With incredible deftness, Ted aims the equipment in his hands at the
old man, knocking the old man back, and temporarily dazing him.

It doesn't seem to be a conventional energy weapon, though there is a
large bulbous part that may be the energy source. At the moment the
man is stunned, so there's a window of opportunity.

OOC: Meanwhile, in the engine room...

The bot looks fromt the video feed to Oz. "That is the creator of the
