Worf could barely hear his own words as the roar filled his senses and the ground vibrated with impending doom. the Klingon never moved faster or more efficiently as he leapt through the hatch and spun the wheel shut behind him. He braced himself on the wheel, daring the terrible, oncoming force to rop the hatch from his grasp...
