The #3 more than likely had a lot to do with the devastation caused to #2. These two systems are interconnected via several different sub-systems and interconnected thru the user pcm mechanical processor. If there is an excessive overflow of system #3 this can cause a reduction in CPU cycles per second and many input systems can be affected. The #2 sub-system was damaged when the CPU cycles of the mechanical processing unit in operation at the time, malfunctioned causing processing errors and the inability to handle basic hand tool routines, which resulted in the damage to #2.
Even more drastic errors in processing can occur when the operation of the entire Main System is attempted with an overflow of #3. This operation can result in the calling of the OSP (Outside Systems Processor) called “Bail Bond”, This system can be very time consuming and costly to operate, and may result in the idleness of the entire Main System for an extended period of time.
As for the effect of #3 on the #1 sub-system, this sub-system is protected by a force field, which is referred to as the “Ican’tquitegettoitwithahammer” protection zone. This “zone” is in place in those hard to reach areas of the propulsion and power distribution units and therefore protects critical areas of these sub-systems from #3, …. but only to a point.
Caution should be used when operating the #3 sub-system and not allow it to overflow into other critical systems.
Hope this helps
