The Unifying Force
It’s a long-standing tradition that pilots and crew serving aboard New Republic vessels refer to the the pilot’s tapcaf as DownTime, regardless of what it may actually be labeled. Serving as part coffee-shop, part bar, and part diner, DownTime services the crew of the Rampart as a meeting place for off-duty hours relaxation, drinking, and gambling.
Rampart’s DownTime is equipped with a full bank of HoloNet screens which when the Captain has given incoming signal permissions (usually when not in an active area of operations) display everything from galactic news networks to sporting events and more. When available, screens will also be used to display duty rosters and intership communications such as addresses by the Captain. It also features a full bar stocked with food and drinks for the multispecies crew and manned by an imposing Wookiee woman named Shallatobuck, though everyone just calls her Shalla. Crewmen in the mood for Sabaac will find tables equipped with the necessary hardware while the more contemplative will find an array of books stored within DownTime’s databank for download to a personal device. Serving droid FL-055Y known as Flossy to the regulars flits about on her wheel delivering orders and crossing wits with pilots unaware of the droid’s peculiarly good grasp of sarcasm.
