What all those jobs DO!

Command

Commanding Officer

Every Starfleet Facility has a single commanding officer responsible for the safety of his/her crew and the success of their missions. S/he has final accountability for any actions taken by his/her crew, and Starfleet goes to great lengths to prepare a CO for the job ahead, including the interpretation and execution of Starfleet rules and regulations.

Executive Officer

Besides leading a facility when the CO is unable to, the XO often assists the CO and serves as liaison with the crew. S/he oversees a ship or base's day-to-day operations and advises the CO on important matters.

Second Officer

At times the XO must assume command of a Starship or base, when this happens the XO needs the help of another officer to assume his/her role as XO. The second officer is not a stand alone position, but a role given to the highest ranked and trusted officer aboard. When required the Second Officer will assume the role of XO, or if needed CO, and performs there duties as listed, for as long as required.

Chief of the Boat/Command Chief (NCO)

Like the 2nd Officer title above, this is not a stand alone position. The seniormost Chief Petty Officer (including Senior and Master Chiefs), regardless of rating, is designated by the Commanding Officer as the Chief of the Boat (for vessels) or Command Chief (for starbases). In addition to his or her departmental responsibilities, the COB/CC performs the following duties: serves as a liaison between the Commanding Officer (or Executive Officer) and the enlisted crewmen; ensures enlisted crews understand Command policies; advises the Commanding Officer and Executive Officer regarding enlisted morale, and evaluates the quality of noncommissioned officer leadership, management, and supervisory training.

The COB/CC works with the other department heads, Chiefs, supervisors, and crewmen to ensure discipline is equitably maintained, and the welfare, morale, and health needs of the enlisted personnel are met. The COB/CC is qualified to temporarily act as Commanding or Executive Officer if so ordered.

A Senior Chief Petty Officer may be called a Senior Chief of the Boat (SCOB) or Command Senior Chief (CSC). A Master Chief Petty Officer may be called a Master Chief of the Boat (MCOB) or Command Master Chief (CMC).

Quartermaster (NCO)

The Quartermaster, the senior most Master Chief Petty Officer of a ship or starbase, trains and supervises crewmen in Bridge operations, repairs, and protocols and sets the agenda for instruction in general ship and starbase operations for the Boatswain's Mate; maintains the ship's log, the ship's clock, and watch and duty assignments for all Bridge personnel; may assume any Bridge (i.e. CONN) or Operations role (i.e. transporter) as required; and is qualified to temporarily act as Commanding or Executive Officer if so ordered. Quartermasters ensure that all officers and crew perform their duties consistent with Starfleet directives. The Quartermaster reports to the Executive Officer. Quartermasters for vessels are called Chiefs of the Boat (COB); Quartermasters for starbases are called Command Master Chiefs; Quartermasters at the Task Force level are called Force Master Chiefs (FMCs); the Quartermaster of Argus Fleet is called the Fleet Master Chief (FMC); the Master Chief Petty Officer of Starfleet (MCPOS) is the highest Quartermaster appointment and serves as an aide to the Admiral of Starfleet.

Captain's Yeoman (NCO)

The Captain's Yeoman is for Petty Officers who wish to continue as administrators. It is technically a non-Mate position. Use of this position is completely at the discretion of the Commanding Officer. File work, and sensitive message transport are but two examples of the Yeoman's possible duties.

Tactical

The Chief tactical Officer should be aware of current Diplomatic situations and up to date on the latest technological capabilities of all threat alien races, and even the capabilities of allied alien species. There is much more to tactical than simply overseeing the weapons console on the bridge. Tactical maintains the weapons systems aboard the ship/starbase, maintaining and reloading photons magazines. Tactical planning and current Intelligence analysis (if no Intelligence operatives are aboard) is also overseen by the tactical department. On some vessels the Chief of Security is also the Department head of Tactical. If s/he is, all Tactical personnel fall into the Security Department.

Deputy of Tactical

The Assistant Tactical Officer is called Deputy of Tactical. S/he assists the Chief Tactical Officer in the daily work; in issues regarding tactical and any administrative matters. There is much more to tactical than simply overseeing the weapons console on the bridge. Tactical maintains the weapons systems aboard the ship/starbase, maintaining and reloading photons magazines.

As and if required the Deputy must be able to take command of the Tactical department.

Tactical Officer

The Tactical Officers are the vessels gunmen.

On almost every Starfleet vessel and base, there is some kind of recreational area. A place where all members of the crew can relax and enjoy, a place to forget the rigours of the day.The Bar/Lounge Manger runs such establishments for the crew.

Bartender

A ship/facility is operational 24 hours a day, and thus people are on duty around the clock, each having there free time at different times, but the recreational areas must stay open to accommodate these people. A Bar/Lounge Manager could not keep going 24 hours every day, and thus requires staff to assist him/her.

Waiter/Waitress

Every bar, every restaurant needs some form of friendly service to help the crew relax. A warm smile who brings your food or drinks, to chat when somebody is alone or down. the Water/Waitress are theses people.

School Teacher

In the modern 24th century, many children are taught by computer holograms. However real interaction with a living person is still valued. A computer can only teach so much. The teachers responsibilities is the education of the children aboard the ship/facility.

Additionally the teacher may be able to provide assistance in his/her field of speciality when required.
