(Kasey Huxley, Chief Engineer)

Shortly after the Valhalla dropped out of warp near the Nebula, Science called from the bridge wanting to modify the sensors for more accurate readings. Upon a quick review, Kasey approved the request and handed the project off to Petty Officer Mims.

With being his first trip on the Valhalla, combined with the upgrades from Starbase, he wanted to review the engineering logs with Chief Boboc and Lt Zh'zaanol.

“Engine efficiency was done by three percent, but that’s likely due to...”

The Lieutenant’s report was cut off by the red alert klaxon. As all three left Kasey’s office, he instinctively tapped his combadge.
=/\= Huxley to bridge, what’s the situation? =/\=

There was nothing but silence on the other end. Kasey tried again with the same results, and a glance at his companions told him they had the same problem. 

The comm blackout coupled with the red alert could only mean trouble. What kind he didn’t know, but a dozen different scenarios played through his mind. While there was no immediate threat to engineering, Kasey still took steps to further secure the room. A forcefield was erected over the warp core, and an isolation door was lowered to further separate the warp core from the rest of the ship.

Thankfully the sensor feed was still operating, allowing him to see what was going on outside of the ship. The sight of a consortium controlled starship wasn’t a surprise, but Kasey had hoped the comm blackout was the only issue they had to deal with. As that wasn’t the case, it was time for his engineering staff to multitask more than normal. Issuing hand phasers to the engineering staff, he gave out assignments.

“Mims, keep working on the sensor modifications. I’m sure the bridge won’t complain if we have a better view of the nebula. Belousova, Gray, make your way to the communications subsystem on deck three. See if you can restore ship wide comms from there. Ensign Shapiro, get with Petty Officer Brydern to coordinate damage control teams. Hollens, Stirling, there’s a chance the EV suits comm systems aren’t affected by whatever’s happening. If so, it could help our chances if there’s not a quick fix to the blackout.”

As the various engineers moved to carry out their tasks, Kasey turned to the other two with him.
“Guess we get to see what this ship and crew are really capable of.”

About that time, a few security guards burst through the main door with reports of a mutiny. If true, things just went from bad to worse. It also changed his course of action.

"Belousova, Gray. Change of plans. Take Maltby, and Bullen with you. Arrange for a sight to sight transport directly to deck three. Weapons on heavy stun and don't hesitate to use them. Boyce, bring a med-kit over here. We have a wounded crewman."

A brief barrage of phaser fire could be heard in the corridor outside, followed by silence. Then, a minute later the com system came to life.

The heavy blast door opened and several marines entered the main engineering compartment, their weapons at the ready. After fanning out to either side of the door they worked their way through engineering until they were satisfied that there were no threats. A couple immediately began to assist in caring for the injured while the other marines took up defensive positions.

Staff Sergeant de la Rosa lowered his weapon and tapped his combadge, opening a channel to the CIC.

"Staff Sergeant de la Rosa to CIC. Main engineering has been cleared and secured. No resistance. There are a few wounded crewmen and one fatality. Waiting for orders."

After closing the channel at his end, Domingo looked around the engineering compartment, "Who's in charge here?" he asked.

(Kasey Huxley)

The doors were opened, but several engineers had their phasers at the ready just in case. A sigh of relief came over the group as their own Marines entered the area.

Kasey approached the Marine who introduced themselves.
"Lt Cmdr Kasey Huxley, Chief Engineer."

Domingo nodded towards Kasey and then said, "Sir. We have secured this entire deck, you shouldn't have any further problems. To be on the safe side a couple of Marines will stay here until the crisis is over. Deck five has also been secured, so it is safe to move any wounded you have to Sickbay."

Once the attack was subsided and the damage assessments completed, it was all hands on deck to make repairs. The attack had also highlighted a few areas in which there could be improvements made to engineering procedures. While the attack was unfortunately, there was nothing like an actual real life situation to test things out. The fusion generators were a good example. If the assault had continued on much longer, it was highly probable more of them would fail. At some point those failures would start cascading, as the remaining generators took on more and more of a load. To try and prevent that from occurring in the future , Kasey had assigned a few engineers to study the problem and create a solution.

As for the upgrades wanted by the CO, some were easy to implement while others were going to take a little longer. Remote access to the systems was already a rarity, but now even more so. Only the senior officer and enlisted for each shift had access, and only while on duty. Anyone else wanting that level of access had to submit a formal request. It would slightly slow down things, but wasn’t likely to create significant delays.

Kasey was reviewing a few proposals to increase engine efficiency when he heard someone call his name. Setting the Data Padds aside, he turned to the visitor.

“What brings you down to engineering?”

As he entered main engineering crewman Blake hadn't really been planning to interact with anyone, let alone be addressed by the Chief Engineer. All he was focused on was finishing this survey for his section chief in damage control and then maybe calling it a day. After working almost non-stop over the last half a day, most of the major damage to the ship had been dealt with. Now it was just a matter of finding all the minor damage throughout the ship. "Ummm, hello Commander. I am doing a survey of the deck for any unreported damage and wanted to double check a couple of readings. I was showing a power surge in the main deflector control systems and wanted to see if the engineering power control system was showing a surge or if, as I suspect, it is an issue with needing to re-calibrate the deflector controls." He paused for a moment before continuing. "I am hoping for a re-calibration as that will be less of a hassle for everyone."

A power surge in the deflector should have set off alarms, but it wouldn't have been the first time an alarm had been overlooked.

"There's nothing currently showing up, but it's easy enough to check on."

Kasey headed out towards the main floor of engineering, and motioned for Crewman Blake to follow him. Heading over to the Master Systems Display, he pulled up the status of the power systems.

We're not showing any surges in the deflector control. Let's go ahead and try a re-calibration. If that doesn't work, we can revist the problem.

 "Bridge to Engineering. She paused for a few brief moments with another thought in her mind. I might have to go down there at some point to Engineering, Ryn grumbled. "What is the status on that damage we took during the last fight."
