Engineering, or main engineering (Klingonese translation: reactor pit), is the location from which a starship's main power systems are controlled. Engineering is the primary assignment of engineers and chief engineers.

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 assembly (also known as the warp core) is located in engineering.

Engineering can also be used as a command and control center, overriding primary centers such as the bridge or auxiliary control.
