IC: Liam bit back a sarcastic quip as he focused on the task.

“We already know the inhibitor field works as we used one on one of the biobeds, saving an officer. Signal boosters help, but only for a whole room. Several aren’t even close enough for a whole ship.” He sighed then continued.

“I suggest trying the probes first. If they fail, we can consider the shuttle based on what we learned. The probes can also move for the best coverage.”

Kurok chimed in, “Shields would be an option as well” he said with a frown.

Liam’s eyes shifted to Kurok. He quietly exhaling his breath out through his nose and replied. “Shields weren’t mentioned as an option earlier, unless I didn’t catch it. How would that work?”

He turned his head to study the man and hear out his idea. He wasn’t an expert in Engineering after all.

“Has the downside of making our shields unavailable but in theory, the shields could be adjusted to give the same field that is being used in sickbay locally. I read about it in a mission report somewhere, where they turned the shields into holoprojectors. Probes could do the same thing but we’d have the devil’s own job moving around and keeping them in sync with the ships… however, that’d still leave us with shields functional for other things…”

“Shields might have better coverage and is what we need. If the crew can’t get to their stations and something happens, we’re sitting ducks until the probes move.” Liam commented then looked to the two men.

“I think the shields are best. We just need to ensure everyone is ready to protect the ship in a worst case scenario.”

–CSO, Liam J. Madison, Sci

Kurok’s eyes narrowed. “I could try and create a workaround to put the shields back into defence mode quickly from the new configuration. Regardless I need your help to calibrate the shield matrix to block the transporter signature. That’s more your department than mine”.

OOC: To double-check some research, the shield matrix would be located where? Based on what I learned on Memory Alpha, it’s the physical components for generating and projecting the energy screens. I want to assume they are or are connected to the shield generators due to my understanding and logic. If this is right, the specs state there are 5 shield generators on various decks… so Liam’s got a lot of grumbling and running to do unless he can access it through the computer? I’m just checking to make sure I’m on the right page before I reply. I will admit, watching him grumble and run around would be funny.
