I invited a few fleet mates (all the same faction as me) to join me on my ship.
my "superior" decided to tour my ship. He goes down to the engineering deck, and is ATTACKED, unprovoked, by my transporter chief.
My fleetmates defended themselves, and killed my Chief. BUT I'm told this is NOT the first time this has happened. (BTW it happened on both an Fleet Avenger and C-Store Ops Ody.)
