    Teleport Access
    Throughout the long winding corridors on many of the decks, you'll come 
    across certain teleports which only provide access to the first level of 
    each type of work category (Engineering, Research etc). To reach 
    Research Levels 2 & 3,you'll need to find other teleports.
    "What's Happening?"
    It always pays to find out from other members of the crew "What's 
    This way you can keep up to date with the latest events. You won't 
    always find out what's actually happening, but whether it be the 
    engineering crew unhappy about human experiments, or the medical crew 
    fighting against the latest radiation victims, at least you'll know 
    something. Remember, knowledge is power.
    The Need To Know
    Once you've spoken to various people aboard the Icarus station,
    "Special Information" will become available to you. This means: - You'll 
    gain access to other levels on the ship,
    - You'll become involved in other plots,
    - Earn respect from other crew members.
    Let's face it, we need to know everything that's happening, it's human 
    Of course, other natural acts certainly become appealing, especially 
    when you take a shower with Hamie Lucis in her quarters (just remember 
    to bring a paper bag - Teri Hatcher she's not!).
    Different Strokes
    Each member of the crew has one of four basic character types: Dominant, 
    Submissive, Silly and Serious. Handling the individual should be done 
    carefully, so insulting them is not a good idea. Even a little charm can 
    prove disastrous. And yes, I know what you're thinking, "Maybe if I used 
    a little charm on a young lady I'd get a little action." I'm afraid not, 
    I already tried it. Well I suppose you'll save yourself a few seconds 
    there (what, twice!). If the
    character seems submissive (Malichek), you should issue a command, eg 
    "Give me the Radiation Report". However, if the character is quite 
    dominant (Dr Luvey),rather than being forceful and sounding like an 
    arrogant prat, you should talk in a friendly manner.
    The Cliques
    There are 62 people aboard the ship. Not only do they fall into four 
    mood types, they also fall into four job categories: Engineers, 
    Scientists, Medics, Security. As you'd expect, being stuck on a bucket 
    of bolts that's heading for certain death (always the optimistic!), 
    there's bound to be a little friction.
    The Engineers basically don't like the Scientists due to a major 
    difference of opinion. So when you help an Engineer, those stuck-up 
    smartipants Scientists are usually a little less likely to lend 
    assistance later on.
