The Lone Star is recruiting!

Posted on Fri Jan 18th, 2019 @ 7:38am by Captain Felix de l'Isle

We're about a week or two out from testing the Lone Star's new slipstream drive and we can't wait to see what the outer reaches of the galaxy have in store for us! That said, we're a few crew members off our optimum complement. Here's a list of our open positions and an idea of the types of character that would suit them.

NB: We love our Omega Fleet pals, but at present we are looking for non-fleet simmers to bolster our ranks. We'll let you know when this changes. Thank you!

As the most senior enlisted crew member the Chief of the Boat, or CoB, directs all other non-commissioned personnel on board. Each department has its crewmen who manage functions and services as various as the armory, Arboretum, catering, waste, maintenance, cargo handling and the shuttlebays – and each of them reports to the CoB. Often this NCO is long in the tooth and somewhat intimidating, for whatever reason – even to some commissioned officers.

Chief of Communications
The Lone Star’s slipstream drive is set to take her to entirely new parts of space, where encountering new cultures and civilisations will be par for the course. With a gift for both xenolinguistics and cryptology, this bridge officer will also be responsible for maintaining contact with Starfleet Command, transmitting reports and receiving any coded orders.

The ship’s counsellor is responsible for the psychological wellbeing of the crew but also serves as an advisor to the CO in situations including first contact, diplomacy and social engagements. Although an empath would suit the role, its holder could equally have a unique interpersonal ability, or is the kind who can read others in some other way.

Chief of Operations
Operations is sometimes called the human side of engineering: the software to the latter’s hardware. But the chief of ops also handles logistics, deployment, usage of the ship’s systems and the allocation of resource, generally under the direction of the XO. With the Lone Star’s unique formulation, including its mission modules, and long-range mission profile, a rapid mind is essential for this bridge officer.

See you out there!
