Imfletcher, you need a crew member, (or a few) for your ship. We can say that Churrr'Ipa was the engineer/technichian on board. There are several other characters that would also fit nicely into the crew. (Maybe they didn't all die in the crash after all) We need the cash to get the ship back up and running. That gives us all a hook and if we want to keep going after this adventure, we'll have a working ship to do it with.
