When being assigned to the Railjack

“Hello, Captain.”

“Captain. What is your policy on plants? I have… several.”

“Do you expect we will visit Earth? The green reclamations are so beautiful. Even the burial grounds.”


Idle

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

“Hello!”

“Bless the day that’s given!”

“Mother bless our Captain, and keep them safe from all corruption beyond the firmament. Mother bless our crew. Mother keep our provisions free from worm and mold. [big sigh] (through gritted teeth) Mother bless Cephalon Cy.”

“There are more cells in my body than there are galaxies in the universe. Eight hundred billion more. Figures like that help keep one’s ego in check.”

“Take the time to stop – and listen – to your heartbeat. And thank the Universe for making you. I assume there’s a heart somewhere inside all of… that?”

“This all seems like a fever dream. Maybe it is. Perhaps I’m still at home, in my bed, safe on Earth. How do you live like this?”

“I’m getting used to it here. I can’t smell the recycled air anymore, and the lights hardly ever give me a headache.”

“I was going to bring my little purebred kavat on board. Ship’s cat. Good luck. But then I thought, ‘What if there’s a breach and he gets sucked out?’ I’m sure Ticker will take fine care of him until I get back.”


 When being assigned to a role

“Yes.”

“Got it.”

“Right away.”

“Of course.”

(if unable) “I… can’t.”

(if unable) “I cannot do that.”

(if unable) “I wish I could.”

(if unable) “I can’t.”


When killing a fighter

“Fighter shot down!”

“I have destroyed an enemy fighter!”

“The sky is one enemy clearer!”

“Die in flames, invader.”


When boarded

“The enemy has breached our sanctum.”

“Invaders! You shall be rebuffed!”

“Friends! Stand your ground, and fight!”


When killing a boarder

”Their will is breaking! They can be killed!”

“You fight well, friends! Do not relent!”

“We are pushing them back!”


When completing a task

“All done.”

“I’m done. Anything else?”

“My task is complete.”


When the Railjack has suffered severe damage

“This aged vessel cannot take this kind of treatment.”

“We have lost armour plating!”

“We must keep the hull intact!”

“If ships felt pain, this one would scream.”


Hazard on board

(fire) “Fire!”

(fire) “Friends, we burn!”

(hull breach) “Our hull has been penetrated! We are losing vital oxygen!”

(hull breach) “Hull breach! Bigger than my head!”


After repairing hazard

(fire) “Fire extinguished.”

(fire) “Fire quenched.”

(hull breach) “Sealed the breach! Repressurising. I need to check my plants.”

(hull breach) “Patched the hull.”


When health is low

“Friends! The enemy threatens to overwhelm!”

“Friends! To me! And may Mother safeguard us all.”


When downed

“I will not die here. I will not. Aid me!”

“Aid me… ere I breathe my last….”


When revived

“Thank you. I’m sure you have no need of a ghost aboard your ship.”

“I thank you.”


When another crewmember dies

“Mother, I consign my friend’s soul to your loving arms! Give them peace.”

“Our friend has departed our company. Travel well. We will meet again.”
