“Looking for a Korea Sootret,” came the voice trying to call over the background noise of engineers moving equipment, the soft but insistent thrum of the warp core and the screeching sound of metal being pushed into place. It was a bustle of activity that was met with a great deal of energy. Crew mixed with starbase workers and engineers as the ‘crunch’ came for getting things finally done.
A tall, trim Denobulan woman, the prominent, curved bone ridges of her face tattooed in a range of color that accentuated her long hair, also colored, the most prominent being a deep crimson. She wore navy blue coveralls that were distinctive to the starbase engineering group that was a familiar sight these last weeks while all the impulse engines were being replaced and the repairs through the ship were done. The name patch on her coveralls also bore her rank, a Lt Porta. In her hand she carried a thin, if large tablet.
“Hey el tee, you’ve got a visitor,” a senior chief said from the close to the door.
Pullling her head out of under the warp core, Koria looked back towards the door, before quickly ducking back under. She finished securing her work, before grabbing the railing and using it to help pull her up from where she was laying on the floor.
“Keep tweaking the 5th inverter. For some reason it keeps slipping out of alignment,” she said as she walked towards the entrance. On her way she grabbed a rag out of her kit and started wiping her hands. She had been in and out of different access hatches all day, and long since removed her uniform jacket, and was down to just the tunic.
Finishing wiping off her hands, she made her way over to the Denobulan. “I’m Lieutenant Sutret. What can I help you with?”

“Kee Porta,” she said, a too wide smile distorting her face. Sutret would note that Porta also had a shade of make-up that accentuated the tattoos. It seemed a contrast between her attention to such detail and the relatively plain coveralls. “I’m assistant to Commander Carter. I’ve heard that there is an old earth saying that,” and here she shifted to an accent that was not quite but close to Terran, “It ain’t over till the fat lady sings.” Commander Carter is not fat and he sings poorly but he was singing the praises of your people and the station refit teams and that he was pulling them out to now work on the Thames. I have here the sign off to place anything left in your hands, Lieutenant.”
She shifted the tablet she had to show it had a release form. “The impulse engines are new and needs a shakedown cruise to fully test. So too your SIF and Inertial Dampers have been almost completely refitted. They have been tested in short flights but you’ll want to tweak them as you go.” It sounded like she was reading from a list but wasn’t looking at anything. “Is there anything you want me to bring back to the Commander?” she inquired.
