"NOOOOOOOO" Alice wailed. "Maybe I can stop the self destruct?" she wondered out loud.

"Fuck dat," says Hondo with a shake of his head. "We gotta go. Like right now."

Elsie walks over to the Enclave doctor and forcefully shoves the laser rifle into her face, pushing her back up against a wall. "Take us to the exit, before I decide to give you an extra nostril in the middle of your forehead." She pauses for a moment, and then adds "NOW, BITCH! MOVE!"

You follow the harangued Enclave doctor as she leads you and the survivors up and out of Robotics and into the Forward Cargo Bay. Hondo carries one of the injured men slung over one shoulder, and Marcus another. Frank brings up the rear, while Alice and Elsie walk point with humming laser death at the ready for anyone who decides to interfere.

Twice, distant explosions rattle the deck, sending it pitching wildly from side-to-side. As you enter a room labelled 'Forward Emergency Suite', there is a deafening explosion and the whole vessel rocks so violently that you are all tossed around like rag dolls. Alarms sound, and red lights spin and flash overhead. Over the rumbling and crashing the doctor yells
"That's a collision! Fuck, we hit something!" You stagger forward, noting that there are spaces for 12 escape capsules here; 6 on either side. However, the 12 sealed bulkhead doors (with yellow-and-black diagonal stripes) indicates the worst possible scenario - they're gone. All of them. They have already launched.

Emily immediately raises her hands and shrieks at Elsie
"NO! Don't shoot! Please!"

Frank moves up towards Emily and Elsie, and sort-of steps between them. With as much reassurance as he can muster right now, he tells the nearly panicked doctor "We ain't gonna shoot you just 'cause the escape pods are all gone. But unless someone's got a bright idea as to getting off this boat right now it won't matter, as the crash'll probably kill us all. Now, you're a doctor and presumably clever as all hell, got any bright ideas?"

Alice sulked in the corner, tapping away at the terminal.  "I told you we should have checked.  But there are more pods on the dorsal escape room."

Marcus kneels, lowers his head, closes his eyes, puts his hands together and begins to speak softly...to himself?

"Fuck, mang," Hondo murmurs, kicking idly at a bulkhead in frustration.

Elsie listens to Alice, then looks at Emily with a 'well, bitch?' expression.

After a frantic dash through rattling, darkened corridors, you climb a wildly-rocking stairwell and emerge into what could only be the hangar. It’s a good job too, as Marcus and Hondo are starting to look tired from dragging/carrying Andy and John’s dead weight (no pun intended…). This massive chamber is hundreds of feet long, and easily as wide and as tall as forward engineering. Nearby are three military vertibirds. Two are in pieces, and the parts have been scattered across half of the hangar area, but the third looks like its actually in fairly good condition.

You follow Emily as she weaves across the deck toward a set of 12 escape pods, but before you even get there you can see from the closed hatches that they have all already launched. Emily shouts
“SHIT!” and runs across the hangar deck toward a set of identical launch tubes on the other side. Naturally, with your recent run of luck, the other 12 are gone too. Looks like you’re too late. Emily clenches her fists, shaking with barely-suppressed rage, and a moment later, she screams “BASTARDS! They left me! They left me behind! And now I’m gonna die!”

Vlad, already on the ropes from his father’s recent demise, begins gibbering uncontrollably in a language that none of you understand, and Kate faints dead away, barely caught in time by Sharon as she sags limply to the deck. John hugs his wife and child close, and Joey bursts into tears. Annabelle puts and arm around him and sighs dejectedly, obviously coming to terms with her fate rather quickly.

Emily suddenly wheels around and spits a stream of expletives at Elsie.
“Come on then, bitch! Do it! FUCKING DO IT! Ohhh yeah, a bumper day for the wastes today – instead of banging together rocks in the gutter, you get to shoot a bona fide surgeon!” She throws her arms out to the sides, preparing for the shot.

As people skids to break down over the lack of escape pods, Franklin points to the seemingly intact vertibird and shouts to Alice. "Get that thing started!" He doesn't bother phrasing it as a question, as as far as he can see, it's their last chance to get out of this thing before it hits the ground.

When the civilians break down and Emily starts shouting, Frank feels his anger taking over again, but bites it down knowing it won't do any good right now. Nonetheless, when he strides over to Emily finishes shouting at Elise he looks like he's about to put his fist through her face. In an act of great restraint, he only gives her a mild slap on the back of her head.
"Nobody's shooting anybody, got it?" At this point he's talking loud enough for the civilians to hear him clearly. "We ain't dead yet, that means we got options. We just gotta find them, and standing around shouting or whatever ain't doing nothing but ensure we die here. Now get your head on straight and start thinkin' instead'a panicking!"

His piece said and with luck understood, he moves over to Elsie and leans in close to whisper in her ear: "I know you don't like her, but the way I figure she is too valuable to kill. A trained doctor would do much to help these people, she can pay off some of her debt to them like that. Keep pointin' a gun at her if you like, just... don't kill her, ok?"

He remains standing vaguely between Elsie and Emily, hoping the situation will defuse somewhat and waiting for Alice to hopefully start the vertibird.

Still sniffling at the impending loss of her airship, Alice scanned the hanger.  Her eyes landed on the functioning vertibird.  "Ooooh."  She looked around.  "Guys, who wants to fly out of here?"

Taking Franklin's shout as assent, she cradled Lady Joan and bounded towards the intact vertibird on a pillar of thrust.

Hondo watches the exchange between Emily and Marcus, saying nothing. When Elsie doesn't immediately shoot the doctor, he simply shrugs.

"A'ight, everybody onna flying thing," he calls, hefting his unconscious burden again and heading for the vertibird. He stops after a step, realization crashing onto him. "Hey guys, 'member when I said the Captain was gonna set the self-destruct? I just remembered that he also said *he* was going to escape on a vertibird in the hangar. I wonder if this is it? This thing look vertibird...ish to anybody or whatever?"

He calls out to Alice to be careful, but she probably can't hear him over her turbofans.

Yelling to be heard over the cacophony, Marcus bellows, "Thank the Lord!  Everyone into the Vertibird and strap yourself in!"  Marcus then continues to lug his burden to the vehicle.

After Emily's tirade, Elsie blinks at her looking slightly surprised. "To be honest, i'd completely forgot about shooting you." She grins in a slightly embarrassed way, adding "When we get out of this, if you're still up for it, i'll feed you to Tex, ok?" Tex looks up at Emily with big, watery eyes and yips at her.
