The Main Engineering control center on Deck 11 serves as a master control for the ship's warp propulsion system, as well as the impulse propulsion system and other engineering systems. Main Engineering also serves as a backup control center in the event of a failure of the Main Bridge. Workstations at this location can be reconfigured to emulate Conn, Ops, Tactical, and other command operations. This is a desirable site for such functions because of its protected location within the Engineering section and its proximity to key warp propulsion system components. Optical Data Network (ODN) hardlines provide protected backup communications to other major systems.

This facility is located immediately adjacent to the matter/antimatter (M/AM) reaction chamber. For safety reasons, a system of containment forcefields are available to protect the Main Engineering control center from the M/AM reaction core chamber in case of serious malfunction, plasma breach, warp core breach, or similar contingency.
