About this creation
Roll for jargon translation: 1: critical failure!
"Agh... so heavy..."
"Ah! That's got it."
"So, any other bright ideas?"
A: Read, watch and listen to the various logs?
B: Fiddle with the lights?
C: Attempt to close the outer airlock?
D: Give the computer a kick, for not telling you what an 'MT' is?
E: Try to repair the network?
Quoting Caleb Cutlass-Crocodile Blanchet (Am I right? Does it connect in anyway? Does it really matter? This guy is destined to die anyway...)
Nope, the network is what connects that terminal to all the other computer systems aboard the ship. In all likelihood, fixing it would just allow him to update the information already on the terminal to more recent versions, and... um... well, let's just say that all the systems in a given part of the ship connect to the nearest terminal, so if someone unpleasant has access to the security system, in theory, he can use the ship's security system as his eyes and ears and repairing a previously offline part of the network would provide him access to previously inaccessable cameras. I say in theory because security systems need different passwords for different things, so the password to gain access to the security terminal is different from the password to turn on any defensive systems, which in turn is different from the one to access the cameras, which is different from the one for the microphones. Unless the Chief Security Officer has his passwords written on a convenient piece of paper, but who'd be stup!d enough to do that...

D. Kicking anything usually makes it work (except for a politician, in that case, you get a nice visit from the local FBI)
Alright... let's see. "A" would be helpful if our intrepid hero was getting ready for his nap, he'd probably love a good bedtime story. Besides perhaps learning why the lack of other poor souls or why he's here, which might be useful info later on, that kind of thing isn't going to be important. As for "B"... good gawsh, man, what wasted use of your non-existent fingers.
"C" could prove helpful if we're trying for the 'moving on' approach...
"D" Good-heavens, no. The poor thing has gone through enough trauma!
"E" I hope this guy knows how to handle computer-ey things, because without such knowledge he isn't going far. Actually - I think "A" or "E" would be the best choices, these could lead to opportunities and may not have too terrible consequences, at the least. "E" is my choice.
Oh no... I must have said something offensive in my last comment - it made a be-line for the Mods. I'll be disappointed if it doesn't get posted, seeing as its length did take some time to conjure up, but what the heck. In short: I went with "E" because I get the feeling that ties up with getting the airlock closed. (Am I right? Does it connect in anyway? Does it really matter? This guy is destined to die anyway...)
