    Natalya then went on to enter several commands to her arm console, which linked to her in-suit interface. A small pinging alert then sounded on every crew members HUD in their vacc suits. Before anyone could ask what it was, the young woman answered, “It’s the map of the whole engineering section, with the directions to the other reactors!” Hearing this, each woman opened the file that was sent to each of them. Sure enough, a map showing their current location along with directions on how to get to the next reactor was displayed in each HUD. “I also managed to find a brief about the Solaris reactors!” Natalya jabbered. “A brief?” Taal’ani questioned. “A basic rundown of how the reactors work and the theory on how they can be activated. Hopefully, it’s enough to be able to turn one on!” Natalya jabbered. “We can only hope,” Inari muttered to herself. Nats all but ran back to her grav sled and started pushing it towards the nearest doorway, which was slightly ajar. Talon quickly packed up her hacking deck, stuffing it back into its case and slinging it over her shoulder. Wasting no time, each woman stepped back into formation, eager to get the ship back online. Korsa went to the door, using her considerable strength to pry it open further, so the crew of the Darkstrider could walk through. The door gave with minimal effort, this one apparently more well-oiled than the previous ones they had forced their way through. The crew of women walked into another large and open ...

Dust motes flew away from them in their wake, as they progressed deeper into the ship. “About five hundred meters through that door and we should come to the secondary reactor,” Inari announced, gesturing towards the door on the far side of the room. When they came to the sealed door, everyone stopped. Except for Natalya, who walked with her sled right into the door, nearly clipping Korsa in the process. Slamming into the sled knocked the wind right out of her, as she nearly went right over the push bar and onto her gear. Korsa went up to Nats and cuffed her upside her helmet, “Watch where you’re going, young lady!” “Sorry Mama!” the young woman wheezed. “Just studying up on the reactors so I at least have an idea of how to start them up.” Crossing her arms, Korsa responded, “Fair enough but watch yourself. You almost hit me.” Feeling abashed, Nats backed up the sled and let Korsa do her work to pry it open. The door was opened in short order, leading to a wide and long corridor. “Nats, get on the sled. You need to study up on what you found,” Inari commanded. “Korsa, you push the sled; Pree, take rear guard; Talon, with me on point. Let’s hustle ladies!” The whole crew jumped to obey, everyone taking up their new positions. The crew double timed it through, coming up to another door, which was slightly open. The reactor room was on the other side according to their HUDs, but no light was coming from room ...
