Walker nodded, “Just what I was thinking. Better safe then sorry, and we can always tweak it again after they finish repairs later.” Sliding into place Walker used a spanner to manually readjust the receptors. He kept an eye on his tricorder as he slowly adjusted the settings. Making one final turn, they finally lined up back to what was considered the default settings.

Making one final check of the systems, that everything was back to the way it should be, he snapped the tricorder shut.

“All good?”Faye asked.

“And that should be good for the engineering teams later. We just have to wait for them to do the cleanup.”

He slid the spanner and tricorder back into his kit. “So where to next?”

“Section 84. We can re-jig my set-up there and complete the loop. Once everything is installed there, we can do a test on the rate, and you know, make sure no more explosions happen. I’ll let you handle the power adjustment during the installation. You I think I can trust,” she said idly. But reality was that Faye didn’t easily trust anyone. Darach had sense though and had demonstrated it several times already. He was someone she could work with.

Gathering up her tools and supplies, Faye eased the antigrav cart through the jefferies tubes carefully. The section she needed was next to their current position but on the other side of that line of bulkhead, so they had to get into the parallel tube.

“I’ll take that as a compliment Lieutenant,” Walker said as he grabbed his kit and followed along. “I’m just here to help, I’ll let you officers figure out what is important or not.” Walker chuckled.

She snorted.

“Plus, explosions tend to ruin my day. Something about the fire and the exploding part.”

“They tend to suck, big time,” Faye agreed.

Taking a look at the bulkhead numbers, he noted where they were heading. It wasn’t that far to section 84. Really though he was more curious how all of the updates that she had done went together. Because with what information he had so far, he didn’t quite follow.

“So, how many junctions did you have to modify for this little project?”

WO Darach - COO

“Twenty-six,” Faye said simply before glancing at Darach. He’d know just by the bit he’d already seen that that had meant hours of work at the individual junctions along with the connecting cabling through the systems. “The jefferies tubes and I are very well acquainted.”

Pulling out her supplies, he opened the compartment to expose the network of cabling in and around the manifold. Faye sat with one knee up and leaned in a bit, pointing out things as she talked. “So, basically, we take the manifold and add a processor to the exiting power supply. Think of it like a baby firewall. It slows things down. This particular part of the system is in a key spot of the ship. The info relays are equidistant positions from the computer cores and the sensor suites and communication relays. This is one of two funnelling points where we can catch bad data.” She lifted up her cylindrical device and smiled softly. “And this beauty will be our extra interface that I can change how we process data, or shut it down entirely. Whereas normally you’d have to kill data transfer from the inciting point or the receiving end, with this I can have better and more precise control to kill it at any juncture along the pathways.. That and I can insert additional commands to override anything should a virus start trying to modify our systems before they hit the cores.”
