Hmm.  Well, next level your omin-tool bumps up to level II.  

A light kinetic barrier wouldn't be a bad idea, and you can spend a Caliber pick to buy upgrades for your pistol.  A good holster and an ACOG would be solid investments.

Glimm, one's omni-tool comes with one Caliber I kit.  Can you add more kits to an omni-tool if you purchase the kit separately?  (I think so.  Am I correct?)

For feat training, Caliber 3 options I like: Traceless (a little bit).  Cal 2: Armor Basics, Dash (kind of), Mingling Basics (kind of), Superior Cover.  Cal 1 (feels like a waste, since I can only have 1): Clean and Polished.

The only other option that seems worthwhile to me is one and/or several gadgets and/or explosives.  In that case, the gadgets I'm considering are EMP and EMP hardening, DR, silence, maaaaybe x-ray vision, and possibly some ordinary explosives to fill out any remaining picks I have.

Which leads me to a question I have for LordK.  Can we expect any hacking conflicts?  Normally I avoid them like the plague because they're just so impossibly boring, but in a pbp, that might not be an issue.  The answer will greatly influence whether I hang onto my security software or not.

As far as omni-tool is concerned, I don't think it would be a problem for standard gear, where you get it as an extra on top of whatever gear picks/mission caliber things turn out to be.  Favored gear sets the caliber at 1/3 your level.  But as with a lot of things, it doesn't translate smoothly into the big score gear systems.  Or maybe not, favored gear is a bit of a strange feat anyway.  Using extra gear instead might be better for the next edition.

A light kinetic barrier wouldn't be a bad idea, and you can spend a Caliber pick to buy upgrades for your pistol.  A good holster and an ACOG would be solid investments.

Glimm, one's omni-tool comes with one Caliber I kit.  Can you add more kits to an omni-tool if you purchase the kit separately?  (I think so.  Am I correct?)

I have a light barrier already.  Weapon upgrades feel wrong for the character, and I hope to avoid more fights than not anyway, but I'll have a look.  Also, I read that bit about the kits wrong, I thought it came with all caliber I kits.  That helps with this dilemma somewhat.

At least some of this is dependent on player approach. But since neither you nor I are particularly gung-ho about them, I see it as more likely that if you were to propose a course of action that seems more important than a single skill check, I'd likely break it down to a Complex Check script with different skills for some stages.

Awesome.

Also, I have solved my gear conundrum.  Discovering that I still needed to get kits after all was quite helpful in that regard.

I read that as the omni tool functions as any cal I kit as needed.

Zane can drive a small ship on instruments from the engine room, right?

Yes, but unless you have a spotter or a video cam you're driving blind. I'd call that a minimum of 1 upgrade but feasible with a Jury Rig check.
