A damage control team (sometimes called a damage control party, repair crew, repair team or work crew) referred to groups of Federation and Klingon starship crew organized as an adjunct to the ship's engineering staff for use in times of crisis when the ship suffered damage. Their general purpose was to fight fires and/or effect repairs as needed to keep the ship operational.
In 2366, an alternate universe Geordi La Forge coordinated several damage control teams that boarded the crippled USS Enterprise-C, which had been damaged in combat with the Romulans. (TNG: "Yesterday's Enterprise")
Also in 2366, after an attacking Borg cube had caused a hull rupture in main engineering of the USS Enterprise-D, Commander Riker ordered repair teams to seal that breach. (TNG: "The Best of Both Worlds")
On stardate 46154.2, a damage control team and a medical team aboard the USS Enterprise-D were ordered by La Forge to report to Cargo Bay 4 when a massive EPS explosion was detected in the area. (TNG: "Schisms")
When Captain Edward Jellico temporarily took command of the Enterprise-D on stardate 46361, he had the Science I and Science II stations on the bridge changed to Damage Control and Weapons Status. (TNG: "Chain of Command, Part I")
Constable Odo mentioned work crew seven as the team which did the repairs to Quark's damaged holosuites and when the Ferengi tried to trade information about the mission of a Klingon crew which previously visited his bar, Odo told him that he could use work crew seven for minor repairs in his security office. As a result, Quark told Odo what he knew about the Klingon mission. (DS9: "Dramatis Personae")
In the same year, Captain Keogh of the USS Odyssey led a rescue operation and shortly after engaging the Jem'Hadar, he called for the deployment of damage control teams as his vessel took heavy damage, including a plasma leak in the port nacelle. One team was sent to level 7. (DS9: "The Jem'Hadar")
Later that year, repair teams from the Voyager were working on the USS Dauntless, which were ordered to evacuate that vessel by Captain Janeway when Arturis' deception was discovered. (VOY: "Hope and Fear")
