Draxx was in one of the ops labs when the red alert klaxons started. He was thrown around like a rag doll for a few minutes which resulted in him no longer being in the lab. When he came round in the corridor outside the red lights were still on and he see several small plasma fires down the corridor. Things were fuzzy but he could see one person putting out the plasma.

A groan sounded from the floor as Ensign Ricky as he came round. "Awww... my spleen. Wha the hell happened?" He moaned as he picked himself up off the floor.

Madeline looked back from what she was doing to see two individuals coming around, she sprayed another round of fire retardant on the next flame watching it go out. Her face was smeared with black soot, her blonde hair a bit awry, and seemed to be somewhat singed. "Oh good you've come around!" she said her lip slightly swollen. "I was really worried sirs."

"Any idea on what happened?" Draxx repeated the ensigns' question. "And how long were we out?"

"You were out for an hour or maybe more. I only woke up an hour ago. I am not certain. I found you though sir. I have been checking for people who have needed help." she paused and took a breath then stated. "It was as if we hit something or something hit us and people have been telling me that they got tossed around severely."

"I need to get to the captain .. I mean my wife. She's due to give birth soon," Draxx stated. "Anytime. I mean this probably put her in to early labour."

A concerned expression crossed Madeline's face, "Aye I can do that, sir." She looked at Ensign Ricky, "The way is clear to get to sickbay, do you think you can make it there on your own? The turbolifts aren't operational."

She is interrupted by a shout and someone came around the corner, it was a relieved corpsman, "Oh good more survivors. We've got a trauma area set up to take care of the injured on this deck. I can take him, and what about you Sir." looking at Draxx, then he looked at Madeline. "How about you?"

Madeline shook her head. "I'm okay, I just need to take Lieutenant Draxx to get to his wife. You take care of Ensign Ricky please." giving a friendly smile. the corpsman nodded and offered help for Ensign Ricky. "Lets get you taken care of."

Madeline then looked towards Draxx, "So sir, shall we get you to your wife?" a bright smile directed to him.

"Yes definitely. The last I remember of what she said of her schedule, was she had a meeting in Engineering."

"Then that is where we will go, sir." She waved towards Ensign Ricky then opened up a nearby jefferies tube access point. "Shall we?" Even though she had a bit of worry about where they would be going but, he needed to get to his wife, Captain Melody Jones.

Ensign Ricky wasn't exactly looking forward to crawling through the bowels of the ship to get to main engineering, but then he wasn't going to question a senior officer either. He let out a sigh as he walked over to them "You know, I'm sure I've heard in these situations it's the no-name ensign who gets killed off first."

Madeline put up a hand in a gesture for Ricky to stop. "Ricky, I'll get Lieutenant Draxx to his lady. You do not have to go. I was expecting you to go get taken care of by the corpsmen. Plus you will be needing to your injuries seen to. " the woman said, giving a bit of a smile. "Its okay, it will be okay."

Ricky scoffed at this. "What? And leave me here on my own? No thank you. Might as well get to Engineering."

"Suit yourself then, Ricky." Madeline giving him a flash of a smile. "You have always been stubborn but a good crew member. Which is why I like you."
