Galaxy class bridge conn ops

Ops (left) and Conn (right) positions aboard a Template:ShipClass starship.

The flight controller (also known as conn, conn officer, or astrogation plotter) is the crew member on a Federation starship assigned the duty of piloting the vessel. This position combines the roles of the navigator and helmsman used in the past. (Star Trek: The Next Generation)

In 2371, the USS Voyager lost its astrogation plotter when the ship was brought to the Delta Quadrant by the Caretaker. A replacement was required when the ship began its course back to the Alpha Quadrant. (VOY: "Parallax")
