Jerome got to the bridge door , and looked for boobytraps.

'Am at the door - any other suggestions before I see how well armored it is?'

The airlock closing off the bridge was foreboding - covered with reactive plating, with two metal irises in the roof that likely concealed gun turrets. Certainly, the Captain trusted his crew! Jerome just hoped that they were not automatic, and the ensign didn't know how to use them. A console with a full keyboard access panel and an iris scanner was located right next to it, provocatively - if he only knew the code.

Autumn found itself presented with the AI's metallic cat face on the screen, which recited: "Pod access and launch disabled. Emergency pods are locked down, because Gods, Monsters and Men, must die together in the end. Enter override password please."
A keyboard panel slid out.
Thank you, AI, very helpful.
 
To Autumn's pleas, it answered: "Unknown user profile. You are not crew."
Then, the on-screen avatar licked its metal paw with its metal tongue, uncaring as any cat she had ever seen.
"Captain, the buttocks are moving from the pink into the red and purple spectrum! We cannot maintain this rate of spanking any longer!"

Autumn struggled to control her inner fury, resisting the urge to accent the screen with a few well placed paw strikes, instead entering the first thought that came to mind for the password.

"Ragnarock." She spoke it out loud as she typed hoping on blind luck a half recalled bedtime story would prove sufficient.

To Jerome she quickly replied, "None at the moment, just look out for any tricks inside the door, this nutter doesn't seem the type to go down quietly!"

She switched to her external communications. "Captain, your presence is required in engineering immediately!" She raised her to voice to a near roar, hoping the chimera captain was close at hand, and could assist with  overriding the atmospheric purge and locking down the bridge.

She switched back to internal com, "Get that first mate down here Sunny! We need her to bypass the override!"

Chimera captain, rescued crew, I don't care who gets here first as long as they are of use.

Sunny grabbed Irina's hand and told her: "Alright, we're going to engineering!" Together they darted off through the corridors.

As Sunny dragged her off to Engineering, the realisation that she was without a preassure suit wasn't lost on her. "We'll need to be in suits just in case. I think there's one back in the med-bay. I'll go back for it if there's no way I can get us onto the bridge."

Irina also put out a call through to the captain as they passed another intercom, just in case he didn't heed the newcomer's roar.

"Is our ship in position to fire on the bridge?" Jerome spoke as he pulled out two of his blast bots - ambulatory grenades.  A few quick commands, and they scuttled up the walls, positioning themselves besides the irises.  Orders were simple - on open, move in and detonate.

The grenades would not likely be of much use to blow the hatches, but any guns that popped out would be unlikely to survive a close explosion like that.

A thundering, scuttling sound alerted First Mate Ivanovova to the Captain's presence, she heard his slobbering and felt him reach out for her. The Kotiri in her accepted this as part of natural communication and greeting, whilst at the same time the Human part shuddered, slightly disturbed by this display.

"Captain, see if you can get onto the bridge by using your personal override!" and if we make it from here I'll make sure all officers have such a code! she promised herself silently as she ran with him to the entrance to the bridge.
