[SCENE: Realm spacedock. ISS Pegasus has just returned from a shakedown voyage to test its new warp core.
In the bay, 750 kellicams off the port bow sits the Realm’s newest vessel and soon-to-be flagship, Titanic.]

VENOMOUS: As Kirk once said, “My friends, the great experiment”.
MERLIN: One hopes this vessel fares better than her namesake.

KORRIOTH: What the f…?!?!
VENOMOUS (towards intercom: Engineering! Ozy, what’s going on down there…?! [No answer.] OZY!!!! Korrioth, get down there and–
OZY MCCOOL (over intercom): Engineering to Bridge! We’ve got containment field failure down here! All the power couplings have blown and I have coolant leak everywhere!!! I estimate three-and-a-half minutes until a warp core breach!!!
VENOMOUS: Shit! RED ALERT!!! All hands to escape pods!! ABANDON SHIP!!!
