Mission: Scylla and Charybdis
Location: Main Engineering
Timeline: Mission Day 2 at 0610

With hair still a bit damp, Fin walked into the main engineering. She felt good, and her face radiated that cheeriness. She was glad to be out in the open like this again. She nodded to some of the engineers before spotting the black hair of Ceciri. She walked up and smiled, "Morning chief."

"Morning" Ceciri greeted She had gotten out of sickbay only ten minutes ago, and was still a bit tired. "I apologize for the double shifts. We're still racing the clock.. hopefully today we can get a bit of relief on that."

"It's okay, work needs to get done." Fin said with a little shrug. "Want me to help the EPS conduit teams?"

"I'd appreciate it. I'm going to see if I can't get us some breathing room today." Ceciri sighs. "You should know we've traced down the secondary cause of the shield system malfunctions. It was an interaction between the cyclic temporary shields that overlay the main shields to provide resilience - the installed equipment had some custom configurations that weren't in the documentation. We've managed to figure it out." Ceciri gives a wry shrug.

"Probably some last minute change they didn't have time to update. Teething troubles." Ceciri, like a lot of engineers, saw the ship as her child to nurse, and considering this was the first mission, she had expected something to go wrong, just not quite this bad.

Fin considered the flaw for a moment, "You did have them write the documentation this time, right?"

Ceciri nods. "Yes. And then I double checked it. "

"Then I'll go do the rounds and check in with the crews we have out. Then I'll help the EPS teams. Agreed?" Fin suggested.

"That sounds good. I'll be making sure the new teams are up to date, and then I'll be overseeing some of the new shield emitters after the meetings." Ceciri nodded. "Thank you, Chu." Ceciri rubs her eyes. "And on a side note: when the CMO says 'asleep for 12 hours', she means 'in a coma for 12 hours.'."
