The Last Will and Testiment of Captain Oni
For instance, I had a guy, Captain Oni. A rebel ship went and killed my entire crew via boarding parties. As one last effort I opened all the airlocks to space and vented the atmosphere, but after the O2 generators were knocked offline. So Captain Oni sat, the air growing stale, but managed to punch coordinates into the nav computer and crawled to the sickbay, where modern technology kept him alive despite no oxygen.
This next jump happened to take him to a traveling band of space hippies, which he befriended and they gave him gifts and told him to go to another ship. The following battle was hilarious and Captain Oni was forced to retreat. Then he found an abandoned space station with a girl, guy, someone named Kadreal. Together, they managed to repair the O2 in time and the Kestrel survived another day.
They met a teleporting giant space slug merchant and then were blown up in an ion storm by a remote drone that had one bar of health left. And so ended the career of Captain Oni.
Really, the game is great for coming up with these things.
