Operations Handbook

Created by Captain Rohana O'Touvelli on Wed Nov 28th, 2012 @ 2:32pm

Everything from flying the ship to sensor technicians, communications, deck chiefs and yeomans all belong to the prestigious operations department. If engineering is the muscle and bone of a ship, then operations are the blood, brains and nervous system. They have their fingers in every system, their code dancing through every terminal. Without their direction the fantastic machines put out by Federation shipyards would be nothing more than a flotilla of unresponsive paperweights. They are the merchants of information- both incoming and outgoing- in regards to every single facet of the ship and its workings.

*On smaller ships operations can encompass engineering as well to become Shipworks with its ranking officers acting as specialists.
