When being assigned to the Railjack

“You are the Captain? Fascinating.”

“Ready to come aboard, Captain.”

“Captain. I am fully trained in both manual and administrative labour. You have made a wise choice.”


Idle

These are quotes said by the crewmember as she wanders the ship in between tasks.

“Ah. Tenno.”

“All is well, I trust? Excellent.”

“I observe some of your kind develop neck cysts. Why is this? Do you ever need help to pop them? Is it possible to catch the Infestation from a warframe?”

“I have taken the liberty of drilling samples from the hull for analysis. [short stammer] I assure you, there is no cause for alarm. Cephalon Suda gave her full authorisation.”

“We have too many weapons. I propose replacing a turret with a tachyon wave analyser. Significant data returns may be anticipated.”

“Observation. This vessel is golden age Orokin tech, restored to full functionality. Secondary power systems appear to be orgone-based! Fascinating.”

“Voicelog. To ease the absence of Cephalon Suda, I have begun a friendly discourse with our shipboard Cephalon. I genuinely think he likes me.”

“Field research is far more stimulating than data aggregation. My compatriots at the Suda hub would give their internal organs to be here.”


When being assigned to a role

“I can.”

“Roger.”

“Shall do.”

“Understood.”

(if unable) “I cannot fulfil that order.”

(if unable) “I cannot do that.”

(if unable) “Unworkable. Apologies.”


When killing a fighter

“One less fighter.”

When a task is complete

“Logging task complete.”

“Attention. Assignment done.”

“Instructions carried out!”


When the Railjack has suffered severe damage

“This vessel’s hull cannot withstand much more damage of this kind.”

“Our hull is becoming excitingly sparse.”

“I suggest greater caution. We do not have a spare hull.”

“If the hull damage gets any worse, we shall have an amazing view of the cosmos.”


Hazard on board

(fire) “There probably should not be a fire here.”

(fire) “This vessel is on fire!”

(hull breach) “Breach. Losing atmosphere!”

(hull breach) “It is freezing, and windy, and— there is a hull breach!”


After repairing hazard

(fire) “Fire is gone! Fumes… are not. Whooo.”

(fire) “Fire is out!”

(hull breach) “This breach… is closed!”

(hull breach) “Breach closed.”


When health is low
