control system. Control officer CRi will explain you the details…”

Camera_05 turns towards CRi

 

CRi: “Sir, unfortunately we are facing the same problems which earlier teams

 

might have faced. We need to improve a lot in Control System technology.

 

The gravity & ship balancing devices are not working properly;

 

The surface scanner is showing abrupt scale ratios.

 

Also, it always shows an error that ‘surface is too large for scanning’.

 

We need to increase the scaling range for at least 150 times;

 

To be precise its 1 5 3 . 9 0 6 2 8 . . . . . ”
