Backstory: Jim Gantry was born into a wealthy enough family that he never faced any serious problems growing up that might stem from financial issues or being spoilt. Instead, Jim became a standard nerd for the most part. His dream was to become a pilot, but on applying with SpaceCorp for an apprenticeship instead got offered a spot as technician. Knowing that he'd at least be working with spaceships, Jim took up the job knowing that if he spent a few years he'd probably be able to transition into something he actually wants to do. Well, one day he was timing launch times for Space Hoppers and started guessing the results before he checked the stopwatch. Exactly right, every time. His coworkers and by extension SpaceCorp took note of this (earning his namesake) and it seems his future as a ship technician is now cemented. Still, at least he gets to work on Spaceship Zero. A chance of a lifetime. If only he could go up there, with the crew.

So begins...
