From UFStarfleet LCARS
It has been several years since we first set foot on Pinsatri and made it our home. Over the course of those years our colony has grown to include the southern continent a few new space stations and many new species and faces from around the Delta Quadrant. This has taken its toll on the command structure of our fleet. Due to the immense demands that have risen and problems that keep occurring I am announcing a restructure to the Command Structure. Several new posts will be created and have been filled. Following is the outline of the new Delta Quadrant Starfleet Command Structure.
Section1: United Federation Starfleet Command Structure
A. UFS Joint Chiefs of Staff
United Federation Starfleet has become too large to be overseen by just one person. UFS's day-to-day operations are conducted by a group of 5 officers also known as the UFS Joint Chiefs of Staff. Each of these officers have their own sphere of authority in UFS. That means that each of these officers are responsible ONLY for the duties/projects assigned to their office and each will report directly to the Commander in Chief. This was again done to take as many as the hands out of the stew and shorten communications delays
- 1. Commander-in-Chief (Admiral Mike Calhoun)
- 2. Commander UF Starfleet (Commodore Taylorholic Durant)
- 3. UF Starfleet Chief of Staff (Commander Diemme Morane)
- 4. Chief of UF Starfleet Operations (Position vacant)
- 5. Starfleet Academy SuperIntendant (Fleet Captain Zed Drebin)
The UFS Joint Chiefs of Staff are selected from the most qualified and experienced officers in United Federation Starfleet. In the event a vacancy opens up in the UFS Joint Chiefs of Staff, the remaining Joint Chiefs of Staff will select a qualified candidate to fill that position. The Commander-in-Chief will select the candidate, but an unanimous vote from ALL the UFS Joint Chiefs of Staff is needed to ratify the candidate. In the event a vacancy opens up in the UFS Senior Staff, the Joint Chiefs of Staff will appoint a qualified officer to fill that position. The Commander in Chief will select the candidate, but a 2/3 majority vote from ALL the UFS Joint Chiefs of Staff is needed to ratify the candidate.
Any and all United Federation Starfleet Command Operations are decided by means of a Joint Chiefs of Staff Meeting. Each officer can bring their concerns to said meeting for discussion. The Joint Chiefs of staff will discuss each concern. After a decision has been reached, the Commander-in-Chief will then enforce said decision. Preferably these meetings are done over voice
