Incident Description: This is a report of multiple rounds interacting with Catherine. Most of my interactions with her has been her degrading me and others for not being as good as her. At this point it feels more and more personal rather than in-character interactions.
Situation 1: Nanites.
I made a simple nanite setup as a roboticist whilst waiting on resources from the miners, just to keep myself busy. I got the usual healing stuff on and some utility like Subdermal ID and Monitoring. However, Catherine asked to see my nanites and I obliged. When she noticed it lacked the ability to defib a dead person she immediately demanded for the nanites to be removed from her overall and promptly left. Not offering to help me or anything, simply doing so to insult me.
Situation 2: Explorers.
I was a Explorer and simply wanted the RCD for a minute to set up a volumetric pump on it as a kind soul had shown me previously. I took it and Catherine showed up shortly after, knowing me over and stealing it. This devolved into me trying to get it back from her and telling Security she stole it. The other explorers help out and eventually after having many bottles of glass thrown on me she gets Beepskied. I take the RCD and set it up and we leave. She threaten there would be consequences. Said consequences… involved recalling our shuttle whilst in space. I and Eats-The-Sheets ended up being stranded on the derelict station, one explorer was stuck on an asteroid and the other somehow got back to the station. Sheets and I had a really interesting situation which ended up being fun as a player, but it did not soften us up for Catherine once we got back. We ended up going too a bit too far by wanting to kill her which I understand was mildly self-antagonizing as I was told by an admin in round.
Situation 3: Toxins.
Recently I’ve been trying learn toxins. And while I am not the fastest or best toxin player, I am trying to learn and understand it. This was not good enough for Catherine. Usually she would scream, knock me over and tell me she would have done it in 8 minutes. After a few failed attempts trying to do toxins and making it a plasma man sauna, I’ve finally, learnt how to do a max cap. Not with any of her help though… she would mostly complain about my setup and not help in anyway but to stress me out. Ironically, the reason I did try to learn toxins is because she and possibly others said you shouldn’t play RD if you can’t do toxins over OOC.
Situation 4: Shuttle.
After seeing The Real Captain make a shuttle I figured I’d have a go at it. Already had plans for its structure and such and what it would include. I spawned as the RD as this would give me the RD budget card to help me with the shuttle. This is of course thanks to Catherine speed running toxins in 6 minutes. I had also requested from Lucy the Xenobiologist a few stabilized metal to help with the shuttle and it would simply be a secondary project while I wasn’t needed elsewhere. However, Catherine heard this and felt excitement for once. She had previously stated to me that Science was boring to her and she would speedrun research and then mess around for the rest of the shift. So she was happy to work on a shuttle which is great, sure! She wanted a singularity on it. “Excuse me, what?” I heard with the CE about it and they said it was a bad idea. Catherine did not like hearing this and constantly bugged me about setting up a tesla. The word ‘no’ wasn’t in her vocabulary and she simply rejected the very idea of not doing it and refused to leave it for another shift. Whether or not she was truly serious I did not know. But, she was then hanging out on the shuttle and putting down wires despite being told nummerous polite and later inpolite times to leave. She refused. I called Security to it which never arrived. I tried disabling her and zip tying her and kicking her out which did not work as they were two and would disrupt it. Eventually, she did leave, but she did not stop and now wanted to yell over comms 24/7 how I am bad and the shuttle is for everyone… The shuttle I specifically asked the Captain to be given permission to construct. After the incident, and some other issues, I was tired of the whole situation after made an announcement and cryod. Congratulations, Catherine. Superior joy killer. Shuttle ended up getting at least partly built when I checked on it 30 minutes later or so.
To summerize she appears to only care about top notch efficiency and will actively degrade those who don’t know any better or ruin for those trying to learn or trying to do something interesting.
Additional Information: In all situations described here, neither of us were antagonists.
