|USS Artemis |
The Artemis’ Engineering Sections are mainly confined to Decks 14-16, but has some areas on other decks.
Engineering's primary purpose is to be the central point for control of all engineering systems aboard a starship, especially those related to propulsion and power generation. The matter/antimatter reaction chamber (also known as the warp core) is located in engineering. Main Engineering is spread over three decks (Decks 14, 15, and 16). You can find the Chief Engineer's Office here.
Chief Engineer's Office
The Chief Engineer's Office is located on the middle level of Main Engineering, on Deck 15. The office displays every ship's system and enables the Chief Engineer to access any engineering system straight away. If the captain asks for something, the Chief Engineer can answer from their office. The Chief Engineer aboard the Artemis-A is Lieutenant Hallia Yellir.
Lieutenant Yellir’s Office is what she calls ‘organized chaos’, her desk filled with PADDs with all the latest reports from her staff, while the far walls have cushy couches pushed against them. Near her workplace is a single colorful candle, a memento gifted to her in commemoration of her brief stint as Acting CO of the USS Berlin.
A fusion reactor or fusion power plant is a power generation device which uses nuclear fusion to generate energetic plasma for various uses. The ship has two of these reactors that flank the Warp Core on Deck 14.
Warp Core is the common designation for the main energy reactor powering the propulsion system on warp-capable starships. The Artemis comes equipped with a Class XV Warp Engine, capable of sustaining up to warp twelve for close to twelve hours at a time, and the massive construct stands proudly across three decks in an open-floor room. Various catwalks and ladders are placed in strategic locations, allowing ease of movements to the various consoles around the core, as well as to the core itself.
Warp Nacelle Access
A nacelle is an outboard engine housing structure on spacecraft. This area is accessed from Deck 14, where long stretches of catwalk allows passage.
The impulse drive is a common propulsion system used on starships to achieve high sublight speeds. This system is accessed from Deck 16.
Thrusters are propulsion devices used aboard starships that generate very little speed but are useful in various situations. It is possible to use maneuvering thrusters to alter a ship's course, to rotate about an axis, or to move short, precise distances without the use of impulse drive.
Types of thrusters:
- Aft thrusters
- Bow thrusters
- Control thrusters
- Forward thrusters
- Guidance thrusters
- Landing thrusters
- Parabolic thrusters
- Polarity thrusters
- RCS thrusters
- Sub-impulse thrusters
Thruster Fuel Storage Tank
These tanks store the fuel used by the ships thrusters. They can be found on Deck 16 accessed via Lower Main Engineering.
