- Prydwen terminals; Proctor Ingram's Terminal, Item 000377EM: "Type: Repair
Completed By: Ingram IG-444PR
Item: Vertibird Gunship "Vorpal"
Vorpal threw a rotor on its last landing, so I hitched a ride with Spatha and headed out to the crash site. Pilot did a hell of a job bringing his bird down in one piece. All I had to do was recover the rotor and set it back in place. There's some minor plating damage on the starboard thruster, but I'll hammer it down when Vorpal gets back to the airport. Was nice to get away from the Prydwen for once. Hopefully I can convince Kells to let me head out with some future patrols."
