It had been almost 9 hours now since the incident and the state of play on the bridge had not changed much. What had crippled the ship was still unknown. Lieutenant Morgan had managed to cut a hole through one of the bulkheads and had been sent to make a general survey of the ship and come back with medical personnel but the other bulkheads were still impeding access to the bridge. Internal communications and most major systems were still offline.

The Admiral was on his back underneath the engineering station, trying to restore power. The rest of the bridge crew were in similar poses. There was also a team trying to cut through the bulkheads in the turbolift shaft, though they at the moment were also off-line

There was a spark as one of the bridge personnel muffled a quiet curse. He had shocked himself. "Got some of the rewiring done here," he stated. "Some got shorted out when we were hit."

"Good Work...Keep at it." The Admiral called out.

"You know what Anya, I am starting to feel tired now. On the first trip through the Jefferies tube I think I was running more on adrenaline. Now, well pregnancy is very real," Caroline told her friend. "Please tell me we are close."

Kevin overheard Caroline's comment and looked at the junction box marker. " We are currently on deck three, if I'm reading this right about twenty meters to the right and up two more decks and we should be there. Do you need to rest for a few or can you keep going? If you need to rest no one would object, you're the one carrying the precious cargo after all. " He stopped and thought a moment. " That didn't sound weird, did it? " He asked. " Wow! I can do fieldwork or interrogate a prisoner, but I get nervous and overly cautious around a pregnant woman. " He muttered and shook his head.

"Don't stress Kevin. Everyone does. Can we take five? Just let me get my breath back. I feel like we have been crawling in these things for about 2 weeks," Caroline admitted. He was right. It was precious cargo and no way was she having a situation where she pushed herself, walked on the bridge and promptly passed out.

Anya had already started to load a hypospray, a simply glucose and electrolyte cocktail to help keep Caroline on the move without doing any harm to the baby.
"This should help... Do you want some water?"

When Kevin heard the question about the water he started to think out loud. " The replicator system is most likely offline. " He muttered just barely enough to be heard before remembering there were others with him. " Thankfully it is Starfleet protocol to have food and water ration packets stocked on every deck with enough supplies for a month or two for the entire crew, Or at least until we get the power back online throughout the ship. " Whichever comes first. "
