Engineering Department

Starship Chief Engineers have a large staff to help them keep a Starship together. These are some of the positions that could be filed by Player Characters and NPCs.

Chief Engineer

The Chief Engineer is responsible for the condition of all systems and equipment on board a Starfleet ship or facility. S/he oversees maintenance, repairs and upgrades of all equipment. S/he is also responsible for the many repairs teams during crisis situations.

Assistant Chief Engineer

The Assistant Chief Engineer assists the Chief Engineer in the daily work; in issues regarding mechanical, administrative matters and co-ordaining repairs with other departments. If so required the Asst. Chief Engineer must be able to take over as Chief Engineer, and thus must be versed in current information regarding the ship or facility.

Engineer

There are several non-specialized Engineers aboard of each vessel. The Chief Engineer assigns them to their duties and his Assistant, performing a number of different tasks as required (i.e. general maintenance and repair). Generally Engineers are assigned to a more specialized Engineering person to assist in there work as so requested by the specialized Engineer.

Communications Engineer

The Communications Officer is a specialized Engineer. Communication aboard a ship or facility takes two basic forms, voice and data. Both are handled by the onboard computer system and dedicated hardware. The vastness and complexity of this system requires a dedicated team to maintain the system. The Communications Engineer is the Officer in charge of this team, which is made up from NCO personnel, assigned to the team by the Asst. and Chief Engineer. The Communications Engineer reports to the Asst and Chief Engineer.

Matter/Energy Engineer

The Matter/Energy Engineer is a specialised Engineer. All aspect of matter energy transfers with the sole exception of the warp drive systems are handled by the Matter/Energy Engineer. Such areas involved are transporter and replicator systems. The Matter/Energy Engineer is the Officer in charge of a small team, which is made up from NCO personnel, assigned by the Asst. and Chief Engineer. The Matter/Energy Engineer reports to the Asst and Chief Engineer.

Warp Drive Engineer

The Warp Drive Engineer is a specialized Engineer. The complexity of the Warp Drive system and impulse systems of any starship if further complicated the different settings required for each ship. No two vessels have exactly the same system aboard, and all settings require careful maintenance and checks to ensure peek performance. On smaller vessels this task may be performed by the Chief Engineer, but larger vessel have a dedicated Officer whose role to ensure the Warp Drive system and impulse systems runs under any condition. A small team is assigned to the Warp Drive Engineer, which is made up from NCO personnel, assigned by the Asst. and Chief Engineer. The Warp Drive Engineer reports to the Asst and Chief Engineer.

Structural and Environmental Engineer

The Structural and Environmental Engineer is a specialized Engineer. From a small ship/facility to a large one, all requires constant monitoring. The hull, bulkheads, walls, Jeffrey's tubes, turbolifts, structural integrity field, internal dampening field, and environmental systems are all monitored and maintained by this officer and his/her team. The team assigned to the Structural and Environmental Engineer is made up from NCO personnel, assigned by the Asst. and Chief Engineer. The Structural and Environmental Engineer reports to the Asst and Chief Engineer.

Sensor Maintenance Engineer

The Sensor Maintenance Engineer is a specialized Engineer. Dedicated to the maintenance and operation of the navigation deflector, guidance, helm, reaction control systems and all other sensor systems. A small team is assigned to the Sensor Maintenance Engineer, which is made up from NCO personnel, assigned by the Asst. and Chief Engineer. The Sensor Maintenance Engineer reports to the Asst and Chief Engineer.

Shuttlecraft Maintenance

Shuttlecraft Maintenance is a specialized Engineer post. This Officer is assigned to the Shuttle Maintenance Deck (sometimes called the Flight Deck, but generally only if Fighter Pilot personnel are assigned), and is responsible for the service and repair of all small vessel assigned to the Starship or facility. The flight deck must maintain a set number for craft at all times for evacuation purposes in case of emergency. A team is assigned to the Engineer in charge of Shuttlecraft Maintenance, which is made up from NCO personnel, assigned by the Asst. and Chief Engineer. The Engineer in charge of Shuttlecraft Maintenance reports to the Asst and Chief Engineer. Should the vessel of facility have a dedicated Fighter Pilot Department assigned, then maintenance of these craft falls under the service of the Shuttlecraft Maintenance teams, Engineer in charge of Shuttlecraft Maintenance will report required information to the Wing Commander.

Computer Engineer

The Computer Engineer is a specialized Engineer. The new generations of Computer systems are highly developed. This system needs much maintenance and the Computer Engineer was introduced to relieve the science Officer, whose duty this was in the very early days. A small team is assigned to the Computer Engineer, which is made up from NCO personnel assigned by the Asst. and Chief Engineer. The Warp Drive Engineer reports to the Asst and Chief Engineer.

Engineer's Mate (NCO)

The Engineer's Mate trains and supervises Engineering crewmen in departmental operations, repairs, and protocols; maintains duty assignments for all Engineering personnel; and is qualified to temporarily act as Chief Engineer if so ordered. The Engineer's Mate reports to the Chief Engineer.
