As I leave Earth's star port I happen to notice a woman on the commuter who seems to be taking an interest in the shuttle's systems. Out of nowhere she makes a mad dash to the cockpit completely freaking out the pilots.

"You have to land this thing now!"

"What, the? Hey you're not supposed to be up here lady! Return to your seat now!"

Her response is one of legend as she knocks the pilot cold with a single hit and screams at the co-pilot.

"Land now or I'll do it myself!"

Taken aback by the the nap delivered to his partner the co-pilot complies. The second we hit the tarmac security swarms the tiny craft. Me and the crazy lady are pulled tot he side and detained, being armed to the teeth almost guaranteed I'd be lined up with her.  We're escorted to the back of a paddy wagon and as they're about to close the door the starboard engine on the commuter bursts into flames. The crazy lady now looks a hell of a lot less crazy.  I lean over and whisper.

"Did you know that was gonna happen?"

"Anyone with a brain knew that was gonna happen, the engine's harmonics were completely off for a type 218 Jumper, the acoustic frequency should be 480.3 megahertz but it was off by 30 megahertz and the most likely source is the plasma injector thermo-couple and since it was just the Starboard side that was off it was a logical conclusion that the starboard engine was in serious jeopardy. In fact the resonance was declining by 40 Megahertz per second while the pilots delayed. There simply wasn't time to tell anyone though."

"So you just took charge.  So you could tell all of that by the way the engine sounded."

"Yeah my trainers in the academy said I had a gift."

"So you were in the military?"

"12 years actually to tell you the truth I liked it a lot better than this gig, just endless hours of going over someone else's work and tons of mindless paperwork, but what else am I gonna do? The military life just wasn't for me too many rules too many proceedures, they're just too rigid in how hey do things."

"What do you do now?"

"You see those guys overlooking the shuttle?"


"I'm their boss."

"No shit?"

"No shit."

Sure enough the security guys discover her identity and come over to release the both of us, she's the only one that gets an apology though.  I head to the new shuttle that arrives but before I do...

"Hey Miss? What's your name?"

"Sabrina, Sabrina Walters."

"Well Sabrina, I have a ship of my own and I could use someone as skilled as you. You think you'd be interested in being my chief engineer? The pay is god and you could run engineering however you see fit. Whadaya say?"

"I don't know, I don't know a thing about you and I my job pays really well."

"I see, well let me introduce myself then, I'm called Obsidian Mask, and..."

"The same obsidian mask that stopped Dominion? The same Obsidian Mask who's second in command of the Sathari Empire? The Captain of the LIllun?"

Her eyes are as big as saucers, and her voice is filled with excitement, apparently I'm a celebrity?

"Yes, that Obsidian Mask."

"I've heard about your ship, is it true you use space-fold generators? Do you really utilize magical components with the on board ship systems?"

Okay, maybe my ship is more famous than me.

"While all of that is true Sabrina I'm not captaining the Lillun anymore."

"Oh" she says disappointingly

"I have a new ship called the Sable, she parked over there."

I gesture to towards my ship where several others are docked nearby.

"That one there the big black one."

"That is a bit smaller then the Lillun, it looks fast."

"It is, and it has nearly all of the same systems the Lillun has."

"Including space fold?"

"Space fold, Hyperdrive, and Warp Rings."

"Wait, how did you get warp and hyperdrive systems to work without causing an intermix conflict in the drive cores?"

"Um maybe you should ask the engineers I have.  Does that mean you'll take the job?"

"How much does it pay?"

I scribble a number down and her eyes get even wider.

"Are you serious?Is that annually or...?"

"No that's per month, just one thing."

"What's the catch?"

"You're bridge crew for all intents and have to attend all meetings for bridge members."

"I think I can handle that, You sir, have yourself a deal, I'll pack my bags and board ASAP."

"Good to have you aboard Sabrina, we depart in 5 hours."

"I'll be ready in 4."

We shake hands and go our separate ways, I start getting the ship ready for departure, I hope this woman is as good as she seems because I'm placing a lot  on her shoulders.  Still need to complete my crew the only positions open now are chif medical, Tactical, helm and science officer...I'm gonna have to go off world for the others I think.

Ha! Sabrina is a great character and this was a very fun and amusing introduction. Strong image to compliment the story too. Well played.
