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.

Engineering Officer

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

Communications Specialist

The Communications Specialist 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 Specialist 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 Specialist reports to the Asst and Chief Engineer.

Computer Systems Specialist

The Computer Systems Specialist is a specialized Engineer. The new generation of Computer systems are highly developed. This system needs much maintenance and the Computer Systems Specialist was introduced to relieve the Science Officer, whose duty this was in the very early days.

A small team is assigned to the Computer Systems Specialist, which is made up from NCO personnel assigned by the Asst. and Chief Engineer. The Computer Systems Specialist reports to the Asst and Chief Engineer.

Damage Control Specialist

The Damage Control Specialist is a specialized Engineer. The Damage Control Specialist controls all damage control aboard the ship when it gets damaged in battle.

A small team is assigned to the Damage Control Specialist which is made up from NCO personnel assigned by the Asst. and Chief Engineer. The Damage Control Specialist reports to the Asst. and Chief Engineer.

Impulse Systems Specialist

The Impulse Systems Specialist is a specialized Engineer. The complexity of the impulse systems of any starship is further complicated by 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 who's role to to ensure the impulse systems run under any condition.

A small team is assigned to the Impulse Systems Specialist which is made up from NCO personnel, assigned by the Asst. and Chief Engineer. The Warp Systems Specialist reports to the Asst and Chief Engineer.

Matter / Energy Systems Specialist

The Matter / Energy Systems Specialist is a specialized Engineer. All aspect of matter energy transfers with the sole exception of the warp drive systems are handled by the Matter/Energy Systems Specialist. Such areas involved are transporter and replicator systems.

The Matter/Energy Systems Specialist 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 Systems Specialist reports to the Asst and Chief Engineer.

Sensor Systems Specialist

The Sensor Systems Specialist 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 Systems Specialist, which is made up from NCO personnel, assigned by the Asst. and Chief Engineer. The Sensor Systems Specialist reports to the Asst and Chief Engineer.

Shuttlecraft Maintenance Specialist

Shuttlecraft Maintenance is a specialized Engineer post.

Structural / Environmental Systems Specialist

The Structural and Environmental Systems Specialist is a specialised 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 Systems Specialist is made up from NCO personnel, assigned by the Asst. and Chief Engineer. The Structural and Environmental Systems Specialist reports to the Asst and Chief Engineer.

Transporter Chief

The Transporter Chief is responsible for all transports to and from other ships and any planetary bodies. When transporting is not going on, the Transporter Chief is responsible for keeping the transporters running at peak efficiency.

The team assigned to the Transporter Chief is made up from NCO personnel, assigned by the Asst. and Chief Engineer. The Transporter Chief reports to the Asst and Chief Engineer.

Warp Systems Specialist

The Warp Systems Specialist is a specialized Engineer. The complexity of the Warp Drive system and impulse systems of any starship is further complicated by 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 who's role to to ensure the Warp Drive system and impulse systems runs under any condition.

A small team is assigned to the Warp Systems Specialist which is made up from NCO personnel, assigned by the Asst. and Chief Engineer. The Warp Systems Specialist reports to the Asst and Chief Engineer.
