Mission: S1E2: The Surprise Attack
Location: Deck 16, Main Engineering
Timeline: October 6, 2388; 0700h - MD2

After his conversation with the Colonel, David decided to push everything else aside and get the weapons arrays that were offline fixed. After sending teams to attend to the two phaser arrays that were broken, he himself decided to tackle the Torpedo launcher. After walking, crawling through some Jeffies tubes, and walking some more, he arrived at the the Torpedo Bay doors. Keying his access codes, the doors parted and he walked inside, unsure of what he was going to find.

Pulling his tricorder from his belt, he quickly ran a scan of the whole launcher, top to bottom. Discovering what was most likely the problem he flipped it closed, grabbed his toolkit, and climbed underneath it. Again while underneath, he mad anther quick scan, while at the same time flipping his toolkit open. Laying the tricorder down still open, he said allowed, "Computer, deactivate all power to this launcher authorization 2betaalpha1". A few seconds later the computer confirmed the power was off, and he got to work.

First, he switched out over a dozed isolenear chips that had gotten burned out, tossing the old ones to one side. Looking from side to side, jiggling wires as he went, he discovered that not only was a Bio-Nueral Gelpack was burnt out, but so were wiring going to and from it. Replacing the Gel Pack first, now came the real headache. Over a period of 2 hours, he replaced every single bit of wiring in launcher, just to make sure he had not missed anything. Pulling himself out and to his feet, he grabbed his Tri-Corder and ran several scans, which all came back at 100 percent.

Now came the moment of truth. He said aloud, Computer, re-power this launcher, authorization Mattis2betaalpha1". With a slight hum, it powered back up, and after a few more scans there showed no problems. Mattis tapped his combadge and said, "Mattis to the Colonel, the Torpedo launcher is back online ma'am"

"Very good, now is their anything else that is broken?" She asked him as she needed to get some morning work done.

Checking his PADD, Mattis replied, "The two Phaser arrays that were offline will be repaired in half an hour Ma'am"

"Very well," Leah said as she waited for any other word.

"Thats all, Mattis out", he said as he closed the channel.

She sighed and shook her head and went back to work getting the reports over with.
