Personal Log :: Ens. Kira Shiryankin, Engineering Officer
Well, the ship has been joined together now, and the harder work is beginning. One might think that the joining of the two pieces of the ship back together would be the hard part, and in some ways, it is ... but now comes all of the calibrating and making sure all of the systems are up to spec, so to speak. Some people might allow the computer to do most of the work, and no doubt, the computer will be busy doing various parts of this ... but the Command Staff here seems to be the type to want their departments to get their hands dirty with a personal approach to these tasks.
There are some things that should not perhaps exist, and this upgraded USS Eclipse is probably one of them. The Galaxy class ships are getting older, and while it has not come to a dangerous situation yet, there is only so much you can do to old systems and keep them in tip-top shape. The Eclipse probably shuld ahve been put out to pasture a long while ago ... not upgraded to a dreadnought, with a third warp nacelle. There is only so much more these systems can take before they get to the point where one mistake could cost lives.
That being said, I can see where the tender loving care put into this ship by the command staff and the crew might just extend the life of the ship itself. I have never seen a group of people more happy to do a simple engineering diagnostic, and just after the rejoining, I did power relay hookups to places in the ship I am not sure I ever visited before.
Currently, I have some members of the Enginnering staff making sure that whatever the Bridge needs, they get. We're apparently still in close quarters with a Tholian ship, and I don't want anyone to not be able to perform a miracle whtn the Captain calls down from heaven, demanding one. We'll deliver, if I have anything to say about it.
