Processing Scrap Issue

Last night, a friend and I inadvertently tried to process the same piece of scrap at the same time. He happened to do so successfully while my screen had the tick marks still counting up. The scrap disappeared, we laughed, but then I found that while he could continue processing, I could not. I would hold R on another piece of scrap, but nothing happens.

I've found that you regain the ability to process if you walk into a specific place on the ship. for the intrepid it was in cargo, and i think the annihilator has it near life support. you'll know you found it when the process option/bar pops ups again.

the spot might be the "center" of the ship

I get this issue a lot, it seems to happen when scrap a player is in the middle of processing disappears. I find that the easiest way to fix it is have the captain fill the Component slot with another component. It doesn't matter if the replacement component is scrap or not. I also find that the log file gets filled with a lot of errors fast, seemingly from this issue.
