Taken Out of the Game

Mission: Searching for the Lost
Location: USS Tonawanda
Timeline: Mission Day 1 at 0815

“What the hell is going on?” Latanun called out as he pulled himself back to his feet.

The Tonawanda had just violently jerked hard to port, tossing everyone on the Bridge to the deck. The lights had gone out; the command center now glowed from the dim emergency lighting.

“Not sure, Captain,” the Ops Lieutenant answered, as she slid back into her chair. “Primary power systems are offline. Multiple system failures shipwide.”

The Rigellian Captain shook his head. “Casualties?”

“No reports in yet.”

“Latanun to Engineering. Are we going to be able to continue our mission?”

“‘Fraid not, Captain,” came the reply over the comm system. “One of the nacelles is severely damaged. Don’t think we’ll be able to fix it out here. Gonna need some time in a shipyard. And that’s assuming we could generate enough power. Without the fusion reactors, impulse isn’t gonna happen either.”

“Damn!” Latanun hated the idea of abandoning the Tonawanda’s mission. “Send a message to Gamma Command. Tell them we need a tow. And that they’ll need to get someone else to try to find that survey team.”
