Puts more lead in the air then you can

A couple days after the incident with the robot on Mars the Blitzkrieg Bop landed at a local ship yard and its engines slowed down to a stop. Frank rubbed his head since the night before he and his new crew member Ringo had drank a couple of cases of beer using some money they 'found' in the casino where the robot had attacked them with the intent of killing Frank.

He walked into the rec room where much of the driking had been carried out and kicked aside a few can's and bottles as he walked over to Ringo who was lying on the floor and nudged him with his foot. "Hey, wake up already we're here."

Ringo gave out a slight grunt of acknowledgement at Frank kicking him an groaned as sat up, “Uhh, I thought I felt the ground stop moving...” Ringo managed to get to his feet with a hangover the size of the mass of bottles that had accumulated from the trip to Jupiter, which Ringo thought was funny since he dumped a large portion of the bottles while in space so that he wouldn't trip as much on them whenever he got drunk, which was for most of the trip. Ringo started gathering the bottles into a crate that he found nearby and joking asked Frank, “Hey, what'ya figure that the deposit would be for all of these? Because I have the strange urge to eat something that doesn't come in a bottle.”

Frank looked around the room and nodded in disbelief. "I don't know why but I don't remember us drinking this much..." He started to head out the room and said, "I gotta make a list of things we need. Oh and there's coffee brewin' in the galley." He walked off heading towards the engine room where he had for the past few weeks been keeping the ship running with pieces of string, duct tape and a bit of chewing gum. It wasn't his proudest thing but the fact was he didn't have much time to stop and get it looked at by someone who knew what they were doing. With his list of the parts he needed to replace he headed back to the galley to get some coffee.

Ringo laughed, “Hell, I don't even remember taking off” He tied up a now full trashbag and looked around the room, satisfied that all of the bottles were gone. He tossed the bag with the other 3. He called out to Frank after he walked out of the room, “Hey, I'm gonna take these out for deposit and get something to eat. If you wanna come along I'll be getting the truck ready.” Ringo walked to the pile of beer bottle trashbags and dragged them to the cargo room. He tossed the bags into the truck bed and did a quick inspection of the vehicle, “Tires, steering wheel, ignition key, everything seems to be in order”

Frank had himself half a cup of coffee and then made his way downstairs to the hanger with his list of parts in hand and a coat to hide his revovler tucked in a holster on his back. He walked down the steps and found Ringo looking over the truck. "You got all your emptied packed up?" he asked as he opened the airlocks at it's panel on the wall and got into the driver's seat. "I wanna get these parts and find someone to fix the engine proper for once. That ok with you?"

Ringo forced opened the passenger door to the truck after jerking at the door a couple of times,“Yeah, the bottles are all in the back. I don't mind doing some errands.” He put on a pair of sunglasses that he found in the truck to help with his still lingering hangover. As Frank started the engine and drove out of the airlock Ringo asked him, “So, we're getting a mechanic, eh? Bout time, I saw your 'repair job' that you were doing back there, I'm not entirely sure that mechanics use duct tape when securing fuel rods.”

<Ashley Enters>

Ashley landed her ship near the hanger bay. She noticed it was not opened. She got out of her ship and tried to open it up but it wouldn't open.

"Damn it," she said. "Where in the hell is Frank or Ringo when you need them to open the damn hanger bay?"

Ashley pulled out her whiskey bottle and drank from it. She was starting to feel a little tispy.

Ringo drove his new challenger past the airlocks and parked it where the truck was usually kept. He got out of the car and radioed Frank “Hey Frank, I'm back at the ship. I got the bottles taken care of too.” Ringo thought about how he left the truck by that bar and wondered how Frank would feel about that. Shrugging off the idea, he walked back up to the rec room and grabbed a beer from the fridge and used the can as an ice pack as he walked up to the cockpit. He saw Ashley's ship and opened a video channel to her ship hoping that she would be able to hear him, “Ashley? What are you doing out there? Where's Frank?”

Ashley heard Ringo's voice blare through the video channel and she jumped up, spilling her whiskey slightly.

"Ringo you scared the hell out of me," she said. "You owe me a drink."

She laughed some and said, "Frank told me to meet you guys at the hanger to park my ship. I think he's paying for his parts or something."

She finished drinking her whiskey and put the bottle back in her bag. "What the hell are you doing back on the ship?" she asked as she hiccuped feeling a slight hangover.

"At least I think that's where I left him," she added under her breath.

"Now are you going to let me in or not?" she asked Ringo.

Ringo scratched the back of his head and thought to himself, “Aww shit, that's right. I took the truck and left him at the scrapyard. Hope they have a tow truck or something that he can borrow...” He went back to the video channel and said to Ashley, “Hang on a sec and I'll let you in. By the way there's something I just picked up that I left in the cargo bay so meet me there when you get your ship in the hanger.” Ringo walked to a nearby control panel and opened the hangar doors, “Right, got the doors open for ya. I'll see ya in the cargo then.” He left the cockpit and headed back down towards the cargo room. As he walked into the cargo room he opened the beer he'd been carrying around and took a long drink. While drinking, he noticed Frank's truck was parked outside, just past the airlock. Ringo stood where he was and stared at the truck. He drew his autorevolver and slowly walked towards the truck not daring to make a sound. As he past the airlock he heard movement coming from behind him, followed by a blunt pain at the back of his head, knocking him unconscious.
