Starship Engineer

The captain and the bridge officers may run the ship, the other crewmen have their jobs and do them well, but you are the one who makes sure she keeps going – even after someone else blows holes in her. You may be underpaid and underappreciated, but you’re the most important member of the crew, and in crisis time everyone remembers it.
