I agree - that man's too obsessed with mugs for his own good.

2 Distant travelers, in a small space pod, drifting. The battery cell is so low now, and they have only got one space suit. They didn't expect to get lost so easily, but the dark expanse of space encapsulates and surrounds. Their only solace being the ruined stations of progress long crumbled and defeated. The stars shine just as beautifully as if they were back home on station, as if to taunt them. The hunger only accentuated by the dread, causing a pit in their stomachs that continued to hound as they tried to concentrate on the Nav-computor, before it goes dark and becomes a useless black tablet- a blank tablet, fitting for the tomb that they might soon find themselves in.

3 days later, though the ship has long since been reduced to running only the most basic of functions, the travelers yet cling to life. Their beacon had died long ago, yet they hold out hope someone was listening at the exact right time. All of a sudden, a bright light appears. A ship? Out here? Traversing this exact part of space by sheer chance? Impossible, it must be rescue. The travellers hold out hope as the light approaches their pod, hoping that it is their salvation.

4 Red suited figures, faces obscured, their shapes only generally visible. Their headlamps flash over the pod, seemingly examining it. After a moment, a thud, reverberating throughout the small vessel. Is this their salvation, or yet another doom waiting to commit them to the afterlife? It was probably better than freezing and starving in the middle of space, what mattered now was- By how much?

In little more than five minutes, a light that had been faded away days ago suddenly shone again. Not just this light, but everything too. The power had been restored! Who were these figures, and why had they saved them? Suddenly, a message over the radio. "What, you didn't think we were gonna let the station die without a survivor to warn Nanotrasen about the guys who killed it?" And then, the ship vanished.
