"Sir! We have a failure in the Vortex drives! If we don't exit now the drive will soon explode!" The Navigation officer aboard the SvennBires shouted.
Uutnok calmly replied, "Bring us out of Vortex space now." There was a sudden lurch as the ship returned to normal space. "I want to know our status and how long it will take to repair the drives," he said after they had stopped.
"Sir currently our Vortex drives are non-operational and our main engines may overheat if we use them, we are drifting in space. Engineering is reporting leeks in the drive; it will take several hours to repair them."
The officer on Uutnok's left responded "Ok, well then I guess we sit here until they are done, take a reading on the scanners to check for any ships nearby."
"Yes Sir...... I'm reading nothing on radar, but there is a faint reading on the Vortex Radar, it may just be an anomaly."
"If a ship appears the Anti-sensor arrays wont help, they will have detected us too, just hail them and ask for assistance," Captain Uutnok commanded. His destroyer floated in space, a small gas trail leaking from its rear, the crew slowly working to repair it but it would take a while. Their Journey to the L.M.C. Border was cut short by this accident, but they may not reach their destination as planned. It might take longer than expected.
