Starship captain list


For geeks and nerds, artists, writers, philosophers, politicians and scientists alike: the creation of new worlds and new universes has been a key element of science fiction and fantasy. It can also exist outside the realm of scifi-literature and RPG-gaming as a means of exploring possibilities.

So I stumbled upon the awesome ship + crew generator by /u/MercuryVII (check it out here if you haven't already). However, the roles of each crew member are unclear, and some of the departments don't make much sense. I love making lists of things and just happen to have some free time, so I decided to make my own version of what a fully manned spaceship would be like. This list would focus on more on the organization structure as well as the roles of each department and crew member. Enjoy and feedback are welcome!

(I know the descriptions are incomplete. I did not save my file and lost much of my progress... Too tired to retype all that again. Promise I will update this later. Maybe you guys can help me out!)

Career Ship's Sergeant Charles Zim was Juan Rico 's Drill Instructor during his Basic Training for the Mobile Infantry at Camp Arthur Currie .

After a training incident that lead to the flogging of a recruit private, Theodore C. Hendrick , because of (then) Sergeant Zim's mistake he requested transfer to a combat unit, which was denied by Captain Ian Frankel , Second Battalion, Third Regiment-Training.

Eventually, Sergeant Zim found his way back into a combat command. He was promoted to Fleet Sergeant for " Blackie's Blackguards ", Company D in the Third Regiment of the First Division that was commanded by Captain Blackstone . Company D was part of a "rump" battalion that consisted of two companies, C and D., Captain Blackstone and Fleet Sergeant Zim were in charge of both Company D and the rump battalion.

Fleet Sergeant Zim voluntarily dropped in position (but not rank) to command First Platoon of the Blackguards along with Temporary Third Lieutenant Juan Rico during Rico's final examination, known as the "apprentice cruise", of Officer Candidate School . It was during this time that Fleet Sergeant Zim captured a Brain Bug during Operation Royalty on Planet P . Because of his actions, Fleet Sergeant Zim was promoted to a permanent rank of First Lieutenant then brevetted (title but not the pay) to Captain.

Enterprise or USS Enterprise (often referred to as the " Starship Enterprise ") is the name of several fictional spacecraft , some of which are the main craft and setting for various television series and films in the Star Trek science fiction franchise.

According to The Star Trek Encyclopedia , the registry number NCC-1701 was devised by Matt Jefferies , art director of the first Star Trek series, inspired by an old science fiction cover that Gene Roddenberry liked, with a starship flying through space. [ citation needed ] Jefferies, who was a pilot, based NCC on 20th century aircraft registration codes. In such 20th century usage, an "N" first letter refers to an aircraft registered in the United States. A "C" for a second letter refers to a civil aircraft. Jefferies added a second "C" because he thought it looked better. [1]

The Franz Joseph Blueprints , the book The Making of Star Trek , and a handful of Star Trek novels state that NCC is an initialism for "Naval Construction Contract".

In an interview with the BBC, Jefferies explained that NC is the designation for U.S. commercial aircraft and the Soviet Union 's space program used the CCCP designation. He concluded that any major future space projects would likely be a combined international effort, thus he invented the combined designation NCC. The 1701 had two functions, it represented the first (01) ship of a 17th federation cruiser design, and that the digits were unlikely to be misread, unlike 6, 8, or 9. [2]

In Gene Roddenberry's original Star Trek pitch, the starship is described as a "United Space Ship", and in two episodes of The Original Series (TOS), Kirk refers to the "United Space Ship Enterprise ".

Before Star Trek: The Motion Picture , Paramount had planned a Star Trek film to have been named Star Trek: Planet of the Titans . Early in the production, Ralph McQuarrie had been hired to redesign the ship. The major feature of the redesign was to replace the cigar-shaped secondary hull with a larger, triangle-shaped " delta wing " section. McQuarrie's design was discarded in favor of keeping the general shape of the ship intact for the release of Star Trek: The Motion Picture .

Starfleet flag officers sometimes retain or take command of a vessel. Most often, these officers hold the rank of commodore , but there have been instances of admirals operating as starship captains.

The substantive rank of captain is typically held by officers captaining starships. Officers of this rank also sometimes serve in other capacities, such as in command of starbases or divisions of support personnel (such as JAG officers or members of the Starfleet Corps of Engineers ), or as members of experimental engineering programs.

According to the rules of naval parlance, a person of any officer rank may be addressed as captain if they are assigned as sole commanding officer of any starship. Captains may also be awarded provisional (brevet) ranks or field promotions to be accorded the title of captain.

Jonathan Archer (NX-01), Robert April, Christopher Pike, James T. Kirk, Spock, Kirk(Enterprise-A), John Harriman, Jr. (Enterprise-B), Rachel Garrett (Enterprise-C), Jean-Luc Picard (Enterprise-D and Enterprise-E)

Starfleet also formally (i.e. with a change-of-command ceremony) assigned Edward Jellico the captain of Enterprise-D during the events of the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Chain of Command".

Starfleet Admiral Hanson also field promoted William T. Riker to captain and formalized his command of the Enterprise-D during the events of "The Best of Both Worlds".
