Please rethink and rewrite this post. I see no justification for “out cold”. A hot gun was tossed off the top of the shuttle, a voice hissing in pain was heard. No one reported an explosion, a fall or a serious inhalation problem. It would at least require a roll to establish that, and I would normally leave that to the player concerned unless everyone else was blocked from progress and the player was unavailable or had given prior support for it.
Let us also be very careful not to tie down the story with rank. We have two Lt. Cdrs. Matsiyan is going to assume that everyone will simply act as a team to support the mission objectives. For story purposes he is going to avoid giving orders wherever possible or creating bottlenecks relying on permissions.
