OK, I'm working on it.

First question: is this Star Trek or Battlestar Galactica? Do the bridge officers do the hands-on work (ST) or do they delegate and stay behind the lines (BSG)?

st or bsg
hadn't really thought of it that way.

pilots and navigators are officers. chief engineer typically is back in engineering but will have a station on the bridge. the gunnery officer is on the bridge and can control weapons but typically will pass that over to the more experienced enlisted men. the flight officer merely is in charge of the bridge - the pilots, navigators, and enlisted personnel who maintain sensors, comms, and computers.

an officer's primary job is to make sure things get done and report to the captain. it's the enlisted men that do the work.

my plans are firming up. before I lock it down is there something in particular you'd like to see in the game?

vegas August 30th, 2019 04:10 PM

Go ahead and lock away. I'll follow your lead.

One comment - the closest I've gotten to the military is Avalon Hill, Traveller, and the internet, so excuse my ignorance as I play at captain.
