"Sir, shields failing, we won't be able to..." and then the console exploded, killing the ensign that had taken over tactical only half an hour ago. The bridge was in disarray, wires and interior plating hanging from the ceiling.

"Status of the Borg ship?" asked Callahan, in the center seat

"The outer hull has sustained heavy damage, sir, but it doesn't seem to be doing anything." reported Ops

"Is there anyway to get on board?" Callahan asked.

"I'm afraid not, sir, if we lowered our shields...." and then the ship rocked from another blast "well, let's just say it won't be good for Exeter."

"Then prepare to hit them with everything we got. I don't want a single torpedo in that bay, understood?"

"Yes, sir, weapons at the ready." Replied the tactical officer. Dirk waited for a moment, looking around for a moment.

"Fire everything we have! Don't let them break through our defenses." Dirk ordered.

The doors then opened, and Lorraine walked in.

"Computer freeze program." Lorraine said. "Why don't you come back to bed?"

"Can't sleep, need the heat of battle." Dirk told her.

"That's your father talking, and you two never got along If I remember right."

"Alright, I'll come to bed, Computer, end program. You know, you never got along with your parents either."

"But it's not me who's up at 4 in the morning battling the Borg." she said "That, and we have duty shift in two hours."

"Whatever you say, sweetheart." he said as they went back to their quarters.
