Cochrane chuckled and then watched for a moment. After a minute or so, his brow furrowed and he asked “What does ‘Cascade Failure of Central Processing Matrix’ mean?” in a slightly apprehensive fashion. In his mind, he was laughing. There was no error, but that wouldn’t be any fun, now would it…

Faye’s eyes went wide and he’d hear a very colourful set of Klingon and Romulan curses muttered as she pushed off from her workstation and slid over to his. Frantically, Faye began checking the readouts to see what the hell was going on.

She turned her head to look at him, brows raised. “Not funny Cochrane…” she said, glaring at him slightly. It was hard to stay too upset with him, but her anxiety about this entire project had been high enough for awhile now that Faye had to force herself to exhale slowly and calm herself.

Alex laughed and said “Nope… very funny, Calloway. And that’s was an impressive litany of vulgarity. Well done.” and he laughed again. He looked back and watched the readouts some more and then said “Temperature spike in sub relay seven. Not kidding, but not a big one, either.”

She was going to toss out a cheeky remark about her cursing skills being a great asset but his additional reply and tone made her bit e that back. She peered at his screen and nodded, sliding her chair back to her workstation. “Alright, I’m going to adjust the power flow in the adjacent sectors and see what happens. Tell me what you see in response,” she said, her fingers moving at a speedy but controlled pace.

There was a pause and then he said “Temp is leveling out… might wanna try diverting… maybe five or six percent power… to section 11, its running a bit cooler than the rest. Might have the bandwidth to handle the increase.”

“Roger that,” Faye said, checking the pathways and the current distribution levels. She opted for five percent, since it was a very reasonable assessment and diverted the power. “How’s it looking now?” If all was good they could move on to Phase two, which was the exciting one, but also the diciest.

~Faye Calloway, Data Specialist

“Looks good. All segments in normal operating range.” he said with a smile.

Cochrane, CO

Inhaling, Faye nodded and began to enter a sequence of commands. “Okay, moving on to Phase Two. A section of data is going to pop up for you registering the total load on the new system. It should stay below forty percent. If it get to thirty-five, let me know. If it jumps above forty, let me know asap, okay?” she said as she hit the start command that turned the individual devices on.

~Faye Calloway, Data Specialist

Cochrane nodded and said “You got it, boss.” and he watched each device came online. Calloway onew her stuff, and as the devices came on one by one, the load went up incrementally… but never crossed more than thirty-one percent. “This time I wont mess you… but no promises after this.” and he smiled at the screen and chuckled.
