[Bridge]

Spielenberg? "Merde." Alex swore quietly, turning quickly back to the viewscreen to hide the shocked expression on his face from the rest of the bridge crew. What the hell was he thinking? Tabernac, that idiot! =/\="Early report said it was Lieutenant Inzjana."=/\= He replied to Tekin's question belatedly as he heard the bridge door slide open behind him.

"Kimball's running a ship's diagnostic now, Captain." Alex regained his composure, turning back around to face T'ra. "We had a report a few minutes ago that the lounge replicators were malfunctioning as well, Engineering sent a team to repair it, but with what just happened in there, I don't know how much progress they've made." He peered around the skipper to the turbolift behind her, frowning at the stuck doors. "Though I think the lifts are a slightly higher priority than the replicators."

=/\="Acknowledged."=/\= Alex frowned. "I guess we're taking the Jeffries tubes?"


[Bridge]



EQ had no sooner logged into the station when things started to go south.  One red blinking light turned into 3, 3 into 9.  And so it went.

He overheard Wu and Jones.  They seemed to already be aware of what was going on.  That made his job a bit easier.

"More systems issues coming in a we speak, Sir.  I'll prioritize as best I can.  But this might take awhile" he reported.  And that is exactly what he did.

"Mr. Addams, perhaps it would be best to return to your quarters.  We can handle this.  I'll... probably call for you later." he said, turning and starting to leave.  Lt. Gustov was right there, holding the weapon used and showing the Commander.  Nevir's eyes went wide as he took the phaser in his hand.

=/\= Addams to Commander Tekin...Addams here...The turbolifts are not complying my wishes to go to the proper floor. It seem to off to a holiday  =/\= 

[Conference Room]

The Bajoran sighed... not out of annoyance, but by the fact that the civilian's comm was accentuated with the lights flickering in the room he was in.

"We're working on it, Mr. Addams... stand by." he said, taking the time while he waited for the other two to step out onto the Bridge.

"Mr Kimball, is there an up..." he said, trailing off as the teltale sounds of losing power mixed with the computer panels flickering with the lights.  For a brief moment, the bridge went dark, but then just as suddenly, everything came back on with no signs of power fluctuations at all.  Just as suddenly as it started, the power issues vanished.

"Well... that's better... helm, resume course at full impulse.  Ops, work with Engineering to see if you can isolate the cause.  This is supposed to be a state of the art vessel." he said, turning just to see Alex and the Captain entering the bridge... but not from the turbolift.  Looks like they didn't want to risk it.  Giving a nod to the others, he returned to the conference room to wait for them.

After they entered, and the door closed, he started.

"It was our Chief Science Officer, Johan Spielenburg.  He attacked Lieutenant Inzjana in the aft Lounge with a phaser before running and being apprehended.  This phaser." he said, gesturing to the table.  "Upon investigation, however, there was something unusual.  The phaser was locked into it's setting.  That setting hasn't been changed since we grabbed it, or since he fired it." he said, encouraging them to take a look at the readout on the small sidearm.

"Johan has it set to maximum."

"Inzjana was not meant to survive her attack.  It was set to maximum kill, enough to vaporize her.  But it didn't... by the grace of the Prophets, she's being cared for by Medical." he said, walking over to the replicator in the conference room and creating a bio-matter substitute.  He put it on the table, and then picked up the phaser, pulling the trigger.  The beam shot out as an intense beam, and the testing container faded with a flash of light.

"I don't know what is more disturbing... that our CSO tried to murder a subordinate... or that the beam suddenly lost intensity when it was fired."

"I don't know what is more disturbing... that our CSO tried to murder a subordinate... or that the beam suddenly lost intensity when it was fired."


(Briefly introducing a lovely NPC for this time of need!)

 =/\= Doctor May to Officer Phoz.  Has our patient been located and secured?

 =/\= Yes, Doctor.  We are ready for transport.

Officer Irven Phoz was a Medical Officer of the Trill race. 

T'Lulu stood at a console in Inzjana's operating room.  "Energize," she said to herself. 

T'Lulu's emotionless gaze looked back at her through the glass reflection as she stared at the console for a minute.  The group she had locked on to had not beamed in yet.

 =/\= Phoz... it seems the transport was not successful. Shall I try again?

Her commbadge buzzed and sputtered, but projected no intelligible information.  She tapped her fingers along the console to find that she had... lost the group.  ...Where did they go?

 =/\= Phoz? Report immediately...

~ MEANWHILE ~

 =/\= Okay Doctor, we're ready for transport.  Five to beam up.

The molecules of Phoz, his medical team, and their unconscious patient scattered as the beams carried them off to their new location.

Medical officer Phoz expected that he and his team should arrive in front of a pristinely prepared operating room with surgeons scrubbing in, ready to examine their patient with sterilized equipment that glistens under the fluorescent lights ---

Instead, officer Phoz found himself, his team, and his patient with an open wound, in a dark, damp, hot, steamy, grimy dungeon.

 =/\= Uh......... doctor May?  Hello...?

He and the other personnel looked around uncomfortably.  Officer Phoz began to visibly panic.  His voice quivered as he tried to make contact with doctor May, or anyone.

 =/\= Doctor May.... anybody.... please respond!  I have a wounded, unconscious patient in the wORST ENVIRONMENT SHE COULD POSSIBLY BE IN, PLEASE SEND HELP

The other three medical personnel scurried through their medical supplies in order to protect Inzjana and her injury from this harsh environment.

Officer Phoz began to hyperventilate.

The Bajoran sighed... not out of annoyance, but by the fact that the civilian's comm was accentuated with the lights flickering in the room he was in.

"We're working on it, Mr. Addams... stand by." he said, taking the time while he waited for the other two to step out onto the Bridge.

"Mr Kimball, is there an up..." he said, trailing off as the teltale sounds of losing power mixed with the computer panels flickering with the lights.  For a brief moment, the bridge went dark, but then just as suddenly, everything came back on with no signs of power fluctuations at all.  Just as suddenly as it started, the power issues vanished.

"Well... that's better... helm, resume course at full impulse.  Ops, work with Engineering to see if you can isolate the cause.  This is supposed to be a state of the art vessel." he said, turning just to see Alex and the Captain entering the bridge... but not from the turbolift.  Looks like they didn't want to risk it.  Giving a nod to the others, he returned to the conference room to wait for them.

After they entered, and the door closed, he started.

"It was our Chief Science Officer, Johan Spielenburg.  He attacked Lieutenant Inzjana in the aft Lounge with a phaser before running and being apprehended.  This phaser." he said, gesturing to the table.  "Upon investigation, however, there was something unusual.  The phaser was locked into it's setting.  That setting hasn't been changed since we grabbed it, or since he fired it." he said, encouraging them to take a look at the readout on the small sidearm.

EQ raised his head when his name was called.  Then dropped it again when the lights went out.  'Great' he thought.  This was his first day back on a Bridge and everything was turning to crap.

"Aye, Sir" EQ replied when Tekin issued the command for Ops.  He had seen one issue similar to this on the Shran awhile back.  That had not ended well.  But it gave the liberated Borg an idea. 

"Sir, we might want to consider doing a hard reboot of the system.  It would leave us in a lurch for a short time.  But it might fix our problem" he suggested.

Lieutenant Evan Buehler made his way over to check on the OR that T'Lulu had been preparing.  Upon arrival, he was pleased with the attention to detail that the Ensign managed to execute on such a short notice.

"Ensign May, I'm surprised our emergency unit hadn't arrived yet. How were they getting here?"

Without a twitch, T'Lulu kept her gaze on the console, tapping away as she responded,

"I have been made aware that the turbolifts had been malfunctioning, so I attempted to beam them up here via transporter."  She hastily tried to figure out how to lock on to the group's location, but the computer was simply not cooperating.

"Er... attempted?"  An eyebrow raised.

"Indeed. It seems the group had been lost during the trip.  I am currently trying to determine their location."

"What's wrong with the console?"  Buehler asked.

"Every time I try to locate their ID codes, the location keeps changing.  It is hard to tell if they are actually traveling this way, or if the particle lock is simply malfunctioning."  T'Lulu's brow furrowed as she squinted at the screen.

Buehler tapped his commbadge. 

 =/\= Computer, location of Lieutenant Injzana.

BEEDEEP BOOP --

It is the wounded you seek
It is plain for me to tell
That your trusty crew
Is trapped down a well
This well has its perks
Though deep and dark and damp
This turbine of mass exersion
May help them set up camp


BOOP BEEDEEP

"What in the...." T'Lulu and Evan exchanged puzzled glances. The android looked back at her console and briefly analyzed its outputs from a different perspective.

"This is... a riddle." She exclaimed.

"Oh, for the love of God."  T'Lulu's superior pinched the bridge of his nose.

Meanwhile...

By now, Officer Phoz had regained his composure enough to inspect his surroundings.  It was a very flat metallic area that reflected occasional bursts of light on all surfaces.  The ceiling hung very low, as Phoz's head almost reached the top.  He took note of any possible escape routes such as air vents.  Phoz and the crew began to sweat from the heat. 

He looked back at his team to appreciate the care that they had taken for their patient.  She wasn't awake yet, and perhaps that was for the best for now.

[Conference Room]

Nevir was frowning, but went to the replicator to get another couple of bio-tubes.  He placed them both on the table as she had the computer run a diagnostic, showing green across the board.

Nevir aimed at one of the two containers and fired again, watching the container vaporize like the first.  Two tests, and two times the phaser vaporized its target... yet it didn't when Injzana was targeted.

"I'm starting to think the Prophets are looking out for her..." he said, shaking his head.  Alex was silent... perhaps stunned.


With the call from the helm, the three nodded, leaving the room, and the phaser lying on the table.  Within seconds Nevir arrived on the bridge, while the captain made a beeline for her ready room.  He honestly couldn't blame her.

The Bajoran took his seat in the center chair, mulling over what Kimball had said earlier before he entered the room.  With no current science officer on the bridge, Nevir brought up the sensors on his own.

"There's a gravimetric wake pulling us towards a nebula... the Sandtrap?  Interesting." They were still heading backwards, almost pulled by the gravity intercept. 

"Mr. Kimball, I think we're going to go with your plan.  Prepare for a system-wide reset, and make sure life-support is isolated... I don't want to suffocate waiting for the power to come back."

He then turned to the helm.  "Bring us about and face us in our direction.  Shut down all propulsion."

"Everything is registering as normal... this would be the best time to do it." he said, checking all systems.

 =/\= "All hands, this is the XO.  We are going for a hard reset of the main computer.  Prepare for system shutdown. Engineering teams, I want a full restart on the warp cores.  Make it so."  =/\=

As he watched the bridge move into action, his thoughts were to sickbay. Hopefully this wouldn't take too long.  And it would be the first time they had the entire ship shut down for any period of time.

"Hopefully this works..." he said, staring ahead.

EQ had been busy with his board.  Putting out the 'fire' of one red blinking light after the next.  But as soon as he put one light out two more would start blinking.  "Negative.  Aw wait.  It just went out" he replied.

The liberated borg was starting to feel just a bit overwhelmed.  There were just way too many blinking lights.   It was almost too much. 

But he took a breath.  Just to calm himself a bit.  "Aye, Sir.  Thank you.  I will start the process here in a second" EQ replied.
