Chief Engineer’s Log

Well, we had some unusual happenings between Engineering and the Medical Office.  My crewman, Redmond Shert, reported to me that he was feeling quite unwell.  I took one look at him and I personally escorted him to Sickbay, and informed Dr. Taylor about his sickness.

I then left to go and check on my other crewmen, who were working, once again, on the environmental controls.  Everything was going to plan there, when I was recalled to Sickbay.  Apparently, their bio bed was malfunctioning.  When I got there and checked out the bio bed, it was quite confusing.  There didn’t seem to be anything mechanically wrong with the bed!  It was then that Dr. Taylor insisted that Nurse Tribble take some samples of my blood, as well as the rest of those in Sickbay.  Turns out, we were all infected with this same virus that had taken hold of Crewman Shert.  I wasn’t feeling sick, but I could tell something was a bit off. 

Dr. Taylor quarantined the entire Sickbay at this time and requested blood samples from around the ship.  We soon found out that every person on the ship was infected!  Dr. Taylor immediately ordered Nurse Tribble to do some medical tests on Crewman Shert and proceeded to attach herself to her computer, trying to figure out what this virus was, and how to counteract it.

To my surprise, she found out that this virus could not only affect humans, but could also be transferred to machines!  This was all I needed to try and attempt to fix the bio bed, and I got right on it.   I could hear Nurse Tribble saying something about engineering, but I was head first in a bio bed and not coming up for air until I figured out the issue, I was so close!  Before long, I started feeling the effects of the virus. But I hadn’t the time to be sick as this virus had started traveling via the computer to the rest of the whole ship!

I dug in my heels and went straight to the computer system, trying to purge the virus from it, while dripping with sweat and losing control over myself.   I saw Nurse Tribble bringing out some very old medical equipment (I must remember to go and check that stuff out, it’s fascinating!) and shortly thereafter, declare that she had a fix for the virus, and it was none too soon, I could hardly move anymore.

Nurse Tribble injected Crewman Shert and there was a reaction.  An odd vapor seemed to fill the room, as though you poured water on a shuttlecraft’s engine, while it was still hot.  It was then that I lost consciousness. 

When I, and apparently the rest of those in Sickbay, came too, Crewman Shert was missing.  I went to the computer to locate him and the only response the computer gave was that he was reassigned.  Reassigned?  In the middle of all of this? 

The good news was that the whole ship was cured, but there is still this curiosity of my missing Crewman.  Red Shert, where ever you are, I hope you’re doing well.

Engineering Officer’s Log

This month I am having most of my teams concentrating on repairing the damage done to Star-base 313, as well as investigating more into the actual cause of the damage.
Some of my crew are busy with some minor repairs to the Narragansett, a couple of glitchy replicators and some crew doors that are acting up.
I’m getting a bit worried about the environmental controls again, it’s been running a bit hot, so I have a few crewmen checking on that.
I have been fairly busy with my new job at Sol Sector, but my crews have been reporting to me hourly on their progress. I hope to have answers to several of these issues fairly soon.

Engineering Status Report

  • Alpha/Beta Teams A and B have been continually working on the warp core and enhancing its functionality. Happy to report that all is going well and we are functioning at near 100%
  • A/B/G Primary has been working on a new way for our replicators to work more efficiently. I should have a more detailed report for you for next month.
  • Gamma Teams A and B had been working on the malfunctioning environmental systems. I am pleased to report they figured out why they were emitting so much heat and have fixed the issues.
  • A/B/G Team C has been diligently keeping track of weapons systems, as well as the displays to keep them in tip top shape.

Engineering Status Report

  • Alpha/Beta/Gamma Team A has finished their work on the warp core. It is now running at an optimal state.
  • A/B/G Team B has been diligently working within Main Engineering and our output continues to thrive at 98%.
  • Gamma Team C has finished the upgrades to the crew quarters. The results have been extremely well received.
  • Beta Team C has finished the upgrades to the holodecks. The results are more than was expected. They did a fine job.
  • A/B/G Team A finished their work on the damaged nacelle, it’s in working order now.
  • Alpha Team C has finished their work on the deuterium injectors.

Coming up next and continuing work:

  • A/B/G Primary has been working on the environmental controls. We don’t know why they are malfunctioning so badly. Every time we believe we have solved it, another issue comes up. Rest assured, they are working round the clock to fix it.
  • A/B Teams A and C will be doing more upgrades to the replicators. Several requests have been made for a “relaxing bouquet” among other things.
  • A/B/G Team B will be continuing their work with Main Engineering to make sure our engines keep their output at high levels.
  • Gamma Team C will be doing repairs on our transporters. We will try to keep a schedule of repair when they are not being used as much, the schedule will be posted for all crew to see and adapt their transporting needs accordingly.
  • Gamma Team A will be doing some major upgrades to Fleet Captain Knotts’ quarters to make it easier and more accessible for him to work with our fleets.

Engineering Status Report

Commander Taylor has brought me up to speed on the current goings on in Engineering.

  • Alpha/Beta/Gamma Primary has been working non-stop to repair the damage that we sustained during the last mission. I am very proud to say they performed admirably, and the repairs are finished.
  • Alpha/Beta/Gamma team A has been working on the warp core itself, re-tuning it and making sure it’s in an optimal state.
  • Alpha/Beta/Gamma team B has been continuing their work on Main Engineering, engine efficiency is at 98%.
  • There was a slight delay in finishing up the upgrades to the crew quarters, Gamma Team C is finishing up on those. They should be done by the end of the week.
  • Because of the delay, the upgrades to the holodecks were also pushed back. Beta Team C will be finishing those up. They should also be done by the end of the week.
  • During the last mission, one of our warp nacelles was also damaged, while Alpha/Beta/Gamma Primary worked on repairs for the rest of the ship, Alpha/Beta/Gamma Team A did repairs on it. Also completed successfully.
  • Alpha Team C are doing some minor repairs to the deuterium injectors, which should be finished this week.
