Starship Transmigrant :: In Engineering

You are in Engineering.

It has been <n> minutes since you first heard the red alert.

You are holding a flute/a visor/a phaser/a tricoder/<booze>.
You are an adequate computer user/able programmer/amazing hacker.
You are an adequate/able/amazing flautist.
You are an adequate/able/amazing ship's gunner.
You are adequate/able/amazing with a phaser.


Wait a minute

Play the flute for a while

This doesn't seem like an appropriate place to play the flute.


Speak to Johnny

You approach Johnny who is typing and talking away at a computer terminal.

"Can we filter certain elements out of the ship's atmosphere?"

"I s'pose Captain, what element?"

"Argon, Johnny."
"Helium, Johnny."
"Hydrogen, Johnny."
"Methane, Johnny."
"Neon, Johnny."
"Sure, gimme a minute," Johnny says as he bangs away at the keyboard, "configuring the scrubbers to remove neon during the recirculation phase."
"Ok, all set. Computer execute," he commands.
"What was that s'pose to do, First Chief?"

If the cloud alien is on board, and the appropriate element is chosen:

"Sure, gimme a minute," Johnny says as he bangs away at the keyboard, "configuring the scrubbers to remove <element> during the recirculation phase."
"Ok, all set. Computer execute," he commands.
A few moments pass and your comunicator chirps, "Admiral, the cloud is gone from the bridge. It seems to have been sucked in to the ventilation system. Damage to the bridge is minimal and we are no longer receiving any signals from the alien."

After returning to stardock, there is an awards ceremony. Just as your commanding officer is pinning a medal to your uniform, you feel yourself being pulled back from the future.
"Well," you think, "at least I have the memory of earning X medals in the future."

You earn one medal in the future for this solution.

"Oxygen, Johnny."
"Oxygen's kinda important for breathin', Private."
"Oh yeah, let's not do that."
"Tell me about the computer."
"Well, she's yer basic crystal-matrix cpu with onboard fusion ram running Spacenix 141."
"I see. And when you are typing away and doing fantastic things, what are you doing," you ask.
"Just some basic hackin'. Pokin them registers and such."
"How'd you learn to do that?"
"Ran through the Computers fer Dummies Holofloor program a time or so."

Unlocks the "Computer, activate Computers for Dummies program." option in the Holofloor.

"Knock, knock."
"I don't have time for this, First Sergeant."
OR
"Who's thar?"
"Opportunity"
"No, you tried this line on me during the last war."
OR
"Who's thar?"
"Interrupting Replacement Ensign"
"Interrupting Sub- Chief wh-"
"Hey there, Johnny."
OR
"Who's thar?"
"Space"
"Space who?"
"Space: the final frontier."
"Good bye, Johnny."

Looks like you spent about a minute with Johnny..
