Mike and Kristi exited the turbo lifts while the others continued towards the shuttlebay.
“Stick close to me. There shouldn’t be anyone here, but you never know.”
Deck 30 wasn’t large, and there wasn’t any crew qurters here, just phaser arrays. After walking for a minute they had to stop though. The outer hull was missing with half the phaser array. They could see out in the space.
Mike shook his head. “I have no idea what is happening. The ship’s without most of the power. I doubt out integrity fields have any juice left. This should be vacuum now. Not that i’m complaining.” He sighed deeply. “It feels like I failed my mission. If I learn this was a sabotage, I doubt I’ll be able to see myself in the mirror again. It was the one thing i was sent to investigate and prevent. I’ll be lucky if i get the rank of ensign if that is the reason.” He shook his head, as if to shake the negative thoughts away.
“We should head back to others, before they leave without us.”

OOC: Just wrapping things up.
Both of them managed to get to the shuttle. It was packed already with people, more then it’s regulations permitted, but this was an emergency.
“Get us out of here, Ensign.” Mike said to the HELM. “Run every scan this shuttle has. Spectral, termal, radiation, everything. Maybe the science department can figure out what happened.”
The shuttle was already prepaired to leave, so moments later they were already out in space. As they rushed away from the Viking, Helm put the rear view on the screen. It left everyone speechless. Holes the size of a runabouts were littered all over their old ship. The most suprising thing to Mike was, that there wasn’t any plasma leaks, or explosions from shorts. The holes, although different in sizes, looked too perfect in roundness. It wasn’t as parts of the ship would be torn away, no. It looked more like a ball formed, and everything it touched it dissapeared. A weapon? Sabotage? Anomaly?
Mike looked at the surrounding of the ship, but couldn’t find any visible threats. Before escape though one of his deviced he planted notified him of an encoded message, bearing Section 31 markings. Could this be their revenge on Viking? Some members did have ties to this secret organisation, that much he knew. But he left everything he had on the ship. He had no proof of anything. Just the feeling of failure in his mission remained.
