Engineering - Main Sim

While monitoring the ship status as it moved quickly into the system, power levels directed toward shields and the tractor beam the engineers peering at the Master Systems Display noted the smooth redirection of power as needed, and the yellow flash as power levels strained with the tractor beam working at the peak of its capacity.

Then, without warning, there was a sound of tearing metal, a concussive thud and shift that pushed them against the display that flashed and went out as did the lights in engineering leaving them in the dark with only some wall systems LED’s providing light. Sirens blared and the ‘feel’ of air rushing through some rent in the fabric of the hull was felt for some seconds before it suddenly halted.

Lights came on, but dim and red emergency lighting that didn’t help the dread felt. One by one the Master Systems Display blinked on, red showing where there was green before, computer information scrolling faster than anyone could read along the side, but a summary showed …

Damage reported to have cut primary power feeds from engineering. Secondary power was at 83%
Engineering areas were the most affected with much showing red
Torpedo tubes 3 and 4 were offline
Phaser array 7 was showing primary power interruption and was online
Power for metaphasic shield generator was showing yellow - possibly compromised
Overlapping shield generator showed damage in the Deck 19 area. The damaged area would have weakened shield power there until repaired.
Penetration depth was several meters from the debris that was still lodged in the hull spanning four decks
Power to Deck 18 was off .. primary anyway. Secondary power was on.

Somewhere in the dimness there was the sound of someone screaming, and shouts being heard ..
