The Boudicca has been ordered to the Lubelter system to intercept two rogues Cardassian warships. With any luck the ships will cease and desist any further trespasses once they see the Boudicca enter the system. The Boudicca has seen its fair share of battles and one more wouldn't hurt. Or would it?
En route the crew will prepare the departments for a captain's inspection. The skilled and trained crew have time and time again shown their resilience and this time is no different and requires no less. Each department works hours on end to ensure that they are prepared for anything once they reach the Lubelter system and engage the Cardassians. Engineering has come up with a couple of fail safes on the off chance that things get hairy once they arrive.
