Science Handbook

Created by Captain Rohana O'Touvelli on Wed Nov 28th, 2012 @ 2:38pm

Without science the Federation wouldn't have the means to back up their pioneering spirit. The great unknown, the massive leaps in medicine, technology and culture would be completely lost without the sharp minds parsing the information into usable bits to be brought home and recreated. Onboard ship science has its hands in every department, supplying them with key information, research and findings. They are interpreters and guesstimators whose words could end the lives of all those surrounding them if they guess wrong. Dealing much in the realm of the unknown and hypotheticals, they are the magicians that make concrete reality out of a few base tries and some litmus paper.

General Duties
