The flow sensor was a technological component on Federation starships used for sensing flow in a warp field. Engineers aboard these starships had access to technical manuals for these sensors, which were stored in the Engineering Systems Database. In the 23rd century, Chief Engineer Montgomery Scott wrote the standardized operating protocol for these sensors. A copy of this protocol was stored in the database of the Galaxy-class USS Enterprise. On the Galaxy-class starships, there were flow sensors suites for the port and starboard. An engineer could monitor and control these sensors from the Engineering station on the main bridge of the ship. (TNG: "Booby Trap", "The Defector", display graphics)
