CRM 2011 how to update a related entity field using Javascript

Hello

I need to alter a related field using Javscript.
My specific requirement is to change a field value in an incident when an activity is saved therefore need the javscript for the onsave event of the activity.

It does seem possible to use workflows as the incident is able to be closed before the activity workflow triggers causing it to fail.

Thanks
