Under stock parts print
5 Pico Manipulators
5 Super Matter Bins
1 High Ultra Micro Laser
1 Rapid Part Exchagne Device

Upgrade Protolathe and Circuit Imprinter

Print 10 Technology Disks and put one technology group on each disk, you will ahve enough to do from Mateirals to illegal

Order a machine prototype crate from cargo as you upgrade the Ore Redemption Machine and drop off the technology disks.

While waiting, bug either the Captain for the Chain of Command, or break into the Clown office and dismantle their clown statue.

Build an exosuit fabricator while waiting for materials, preferrably just above the deconstructor.

Ask for:
Mining: mining Jetpack if no machine prototype
Captain: chain of command
Botany: glowshrooms, deathnettle if no combat 6, glowcaps, ambrosia gaia
Xenobio: charged slime core, sentience potion
Cargo: Machine Prototype

For upgrading make:
1 Bluespace Part Exchange Device
30 - 40 Femto Manipulators
30 - 40 Bluespace Matter Bins
10 - 20 Triphasic Scanning Modules
20 - 30 Quad Ultra Micro Laser
20 - 40 Quadractic Capacitors (If Available)
20 - 40 Super Capacitors (If Quadractic is not available)
20 - 30 Bluespace Power Cells (If Available)
20 - 30 Hyper Capacity Power Cells (If Bluespace Power Cells are not available)

For Priority Upgrades:
R&D
Robotics
Xenobiology
Ore Redemption Machine
Cargo Autolathe
Mechanics Pod Fabricator
Engineering Cyborg Recharger
Medbay Sleepers
Medbay cryogenics
Medbay cloning
Genetics
Medbay Chemistry heaters
Brig Sleeper
Perma Garden
Arrivals Garden
Dorms Cyborg Recharger

If Machine prototype was deconned, makeĀ 
1 Jaws of Life (For easier access to upgrade)

If you feel like being kind make another 10 Technology disks and take them down to Cargo for another 700 points after upgrading.

I can't get the mass-spectrometer

The mass-spectrometer was removed, IIRC- try replacing it with a reagent scanner.
