If asked, I'll give the Republic officer a detailed damage report on the Lomhead. Other than that, I'll keep my nose out of the conversation and learn my way around the remainder of the cockpit, memorizing the important controls and doodads for potential use later on.
I'll also prep a transmission back to the Lomhead for when the current call is done.
