Fayth nodded, leaving the repair work to the science, security, and engineering crews in the bay. She really wanted to get to work on that, but captain’s orders. She followed Andone and Rainns out. She was relieved it hadn’t been anyone malicious, but the possibilities were both dangerous and promising, for the time being. She was also relieved it hadn’t been an issue with her…condition. She entered the turbolift, “Bridge.”

=^=Fayth to Weir and Asam. Report to the shuttle bay for a field trip.=^=

Fayth and Genard appeared awhile later. She got an update on the repairs and then headed over to the modified shuttle and spoke to the pilot. After a moment he stepped in and began his preflight sequence.

Caelian’s voice came over the comm after a moment. =^=Weir to Fayth. I’m on my way.=^=

Several moments later, the engineer trotted through the entrance, toolkit in-hand. He gave an embarrassed grin as he approached the group. “Sorry for the delay. Got a little turned around. Where are we headed?”
—Caelian Weir, Engineer—

Fayth turned to Weir, “En Weir? It’s nice to finally put a face with the name. As soon as Asam and Genard get here we’re heading out in the Fulcrum science runabout. We’re going to test that new engine you and Genard designed. Then we’re going back to the nebula. Those energy pockets Riley told you about, we’re going to try and get one in a box and see if we can use it.” The pilot stepped out, “Ready to go Lt, whenever you all are on board.” Fayth considered paging Asam and Genard again, but it hadn’t been that long, she was just eager to get started.

Caelian blinked. An engine test? But we’ve already finished modifying the ship, he thought wryly. After a moment of additional thought, he nodded. A test flight would have been a more prudent move given the circumstances. The Ark Angel could afford to lose and replace a shuttlecraft if something were to go wrong. If nothing else it would give him an idea of how the larger vessel would perform, allow him to make any necessary adjustments.

A smile crept onto his face when she mentioned the energy pockets. “I’ve been going over the readings from the initial encounter with it. It’s got interesting—and very promising—properties. I’m very curious to see how the energy is generated, or what holds it into pockets instead of allowing it to disperse. I’ve got a few experiments I’d like to run myself, assuming we can analyze or harness enough to go around.”

“Since we’re waiting,” he murmured, turning his attention to the shuttlecraft, “I’d like to familiarize myself with the modifications, learn where everything’s located.”
—Caelian Weir, Engineer—

“Of course, by all means. Genard has been injured and won’t be joining us. I’ve checked his conversion process and it checks out, but you and he are the experts.”

After everyone had arrived Sharah stepped on board the Fulcrum and closed the hatch. She stepped up to the cockpit feeling very strange to be in charge of this outing. She took a deep breath and pushed her nervousness out. There was enough noise and waves without her adding to it. And the ship was becoming distracting with everything else. And if they were going back to the nebula she was going to have to be very careful. Getting a nod from their pilot that the preflight sequences were done and they were ready to go, she pressed the ship’s communication console. =^= Fulcrum to Ark Angel. This is Lt Fayth. Requesting permission to disembark.=^=
Lt jg Fayth, CSO

After a moment a reply came back =^= Ark Angel to Fulcrum, permission granted.=^= In her head, Sharah would feel Joseph’s thought attached to the reply ‘stay safe’.

Lt. Jg. Joseph Rainns- COS

=^=Thank you Ark Angel, Fulcrum out.=^= In turn he would hear her answering reply, ‘I will. Enjoy the Big the Chair.’ Sharah nodded to the pilot and soon the shuttle was steering away at impulse speeds to get a fair amount of distance from the Ark Angel, just in case.

Caelian was glad that his seat at the engineering station was far enough from the viewports. The moment they were clear of the Ark Angel, he started a diagnostic cycle on the modified systems. So far, so good, he noted cheerily. As a precaution, however, he drew the tricorder from his hip and set it where he could watch both it and the runabout’s monitors.

She turned to Weir and Asam and Allendor when the shuttle came to a stop. “Alright let’s see what you came up with Weir.” Sharah moved from the small bride area and further into the runabout to where the new engine had been set up. She checked the chemical conversion that Genard had set up to make sure the Boridium was processed correctly. After that it was all the engineers.

“Aye, sir. Bringing modifications online now.” His hands danced across the console, eyes alert for the responses. “Primary and secondary containment systems are holding. Intermix pressure is fifteen hundred kilopascals, nice and steady. All systems operating within expected tolerances, no deviation. Releasing interlocks and switching main drive to stand-by mode.”

The lights in the cabin dimmed only briefly as the runabout’s power systems effectively changed hands. Caelian watched both the ship’s readouts and his tricorder for a hard moment before nodding. “It looks like we’re ready, Lieutenant. You should have impulse power at your command. Once we’re ready, I’ll start scanning for energy pockets.”

After a moment of thought, he tapped a few keys and modified the deflectors as he had aboard the Ark Angel. While the runabout’s modifications operated on the same principle as the larger ship’s, the smaller system would be a touch more fragile and thus require closer attention. Being stranded in a duranium box was not his idea of a fun time. Let’s hope these energy pockets are nice and docile.

Mazi had remained relatively silent for the start of the trip. Her antennae perking up now and then as conversations went on around her. Once they had stopped and set the experiment, she had only been a fringe part of the new engine and was intrigued as Caelian moved around it with perfect ease. She liked watching him work. His way around the ship made see him as a doting parent overseeing his children. The systems each being a special thing to him as if it were alive. It had made her view the Ark Angel a bit differently. And even now, sensing that things were about to get interesting, he was calm and cool. Yet she had the strange sensation that underlying it was an excitement he was keeping to himself.

Taking up her own station in the copilot’s seat to monitor the readings as they moved, she nodded to Fayth. “We are ready here as well.” Moving out of the copilot’s seat to allow the CSO to occupy it once more, she remained nearby in case she had to respond to either her or Weir. She flashed the young engineer a smile and nodded her head in reassurance.
