Okay, I’ve passed the point I stopped in the first pass and the story’s beginning to move now. I’ve got a couple of people who are clearly pissed at the protagonist, and though he understands the immediate causes he has no idea why they are so upset with him for what seems like minor transgressions. At this point he doesn’t even quite realize just how much trouble he’s in.

A snippet: “Half an hour later I got something, but it wasn’t what I’d expected. Tien shot out of the port from Gamma work bay, diving right at me and looking like she was ready to spit nails. ‘What were you thinking?‘ she said, jerking to a halt with one hand on a panel edge.”
