OOC: Is Ted going to take the railgun?

A number of types of grenades are available, as are fusion blocks.  The crewman
looks over.  "They'll survive in the water, aye, but we canna guarantee it five
hundred fathoms.  And scanning equipment, aye, we have some portable,
though most use environmental body armor."

Carlos picks out a suit of armor; Triax T-43 Explorer armor, as well as grabbing
a TX-45 Particle Beam Rifle and WR-10 Ion Pistol.  He also grabs six plasma

OOC 1: What kinds and how many of grenades will Koba take, and how many
fusion blocks.

OOC 2: It doesn't look like anyone else is interested in more gear, so I'm going
to cut this short.  If anyone changes their mind, let me know, and
we'll retrofit it.

A young crew woman appears after a few minutes.  "The Captain wants you all
right away.  Except you," she says to Carlos, "you go to the sick bay."

She leads them to an elevator, and they go down a seemingly impossible
distance before it opens up at the pocket dimension again.  The Captain,
two guards and Raven are there already.

OOC: Just going to wait for Raven's player here.  No pressure :-)
