5. Blackout



27 and 11's avatars float in the dark
27: What happened?
11: There was a low-grade plasma leak. I shut down the coupler group to prevent any more radiation from entering the ecosystem.
Various service drones scramble about on the plasma couplers, as 27's physical self drifts in orbit
11: Unfortunately, the sudden ion pressure tripped the backflow traps on the other couplers' mag-bottles.
27: Oh no... so that means...?
A view along the hub, swirls of dark plasma encroaching upon it
11: I'm afraid so. The plasma injectors have completely shut down.
11: The hub is going dark.
10: Yep. Great job, you two.
