Precis: Patch is a naturally gifted mechanic, and thoroughly enjoys building and fixing the components that make up a starship. She has always had a deep and abiding fascination with space travel and obsession with ships and ship components. Growing up on the Imperial-governed world of Jurio, her dream was to be a pilot in the Imperial Navy. She failed out of flight school after crashing too many training craft, but rather than cashier her, her squadron commander recognized her talent for fixing up the birds she had just wrecked and sent her to technician school. From a purely technical perspective, she was top of her class. However, her complete lack of understanding of (or disdain for) etiquette and protocol, and negative reviews from jilted superior officers has held back any advancement in the Imperial Navy. Now she finds herself planet-bound on Dromund Kaas, maintaining refueling spires and other logistical supports for the ships she desperately wants to join.

Starship Systems and Maintenance Technicians operate and maintain highly technical propulsion, mechanical and power generation systems, enabling Imperial Navy warships to move and fight. The primary responsibilities of Starship Technicians are to operate all starship systems engineering equipment onboard ship, troubleshoot failures, advise command on limitations and repair as required to restore system function. They execute and track maintenance schedules to keep the ship’s engineering equipment in prime condition. They respond to emergencies as the onboard experts in firefighting and damage control, including starfighter and shuttlecraft crash rescue. They are the ship’s metal workers and carry out burning, welding and machining.
Command relies on the starship Technician’s in-depth knowledge of the following systems:
• Propulsion powerplant, hyperdrive systems, sublight engines and associated systems, including gearing and shafting
• Generators and power distribution systems, including casualty power
• Machinery control systems
• Fitted and portable damage control and firefighting equipment
• Life support, internal atmosphere conditioning and ventilation equipment
• Hyperfuel and other volatile gas and liquid management systems
OOC: Looking for a few Imperial and Sith contacts for one-shot/slice of life style RP scenes, that could maybe grow into a longer-term assignment.
