"Your hired." the quartermaster declared.

Just then, there was a loud crash of glass and wood as one of the tables was overthrown behind the three, sending drinks and shitty appetizers all over the floor.

The woman looked back at the disturbance.

Just to see a patron come hurling into the bar between the two. Luckily the quartermaster moved out of the way in time, allowing said random patron to go flipping head-over-heals over said bar and into the bottles of cheap liquor shelved on the other side.

The source of the disturbance was another young woman, also in her early twenties. Her back was too the assembly at the bar, so all they could see of her was her reddish-brown hair tied up in a rather messy ponytail, as well as the back of her brown bomber-jacket and faded blue-jeans.

"You think you can cheat me!?" she bellowed at the people standing in front of her, a group of three male card-players who had been on the wrong end of the flipped table.

Said men were just getting to their feet as the woman threw off her jacket, revealing the white tank-top underneath. They didn't get any time to respond to her, however; as she was almost immediately upon then, using the momentum from her sudden sprint to power a snap-punch into the left-most card-player's face. Even as he went soaring out of sight, she had switched the central man, who raised his fists to block her initial blow. The strike was indeed blocked, but she-followed up by spinning around the man to the side and chopping at the side of his neck.

The third man tried to pull a gun, but the spin had moved the woman just close enough that a quick upward kick sent said weapon straight up into the ceiling. She then tried the close the distance and strike again, but he managed to block the first punch with his hand, which he clamped over the woman's fist. She then lashed out with her left arm, only to have that blow caught too. The man smirked slightly, just before she lunged forward and headbutted him in the jaw. He let go, took a few dizzy steps backward, then flopped onto the floor.

"What!? Is that all!?" she roared in a victorious voice... just before the gun she'd kicked into the ceiling came crashing down onto her head.

She immediately went rigid, then cartoonishly fell to the floor unconscious, the camera angle only showing her feet come back up into view.

The woman sighed and facepalmed.
"Way to go Jordan..." she said. "Gonna get us kicked out at this rate."

She then got up and went over to her friend to check on her.

Jordan, and the card-players, were all out-cold. Luckily there was a guy standing just to the engineer lady's right with a nice tall glass of ice water.

"Can I have that glass?" the woman asked.

"I'll give you back the glass and you can get a refill. I'm just interested in the water right now," the woman said.

"B-b-but... it's such pretty water... oh... fine." the man reluctantly handed over the glass.

The woman takes the glass and dumps the ice water on her friend before offering the guy his glass back.

The guy took his glass back and immediately vanished from sight in search of a water fountain.

As soon as the woman turned around, her friend shot up and clamped her hands around her throat.

"Why you infe-- Oh hi!" Jordan sputtered, releasing the woman's neck, "Eh-heh... sorry."

"You lost your cool again Jordan," the woman deadpanned.

"Only a little." Jordan replied, holding her fingers up in an appropriate gesture.

"Query - Can you cook oil?" HAX entered the picture and asked 'Jordan.'

Jordan turned her head toward the droid and raised an eyebrow at him.

"Suuure...? I think..."

The woman offered to help Jordan up.
"Come on," she said.

Jordan accepted the help and stood up, only to have the bartender immediately get in her face.

"Woman, this is unacceptable! Look what you did to my ceiling!" he exclaimed furiously, pointing at the gun-shaped indent above them, "That will take minutes to fix! I demand compensation!"

"Uh..." Jordan stammered.

"Could always go to the owner of the gun," the woman sighed.

"Wait!" the bartender looked at the ceiling, "By jove, the gun did this! I shall blame the gun! So sorry for the confusion, miss."

He politely bowed-out and stepped away.

"Oookay..." Jordan drawled.

The quartermaster leaned over the captain.

"I think we should hire her, too."
he whispered.

The woman facepalmed again before turning her attention to the Captain.

"Hi, I'm Cleret Anders. Nice to meet you," she said, finally introducing herself.

"Jordan-Li Sasaki, at your service!" Jordan declared dramatically with a bow in a random direction, then added in a hushed-tone, "Who are we talking to, Cleret?"

"Hopefully someone who'll actually pay us for a change," Claret replied in kind to Jordan.

"Yeaaah... that might be nice. Means I won't get jail-time for assault again." Jordan agreed.

"We'd be happy to have you ladies." the quartermaster stated, "Marty Maroni is the my name, I serve as ship's quartermaster when out in space and merchandise in high-quality goods when at port."

He then gestured to the captain:

"And this is Captain William Walls, or 'Wally' as we call him."
