene on behalf of the Way's End?" It's a genuine query. They might be better off leaving Captain Lynch and his crew to their fate.

Vydd is holding his head and taking deep breaths when Athkros enters the cockpit. When he asks his question Vydd's eyes snap open.

We can't, at least not yet. If we're going to help them one of you needs to stall the Batarians. Either way I've got to fix the engines.

Vydd runs the engine room.

"Stall them? You want me to continue stumbling about like an Elcor performing Hamlet?" Gauron asked from inside the helmet, though the muffling made it hard to make out his tone. "Have you at least got control over that VI now?"

Well, It probably won't try to kill us for a while. And if you don't think your up the task of outsmarting pirates then abandon the ways end, or you could always just tell the pirates the truth. That will certainly draw them away.
