For example:

LaForge: Captain, we have a problem, the [tech] is [tech]. But I think if we [tech] the [tech] we can get out of this.
Picard: Very well, Mr. LaForge, [tech] the [tech].
LaForge: Captain, the [tech] didn't work, but if we reverse the [tech], then we can [tech].
Picard: Reverse the [tech], Mr. LaForge.

You could always do that. Just stick in [tech] where you need help and post the whole dialogue here, we can help fill in the blanks. Just be prepared for a certain amount of silliness.
This is why the TNG technical manual got written.
