It takes Koba a considerable amount of doing, but he manages to put the
"awake" sequence into suspend.  The process had not go so far underway
that it was unstoppable, though it was a near thing.

It's then that Louissa pops her head in the bridge again.

"Um, Koba, when you've got a minute." she says.  "I think you need to take
a look at the engine room, or what's left of it."
