Mission: All out there...
Location: USS Timmis
Timeline: Current - Immediately after "When It Rains, It Pours"

ON:

=/\= Mo'Bri to Cmdr. Lawson, we have a problem here. I need to see you ASAP =/\=

"Of course..." he muttered. "When it rains, it fucking pours..." To the Chief Engineer he simply said =/\= I'm on my way. =/\=

As soon as he was transported back to the Timmis, Lawson headed directly for Main Enginering. When he arrived, he found the Chief Engineer in deep conversation with one of her underlings.

"So what's the problem up here, Chief...? he asked.

Her head spun around quickly in mid sentence and quickly dismissed the young engineer. "Cmdr. Lawson, we have a problem here. We have roaming power outages from a ruptured power tap and plasma constrictor. We fix one system and another power system goes out. I am getting reports from non essential areas but if we can't find the main reason for this loss of power, I am afraid it might run into the main parts of the ship", she said at length. Her face showed the frustration of not being able to nail it down.

He listened carefully as she explained what was happening, then shook his head. "As if I didn't have enough problems to deal with down on the planet," he said slowly. "Have you tried shutting down sections of the EPS system one at a time and seeing if you can isolate the problem that way?"

"We have attempted that three times and it triggers a new power tap going bad. It isn't triggering the sensors or the safeties. I am beginning to think maybe it might be in the computers systems or god forbid the gel packs", she said, shaking her head. She had a major headache from the stress of this problem.

Once basic engineering was passed, Lawson was at a loss. After all, his experience was in flight, not engineering. "So what's your next move? We can't afford to lose power to the transporters because we're about to start bringing aboard injured and refugees from the colony."

"Sir...I...", there was a tap and another tap and suddenly there was a sudden hissing as one of the plasma constrictors near the warp core suddenly exploded, sending her flying at the XO to get him out of the way of debris. Small fires sputtered around the consoles near the plasma constrictors as they burned which triggered the fire suppression systems there by putting them out quickly. The XO got to his feet slowly and looked around at the damage, "Sir...are you OK? It would appear that this looks like a computer issue giving mis-commands to the systems. I will have Eric go over the computer core to see what he can find. I am afraid that warp drive is off line, but I know, I'll get it done in half the time some how without losing the transporters and life support", she said, trying to get some of the dirt off the XO's tunic.

"I'm okay," Lawson responded quickly as he straightened his uniform. "All I can say is do the best you can and get the warp core back on line ASAP. If the planet starts to break up because of all the tectonic activity, we may have to warp out of here in a hurry."

"Understood sir, we will do our best", she said, turning her head and hollered, "Eric, Thomas, Hawk, now!"

All three came out of the smoke, "Yeah boss", they said in unison. "You know your specialties, get to it. We are wasting daylight and latnium", she said smiling at them. Now just where she was going to start was a good question....
