Re: Is there a need for a Helm Department?

In my fanfic, I always have it that the Flight Control Department covers the bridge officer (as well as their relief/cover), the hangar supervisor, shuttle pilots, hangar/shuttle maintenance techs, as well as specialists attached to the navigational systems (such as VOY's elusive 'astrogation plotter') and deflector. It's never a huge department, but it at least adds a few more redshirts to the crew.
