Everyone who knows something about my signature should know what's going on... Whenever there's a mutiny, the Big Ol'Turdlip (in other words First mate) always shouts "This is the Father's ship!", provided you have the combat mutiny ability unlocked. But truth is, Father's ship is only the first one... Any other ship you get is not the Father's ship... Yet the Turdlip always keeps saying the same... Is he just stupid or why does he do it?
It's like this: The life expectancy of a spacer is only slightly better than that of a fruit fly. Odds are, the only two people onboard who lived long enough to see a second ship are you and OTL. So, obviously, you and Turd Lip made a pact to keep the ruse going. Who's to question? Some Steelie conscript? Some Rychart grav turned wanna-be spacer that hasn't even earned his first patch of grey skin?
By Shalun, by the Core, Hit Kaldun, 'tis no more, Ask War Worm, how's it feel? Slashed, shot, burned, fire and steel!
Actually, there are five that never die. Even if you lose your entire crew in a combat, five will always survive. You, three officers and the ship's cook. When there's not enough crew, the cook is kept in a stasis cell to ensure resurrection when he is needed. But you and three officers are always alive and functional.
