Strictly (Duke) Springer - Day 062 – March 2nd

Ok, I have to do some book keeping. We are taking a day of RRR. I have two engineers, so I have them get to work on the new ship. They install some guns and stasis units. Lucy, Duke and Emily are healing up.

We decide to name the second ship the Alicorn.

I am dividing the areas protected by stasis units among the ships. There are 4 CU of protected space in each ship’s crew quarters. I move the 2 CU stasis unit from engineering to the other ship’s pilotage. The turret of the Antelope has 1 CU of protected space. There is a 4 CU stasis unit in the cargo hold of the Antelope. I have created a pair of sheets to mark all of this down.

We also redistribute cargo and the crew.

Four crew members are on the Antelope: Duke (pilot/gunner), Bones (medic), Ratchet (engineer) and Lefty (gunner). Five are on the Alicorn: Emily (pilot/gunner), Deadeye (gunner), Doc (medic), Lucy (engineer) and David (gunner). We lose the capacity to fly the hoppers and the ships at the same time. We have 9 crew and need another pair of pilots and one gunner.

In order to protect all of these people, I need to buy some more status units. In doing this, I will refit the crew quarters with 4 3 CU stasis units. This will allow me to protect up to 12 crew per ship in groups of 3. I can move the single CU units to various parts of the ship to protect workstations. I’m almost OSHA compliant. :)

Since I am being so nice to the crew, I am going to cut their salaries and simply give them a 1% cut off of all profits. This is 1% each, not total. Cheating, yes, but this will make record keeping easier. Payouts will be much higher than a measly 15 secs. a week.

As an additional cheat, I will no longer be tracking personal items owned by the crew as cargo. That removes side arms, PS bots and USuits from the cargo hold and presumably into the crew quarters. I am simply going to assume the weekly cost of the bots as a loss, per week.

You'll note on these sheets that I am only coloring very large items like big guns and multiples of repair units, fuel and life support units. The Alicorn has no boat, so the fuel and guns are simply sitting in the boat bay. Since I am actually working on paper, I merely have a sheet with penciled in notations. I may share that later.

1 Antelope starship with TL-5 Guns. I owe nothing.
1 Hopper with boat guns, TL-3.

1 Boat guns, TL-2,
4 CU Status Unit (e103),
1 TL-1 military U-suit,
5 TL-4 heavy hand weapons with explosive effects,
7 Side Arms TL-1,
4 Doses of pheromones (e009) in Duke’s pocket,
and the ship is fueled with 6 hypercharges.

1 Alicorn starship with TL-1 Guns. We owe nothing.

1 TL-2 Boat guns,
10 TL-1 Heavy Hand Weapons,
and the ship is fueled with 6 hypercharges.

I have 54,171 secs. We are wanted in the Palatek system.
