Arkady fires his Shuriken SMG on the charging pirate. As this happens, the wounded tech crawls out of the room and out of sight.
The hail of bullets strike the space pirate with ease, but there is a reason heavy armor is called heavy, and the majority of his bullets are deflected; however, it's a pretty tight spread and half a magazine of ammo is nothing to sneeze at (-1 AHP).
But the mercenary doesn't slow and he fires his Avenger while he runs. Despite Arkady's cover, the pirate's aim is solid and the Avenger's shots clip the infiltrator in the shoulder when he leans out to fire (-2 SHP). There is an electric "schwoom!" sound and Arkady's shield goes down. And to add insult to injury, he just used up a good bit of ammo (Ammo score -1).
The pirate is practically on top of him. Looks like he's planning to tackle Arkady.

Arkady cloaks and then attempts to slip around the charging the pirate. To his credit, the pirate doesn't this to happen which is probably why Arkady is able to slip by him without the pirate noticing until the mercenary is practically atop him. By this point, the pirate tries to grab Arkady but misses completely.
Arkady hops over the table blocking the door and then ducks down behind it. The pirate spins around and begins firing wildly behind him, but doesn't hit anything.

Arkady ratta-tat-tats, but while he lands a few good shots on the pirate, none of the bullets pierce the heavy armor.
The pirate fires as he runs. This guy is quite a good shot (he keeps rolling 3's) because his shots strike the newly regenerated armor and pierce Arkady's shoulder (1 HP). When he reaches the table, he leaps over and attempts to kick Arkady aside. The pirate misses, so Arkady has a chance to hold his ground or slip away, but his cloak is on cooldown this round.

Arkady gives the pirate the slip, and then charges for the tunnel leading to the back entrance. The pirate gives chase and fires on Arkady, but his shield kicks in just long enough to deflect the bullet. The pirate has to slow and switch out for a fresh magazine while Arkady does the same for his SMG, then he runs down the tunnel. He runs until he reaches the mobile unit overlooking the analysis area below (the previous room), but before he can proceed any further, a strong, deceivingly feminine hand reaches out and grabs him. He is pulled into the mobile unit.
"Shut up," Lisben whispers. She pulls out her shotgun and the weapon mechanically whirls while it unfolds before Arkady's eyes.
The pirate appears at the end of the tunnel and charges. The moment he draws close to the mobile unit, the mighty Asari steps out from cover and fires on the man with her Katana shotgun. It rips a nice hole into the man's armor (-1 AHP). The pirate stops dead in his tracks, then tries to spin on his heel to run away.
Arkady notes the magazine he switched out makes another sizeable dent in his ammo reserves (Ammo -1).

Asher's smile faltered. "Really? Uh, okay, I'll give it a look." Asher plopped himself down in a chair and began examining the terminal. He poked a few keys before the screen changed. "Ha! The idiot made his name the password. Okay, that was easy. Let's see what I can do...well, I can shut off the lights, but that won't help us much. I can unseal the doors and disable the security cameras in the salvage zone, but why would I do that? We don't need to go down there. I'll download the map to my omnitool though. Could be handy."
The engineer stared at the terminal for another moment before finally leaning back in the chair. "There's not really much I can do from here, although there is a weapons locker down there I can unlock if you don't mind making a short side-trip; otherwise, there is no good reason to enter the crashed ship. We're here for the pirates, not salvage."
"Hurry up!" Lisben said. "I can hear voices."
Asher groaned. "That guy must have called for reinforcements. Well then, shall we engage them here or somewhere else? Your call, cap."
Lisben frowned. "The locker is unlocked. Did you plunder it?"
"Nah, they're using an encrypted signal over a custom relay," Asher said. "Even if I break the encryption, the relay will garble the transmission without the right interpreter. We would have to find the relay and then hijack their interpretor program. It would be a lot quicker for you to just take that guy's helmet."
"That helmet is a heavy design," Lisben added. "You do not have the training, but I do."
