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.
(http://i950.photobucket.com/albums/ad349/Mikey010178/waterbar-baylights-1-retouched.0.0_zps82dyqed9.jpg)
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.

>>Transmission from Sickbay>>

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 =^=

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.

Post by: KnodwI Shepard on August 03, 2017, 10:26:20 PM
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? =^=
Title: Re: New Horizon's - Engineering.
Post by: KnodwI Shepard on August 06, 2017, 12:34:15 AM
(from Engineering)

=^= Engineering to the Captain,  We have found something odd with the engines..  It looks like someone has tampered with the harmonics.  Computer can not tell me who was the last one at the secondary engine room console.   Do Not go to Warp power until further notice.......     This could be a ticking time bomb waiting to happen... =^=

anything could be farther than the truth..  Someone has tampered with the propulsion of this vessel, now to find the one responsible.
Title: Re: New Horizon's - Engineering.
Post by: KnodwI Shepard on August 08, 2017, 10:15:41 AM
KnodwI was busy trying to get his engines back in order.   Who ever made the changes, really did a number on them.   If they had went to warp speed with such an imbalance in the harmonics, it could have been catastrophic.

He was going to be awhile working on the engines.  He would have to make sure all three cores were clear before he would let them go back to warp power.
Title: Re: New Horizon's - Engineering.
Post by: KnodwI Shepard on August 13, 2017, 11:05:38 AM
After what seemed like hours working on the engines.   KnodwI found a subroutine was added to the engine harmonic systems...  Once he decoded the subroutine, it was there a small code to destroy the main engines...

Now it would be a simple fix if it was on a standard starship, but with a class like the Prometheus there are three cores that have to be purged.

=^=Engineering to Captain, we have a problem.  Come to Engineering at your convenience.=^=

John entered Engineering his face not showing the events that happened earlier in his Quarters he walked towards the Warp Core feeling the glow from it.

The Chief Engineer looked up to the Captain, then he pointed at the screen showing the harmonic sub-routine that has the engines all down.

I will give you my thoughts on this Captain, but who ever did this coding really could have really screwed us badly.  This has effected all three engine cores.  We are looking at four days without warp power.  On a good note, this did not effect the weapon systems for some reason.

He pulled up the sensor jammer specs up as well then handed him the padd.

This project has some potential.  I have gotten the jamming radius out to ten kilometers.  I might now be able to make it work shipwide, but it may cost another four days for that to be worked into the progress.

Now he waits for the Captain's go ahead on the projects.  He still had no clue on who did the damage to the engine cores.

John looked at the Warp Core and he looked at the Chief Engineer for a moment then he took a deep breath before speaking.

"Commander you have 36 Hours tops before we could get visitors, I need Partial Warp before then even if it's Warp 3 to take us to a hide away to complete repairs use as many as needed to get this done" Finished John then looking at him for a moment "I do realize this is asking alot of your Staff but this can't be help good work on the Sensor Jammer I have been thinking is there a way we can send a Data Packet causing all Federation Ships to not get proper readings of us.....John trailed off "Also Commander I would need a Shielding Program that could help us last within an Corona of a Sun for long periods if needed" Brown finished

KnodwI looked at the Captain with a puzzled look.   The time frame to complete a rework of the warp cores was going to take longer than he wanted.

Captain, I can get you partial warp power in 48 hours, there is no negotiations on this.  These engines are still green.  So the specs are tight, till we work out all of the bugs.   The shields, it is called metaphasic shielding, it has been used before on the Enterprise.  It is in the computer, we should be able to use that without a problem.   If you can use the command codes of the other Federation ships, you can make us look like a Romulan scout ship. 

Then the comm to the Captain come through.

By your leave sir.

Then KnodwI went back out to the engine room and got with the others of his staff to get the work started on the engine repairs.

KnodwI got busy.  When the Red Alert sounded off.   This is something he did not want to have come up.  He had the new routine to be put in the core system, but it would take time.  So he added the routine to the main core.

=^= Engineering to bridge, you have low warp power.  Do not exceed warp 4.  =^=
Title: Re: New Horizon's - Engineering.
Post by: KnodwI Shepard on September 02, 2017, 09:50:09 PM
KnodwI worked quickly to get the new routines into the warp core systems.   He had ran from one engine room to the next.   Finally, he was at the engine room off of the saucer section.  He put in the codes and ran a quick diagnostic.   

The ship was ready once again, but he knew if it came down to a major battle.  The system could fail again.  So he placed his top engineers at the terminals at each core. 

=^= Engineering to Captain,  We are at full power once again.  Watch for any major battles, if we have to go into multi vector assault mode, I can not guarantee the engines....  I am certain that if it comes to that, we should still be at 95%...   =^=

KnodwI continued to work on his engines, then it was complete...   The engines were back to normal, but the little bug in the subroutines were removed and new ones replaced it.   Now for the testing of all testing.

KnodwI just returned from the mess hall.   He was in a pretty good humor.  Done some good weapon training with the doctor.  He had to make a few weapons for the doctor.  So he went to his forge he had p!aced in an empty area of engineering.

He grabbed some metal, then started to heat the metal.  Once the metal was hot enough, he began to fold and form the metal the way he wanted.

As time went on he had forged out two weapons.  A lighter weight bat'leth and a meq'leth was made with some design work that has a Klingon soul made into it.

He took the blades back to his office and took some there.  He knew that something could happen at anytime.

With a few minutes to spare before the CMO had to get ready for her duty watch,  she detoured to Engineering instead of going to her quarters.

Upon entering, blue orbs spotted the Klingon at one of the consoles working. The petite blonde walked over to the chief engineer and flashed him a small smile.

"Commander... You wanted to see me?"
