I really wonder if those ships really will be shiny when they are disabled hulks? If they are, then those slaves must be rewarded with an.... Extra air tank.
Or an extra ration. An extra air tank really costs a lot when you think about it. Unless you find some tank of another slave that died earlier?

Or to avoid the fuzz and get a free air tank, tell him his living area is a airlock and vent it when he's there, saves even more money  ;D

Indeed. But the slave still has his airtank on him, so I see it as a effective way to make him work more ;D

He does need to refill it 8) Well, too bad really if he didn't think about it before returning to his chambers:P With his tank on. If he took it off along with his suit thats too bad as well ::)

Slave is such a politically charged term, lets just call them Employees who's continued survival is dependent on doing a damned good job.

Indentured servants?  ;)
I don't know, I think of em as clone troopers... Hopefully that'll change in the future because they'll be more awesome.

Basically we need an entire slave rank. Which is High quality labor yet low quality ship handling. Where occasionally your captain will vent one of them to keep them in line in which case you will see a person leaving the ship and just falling away. The captains personality would then have a say in how he handles slaves ::)
