Posted June 8, 2022, 7:56 p.m. by Lieutenant Junior Grade Alex Sheridan (Chief Engineer) (Mason Marcy)
Alex had been hoping that he wouldn’t have to deal with any emergencies while he familiarized himself with the Challenger. But now all hope for an uneventful acclamation had been abruptly shattered as he watched the warp core go offline followed by the lights. Already halfway to the main diagnostic console in the center of the room by the time the crimson emergency lighting kicked in, Alex called out, “Report!”
“We just ejected antimatter pods near the cargo bay, and sensors in that area are picking up anomalous readings. probably a malfunction.” came the reply from one of the engineering staff.
As he reached the console, Alex called the bridge =/\=Sheridan to bridge. does someone mind telling me why we just ejected most of our antimatter supply?=/\= Irritated that he hadn’t been informed before the pods were ejected he began working on rerouting power =/\=the core just went offline, it must have been drawing antimatter from that side of the ship. Main power is out all over the ship, I am attempting to reroute power from the impulse reactor, hopefully it will be enough for main power in critical areas. Unfortunately restarting the core will take me most of twenty minutes because we didn’t shut it down properly=/\=
This was going to be quite the day…
