All of the above is warranted. I don't think much can penetrate starship-scale shielding.
OOC 3 - back in the saddle
"Mok? You in one of the turrets? Feel like pitching in?" Between the two of them, they ought to be able to make pretty quick work of anything in the hanger bay, as well as the side doors.
Open foot, insert mouth.
The camera's easily blastable, maybe not from the door but you figure you can hit it while still outside its field of view.
I figure we could use as many on the "away team" as possible, right now. Gatac appears to be incommunicado at the moment, so Erit's not doing much. If Erit were to take over the autocannon, Jileeza could join the others for a little extra firepower. Does this seem reasonable?
Of course, it might also make sense to hold Jileeza and Erit in reserve, in case they need to rush in and rescue the others. What do the rest of you think?

FYI: Gatac is on vacation IIRC.
BTW, Luke was fairly competent with the Falcon's guns, so I didn't think Erit would be unable to use them.
That said, what's the plan? I don't need to describe every inch of this complex, nor do you guys need to make decisions about "the right door vs. the left door". Instead, let me know generally how you're proceeding:
- As cautiously as possible, sweeping every place a camera or enemy could be, checking every room? (in this example, given the layout described in the IC thread, you'd blast the camera, check and clear all 3 storage rooms, and clear the end-of-hallway door and whatever lies beyond that before proceeding with the turbolift)
Proceeding this way will be safest, but you also risk running out of time and being separated from the Chance when "whoever it is" arrives.
- Proceed cautiously, but only towards objectives that seem to be leading you further towards the goal of freeing the ship? (you'd blast the camera, maybe peek in the last door, react accordingly, but then take the turbolift without touching the storage rooms)
Obviously, you run the risk of something you missed bushwhacking you, but the chance of running out of time is lessened to compensate.
- Charge? (basically proceed, blasting everything in your way, hoping you don't miss the controls that extend the proverbial bridge)
You may gain a bit of surprise by reacting with overwhelming force and speed, and if you don't completely miss vital rooms, you stand a good chance of being gone before your "mystery captors" even arrive. Of course, this way is a kind of "all or nothing" gamble.
I vote for a cautious but determined advance.
If you want to try something else, let me know, otherwise I'll continue on.

If you wanted to, someone could watch the monitors in case any ships arrived. Or, tell you what, I'll say that since Arnae's watching the ship, he can do that from the security station, and be able to make it back to the Chance before the hangar doors are fully open, if such need arose.
