When the Enterprise encountered a form of polywater intoxication, Shimoda, under the influence of the intoxication (aka Drunk Shimoda), almost caused the starship to be destroyed by removing the isolinear chips (playing what is commonly refered to as isolinear chip jenga) that controlled the warp drive. However, the chips were soon replaced by Lieutenant Commander Data, thereby restoring warp power. (TNG: "The Naked Now")
One can only assume that Jim Shimoda was assigned to the lesser starship the Hood after his infamous "isolinear chip jenga" debacle. One can also assume that Shimoda was the life of the party while serving on board the Hood.
