The crew heard a distress beacon from the HSC Pizza Party. Scanning the job boards, they saw that the HSC Pizza Party was a prototype ship made by the Highebeam Syndicate that had gone missing during testing. Highbeam offered full salvage rights to the ship to anyone who brought back the ship's hard drive.
The crew decided to investigate. They found a strange signal emitting from the ship. Upon deciphering it, they found that it was broadcasting Message in a Bottle by The Police. They cautiously approached and hailed the ship to see if there were any survivors, they received text responses from a survivor named "Pi."
They went aboard and quickly discovered that the Pizza Party was devoid of all signs of life. Turns out Pi was an experimental AI that accidentally cut life support to the crew. The crew decided to trust Pi and granted it access to all of the HSC Pizza Party's systems and found out that there were pirate ships incoming. The crew fought the pirates off with the help of Pi and the Pizza Party.
Believing Pi to be too valuable to give up, the crew offered to transfer it over to their ship and protect it if it helped them out. Pi agreed. Fearing retribution from Highbeam, the crew salvaged what they could of the Pizza Party (a 2-use "1d8 Salvage" Asset) and destroyed the rest, leaving no evidence behind of their presence and headed off towards their next mission.
