A mechanic is a person who uses tools to maintain, repair and build machinery.
History and specifics[edit | edit source]
When Captain Atish Khatami was confronted by Lieutenant Ming Xiong in the corridor of the USS Endeavour (NCC-1895) about a Starfleet Intelligence mission, she immediately dragged him into a maintenance bay to talk in private. Two enlisted mechanics were currently welding in the room and quickly vacated it when Atish ordered them out. (VAN - Declassified novella: The Stars Look Down)
