    I can sense that others are losing their nerve. This worm is wriggling on our hook, and you want to let him go?

    Hold steady, men! The cowardly murderers among us have to have someone infiltrating our repair crew, and this Nictel is sweating elephant bullets. He's writhing in the painful agony of his impending doom, you must not show weakness, you must demonstrate resolve! Let not your emotions weaken you, gird yourselves manfully, grit your teeth, and shove the slayer of men into the slimy brig where he belongs!

    HEAVE HEAVE!! HO HO!!! THIS GUILTY NICTEL HAS GOT TO GO!!!

    Is there? If there is, never mind.

    Pizza, the saboteurs already had someone hiding among the repair people, that being TheForestAuro. If Nictel is anything, he is probably a rogue, with as much incentive not to be sent to the bottom of the ocean through a cracked hull as the rest of us have. I'd think that you of all people would understand the necessity of sometimes making unusual alliances. If this isn't such an instance, what is?

    We need more repair people, there just aren't all that many of us yet, and we're not holding the right ranks, either. Which brings me right back to the empty officer slots, whose jobs it would normally be to make the necessary changes. I am not happy.

    I'm not interested in forming an alliance with the murderers until I get a confession and proof of their guilt.

    OOC:
    Spoiler :

    Sorry, you know from the CoV that I am willing to make alliances with anyone, but I don't make alliances with people I don't know and who aren't being honest with me. It is the same reason you guys flushed me so quickly. We both know what's necessary for cooperation, and that's trust. There is no trust with the unknown. That's why I flushed Beskar.

    I am just as concerned with our useful people being MURDERED. The ship can be repaired, dead people cannot.


    Confession followed by proof, or no deal.

    Again, I have the ability to promote ranks. Who wants what, why, and who is most important. I can promote everything below Lt., or give someone my rank if they need it. I have access to the CIC and the Nav bridge. If anyone has the Aegis motherboard, now would be the time to say so as I dont believe we can repair the system without it.

    Nictel, I think we gave Renata the master-key, so if she wants to help you, she can. Duke Blackstone, I think you should promote me to the PO1 slot that's vacant above me. As to why, well, I know I don't have any rank abilities at this level, and there might be some at the next that are useful.

    If I am not mistaken, we all have access everywhere right now since the damage in the electrical room has disabled the secure locks on the ship.


    EDIT:

    Bold mine.

    Nictel you are only adding to my personal suspicions about you. If we didn't need some repairsmen I'd say we should throw you into the brig this instant. Earthling can have the inventory sheet.

    I think it is important that we have all of the officer positions filled at all times. I don’t know what rank abilities they all have, but leaving them vacant is not productive.

    As for who to fill the vacancies, I can’t really help you, other than to say make sure it is someone you trust.

    When on earth did I ever indicate such nonsense, Nictel? That's right I take back what I said a mere few minutes ago.

    Current brig calls, by my count, following Frozen's statement:
    Nictel: 6
    Duke Blackstone: 3
    God Emperor:1
    Autolycus: 1
    choxorn: 1
    Sprig:1
    Frozen:1

    We are swiftly approaching the point where we shoot, rather than jail. Oh, and captain Methos can have the sheet.

    Why Earthling? What has he done to prove he deserves an inventory sheet over the captain?

    No, I know why you claim you need it, but I don't think I can trust you with anything.

    Nothing really, but the captian has enough on his hands as it is.

    Frozen in Ice needs to explain where and when he got the weapon he presently carries, and why he's so desperate to keep it a secret.

    JG Niklas sits quietly at the stern, watching the wake of the ship as it churns the waters. The attack didn't seem to faze him much, as his near-catatonic state already pre-dated it.

    What's the point? What's the use? When did we become the ones we weren't?

    I'm voting for Renata to have the inventory sheet.

    My lynch vote goes to Frozen In Ice; you've been asked about the assault rifle you have, but refuse to state where you got it from. So, who gave you the weapon and when?
