You're responsible for the engines, power, and all other maintenance aboard the Theseus, and report directly to the Chief Ship Engineer and RO or Captain\ranking officer if the CSE/RO isn't around.
Playing the Ship Technician
The Ship Technitians biggest role is to make sure the ships engine has fuel so the electricty can keep running... that's it really, and it's something almost anyone can do, plus the engines start off in pretty good shape, and plenty of fuel is around, so it's not that important in the grand scheme of things (unless your round lasts for a long time.) Your other important role on the ship is to load the Orbital Cannon. You should also man the requisitions line where you will fulfill the orders of the marines. Other than that, you can assist in FOB construction or be a janitor.
You also have one of the highest skills in power loaders, so if you want to help the pilots out by loading up their drop ships with attachments while they do something else, feel free.
If you decide that you would rather kill yourself than stay on this ship any longer, then perhaps think about asking command if you can catch the next dropship planetside. Command or your CSE might have already asked you to do this anyway. Gather some fighting gear (Grabbing gear from req and from the surplus vendors would be easiest) and some construction supplies and tools, and head to the planet. You can assist in bulding, maintaining, and defending the FOB, or possibly return power to the colony, and fix APC's along the way so your fellow marines can see what the fuck they are actually doing and who they are shooting at. Or fail miserably, and become a surrogate mother for a new xeno baby.
The only time you will ever see any action on the ship is if the Xenomorphs hijack the dropship, and board the Theseus. In the event of such an event, your role becomes somewhat more important, as you can now build barricades and defenses wherever command tells you too (usually the Self-destruct or the CIC). Try not to be an idiot with your cades and set up any turrets you're able to get ahold of to help the marines hold out as long as they can.
