|The following is based on Van Buren and is not canon.|
Successfully knock out or kill the engineer without alerting Presper and his men was going to be a quest in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios. It was located in B.O.M.B.-001's command center.
If the Prisoner has successfully sneaked past the security bots on the central hub, which in turn does not set off the internal alarms, then they can try to sneak up on the engineer who is busy fiddling with a computer on the southwest side of the engineering room. They must attack with a quiet weapon (unarmed or un-powered melee) and successfully subdue the engineer before he has a chance to run to the alarm on the opposite wall.

- Combat Boy, Diplomacy Boy, Science Boy, Stealth Boy – If they can successfully sneak past the security bots, then this should not pose a problem.
