Special Services (Sky Blue)
The Special Services team are drawn from all departments of the USS Stargazer, with some (enthusiastic) crew members providing support to four or more divisions. Many of our crew members are fully qualified medical staff and each of us has to pass an exhaustive medical every six months. We are also put through our paces by the Chief of Security on the firing range and in hand to hand combat.
In addition to serving on the Hazard Team or being able to supplement the Medical department, the Special Services crew are those dedicated crew members who support and administer to the crews visitors and indeed the crew themselves.
The USS Stargazer has a full complement of 450 crew members of which there are some 150 Officers and 300 Enlisted Crew. In addition to the crew, we may be transporting up to 130 visiting scientists, diplomats and civilians.
