Officer Ensign (01) through to Commander (05)

INTRODUCTION

Crew members of the USS Stargazer are each assigned a rank which reflects that member’s contribution to the Chapter, the Region and STARFLEET International.

Crew members are able to earn rank promotions through a system of required and elective requirements: meet the correct number of requirements, and you have earned your promotion.

Commissioned Rank Progression

Promotions up to the grade of 01- 05 (Commander) are approved by the Commanding Officer.

Promotions from the grade of  06 (Captain) are approved by the RC for Region 20.

Promotions from the grade of 07 (Fleet Captain) are approved by the Admiralty Board.

TRACKING

It’s the responsibility of the individual crew member to keep track of the requirements he/she has met, as well as the necessary supporting documentation. When you’ve earned your promotion, bring it to the attention of your department Chief.  In most cases this will be your either your Department Chief or the First Officer.  They will discuss your promotion request and if approved will then forward the request along with their recommendations to the Commanding Officer, who will either grant or reject your promotion at that time.

PROCEDURE

When you believe you’ve fulfilled the requirements for a promotion, please follow the following path of contact (the Chain of Command)

Your Department Head or Chief >> First Officer >> Commanding Officer

Never go directly to the Commanding Officer to request your promotion, please follow the “Chain of Command”.

REJECTED PROMOTION REQUESTS

If your rank promotion is rejected for some reason, you may appeal the decision with the Commanding Officer. Having a rejected rank promotion will not prevent you from making successful requests in the future.

DEMOTIONS

Demotions are not taken lightly, the Command Staff has never demoted a member…..yet.

If a crew member were to violate STARFLEET’s Rules and Regulations as set out in the Members Handbook, or the laws of your of where you reside then the Command Staff and the member’s Department Chief would hold a meeting with the member to discuss the violation.
