Grenade Miss/Scatter

If you throw or launch a grenade and miss, where does it land/detonate?

Might not matter much with most small grenades, but it would if the Blast is 7+. Those have a wide radius of (usually) low damage potential...

Despite its crunch, the game encourages narrative solutions to these sort of problems. That failed grenade roll should have some massive implications. What would be the most interesting? Does it go off next to an airlock on a ship? A fuel container? A friendly PC? All of these are possible, though you may need to spend a DP or 2 so that your players don't feel like you're being overly cruel.

The only unacceptable answer to your question (IMHO) would be that the grenade goes off in a corner where nothing happens.
