Fresh from his rather stimulating round of banter with the new medical officer, the Captain was now headed to the nearest turbo lift when his brain suddenly gave him the urge to check in with one of his repair team leaders. Tapping his commbadge, the Captain opened an internal comm channel to the Chief Science Officer. "=/\=Farrell to Lieutenant Behar."

Hearing her comm badge go off, Nayeli sat up too quickly and hit her head on the console above her. She'd almost forgotten where she was working, but she had no idea why the captain would be calling her. "=/\=Behar here, go ahead Captain," she answered as she crawled out from under the console, rubbing her head.

"=/\=Just thought I'd check in and see how you are getting on," the Captain sounded positively cheery as he entered the turbolift at the end of deck 12 but held off on directing it anywhere for now.

"=/\=Not to bad considering I'm trying to fix all of the science systems while stuck in my lab with the rest of my team. Though, right now it is just me." She sat down in one of the chairs to check on how her progress was going.

"=/\=I'll head your way and see what I can do to help," Farrell told before directing the turbolift to deck _. "I'll be with you shortly, Lieutenant. Farrell out."

Sighing, Nayeli took a drink of the water she had sitting on one of the tables before crawling back underneath the console. "What the hell could the Captain want to do down here? Does he know anything about the science systems..." she mumbled rather loudly as she started back into her work.

It wasn't long until she would get her answer as a short while later, the Captain wandered into the science lab and looked around until he spotted the Scientist, buried in her work. "Lieutenant," he announced his arrival chirpily. "Can I put any of my engineering skills to use?" he offered.

Hitting her head again on the underside of the console, Nayeli groaned and looked out, "Oh, Captain. Didn't take you long to get here. Um... as for your engineering skills?" She came back out and looked around for a PADD she'd been using. "I can't get the damned sensors above 78%. I've done all I can but something seems shorted out or...something. I'm no engineer but they said it isn't a priority."

"May I?" the Captain queried as he gestured to the scientist's tricorder. "I have some experience with sensors from my time as Tactical Officer on the Ahwahnee. We always had problems with the bloody things when trying to link the tactical systems with them," he revealed as he rolled up the sleeves of his uniform tunic and prepared to get to work.

Handing the tricorder over, Nay nodded, "Go for it. Honestly, I could use the small break and have you look at it for a bit." She grabbed her water and took a sip. "For how new this ship is, I don't know why things are so cross-wired."

"I'm begining to realise that they've cut corners," the Captain frowned sadly as he took possession of the tricorder and began tapping away. "What with the Borg attack and the Klingon civil war, Starfleet Command wants to churn out ships quickly, but then we have to deal with the things that go wrong," Seb told as he began to scan the area with the device and then walked across to one of the bulkheads. He lifted off the panel and began to scan the circuitry inside.

"Cut corners is an understatement. I wouldn't trust the long ranges sensors right now if we were to go out on a mission, not at how they are currently operating." Nayeli rubbed the back of her neck. "Until engineering is done, I'm not sure what more progress can really be made here."

Silently, the Captain continued with his analysis of the ships sensor systems as he listened to the words of his scientist and, of course, she was right. He wouldn't even take the ship out of dock without the sensors functioning properly. He hated that corners had been cut, but he kind of understood the urgency to make up the losses of Wolf 359 and, as the Galaxy was the most capable class in the fleet, they were churning out the available spaceframes as quickly as possible.

"AH HA!" he eventually exclaimed as he waved the scientist over. "There's an issue with the connections between the sensor palates and the tactical sensor array; its shorting out some of the relays which is reducing efficiency," the Captain revealed, "it's a tactical problem, not a science one, but it is one we can hopefully fix," he smiled.

Looking over at the readings, Nayeli could only shake her head, "That's why I didn't catch it before. I didn't dig that deeply into the tactical systems. I was only focusing on the science systems. I'm glad you were able to find it or I'd be butting heads with who knows who to figure this thing out." She finally set her water down. "So, how do we fix it?"

"Well," the Captain passed the Lieutenant the tricorder and then folded his arms across his chest as he contemplated the best way of fixing the situation. "The best thing to do would be to start at the tactical sensor array and wherever the hell it was linked to the main sensor grid," he shrugged as he gave his suggestion, hoping that it didn't sound to implausible to his scientist colleague.

Taking the tricorder back, she nodded. "Were you able to find out where that was? So many connections aren't in the right places, things are cross-wired into other systems. No wonder we are having so much trouble. I found some of the replicators routed through some of the circuitry in here even. That...was a mess to pull apart."

He looked at the tricorder in her hand and pointed to an area on the display. "I think we'd be best to start here on deck 8," he advised.

Looking at the display herself, Nayeli nodded, "Agreed. I might not know a ton of engineering, but I know enough that it looks like the best place to start. Going to put my skills to the test with this I think, Captain."

"Let me know if you need anything further Lieutenant," Sebastian smiled, "Lieutenant Lynch has taken temporary charge of engineering. He can send you someone if you need them," he added as he picked up his uniform jacket. "I'm heading to the bridge, so when you get it sorted, I'll run the necessary diagnostics from up there."

"That sounds like a plan to me." She stated as she gathered up her tools, "I hope I can sort it without having to pull an engineer away from something else. Once the diagnostics are ready to be run, I'll let you know."

"Don't you worry about pulling engineers," the Captain shook his head, "if you need to, you do it. They should have got it right in the first bloody place!"

Nayeli smirked, "I think you have faith in my engineering skills than I do, Captain. But, I do agree with you, they should have done it right, no matter their time crunch." She headed towards the door, "Let you know when this damned thing is done."

"Wicked," he smiled before bidding farewell. Heading off in the opposite direction to his subordinate, the Captain looked back at her briefly, then continued on his way, a little skip in his step. Yep, he was confident that his science department was in good hands. Engineering, however, he was much less confident about.
