"You there! I need a spectromoscope in the hortaskew light spectrum! Stat! This organic lorfy meta storgris is crystallizing on the tempered alloy joint line! If we don't do something quick then it could penetrate the horizon of our animorphic reality layers and cause a catastrophic spunty-overload-meltdown-collapse-superdrive-event which will eventually lead to our sonic ultra epidermis to cease functioning at a comfortable range!"
How come I didn't get a technobabble bonus?

Replace the burnt skin of the crewmembers with liquid exo-plasmoid matrices extracted from live blogumites to boost their midi-chlorian half-lifetitudeinalism.

Re-infulctufy the broken pylon to create a di-nepulsoid inverse bubblespace field, which should di-lapse the enemy Kringoid Engines, collapsing their cloaking!

Hyper-charge the pneumatic launch strip, disengage the munitions airlock and dump a big steaming payload of MK-7 trans-directional tracking mines between us and the last-known location of the enemy ship!

"Trying to hide, eh? It's no use you twats, I don't need light to see! Quick, men! Fire off a high intensity omni-directional gamma burst and search for rebounds through the radon scanner! I want a lock on their location stat!

Science Officer Dermonster gets +1 to his rolls this turn!

Replace the burnt skin of the crewmembers with liquid exo-plasmoid matrices extracted from live blogumites to boost their midi-chlorian half-lifetitudeinalism.

[Roll: 1 (+1 Sickbay, +1 Technobabble) = 3] Unfortunately, the exo-plasmoid matrices reacted with leftover stains of plasmaricideochlorianoblontasium from the burns, and the bodies of the wounded began to melt down. Soon there was just a pile of acidic, half-liquid sludges and skeletons on the bed. Oops.
Turns out that one of the wounded was a Redshirt serving under Tactical Officer Nosten Nostovar. Double oops.

Hyper-charge the pneumatic launch strip, disengage the munitions airlock and dump a big steaming payload of MK-7 trans-directional tracking mines between us and the last-known location of the enemy ship!

[Roll: 3 (+1 Battlestations, +1 Technobabble, -1 Damage) = 4] With a gritty sound of friction of metal against metal, the mines were launched into the space. Soon, explosions filled the space as the enemy starship began to flicker for a moment, way to the galactic left from the last position, and as soon as the particle disturbance from explosions passed away, the ship was invisible again.

"Trying to hide, eh? It's no use you twats, I don't need light to see! Quick, men! Fire off a high intensity omni-directional gamma burst and search for rebounds through the radon scanner! I want a lock on their location stat!

[Roll: 2 (+1 Science Lab, +1 CO Bonus, +1 Technobabble) = 5] Using the radon scanner coupled with the isotope spectrometer allowed a detection of trail of spatial anti-neutrinos which propably came from the quasi-quarkian posimatrices of the enemy vessel. If the trail was any indication, it seemed that the Battlehawk was making a lengthy, arching approach from the starboard to under USS Fortune.

Re-infulctufy the broken pylon to create a di-nepulsoid inverse bubblespace field, which should di-lapse the enemy Kringoid Engines, collapsing their cloaking!

[Roll: 2 (+1 Main Engineering, +1 Technobabble) = 4] The di-lapsation only lasted for few seconds, during which the other vessel showed up on the tactical and science scanners for several seconds, and the trajectory of said Warhawk did correlate with the trail of anti-neutrinos. The enemy was indeed trying to get 'under' USS Fortune!

~~Turn 3~~

The enemy ship was still under cloak...

@Tactical Officer:

...but the Tactical Officer could easily see that the signature of anti-neutrinos was still making its way under the ship. It seems that the Cytorians were unaware of the sensor tracking their exhaust.

@Science Officer:

One of the power distribution console operators approached his officer.
"Commander Dermonster, sir, I believe that if we use the risky 3rd tachyonic configuration of polymetroid capacitors, we could bypass the Melted-down secondary power relay in the targeting computer and Misaligned power conduit under the floor in Battlestations and thus improve our chances against the sneaky Cytorians, but I believe that if something goes wrong, this might collapse the entire power network to our laser turrets and leave us unable to respond to attacks for a moment..."

@Chief Engineer:

Suddenly, one of the side damage control consoles shot some sparks and went dark. Must've been power burst or something... still, not a major loss.

Take advantage of the melted men's gooinated state to perform a Worcester Reconstitution Maneuver in order to prep their molecules for solidification and non-deceased-ing procedures!

Tell the science officer that switching to third gear would best stabilize the neutrino cortex!
