|(ooc: Well, the voice was pretty quiet... : P)|
"Pizza! Just what I needed! Go make some pizza for me, fan guy!"
Captain Awesome then waits for the pizza, somewhat impatiently...

|Come on, post your actions! If you're reading this and you haven't signed up, sign up! I haven't got anyone besides Jam and Mingamango181 yet!|
Colemak got half-distracted, between reading the PDA's translation and the person's request. He entered a return message...
"I HAVE CHECKED THE SYSTEMS STOP WE ARE IN NEED OF ASSISTANCE STOP TWO HOURS OXYGEN REMAINING STOP NO I'M NOT GOING TO MAKE PIZZA STOP JUST SOME THING MESSING WITH THE CONTROLS STOP WE MAY NEED FUEL STOP"
And attempts to send it.

"Pizza! Just what I need!" Captain Awesome orders Colemak to make some pizza for him.
Colemak, meanwhile, is half-distracted and a bit confused. He enters a return message into his PDA:
I HAVE CHECKED THE SYSTEMS STOP WE ARE IN NEED OF ASSISTANCE STOP TWO HOURS OXYGEN REMAINING STOP NO I'M NOT GOING TO MAKE PIZZA STOP JUST SOME THING MESSING WITH THE CONTROLS STOP WE MAY NEED FUEL STOP
Looking for a SEND button, he finds a "Connect to remote host 'SHIPBOARD COMPUTER (KRONIC-TRONIC SPACESHIP)'" button and hits it. His screen flashes to black, a jumble of commands and codes scroll past, then the G.U.I. pops up again, with some new options. He hits "Transmit data via shipboard radio"; a light on the control panels starts blinking away.
If anyone takes the trouble to really take stock of the circular controls, they'll notice a flashing prompt on one of the computer terminals.
Some bleeps and bloops come over the ship's speakers. Colemak's PDA pops up a message: "Translating..."

|If I could remind you two to post, that would be awesome.|
|Colemak kept his focus on his PDA, trying his best to ignore any of the figure's attempt to attract attention. It was quite clear that Colemak had his attention to it, and would remove anything that tried to remove his focus from that PDA.|
With enough time, perhaps the translation would finish, and when that time came, Colemak would read it silently to himself. Or at the very least, attempt to understand what it was that was sent.

|Captain Awesome looks over at the other figure...|
"What are you looking at, fan guy?! Let me see!"
He tries to grab the PDA.

|*rustle of papers*|
*sound of keys clicking*
Where was I? Oh, yes. That...
Control room, anonymous rocket, somewhere in the Outer Fringes
The translated message flashes up on Colemak's PDA.
SORRY TO SAY THAT WE HAVE NO EXTRA OXYGEN STOP WE SUGGEST MAKING FOR THE SATURN PATROL BASE STOP YOU SHOULD GET THERE IN ABOUT ONE HOUR AND A HALF STOP WE ARE TRANSMITTING COORDINATES OF YOUR CURRENT POSITION AND THE POSITION OF THE SATURN PATROL BASE NOW STOP PLEASE OPEN YOUR DOCKING PORT SO WE CAN GIVE YOU SOME EXTRA FUEL STOP DO YOU NEED ASSISTANCE WITH PERSONELL WE ASSUME YOU MIGHT HAVE A LESS THAN DESIRABLE PERSONALITY ONBOARD FROM THE YELLS OF BLOOP-BLEEP WE HAVE BEEN RECIEVING STOP
Just then, a screen next to the one with the original flashing prompt lights up, and displays another flashing prompt, along with a couple of lines of information. There is a loud and insistent beeping noise coming from the display.
Colemak absorbs the message silently...
Only to have Captain Awesome grab for his PDA. The two tussle, but neither can get the better of the other. Tug of war! The Captain does, however, get a glimpse of the message on the screen. Not enough to understand all of it. Maybe enough to understand some of it.

|"Who are you talking to, fan guy? Is that the pizza guy? Tell him to hurry, I'm getting hungry!"|
Captain Awesome then runs over to the ship controls, and tries to open the docking port...
|Colemak pulled at his PDA, hoping to get it back.|
"I am speaking to no-one, fool!"
He decided the best way would be to show himself as the far more aggressive and therefore, more dangerous of the two in the current situation. Even though how he was related to that 'person', he wasn't sure.

Colemak tugs at his PDA, and speaks sternly to Captain Awesome. But the Captain has already let go and hurried towards the controls, leaving Colemak a bit unsteady. Luckily, the Private manages to stay on his feet.
Meanwhile, Captain Awesome has discovered a large red button labeled "Docking port/airlock control override" next to four switches. They are labeled: INNER DOOR, OUTER DOOR, NOSECONE, and DOCKING PORT. He flips the one labeled DOCKING PORT to OPEN, and a mechanical voice intones, "Error. Nosecone not open. Docking port deployment unsuccessful." In a rare moment of lucidity, he pushes the nosecone switch; there's a hiss from somewhere above them, and the light above the switch begins blinking between green and red.
The prompts on the screens are still flashing insistently.
(OOC: Should I continue to have your characters perform actions that are very obvious like that, or should I let you put them in your next post?)

|(ooc: I'm fine with it. If you didn't, it'd probably take twice as long to get anything done, and it'd get very boring... : P)|
"Pizza! Pizza! Pizza! Go get the pizza, fan guy! Wait, nevermind, you'd probably eat it all! I'll go get the pizza!"
Captain Awesome starts searching for a way to the docking port...
|(Ooc: It's fine...)|
Ignoring the 'person' (and a rather cheery one at that), Colemak replied to the message transmitted.
WE MIGHT MANAGE ON OUR OWN STOP BUT BE READY JUST IN CASE STOP

"Pizza! Pizza! Pizza!" Captain Awesome looks for a way to the docking port. What, does he think there's pizza out there? *rolls eyes* Anyway, he sees a small sign embedded into the wall:
DOCKING PORT ACCESS
ONE LEVEL DOWN
Deciding to go one level down, he approaches the hatch, and notices the slimy, spider-like Zargon stuck there.
A mechanical voice says, "Docking port open."
Meanwhile, Colemak has been keying data into his PDA. He now hits SEND VIA SHIPBOARD RADIO. A green light on the console starts flashing on and off.
The LDPP-101 is lining up to dock.
The beeping from the prompt display gets louder.

|"NO! You aren't gonna get the pizza before me!"|
Captain Awesome punches the Zargon the face, then opens the hatch and rushes through. He makes sure to close the hatch tightly after him, continues his search for the pizza delivery ship...
