interesting times... maybe

Location: outside environmental control
Timeline: during the red alert
Sarah had been checking the hardpoints for the shuttles they had installed during the last upgrade cycle. They had been tested around Starbase 55, but she wanted to make sure they still worked after a longer trip through space. They couldn't dock shuttles at the moment, as they didn't want to let the Romulans know about the new hardpoints. They probably knew already, but that was how things were done.
What they could do was test all the mechanisms and they were just working one when the red alert claxons sounded. After Sarah shut down the test program, the team scattered to their battle stations. In her case, this was second-in-command of damage control party 9 just outside of environmental control.
She arrived as one of the last, as she had a quite long trek through the ship. She was glad to see that the team had already its equipment out and was ready for whatever would happen. Sarah checked with the ensign in command of the group, but there was no combat or anything. For now there was nothing to do but wait.
