Steve sat at a table in the Twilight Horizon, drinking some of the cheap booze places like this were known for. He had been there for several weeks, working odd jobs to make ends meet. It wasn't anything out of the ordinary, mostly the maintenance and repair of the station's many electrical systems. In the past weeks, he had been to most of the station's middle and lower sections, and even got to go to its recently installed biodome to help in maintaining some of its agricultural machinery.
He had just finished his drink when he noticed a change in one of the Twilight Horizon's screens. An ad had started to play, and it was one that he would surely be interested in. Starship engineer? Being part of a new crew? he thought Maybe I can finally leave this place behind. Steve stood up, paid for his food and drink and went to his room, getting most of his tools, some spare clothes, and anything he would need.
Steve then leisurely made his way to viewing dock C-3. He'd been on the station for some time, of course, and he knew that it was the dock looking out over the storage hangar bay. Guess that new ship must've finally found an owner. As he arrived at the viewing dock, Steve spotted a young woman, perhaps about five years younger than him from what he could guess. As he walked into the room, he gently put his toolbox down and said "I assume you're the one who sent the ad, and captain of this vessel? I'm surprised, it's been in storage for some time. My name is Steve Artis, and I'd like to serve aboard this ship as an engineer."
