The whole ship shivered like a human struck down with a cold and when Feya looked outside the window to her left, she saw the reason why that was so. The vessel was on a reentry trajectory, and it already began its descent through the atmosphere of the planet. Without those thrusters fired up, she was as good as dead.
“Ssstupid Florans! They wreaked Feya’sss ship!” she cussed.
There was no time to waste now. Step by step, she approached the AI command console.
“SAIL there?” she asked when she reached it.
“Bzzzt! Error! Error! Error! Bzzzt!” the AI was unable to reply, it kept repeating the same words over and over.
She tried pushing the buttons on the touchscreen, but none of them worked.
“SAIL need to be stabby stabbed too.” she said and crouched down.
The reboot button was right under the console. It was protected by a glass case and kept safe from any possible accidental resets. Feya opened it and pushed the button. As a result, the console’s screen went dark.
Hope Feya not broke SAIL. thought the Floran as she looked with worry at the screen.
A moment later, the console came back to life, and with it, the lights in the ship and everything else. Still, it was too early to let out a breath of relief.
“SAIL turn on ssstabilizer thrussstersss! Bring usss into orbit! No let Feya’sss ship crash!” she commanded.
“Understood.” came a short reply.
