New Horizon's - Engineering.

The USS Horizon is currently in Spacedock and in a low power state.  She is scheduled to launch in 3 days and is currently undergoing the last of her pre-launch checks.

KnodwI entered main Engineering.  He went to his office, to look at the specs for the engine core.   He wanted to make sure the engines would be able to handle the load of crew without having any type of power drops.  Once he was done with that he needed to make sure to report in to the Commanding Officer.

He leaves his office and made sure the Engineer of the watch had his orders.

2 DAYS LATER - THE EVENING BEFORE LAUNCH DAY

Just about the entire crew has arrived for duty, but those who haven't are scheduled to report the following morning.  Captain Hunter has stood the crew down for the evening and ordered Cmdr Shepard to take them to 'The Waterbar' in San Francisco.
This is so the crew can intermingle and get to know one another in a none professional surrounding.  Such opportunities might not be in abundance during their tour of duty.  Hunter has told the crew they are going out on a three year assignment, to explore mainly, but to also try and reconnect with worlds that contact was lost with, during The Dominion War.

Captain Hunter will not be attending the get together, but wishes everybody a good evening.  He reminds you that as always that you represent Starfleet, The Federation and above all The Horizon.  The venue has a restaurant if anyone wants it.
And of course a bar, which no doubt most of you will use.

>>Transmission from Sickbay>>

While waiting to get his physical, he grabbed his duty padd to start working on the startup sequence for the engines.  He was going to make sure that the ship was warp ready before exiting dock.  He had all of the intermix ratios computed and plugged into the padd.   

He tapped his commbadge,

Shepard to Engineering,  Need to have simulation runs of startup sequences on the engines.   Engineer of the watch, need results in one hour.   

Then he sent the intermix setting to engineering.

>> transmission to Engineering>>

The Engineer of the watch received the comm from the Chief Engineer.  He started the process of simulations of the intermix ratios.

The Engineer of the watch received the comm from the Chief Engineer.  He started the process of simulations of the intermix ratios.

Lt. James Maclamore was busy doing the simulations for the intermix ratios that the Chief Engineer had sent down from Medical.   He did the first set of numbers and the engine performance in the simulation was showing a great deal of instability on the core systems.  Then he put in the second set of numbers and the stability was much better but over all output efficiency was slightly above the shakedown cruise reports.   He was starting to get a headache from the the numbers, but never the less he continued on.   The last set of numbers did not look right to him, so he wanted to make sure the calculations were correct.

He took the ratios for the third time and put them into the sim.  The computer ran the sim just like all of the others, but this time the output was even higher than the second run.   As the computer increased the warp speeds the efficiency increased as well.   At the end of the sim, the computer tabulated the overall efficiency at 105%

He made the report to give the Chief Engineer when he arrives from Medical.

KnodwI returned from Medical after his physical was over.   The Engineer of the Watch ran up to him with the report of the intermix ratio sims.   He looked over the report and he smiled.

Great job Lt. Maclamore, I had a feeling that this ship needed a little more in the tank.  This third intermix ratio was the ticket.   Get everything ready for startup.   When the Captain gives the word, I want this to be smooth. 

He gave him a slap on the shoulder.  Then he went over to his office, to look over some of the shakedown reports for the ship.   He remembered that the ship had three engine cores.  So the intermix ratios will have to be input in all three cores systems. 

Now he was just waiting on the word to depart.

THE FOLLOWING MORNING - 7AM - LAUNCH DAY

The only thing everyone needs to be aware of is that the ship is launching at 9AM.  You can be anywhere you want at this point, but should make your way to the ship if you are not onboard already.

John was holding a PADD and was standing in Engineering at an secondary Control Station connected to the Secondary targeting Computer he was confirming the switch over protocols would automatically engage in case of heavy damage he looked up as he heard the communication disengaging the terminal and holding his PADD he headed for the Lift and took it to the Bridge

>>Previously from Conference Room<<

KnodwI walked into Engineering with a purpose.

All right people, let's get this lady purring.   Initiate startup routine Kang 1 Alpha.  Set all dampers to full.  Prepare for departure orders.

The engineering crew started on the startup procedures.   the warp core began to hum the lighting of the core went from a greyish color to a beautiful blue.

Once all of the procedure was completed the engineering crew were smiling at the job that had done. 

=^= Engineering to Bridge, Engines are primed and ready for departure. =^=

SIX MONTHS LATER

Bou'Zan Cluster

William Hunter-Spend the last Six Months leading the Horizon in the Bou'Zan Cluster in the time he commanded the Horizon he was able to stop many small brush fires.But William decided that after speaking to his wife it was now time to leave the Horizon he returned to Earth to take an Instructor role at the Academy.


John Brown- Spend Five Months on the Horizon he was one of the key players on the Ship that helped Hunter resolve the brush fires; John went to Starfleet Medical for a review Doctor Grant was pleased with his progress and gave him the go ahead to take a Command Postion. John applied and was Promoted to Commander and was in the process to take a First Officer position on the U.S.S  Ontario; But with William Hunter telling Starfleet Command that he would take the Post at the Academy Starfleet Command looked at Joshua Shepard they viewed he had promise but not enough experience in Command to be given the Center seat of the Horzion. Starfleet gave it to John Brown with a Promotion to Captian.

KnodwI was working hard to make sure the engine room was in ship shape readiness.   

Look lively there!!!!

He went to work at his controls double checking the intermix ratios, everything was humming for the ready.   Just waiting for the word to get underway.

Josh watched as the captain took his seat. Josh then sat in the chair on the right side of the captain. He activated the ship wide intercom. "Attention all hands prepare for departure. Scheduled time is 30 minutes. Engine room prep the engines we need all systems ready in 20 minutes."

ok Ladies...     Let's get this lady for the ball.

The hum of the engines put a small vibration in the deck plates.   The Horizon's systems came to life. 

=^= Engineering to Bridge, you have full power available =^=

One Week Later
The Horizon is currently in orbit of an unknown planet in the Hurik System, The Captain has ordered Commander Shepard to take an away team down to the surface and investigate.

KnodwI was finally back in Engineering..   He stepped into his office to set the classified material down.  He secured the item, that had a top priority.  He went out to the engine room, and got the passdown information from the EOW (Engineer of the Watch).  He looked at the settings in the warp core, he noticed a slight variance in the harmonics..

Lt. Maclamore, who made adjustments to the warp core?

Maclamore returned a confused look back at the Chief Engineer.

=^= Computer, who was the person responsible for the warp core adjustments? =^=
