Access to Main Engineering, or simply Engineering, is on Deck 19, though the room itself spans three 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 is located in Engineering.

Engineering can be turned into a command and control center by converting a number of consoles to duplicate the stations on the bridge. The software is already preloaded onto these consoles and each vessel has specific procedures in place in case a situation warrants.

Engineering is an open-plan facility, directly accessible from the corridor. Consisting of three levels, it housed the starship's warp core and primary engineering support systems. Inside the main section, the master systems display was the operational focus of the room. Beyond this, heading towards the warp core, the Chief Engineer's office and several support consoles were located on the left, and the Assistant Chief Engineer's console on the right. These formed part of the bulkhead protecting the main part of Engineering from the warp core. Access to the upper level, a circular area surrounding the warp core, could be found by a ladder on the left of the core or an elevator on the right.

The warp core itself is a Class 8B unit, a slightly more advanced design than the Sovereign-Class and features two liquid coolant tanks to maintain optimum core temperature. Warp coolant liquifies organic material on contact, so great care is always exercised around them.
