3 {beat}
4 Spanners: Quercus, prep engines for immediate departure.
4 Quercus: {over intercom} Already started, Mr Spanners.

I originally wanted to start with the GM saying with some desperation that Serron and Iki Piki must have their communicators switched off, but then I wouldn't have had room for the all-important silent panel.

2017-12-17 Rerun commentary: That all-important silent panel shows that the bridge of the Legacy is ridiculously large. I guess even a small merchant vessel can afford lots of empty interior space. It's kind of a trope (or two) in non-gritty science fiction that the ships have a lot more interior space than could be justified in real life.
