Not even a few minutes after the away team beamed down to the planet below the Europa shook as if something struck it. The computer chimed an alarm throughout the ship before main power failed and the emergency lights flickered on. Propulsion, weapons, shield, communications were all offline and the circulation of air seemed to have stopped so life support may have failed as well.

The Captain had been sitting in the command chair on the Bridge at that particular moment, and therefore managed to appear relatively unphased as Europa seemed to be instantly transformed from an advanced starship into a very large and heavy paperweight.

“Status report,” he said simply as the Bridge was then bathed in the red light of emergency power.

“Main power is out,” the NE at the Engineering console reported. “I mean, at least up here.” Without communications to the rest of the ship it was impossible to tell what exactly happened to the ship.

“Helm is not responding,” the NE at the Conn reported. Thankfully their orbit was stable before whatever just happened, but if it was something that had actually hit them they couldn’t expect to escape.

“My panel is dead,” the NE at Tactical said sounding defeated.

“Are sensors working? Any of them?” the Captain asked.

A science NE pulled out a tricorder and attempted to do a scan locally while not relying on ship power. “I’m able to get a reading by tricorder up to a deck or so away but I cannot get anything outside of the hull.”

“Okay,” the Captain said. He was initially a bit perturbed by the brevity of that report, but decided not to show it. Then upon additional reflection, it was very strange that the tricorder couldn’t read anything at all outside of the hull; with the bridge being at the top of the saucer section just like every other Federation starship, it meant that they should be able to get something nearby, even if “something” was just the vacuum of space.

“What does the reading say about what you can find a deck or so away? Is this power loss localized?”

– Johann Dvorak, CO

The NE made a hmm noise before tapping on the tricorder a couple of more time. “I’d like someone with engineering to double check, but it looks like power could be out ship-wide. The other decks I can detect are on emergency power.”

GM Dread

“We’re probably not going to figure out anything up here then,” the Captain then said plainly. “Why don’t you stay up here for now, in case the power comes back on. You three,” he said pointing to a group of officers (who could include anyone who wants to insert themselves and isn’t otherwise occupied) “come with me. We’re going to make our way to Engineering, even if we have to climb our way there.”

He already assumed that the turbolift wasn’t actually working, if the power loss was actually this bad, but just to make sure he did make a point to step in front of the turbolift door just to see what would happen…

– Johann Dvorak, CO

The science ensign nodded before they moved over to one of the consoles and tried to key things in to no effect.

The turbolift doors that the Captain walked in front of, perhaps unsurprisingly, failed to open. One of the security NEs moved to pop open one of the emergency deck hatches to allow access to the jeffries tubes. “Would you like me to go on point Captain?” He asked.
