Damage reports coming through

Damage reports coming through on the command level on Deep Space 9 after a minor hull breach.

A damage report was a type of report summarizing the damage sustained by a starship or space station to its technological systems, usually due to combat. The commanding officer typically would ask for a verbal damage report immediately after damage is sustained, and also had a written one prepared by the first officer on a PADD.

When Captain Jonathan Archer was returned to Enterprise NX-01 in 2154 by the Xindi-Aquatics, he was given a damage report on a PADD by Subcommander T'Pol in sickbay. (ENT: "Damage")

In 2293, Captain John Harriman asked Ensign Demora Sulu for a damage report after the USS Enterprise-B escaped from a strange energy phenomenon. Sulu reported that there was some buckling on the ship's starboard nacelle as well as a hull breach in the engineering section, but emergency force fields were holding. (Star Trek Generations)

Commander William T. Riker prepared a written damage report for Captain Jean-Luc Picard's review in his ready room after the incident with the Tamarians in 2368. (TNG: "Darmok")

That same year, when the USS Enterprise-D was caught in a temporal causality loop, Commander William T. Riker requested a damage report after the ship was clipped by the USS Bozeman. This request ended up being repeated with each successive iteration of the loop until the two ships finally broke out of it. Doctor Beverly Crusher reported that there were casualty reports coming in from all over the ship and Lieutenant commander Data reported that starboard nacelle had sustained a direct impact and was venting drive plasma. (TNG: "Cause and Effect")

Picard asked Worf for an immediate damage report after Major "Rakal" ordered the IRW Khazara to fire upon the USS Enterprise-D. Worf reported there was minimal damage as the disruptor beam had little power. (TNG: "Face of the Enemy")

After the USS Saratoga was severely damaged by a Borg cube at the Battle of Wolf 359, Benjamin Sisko ordered a damage report. The tactical officer reported damage to decks 1 through 4. (DS9: "Emissary")

In 2369, Major Kira Nerys requested a damage report after Cardassian vessels attacked Deep Space 9, which had moved to stake a claim to the Bajoran wormhole. Chief engineering officer Miles O'Brien reported a direct hit on level 14 and that there were no casualties, as this area contained only empty storage bays. (DS9: "Emissary")

That same year, when Vash and Q were present on Deep Space 9, a hull breach occurred. Benjamin Sisko asked for a damage report. Kira Nerys reported of a hull breach in an upper bulkhead while Miles O'Brien reported hull fractures throughout the station. (DS9: "Q-Less")

In 2372, when the USS Voyager suffered an attack from a number of Kazon vessels, Ensign Harry Kim informed Captain Kathryn Janeway that there were a number of damage reports coming in, including a report of a hull breach on deck 4. (VOY: "Alliances")

A "full damage report" includes information that is usually part of a status report, including antimatter supplies, and casualties. In 2372, Captain Kathryn Janeway asked for a full damage report, which Tuvok provided in such detail. (VOY: "Deadlock")

In 2373, when their class 2 shuttle crash landed on a Nezu colony planet, Lieutenant Tuvok asked Neelix to inspect its toroidal antennae and provide a damage report. Neelix, eager to help, suggested that he might be able to repair them, but Tuvok insisted that a damage report would be sufficient. (VOY: "Rise")

In 2374, after successfully destroying a Jem'Hadar attack ship, Commander Karen Farris gave Captain Tim Watters a written preliminary damage report. (DS9: "Valiant") That same year, Commander Chakotay requested full damage reports from all decks of Voyager after a translocator was used to steal vital technology from the ship. (VOY: "Concerning Flight")

That same year, in the alternate timeline known as the Year of Hell, Captain Kathryn Janeway requested a damage report following a crippling attack on the USS Voyager by a Krenim warship. Lieutenant commander Tuvok reported that there were fifteen wounded, main power was down, environmental control was down on decks 7 & 8 and the computer was offline. Later, following additional attacks by the Krenim, Janeway requested Tuvok to assemble a security team and do a deck by deck survey of the ship to provide her a full damage report. (VOY: "Year of Hell")

The phrase "damage report" were the first two words spoken on Star Trek: Voyager. Chakotay asked his crew of the Val Jean for the report during the battle with the Vetar. (VOY: "Caretaker") The phrase was also the first two words spoken on the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Cause and Effect" and ended up being repeated a total of three times within the episode as events repeated due to the temporal casualty loop.
