Now what is this

Location: Engineering lab
Timeline: while away team is on the planet
It had been a very boring shift. The ship had come out of overhaul and everything had been tested well for a change. That meant that except for monitoring things and some routine maintenance, and not even a lot of that at the moment, there was nothing to do. The chief had run an exercise in damage control, but that was all excitement there was in the shift.
Luckily for her, Sarah had managed to get her hands on the focus assembly of the shield generators of a Daedalus class starship. She didn't know how the guy at Starbase 55 had gotten his hands on it, as it was around 200 years old, but she had scanned it and confirmed it was that age. She had managed to buy it and had brought it on the ship to have a closer look.
She had requested some lab space in the engineering labs and as there was little going on, it had been granted. Now she had the focus assembly on the bench and was scanning the thing. She was familiar with older technology due to her upbringing in a lost colony where they had one old Constitution class starship in orbit. But this was quite exiting to take appart.
She removed the front plate and looked at the inside of the assembly. It looked very simple, at least when compared to the ones installed in the Eclipse. While softly humming to herself, she continued her investigations in the old technology.
