New refrigerators are 'smart appliances' these days.
"smart" meaning it does everything someone else tells it to do, and ignores you.

Imagine all of the built in smart capabilities on a starship.
sky's the limit.

Only thing I can think of that wont result in automatic ranged laser fire is nuclear demolitions rigged as limpet mines on the ship, surrender or detonate.

If you do get a hack done, I'd capture the ships boats first, then hack, then induce the ship to jump. That should give a really short period of reaction so they can't break your hack in time, and the ship's boats' likely cost more then their entire Ticket pay and most megacorps are not sanguine about the plus expenses including replacement costs for expensive small craft, so a negotiating point.

Plus those boats could give you travel options if needed.
the only jump drive in this system is the one we brought with us which the systems people don't know about, i cant induce a jump. the mercs and everything are from in system and we are the only outsiders. We also don't have ready access to our ship because....the GM Said so basically so we cant say 'we're done with this adventure bye', he promised a sandbox of traveller fun and then walled us into a tiny kitty litter filled corner of a round sandbox. the best part is he intends to follow this up eventually with trumped up charges and Prison Planet.

Yes, I'm arriving late. (I blame the Jump delay.)

If it's not too late, you need to talk with your group and your Ref. Some change of scenery or of personnel seems to be in order. If the rest of the group also is unhappy, a 'temporary different campaign run by another Ref' might help.

If you are still stuck in that prison-of-an-adventure … can your character invent Virus and infect the mercs' ship? -devil-
