Re: 3 engine rooms in the TOS Enterprise's engineering hull?

It also could be that the specific systems Chekov is checking are related to the "autopilot" by indirect means, since, after all, M-5 is trying to misdirect them and Spock is just that much smarter than the computer. Perhaps the "H279 elements" and the "G95 systems" are components of the engines which respond to the helm control? Maybe the G95 system is a sort of throttle assembly that the helm uses to control the reactor output to the actual engine elements.

I'm quite comfortable with the graphic Chekov turns on having everything to do with the reactors and engines.
