[previous "Something Strange"]


Setting: USS ANUBIS, Bridge
Stardate: 31199.2035

"What do you mean the conduit has not been repaired?!? It's been over two hours!" Jayson's patience had long left the ship, and pretty much everyone knew it.

=/\= Sorry Sir, but that coolant leak on deck 6 was just the tip of the iceberg.  You can check with Lt. Paquette... =/\=

The OPS Officer just closed the comm channel not at all interested in hearing about the CEO and how she had apparently managed to be everyone on the ship all at the same time.

"Everyone is doing their best," the ExO said as she came to stand next to the twitching OPS Officer.

"I know," Stark snapped as he turned to look to face the Commander. Whatever rage had been ready to come out was quickly pushed away. Getting courtmartialed for insubordination had not been something that Jayson or the ANUBIS needed at this time.

"Take a deep breath," Shar'El said, the faint smile she added made him understand that no harm had been done.  After what had happened everyone had been on edge, and the ExO clearly knew this.

"Maybe I should go down to deck 6 and see what is holding up the repairs. At the very least it will give me a chance to walk off some of my frustrations."


Setting: USS ANUBIS, Deck 6, Corridor
Stardate: 31199.2040

Going for a walk might not have been the brightest idea the OPS Officer had ever gotten. The ship looked like hell with panels scattered everywhere, cables hanging from the ceiling and the floor covered in debris.

Hours, even days would never be enough to get the ship back in the condition that it needed to be. Not while stuck on the edge of a star cluster that seemed bent on destroying anything that came too close. The ANUBIS would need weeks back in drydock to make sure that every system was brought back to their expected working condition.

Jayson saw something vanish down one of the side corridors. The shadow had moved too fast to be a member of the crew so curious to discover what he had seen the OPS Officer sped up his walk to the junction. There he looked down the corridor and only saw another debrid filled floor with wires hanging from the ceiling.

"Great, Doctor Doyanne is going to declare me unfit for duty. I must truly be stressing out of my mind if I am imagining shadows moving about the ship."
