Hakuoh Pirates ArcEdit
The Bentenmaru received a job to transport a bio-container that contained a number of cat-monkeys. After Marika had left the ship (since she wasn't needed for this particular job), a preset timer caused the bio-container to open and the cat-monkeys inside escaped. Five of them were carrying an infectious disease, which spread through the ship's ventilation system .
This resulted in the crew being infected and quarantined, unlikely to be released before their Letter of Marque expired, meaning Marika had to find a replacement crew .
