{{Salak}}''Note: This is a combination of the sims "The Left Torpedo Launchers connected to the... Replicators?", "The Dangers of a Cup of Tea..." and "A Vulcan Grasp of Humour". These were written by Lt.JG Salak and Lt.Cmdr Kirov as separate sims in Early January 2006.''

Kirov<nowiki>:: Salak! Just </nowiki>As he stepped out of the person I want turbolift, he was a little surprised to seeLt.Cmdr Kirov tinkering with the tactical console, panels off the wall and littering the floor around him, the Jefferies Tube hatch not quite sealed...::
'''[[Kirov, Johnathan Ivanov|Kirov]]''': Salak: ::raising an eyebrow:: Am ! Just the person I indeed..want to see.
Kirov: I'm integrating this control matrix into the ships tactical consolebut I'm hitting a snag and Idon't know what[[Salak]]'''s causing it: ::raising an eyebrow:: Am I indeed...
'''Kirov'''::Salak walks towards I'm integrating this control matrix into the Tactical ships tactical console::but I'm hitting a snag and I don't know what's causing it.
<nowiki>::</nowiki>Salakwalked towards the Tactical console:: I'll have a look...
Kirov'''Salak''': Thank youI'll have a look. Its a 3-dimensional display interface. I think itwill allow for a better understanding of range and co-ordinates forthe tactical user.
Salak'''Kirov''': That makes senseThank you.Its a 3-dimensional display interface.I think it will allow for a better understanding of range and co-ordinates for the tactical user.
Kirov'''Salak''': I know I'm no where in your league but I was wondering if youcould see the problem?That makes sense...
Salak'''Kirov''': Well there seem to be so many circuits cross wired at themoment, many of which are connected to the tactical systems.. I hadcome up here to run a diagnostic and find out just how bad know I'm no where in your league but I was wondering if you could see theproblem is. It's possible the wiring might be causing problems withyour interface...?
Kirov'''Salak''': Give it Well there seem to me straight Docbe so many circuits cross wired at the moment, many of which are connected to the tactical systems.. I had come up here to run a diagnostic and find out just how bad the problem is.It's possible the wiring might be causing problems with your interface...will she live?
Salak'''Kirov''': It's a strange problem... the circuits involved are protectedby forcefields. Only the Tactical staff and the Engineering staff onWallace and officers above Commander rank have the appropriate codesGive it to disable the forcefields and I've not had any engineers working onthe Tactical systemsme straight Doc... we've been too busy working on the SIF...will she live?
Kirov'''Salak''': Well I may only be talking out of my professional interestsbut It's a strange problem... the circuits involved are protected by forcefields. Only the Tactical staff and the Engineering staff on Wallace and officers above Commander rank have the appropriate codes to disable the forcefields and I believe that 've not had any engineers working on the Tactical systems... we need to be able to defend ourselves out here've been too busy working on the SIF...
Salak'''Kirov''': Well there won't I may only be much talking out of a ship my professional interests but I believe that we need to be able to defend if the SIFfails..ourselves out here.
Kirov'''Salak''': Good point well madeWell there won't be much of a ship to defend if the SIF fails...
Salak'''Kirov''': In trying to get the interface working, have you beenadjusting a few cables, perhaps trying to linkup or check theconnections between the weapons and the interface?Good point well made.
Kirov'''Salak''': I may In trying to get the interface working, have made you been adjusting a few cables, perhaps trying to linkup or check the odd tweak here connections between the weapons and there....the interface?
::John couldn't help but look sheepish. Perhaps it was that greenpulsey thing that didn't quite fit back properly.....or 'Kirov''': I may have made the orangehumming thingodd tweak here and there....::
'''Salak''': Tweak?
'''Kirov''': It was a point of personnal pride. I like to do my own work.
'''Salak''': With respect, the needs of the many outweigh the needs of thefew sir. Engineers ability with the circuits would be of benefit tothe whole crew where as satisfying your 'pride' is likely to be lessbeneficial to the ship overall.
'''Kirov''': Yes I know... Pride cometh before a fall.
'''Salak''': Indeed...
'''Kirov''': Well do you think you can fix it?
'''Salak''': Everything is able to be fixed Commander, given the correctequipment and time. The other repairs are close to completion andwe're almost ready for a shakedown so we can start to fix the damagefairly soon. Generally weapon repairs can be done in flight,although this is not the safest sector of space...
'''Kirov''': I'm not letting this ship out of docks withoutweapons. Not here anyway
'''Salak''': At the moment, I would advise against trying the torpedo launchers...
'''Kirov''': Oh yes?
'''Salak''': The wires have been mixed with those for the shuttlebay doors. Youalso linked the Phasers to the Replicators....
'''Kirov''': Well there goes my afternoon tea
'''Salak''': Unless you wish to explain why we are shooting full phasers at thestation, I'd suggest everyone try to give up tea for the time being...
'''Kirov''': I see... well look on the bright side
'''Salak''': Bright side?
'''Kirov''': If we get attacked we can always baffle our enemies in to submissionusing the insanely effective diversion of jetisoned cargo and tea bags....
'''Salak''': I fail to see how throwing a tea bag at an enemy vessel would helpthe situation...
'''Kirov''': Quite simple... no-one wants to fight a crazy person.
'''Salak''': ::raises eyebrow:: I suppose that is somewhat true...
'''Kirov''': Well I think I've done enough damage here. I don't want to hinder youmore than I already have.
'''Salak''': Thank you...
'''Kirov''': Well I better get to my office. Apparently a whole heap of newtactical data has come in on this sector
'''Salak''': How interesting...
'''Kirov''': Oh you have no idea the paper work I have to file. Mission reports,tactical briefings, eyes onlyinformation..... I have to read all this stuff then go around [[Deep Space 17|the station]] pretending I don't know any of it... It's like I've become some sort ofsecret agent here or something..
'''Salak''': Curious... given the comparison; are you a secret agent, sir?
'''Kirov''': I'd tell you. ::Kirov's face went stoney for a second:: but then I'dhave to shoot you.
'''Salak''': You could get in severe trouble for shooting an... ::Kirov chuckledas Salak realised he'd been joking::
<nowiki>::</nowiki>Kirovchuckled as Salak realised he'd been joking:: Oh yeah before I forget. I have a few new phaser arrays coming in toupgrade the station. Ithink it's time we gave our station a few teeth. Do you reckon you and yourlads will be able to install them or should I ask that some installationteams come with them?
Salak'''Kirov''': A Oh yeah before I forget. I have a few new phaser arrays should be manageable given the engineering crewsexperience reactivating coming in to upgrade the station. I doubt think it's time we gave our station a seperate few teeth. Do you reckon you and your lads will be able to install them or should I ask that some installation teamwould be required.teams come with them?
Kirov'''Salak''': Right thenA few phaser arrays should be manageable given the engineering crews experience reactivating the station. I'll send the final confirmation tostarfleet then. Catch you later Salakdoubt a seperate installation team would be required.
