Solve electrical puzzles in our escape-room-style Shuttlecraft to get all of the ships systems back online fast.


Whilst it often seems like the Bridge is where all the action is at on a Starfleet ship the crews of the Lower Decks also have their fair share of the fun. Whatever extreme conditions are thrown at them, the Lower Decks team will work day and night to keep the ship running and get crucial systems back online fast. It takes a certain type of character to be able to fight off a giant spider, deal with floods, extreme temperature conditions and blackouts or talk down an angry Klingon at the same time as solving the complex electrical puzzle needed to get the ship's warp core back online. Have you got what it takes to join the Lower Decks crew?


An unexpected EM pulse has wreaked havoc with the shutte's systems and EVERYTHING has crashed. The Captain is worried the pulse was a deliberate attack and has ordered the Lower Decks crew to get the systems back up and running as fast as possible. How quickly can you rebuild the shuttle?


Open up all the shuttle panels and trouble shoot the problems you encounter until all the shuttle systems are back online.
