The Viper still has two working phasers, one is charged and one is discharged. One torpedo tube is still functional and is currently loaded and one probe launcher is undamaged but unloaded. Three of the six shields are completely destroyed, one is in good shape and two are very weak. The warp drive has been destroyed with its temperature falling to zero. With the warp drive eliminated, there is not any warp power. The reactors are providing 262 units of power but the ship still used -6 units of battery power last cycle to keep the remaining shields up.
