Max then responded to the Captain =/\=That is a good idea. I was thinking about doing some simulations to see if we could get more information based on the data we have on the nebula. Captain, we will be down here keeping the ship in tip top shape and making sure nothing happens, if possible, with the nebula. Max out.=/\=
Captain Glen responded =/\= Very Good. See if it helps if we can make the Rodium Shields work in conjunction with the Warp field integrity. =/\=
OOC: So just a small note, the rodium is armor plating not shields, you COULD if you wanted go retro and polarize the hull which while not as protective as shields nor as effective as even old enterprise era hull polarization would i rule be a little extra protective then nothing.
Max then went over to the simulation station in order to start running the data. He wanted to see what the computer would come up with. He waited for the computer to provide a number of possibilities in order to know what to prepare for, especially with leaving the shields up. He knew the ship was better equipped for this but one never knew what might happen with the nebula.
During his bedtime reading, Glen had recently read in the Starfleet Journal of Shield Engineers about the use of nanocochrane stabilizers in stabilizing shield frequencies, and so allowing their synchronization into a more dynamic configuration, with the generation of overlapping subspace fields, also known as metaphasic shielding. Unfortunately, neither the original specifications of the Merrimack, or it’s futuristic upgrades had allowed for such a thing, and Max would need to reply on old fashioned methods of synchronizing the shield frequency to the Warp field itself.
Glen then instructed NE Coals, “Before we enter can we send a Com forward using the USS Trudograd’s earlier dropped buoys and is there some way of telling how far it gets before it is cut or blocked? That would give us an indication of where the problem is, if not what it is.”
”..We can, they dont got much in the way of sensors so we cant use them to scan for anything really though..” NE Coal said.
“Samson,” Glen asked Helm, “plot a course into the nebula, but let’s try to use the Coms first, so await my order before going in.”
Glen asked his new CSO, “Xavier, are you happy with the composition and distribution of gases? is this as you expected? Can you do anything to improve the sensors?”
“Verity,” Glen asked his XO, “Your thoughts might be useful too?”
“If the nebula gas composition results in the loss of sensors and shields, do you think we could reroute emergency power through the Rodium deflector shell? That should compensate for any static discharge from the subspace field distortion amplifier, that we might see between the amplifier and the eight shield generators within the space frame.”
“And It will be interesting to see how Lt. Mullins simulations work out, don’t you think?” Glen asked Verity.
