Starfleet Command Subspace Transmission Intercepted
The ship's com. Link rang thru the hollowed corridors of the attack carrier." Captain Reaves.. report to Alpha bay...flight Alpha bay, experimental craft, another one of engineering's brain child's. Down the long corridor he ran, tightening buckles and adjusting straps on his turbo suit as he went. Down the lift to Alpha bays ready room. Slightly out of breath he pushed his I. D. card into security door. Again sound of rushing air and the red doors slid open. A stocky figure awaited his arrival Captain Ric Murphy Engineering's best designer Reaves stop short, not expecting an upper command officer. Snapping to attention he saluted smartly. "Commander David Reaves reporting sir." Murphy never looked up from the computer council. Returning the salute a tight smile spread across his rugged face. "Reaves.. they say you are the best we have .. well.. come with me." Placing his palm on the control panel a mechanical voice responded immediately. "Captain Murphy.. you are security cleared to enter." A responding rush of air equalized the two compartments as the two entered. Reaves squinted slightly as his eyes adjusted to the red lighting of rail one of the launch bay. Stopping short he could feel the rush of adrenalin surging through his body.

Reaves passed his hand over the sensor and the canopy opened slowly.
