Location: Deck 7 - Saucer Section
Perhaps one of the most important and sensitive areas of the ship, and located directly next to the Computer Core, is the Operation Center. Here, operations personnel monitor and allocate resources throughout the entire ship. All of the information handled here is also fed directly to the OPS station on the Bridge.
Located adjacent to the Operation Center, of all the Department Head offices the Operation Manager's office possibly has the most detailed interface with the ship's computer, and is where the Operations Manager oversee the Department when they are not manning the Operations station on the Bridge.
Emergency Response Team Control and ERT Equipment Storage
In an emergency, the Operations Manager or Assistant Operations Manager is tasked with coordinating ship wide damage control efforts. To make this task easier, the Emergency Response Team Control and equipment storage are both located in the same section as the Operation Office. Damage control teams will muster in Emergency Response Team Control, gather the appropriate equipment and be detailed to damaged areas of the ship by the Operation Center. The Operation Center, in conjunction with the Operations Station on the Bridge, continually coordinates damage control efforts.
