The Chief Engineer, or Ship's Chief Engineer, or SCE, is responsible for the repair and maintenance of all ship's or station's systems.

Duties & FunctionsEdit

This includes pre-scheduled preventative maintenance, system upgrades and repairs to correct malfunctioning or damaged systems. The SCE is easily the most demanding officer posting aboard a starship or space station next to the commanding officer because the SCE's responsibility is virtually every part of the ship or station, with the exception of the crew.


The SCE is a department head position requiring a rank of Lieutenant or above. On large vessels, the SCE is usually a Lieutenant commander. If the chief engineer holds the rank of captain, then he/she would be known as the captain of engineering.
