USS Omaha

Departments & Positions

  • Command (USS Omaha Crew)

    The command department contains the ship's command triad, consisting of the Captain, Executive Officer, and Command Master Chief, along with the administrative support personnel that are common to the entire ship. This size and nature of this staff varies wildly with the size of the ship, but it commonly includes the yeomen, personnel specialists, public affairs and mass media specialists, and on the largest ships finance and legal officers.

  • Flight Control (USS Omaha Crew)

    Flight Control is responsible for the navigation of the ship and its small craft. It is one of the smallest departments, typically just two or three officers plus enlisted assistants, and for this reason the department head is often a relatively junior officer.

    The Navigation Division is responsible for flying the ship and for updating charts as the ship conducts mapping missions, with either a flight control officer or enlisted quartermaster on the bridge at all times.

    The Deck Division is responsible for operation of the shuttle bays, maintenance of small craft, and all extravehicular activities.

  • Engineering (USS Omaha Crew)

    The Engineering Department maintains and repairs the ship itself, along with most permanently attached equipment except the weapons. While the ship is highly automated, this is still manpower-intensive as many systems require at least one person monitoring at all times. There is always an engineering officer of the watch, with the responsibility rotating between division officers. Engineering is primarily focused on systems that are permanent fixtures of the ship.

    Warp Systems - Operation of the ship's main reactor and warp drive.
    Impulse Systems - Operation of impulse engines and thrusters.
    Power Systems - Operation of the power grid and batteries.
    Environmental Systems - Operation of life support, including inertial dampening and gravity.
    Structure - Maintenance of the ship's structure.
