|The opportunist waits for any chance to ascend in the ship's hierarchy, they will miss no opportunity
5 is a lot of points, but if this skill triggers more than once your ship is probably about to burn. While it is one of Stephen's objectives to strive for the Comms and Commander titles (2 and 3 people dead or inactive, respectively), and the can help in catching up on the work of previously inactive Comms Officers, a total of eleven crew members would have to be "indisposed" in order to get the full 15 (as the only person who is above Stephen in more than one list is Eleesha).
If this skill was not lost as a Mush, it might be more attractive for a strategically ordered killing spree. But as it stands it is probably the weakest skill around.
