What is a Technical Wingman?

A Technical Wingman is basically “Scotty” in Star Trek.   Tasked with keeping the ship operational when the pressure is on!  Depending on the scope of the production,  it could be a canoe or huge oil tanker…  but hopefully never the Titanic (oh that’s so lame…wah wah!)
