Engineering for an Excelsior-Class Ship cannot be undertaken by one or two crew members. The Engineering Department of the Lexington is no different. Engineering is broken into various teams, some with special knowledge or experience, etc.
The original Engineering Teams from the USS Lexington-B were named after German numbers (null, eins, funf, sechs, acht, etc)... however, this system is more realistic (and allows for more than 10 engineers!)
Alpha Team: Main Mobile Unit Edit
Team Head - Lieutenant Barney Funf
Team Tail - Lieutenant Miles Prower
Team Size - 29
Team Summary - The best of the best. Being put on Alpha Team means that you know what you're doing. If you need to completely reconstruct a whole deck, or something of that nature, these are the guys to use.

Beta Team: Secondary Mobile Unit Edit
Team Head - Lieutenant Loza Sechs
Team Tail - Lieutenant Norton
Team Size - 37
Team Summary - If you're on this team, then you're good, but there's better. Beta Team and Alpha Team usually compete with each other. So far, the competition has been light-hearted, with minor adjusting of the other team's sonic showers.

Charlie Team: Engineering Shops Edit
Team Head - Lieutenant Junior Grade Eureka Sieben
Team Tail - Ensign Yugov Karponi
Team Size - 42
Team Summary - This team consists of newbie engineers and specialists who like working down in the Engineering Shops.

Delta Team: Exterior Maintenance / Cargo Bay Edit
Team Head - Lieutenant Hikari Neun (he replaced the late Lt. William Acht)
Team Tail - Lieutenant Junior Grade Mizuho Altimaria
Team Size - 20
Team Summary - Delta Team is the team that works mostly on the outside of the ship. Like any other special team, they're fully capable to do the normal engineering work.

Zed Team: Engineers in Training Edit
Team Head - Ensign Yunyan Zen
Team Tail - Ensign Bill Fences
Team Size - 47
Team Summary - These guys's skills need some smoothing up, so they mostly work the Engineering consoles, subdepartments, etc.
Team Post - Various Engineering Consoles and departments throughout the ship
Gamma Team: Flight Deck Edit
Team Head - Lieutenant Junior Grade Falco Fogarty
Team Tail - Ensign Peppy Potter
Team Size - 14
Team Summary - These guys work the Shuttle deck, shuttle shops, and the fighters/fighter deck. They're trained to pilot them, too.
Team Post - Shuttledeck
Niner Team: Hazard Team Edit
Team Head - Lieutenant Heath Plainson
Team Tail - Lieutenant Junior Grade Daphne Sun
Team Size - 8
Team Summary - Niner Team really isn't a team at all. It's made up of volunteers from the other teams. Niner Team is also known as the Hazard Team. Got an important console that needs to get fixed that's stuck behind a pool of acidic liquids emitting technobabble rays? No volunteers? That's what these guys are for.
Umlaut Team: Information Technology Edit
Team Head - Ensign Penny
Team Tail - Lieutenant Junior Grade Trovolds
Team Size - 10
Team Summary - Located in two of the datacenters on the Lexington, Umlaut Team is in charge of the operating system and various programs used by the USS Lexington. Generally, computer operations are a general engineering task; however, the USS Lexington-C has an experimental fork of the StarFleet operating system, LCARShare. Due to the experimental nature of the OS, and the lack of general applications, the Lex has a specific team dedicated to software engineering and computer tasks.
Ensign Penny is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the team, under the supervision of LtJG Trovolds.
Ensign Null: Ship klutz Edit
Team Head - Ensign Mal Adroi Null
Team Tail - Ensign Mal Adroi Null
Team Size - 0
Team Post - Anywhere non-vital
