Command - The Command Department contains the offices of administration for the chapter. These offices operate under the supervision of the Second Officer, with the XO serving as manager of the department. The Command Department is also comprised of the administrative officers listed below. This department is charged with the overall smooth operation of the chapter.
Operations - The Chief of Operations, or OPS, is the person with whom new members should have the most contact during their first days aboard. Ops are responsible for the Orientation of new members, and Strategic Operations are responsible for the retention of all members. Together, these two positions make up our recruiting tools.
Computer Operations - The Chief of Computer Operations is the primary person responsible for the design and maintenance of our website, including posting announcements, birthdays, and of course the newsletter. Additionally, COMPOPS maintains all command networks and computer systems and assists crew members with any issues pertaining to computer technology.
Security - The main goal of the Security Department is to maintain the ship's security systems, tactical systems, and offensive/defensive measures. The Chief of Security and Tactics are responsible for keeping the Command Department up to date on all foreign weaponry, including new technology of enemy species, weapon overhauls, and maintenance. During away missions, regulations state there will be one security officer for every Command Line Officer sent into a dangerous mission. Security officers are also called upon during delegations to act as body guards for visiting dignitaries, including other races. Security and Tactics are also assisted by these positions listed below.
Science - Purpose- The real world aspect of the Chief of Sciences is to keep the crew updated on specific charities within their areas, and if any one participates in a charity, that person sends their information into the Chief of Science who then includes it in his/her reports. The Science Department is charged with researching all things Scientific, from spatial anomalies to space-time vortices, from planetary to physical, anatomical to zoological, this is the department that has all of the answers. The department is assisted with the offices listed below.
Engineering - Engineering keeps the ship flying. They are responsible for the engines (warp and impulse), life support, systems relays, power grids, shields, and everything else which keeps this vessel operative. In real life, Engineering is charges with the fabrication of props when we visit a Regional or Fleet Event. Engineering is assisted by these offices below.
Communications - Communications, or COMM, is responsible for making our presence known to other vessels by online communications, newsletters, chat groups, and whatever other method is readily available. Communications also designs our handbooks, promotion certificates, and other paraphernalia distributed to our members. The COMM department is supported by these offices listed below.
Medical - The purpose of the Medical Department aboard the ship is two fold. Aspect number one; they are the care givers to all personnel assigned to the ship, whether Naval or Marine. The care they give is the absolute best for every group. Aspect number two; they also operate on the field, and usually not to far away from the area of combat. The entire organization is rather large, and is led by the Chief of Medical Operations. On a vessel this large with this many Marines and Naval Personnel, the Chief Medical Officer title has been done away with and replaced with this. It seems that the Chief of Medical Operations will be mainly an administrator, doing duty rosters, assigning medivac teams, setting up field hospitals and Mobile Surgical Hospitals, as well as overseeing the day to day operations of the Medical Department. It has been deemed necessary, again due to the large complement of SFMC personnel, that the Chief of Medical Operations also have a primary Marine Occupational Specialty (MOS) of 280, or that of a Medical Commander. The Associate Chief of Medical Operations must have a Primary MOS of 255, or Surgeon, and a secondary of 236, or Medical Administrator. The diagram for the medical department also closely resembles that of a Marine unit. This is much simpler and less time consuming for everyone involved.
