The characters were scouring thier new ship for materials when a bounty hunter blew a hole in the ship, sucking out a player character. The attacker then exited his spaceship and flew on ethereal wings through the hole before trying to intimidate the players, thinking they were pirates. When he discovered that they had dealt with his problem for him he agreed to split the payment. As an aside, the bounty hunter was the backup character for the guy who just died and the player wanted to play him sooner rather than later. They then went back to Absalom station to get repairs and supplies.
