    I rev up the engines for evasive patterns

    I also rerout non essential power to sheilds and weapons.

    “I suggest we LEAVE NOW.”

    “I suggest we LEAVE NOW.”

    as you say that, the gate suddenly glows with the brightness of a supergiant star.

    Begin avoiding the attacks.

    "We need to get out of here!"

    The controls suddenly become unresponsive.

    The ship shakes violently as it's pulled towards the unstable wormhole, along with the now crippled august and the thousands of ships, now in a panic as they are pulled towards the gate...

    "Oh no! This is bad, this is bad, this is bad... Why it's shaking so much?! I didn't sign up for this!"
    Nope! Nothing here!

    Did you see this?

    I seal the airlock on my lab, and lock the door.

    I switch my peace cry to an SOS call:

    "Mayday, mayday... This is the accompanying ship for the USS August... We are being fired upon by an an unknown swarm of ships. Mayday, Mayday. The bridge has been blown off of the August, and the enemy is still attacking."

    Launch all turrets, and if they are available, raise the shields.

    "How's it looking up their Captain?"

    "Alright everyone, let's keep it together. Time for ranting later. Not much we an do right now but strap ourselves in and hope for the best, so that's what I'm going to do."

    I use the straps on the bed in my room so I don't bonk my head on something, and wait for the shaking to stop.

    Time to update this list:

    Lab notes:
    • Desk
    • Plasma microscope
    • Hyper-sink
    • Containment bay
    • Normal lockable door to my bedroom
    • Single exit: Airlock door to the rest of the ship
    • Dashboard, with various capabilities
    Bedroom notes:
    • Very small
    • Bunkbed and a small space below that for "living"
    • Lockable compartment for personal use
    • Single door is lockable from the inside
    • Bed has restraining straps
    Dashboard notes:
    • Two way radio
    • Turret control
    • Proximity Early Warning System 2.0 (PEWS2)

    You reach the wormhole.
    All goes dark.
    Next thing you know. You are all thrown in every direction at once. Before. You were traveling at faster than light speeds. But now... the ship is traveling faster than your mind can comprehend. Looking out the view port causes you to nearly go insane. The fanric of reality. Laws of space itself. It all seems to fold and tear as you rip through space.
    Just as it begins. It ends. The ship is dark. Artificial gravity is offline. You fall with a thud as it turns back on and take a deep breath as the life support enables

    I undo my restraining straps and rush over to my dashboard. I do a systems check of the ship and check my PEWS2. Specifically I'm looking checking to make sure the turrets still function, see how the shield is doing, and see if my chocolate cookie stash is still intact.

    EDIT: Nice name change

    it's all ok. Minimal Damage.

    The Deep Space Location Array, or DSLA. is taking a lot longer than normal to locate where you are. The DSLA works by using common reference points to locate where you are in the galaxy.
    After a good 10 minutes, it finally concludes that you are... 25635 light years away from earth

    Yep...
    No recorded maps of the local area.

    Behind the ship is a gate, similar to the one that shot you here, this one seems like it blew up while a supernova happened, it's in a bad shape. It's clear you can't use it to get back.

    "I agree with Louis, let's get going."

    I sit by my PEWS, and constantly monitor the systems and area the surrounding the ship in my comfy, although worn, office chair, with useful restraining straps for 0G.

    The sensors flair up as a rather large ship jumps into the system,
    A quick status report says you have enough fuel, supplies and warp fluid to travel about 5000 light years and last 1 year in space,

    I fire up the engines.

    “At some point soon, we should stop somewhere to resupply.”

    I send out a signal to the ship: "We come in peace. We are low on fuel and are lost. Please respond if you receive this message." As usual, all known frequencies, all known languages.

    Contact is made with the alien ship
    It's speaking an alien language,

    you two don't know what the fuck your saying.

    The Ship quickly gets stuck in a tractor beam

    I attempt to pull us out of the beam using the engines.

    “CAN SOMEONE FIRE AT THE BEAM EMITTER?!?”

    Since no one listens, I fire a feedback pulse up the beam.

    this is gonna go well

    I attempt to pull us out of the beam using the engines.

    “CAN SOMEONE FIRE AT THE BEAM EMITTER?!?”

    nothing works, no controls. the engines are dead.

    Fire the guns I have control over at the beam emitter.

    no matter how hard you mash the gun buttons, nothing is fired

    Same here. Fire all turrets at the beam emitter.

    the turrets are scrambled, and the guns don't fire

    A comm comes in,
    On the screen is an alien figure. They look humanoid in nature, but have a second pair of arms below the normal pair. Their ears go over their head and connect above and have no hair.

    A garbled alien message comes in, you have no idea what it means right now, the beam is still pulling you in.
