A slug captain hails and invites himself aboard your ship to present a flask of something slimy.

You take a cautious gulp. It's foul, but doesn't do any lasting damage. It's a thousand to one chance, but this Slug actually seems to be trustworthy. He casually celebrates your newfound trust by repairing part of your ship and offering to sell you his wares.
*10 hull repaired and a store appears.
2. You take one gulp and wake up with the rest of the crew in the cargo hold... which contains noticeably less scrap than before.
This confirms you are actually an 'unseen captain' who runs the ship.
It'd be great to actually have him/her in the game. Possibly already having that +20% crew damage (Like Captain Kirk ) and who gets you a 'Game Over' if he dies. Something like that'd be a fair tradeoff.
