Kuerzu smiles softly at Zhenya before nodding. "Always." He says before noticing that the thing is gone before the crew had a chance to retaliate. "Get a damage report as soon as you can. Zhenya, come up with a watch rotation. I'll take first shift." He says, watching the thing shoot off into the night.

Zhenya is not going to just watch the thing leave. Sighting the Rifle ahead of the exhaust flare, hoping to hit something vital, but expecting only to vent some anger, Zhenya takes a shot at the departing bike.

Darkness and Night: Poor lighting conditions may restrict the ability
of an individual to see and attack. Total darkness restricts
engagements to close and short range. Gun attacks at greater than
short range are subject to DM -9. Partial darkness (moonlit night,
distant illumination, or other weak light sources) reduces visibility
range to medium, and attacks with guns are subject to DM -6.
Electronic sights eliminate negative DMs due to darkness and poor
lighting.


Plus Evading:

Evade: A combatant, at any range, may state evade as a status.
The person may not make any attack (no swings, blows, or shots
are allowed) during the combat round and may not use his weapon
to parry or block (see Expertise); he or she receives an advantageous
DM in the defense, based on range from the attacker (-1 if at short
or close range, -2 if at medium range, -4 if at long or very long
range).


So even if at the most mild, it's -7, a miss. Zhenya should roll 2d6-3, to see if she hit something important in the direction of the port or city.

It's a beautiful rifle, finely hand crafted with Vargr designs, except it's old, and with that last shot it seems to give a sigh as the action locks open, and the bolt carrier jams, either the receiver has cracked or the bolt carrier, something is wrong. To add insult to injury, Zhenya's eye must have caught the glare of a sodium lamp in the distance, because that winks out. In the distance, begins the tell tale wail of a siren, was the shot of a rifle in the dark enough to draw them in? Across the landing field, a ground car (SUV) with police lights turns on, turns off of the main road cutting through, heading your way.

Anyone with streetwise would know that even if not seeing the glint of lenses, there were eyes in the night, that 'Borg knew when to run. The thing also was set up to be street thug scary and not combat effective, and part of a message that what a nice ship you have, it's a shame if something were to happen to it ...

Cal should roll engineering his skill will tell how long until getting the power plant back online. Otto is stunned that his engineering section has been so violated.

"Blyad'!"

Mortified, Zhenya stares at the rifle: "Oh, Kuerzu, I am so sorry. I will have it rebuilt."

Hearing the siren: "Der'mo, stanovitsya tol'ko khuzhe" *sigh* "My fault, my problem."

The police car cuts it's siren as it approaches, the new silence allowing the sound of the tires crunching on the pavement to be the dominant sound. The lights still strobe, illuminating the darkness around the careworn vehicle. Two officers exit the vehicle, gas masks and combat environment suits, one with an ACR and the other with a shotgun. They tell everyone to put their weapons down on the ground, and for Kuerzu and Calson to keep their hands where they can see them, obviously suspicious of the combat armor. "We have a report of shots fired, damage to lighting of the landing field, did you do that on purpose? I don't know where you think you are, but we have laws around here."

"I got your back Zhenya, and don't worry about the rifle." Kuerzu says as he sets his rifle down and raises his arms. "We were attacked by...something. It fled into the night and my crew mate here took a shot at it. If you'd like you can inspect the damage to our engines." He says, almost casually.

The cop looks to Kuerzu, the electronic voice of his suit toneless, "You are the Captain?" The officers go with him and inspect the damage, viewing the video, outside again the one continues, "That 'Borg is wanted for various crimes, has a 5,000 credit bounty on it's head. You want to file a report? I suggest that you might want to hire some security contractors to guard your ship, outside Human space, things can be a little rougher." The other adds, "So where was the 'Borg when shots were fired?"
