Vice-Branch Commander Found

CMDR Izzy Kessel (Izzy Baum) has accepted the position of vice head of UFS Security. Izzy has a long history in UFS including a previos stint as vice-head as well as a term as Branch Commander. Her experience and dedication will further enable Security Branch to be the best branch in the fleet.

Please join me in giving Izzy a hearty, "Welcome Aboard."

Any questions concerning Security Branch can be asked of her as well as me. Also, with Izzy's arrival, I hope to give some additions to the newsletter including some features.




I. Helpful reminders

Chain of Command

Often in our desire to share our enthusiasm we forget the little things. I mentioned last week the importance of going through proper channels when submitting RP stories and arcs, but this week's reminder is for those times in RP when we forget the positions of those around us. For example, when a superior officer from another command is present on your ship or station during a mission, it is proper protocol to treat the officer as a superior. Unless that individual is playing a NPC and has no rank, then that officer's rank needs to be acknowledged.

Much of this can be remedied by paying attention to mission briefings and asking appropriate questions. Let's take a hypothetical example:

Captain A is visiting the USS Neversail, either on a fact-finding mission, personal visit, inspection etc., and the ship is attacked. Lt. X, a security officer who may not hold a leadership position, begins telling Captain A what to do, where to go, and whom to shoot. This is a violation of protocol and courtesy. It is much different if Captain A asks The USS Neversail's CO how he can be of help, or even asks LT X for advice since, undoubtedly, LT X will know his ship better, but LT X is not in a position to bark orders.

I am reminded of Admiral Kirk taking command of the Enterprise in TMP. There have been no instances where junior officers reversed the process.

In short, pay attention to the briefing. Clarify what the chain of command is. Few visiting officers will presume to take charge unless they are an integral part of the mission or have prior knowledge of the situation and the foe. If this is the case, then welcome the outside assistance, and ALWAYS ask questions.
