ENG NPC Lt. Mackenzie

Postby Aoibhe Ni » Sun Jul 13, 2014 7:13 pm

"What do you mean 'They don't fit'?" Mac called down the length of the Jeffries tube as she wriggled her way past Ensign Fray, coming instantly face-to-face with Giorgio Falstaf at the entrance to Engineering. She blew a stray section of her dark fringe out of her eyes as she climbed into ME proper, and straightened with a sigh. Her brow was shining with perspiration and her freckled cheek sported a fetching dark smear she had collected in the bowels of the Bremen sometime earlier. It felt like she hadn't stood upright all day, but she knew it couldn't have been more than a few hours.

Falstaf gave her a second to right herself, and then handed over the isolinear chips, held in a neat little box. "They don't fit, sir. I don't know how else to say it."
Mac took the box, wiped her hand clean on her overalls and picked out a chip, holding it up to the blue light of the warp core. "It seems fine to me. No warping, no irregularities..."
Falstaf, reluctant to repeat himself a third time simply turned and beckoned her to follow him past the core, past the pool table - such as it was right now, half demolished to find the cause of a glitch - and walked over to the isolinear main board. He waved his hands at it and looked at Mac. "Try one..."
Mac sighed, and obliged. The chip was a micrometer too large for the hole. She pursed her lips and looked at Falstaf with a resigned shrug.
"Adalberto will want this operational, you know."
"I gathered..."
"We do not want him to do that face he does..."
Falstaf looked confused. "Which one?"
Mac, furrowed her brows a little and pushed out her bottom lip in a facsimile of Tony's more serious face.
Falstaf's mouth curved into an Oh. "What do you recommend, sir?" he asked.
"Make the holes bigger..." Mac handed him back the full box of chips. "The laser grinder is on the bottom shelf...". She patted him on the back and smiled. "Travel through space, they said! Meet exciting aliens, they said! Spend the day shaving half a micrometer off each side of every gap in an isolinear bank? That they left out of the brochure... Have fun!"
Falstaf grimaced and got to work as Mac turned and headed back to Main Engineering. Chuckling to herself, she picked up a PADD and began to record the fault with the large list of others. Her head bent down as she read, she stepped into Engineering and a second later was thrown backwards as the ship whined and bucked beneath her.

All was black. How long she was out, she didn't know. But she came to to the sound of klaxons, and harsh voices. Her vision blurred and her mouth dry, she lifted a bloody hand to her comm badge and activated it. "Main Engineering to Securit-" Then a crackling disruptor blast hit her. The last thing she remembered was the sight of a leathern boot, and a green-tinged hand picking up her comm badge.
