Computer: Now scanning the area. Hmm nothing but lots of dust and gas.
Commander: There must be more than this in the cloud.
Computer: There might be, but you need a more powerful scanner to find out, or go further into the cloud.
Go deeper into the cloud Return back
William Smith: This is just like all the other clouds we been in.and you know what that means don't you.
Storm: What, tell me.
William Smith: Any moment Now.
+ The Ship suddenly hits an asteroid.
Skynar: Oh darn it not again. I keep forgetting that with bad scanners I keep crashing into things.
William Smith: That. The Pilot has done it yet. Crashed into another rock. It always happens to him when the scanners don't perform well in these clouds. I been noticing a pattern while my drink has been spilling all over the place from the last couple of impacts the ship has had in those clouds.
Storm: Yeah you're right William, hes done it again, but he hasn't got great conditions to work with so I guess it can't be helped. Commander, you need to get better scanners.
Janice Worse For Wear: I don't know how many times you need reminding Commander, but the scanners will be permanently damaged if we remain too long in these conditions. We need to get better scanners and replace the bad ones we currently have. I suggest we do this very soon.
Skynar: Then i will beable to see where I'm going under these tough conditions.
Commander: Am Already working on it.
Janice Worse for Wear: Well Commander, work a little faster, the scanners could give out at any time on us.
Commander: What do you mean Janice?
Janice Worse For Wear: You have half an hour to spend in this cloud and after that, the ship will have to exit in order to avoid permanent damage. Otherwise the scanners will get damaged.
Commander: Oh. So I'm on a time limit then.
Janice Worse For Wear: This ship is until it is serviced and upgraded with new scanners. You have no other choice Commander. If too much dust collects on the scanners, they will get scratched.
Loana: Didn't you already say that Janice.
Janice Worse For Wear: I just want to be thorough so the Commander understands the seriousness of allowing the scanners to degrade, as those type of scanners do not like long periods in dense dust clouds.
Nosey Nella Parkas: I know, someone should go outside to the scanner device and put Flo brite no scratches cleaning fluid on them. That will take out the scratches if there are any
Janice Worse For Wear: The Scanners are very delicate sensitive equipment. You cannot put Flo Brite cleaning solution on them, that will ruin them for sure if the Commander did that.
Nosey Nella Parkas: Won't know until you try.
Janice Worse For Wear: Well...
Commander: Well what have we to lose, the scanners we are told by Janice are going to give out anyway in a short amount of time, so we might as well try Nella's crazy idea, might just work to extend the life of the scanners a little longer.
Cronis: I fail to see how cleaning the scanners can extend their range.
Commander: Or if that don't work Where's the nearest outpost?
Janice Worse For Wear: We can try the Irie Outpost for upgrading the scanners.
