The Engineering Department
is a hardy department made up of crafty players delegated the task of keeping station infrastructure and life support running. The Station Engineers
and Atmospheric Technicians
report directly to the Chief Engineer
. Engineering roles in cargo are often good environments for players to learn intermediate game mechanics such as construction, EVA, Atmospherics, and power supply. Engineering has access to many tools and materials and are capable of making serious modifications to the station and are often first on scene when part of the station is destroyed. Engineering roles tend to have some major responsibilities and expectations that can have variable effects on the round if not fulfilled, unlike other less engaged departments, engineers are on call and need to be ready to respond.
