Main engineering boasts the largest electrical dynamos on the ship but each deck and section of the ship should incorporate multiple electrical generation devices. Electricity is used to power personal devices or small compact systems. Many control systems may have an electrical backup to the mechanical main system. Use of electricity is relatively simple to use when compared to the other power systems but when applied to larger jobs it becomes unmanageable, dangerous and inefficient.
Many electrical devices are actually powered with Veridigen power packs as veridigen can store a much greater power potential than any electrical storage battery. The ships electrical network is designed in such a way as to be able to route power around any damaged system or area of damage. Therefore most emergency and damage control devices are designed to work on electrical power.
