Excellent candidates for a water pistol flash and potential for several years of bad luck.

I've heard rumors to the effect that electrician's pay has hit a ceiling. Nice to know that these guys have found a work-around...

...or are they just above all that?

Someone tell Scottie we've checked all the transporters and they are not the problem this time. Someone check the power cables in the Jefferies tube.

Aye laddie, indeed it could be a bad power cable, here in Engineering the dilithium cystals are stable and we're puttin' out full power.

Taken on a Friday, shortly before 3:30pm, when the fire alarm circuit was accidentally tripped.

Emergency responders were puzzled by the ladders laying in the empty parking lot and the people hanging from the drop ceiling in the foyer.
