When being assigned to the Railjack
“It happened! It finally happened! I’m getting off this planet! I owe you, boss. Big time.”
“A Railjack! What a superb vessel! I expect most conflicts are over before they’ve had a chance to begin!”
“I promise you will not regret this transaction. I’m proud to call you Captain.”
These are quotes said by the crewmember as he wanders the ship in between tasks.
“Ah, good day!”
“Sorry. I was daydreaming. Thinking of all that space out there and the amazing people in it that we can talk to. Myconians, cephalons, the Entrati… even Sentients, maybe, one day. We’ve just got to believe.”
“You don’t need to learn the other guy’s language if all you want to do is plant an ax in his head. But trade? That means communication. And once you understand what he’s saying, you realise you’ve got more in common than you thought.”
“Ergo Glast is what you call a true philanthropist. He could’ve had it all, but a little thing called conscience tripped him up. Did I tell you I almost spoke to him once?”
“You know, I expected space to be a lot more empty. Hopping pobbers have we been filling it up with stuff. I guess that’s what happens when you build machines that can make other machines.”
“I always get a little jittery going into the Void. Keep thinking I’m going to see Parvos Granum looking in at me through the window. Or something even worse.”
“People used to think coins were sacred. They put the faces of Gods on them. You could tell the future with them if you knew how. If you hold a Granum Crown in your fist, you’ll notice it always stays cold. What’s that tell you?”
When being assigned to a role
“You got it.”
(if unable) “Afraid that won’t be possible.”
(if unable) “Heh. I wish.”
(if unable) “I… can’t.”
(if unable) “Ooh. Sorry.”
When killing a fighter
“Ooh, right in the finances.”
“Boarders. Oh, this is gonna turn ugly.”
“People coming aboard! Violent people!”
“Boarding party! Aw, heck.”
When killing a boarder
“Bad guy is down.”
“Are you okay? Oh, this is bad!”
“Killed someone. Sorry.”
“Target killed. Oh, dear.”
When completing a task
“Done and done.”
“All squared away.”
When the Railjack has suffered severe damage
“It’s gonna be bad for morale if the hull busts open and we all die.”
“Hey guys…? This hull takes any more pounding, we’ll lose our deposit.”
“Can we please look after this ship a little better?”
“This is bad! We’re losing hull integrity!”
Hazard on board
(fire) “Fire! Fiiiiiiiire!”
(fire) “Oh sweet Void, we’re burning up!”
(hull breach) “Oh mercy, now we’ve got a hull breach.”
(hull breach) “Breach! We are losing air and personal possessions!”
After repairing hazard
(fire) “Uhh, I dealt with the fire!”
(fire) “Fire’s dead. It’s out. …Okay.”
(hull breach) “Sealed the breach. This Revolite is truly amazing stuff.”
(hull breach) “Breach is fixed, and I feel safer already!”
When health is low
“This is NOT going well. A little help?”
“Backup? I need some backup, I think?”
“Hope this medpack’s still in date. Oop. Yes.”
“Breaking out the ol’ Corpus emergency medkit… ahhhh!”
“Ooh, the cold hand of death. Medic?”
“I feel just awful about this, but I kinda need a doctor. Immediately.”
“You are a true friend. Thank you.”
“And just like that, the pain stops. Thanks.”
When another crewmember dies
“I think we lost someone!”
“Crewmate down! Oh boy.”
