Head Nurse

A Head Nurse has usually served as a Nurse on board a ship/station for a number of years, or has had extensive experience within the medical field, or in managing other nurses.

Emergency Medical Hologram

NPC ONLY The Emergency Medical Hologram is a component of the computer system on board the ship/station. The EMH was originally designed by Dr. Lewis Zimmerman, and the program bears a lot of his own personality traits. It may activate on command from any Starfleet officer, or activates automatically during a Red Alert. Once the personality expands enough, it may be granted autonomous control over its own functions, and can leave the ship/station through the use of a mobile holographic emitter.
