1. Is there a room number for the Romulan command officers or do I make it up?

2. Are Sienae and S'Talon going to be in the same room.

3. Where is sickbay from the room?

4. Where is the officer's lounge?

All right, folks! I'm about to go full fledged geek here.

I've done all major projects and just have a refinance to handle as well as a minor art piece, so I'm as open as I'll ever be to get things going for the Charon as well as Medical on board the Cerberus. I'll work on the posts for both and get them in place ASAP.

Marinnes have landed

Sould the marines and their NCO Master Sgt already be on board. Especially since Valberg just called for the Marines to Transporter room two--for the Romulans and and the MACO Captain is not coming on board until DS9. I could jump right in here if we were on board already. with Rhiannon and four others.

Trying this again..

Now Eol or Olan can correct me if I'm wrong... But... While on board the Cerberus the marines do technically fall under TAC/SEC jurisdiction, however, the Marines are an individual specialized elite unit. While everyday affairs are handled by the 'pups in yellow' as Valberg calls em, the marines even being employed on the Cerberus lends credit that this ship is meant for deep infiltration / combat. which means you guys are the pick of the litter for away missions etc.

Valberg calling orders for armed escorts doesn't actually include the marines, though he'd far from shun their arrival, even if only to bolster the 'we have to have you but we don't have to like/trust you' feel the ship has in general.

Once I have a accounted for Security member count, (and the full marine detachment comming on board) I can work out shifts, details, and perhaps some cross combat training where the marines can help ship shape the 'wet eared Security pups'. Valberg's almost 40, a war vet and declarated soldier, so he'd have no issues with trying to see what the younger generation has them going all Hooah about.

Eol's department breakdown shows 40 personnel designated as security/tactical.

My thought on this was something like the following:

CTO: Lt. Commander Rrowl
aCTO: Lt/Lt(jg) NPC
TO: Ensign (NPC)
TO: Ensign (NPC)

SEC: Lt. Valberg
aSEC: Lt(jg) NPC
SO: Ensign (NPC)
SO: Ensign (NPC)

And the rest as enlisteds... maybe ten of then dedicated tactical, the other 22 as dedicated security.

This is loosey-goosey right now; for instance, there is probably room to wriggle in one more ltjg or ensign for either department. The one thing I see is that this puts us kinda short on manpower, if you look at it closely - 40 SEC/TAC out of 1000 seems slim. It may not be possible to follow Rrowl's order about double watches if this is all the personnel we have... there would hardly be enough bodies to stand watch, even if they did so constantly. Start considering 8 hour shifts, and we get very short.

Oooooooh... questions!

Hooray! It’s Question and Answer time!!! Gather round kiddies! Everyone got your cookies and milk? Phasers set to stun? Good, let’s begin shall we?

Q:What's the total staff under Security on the Cerberus... if I can get a number I'll get fancy and whip up a full roster and detail outline for our... guests

A: My original estimation of TAC/SEC’s crew compliment was, as Olan stated, around 40… Of course, I had 16 folks in Intel (which I think is a bit much, now, and have since pared that dept down to a max of 6) and a generous 8 slots given over to Diplomatic Corps (that’s pared down, too)… anyway, I based my original numbers on an “average crew compliment” then divvied it all up by percentages so 40 is not set in stone.

Here are my thoughts… TAC has 6 officers (CTO, aCTO, TO (x4)) and 14 enlisted – so 20 crew designated TAC. SEC has 4 (?) officers (CSEC, aSEC, SEC (x2)) and 32 enlisted, giving us a total of 36 SEC dedicated crew. As a whole, that’s 56 bodies in TAC/SEC plus TAC can pull from Intel and SEC can pull from the MACO troops where necessary. Yes, MACO, essentially have their own mission parameters and fall under the command of their own CO, but, they don’t ‘ride for free’… a lazing marine is a worthless marine, right?... so, if you’re a MACO grunt and you’re not training, on liberty, or otherwise officially engaged in productive activity, you’ve got duties aboard the ship, as well… typically Security detail.

Q:How long after Operation Return is this taking place?

A: Right around 6 months or so, I think… Betazed was overrun less than two weeks ago, game time.

Q: Is there a room number for the Romulan command officers or do I make it up?

A:Probably, but it’s not a major element…Romulan Officers will be in the “Guest Quarters” on Deck 3… room number format will probably be something like “03 010” (Deck 3 Room 10)

Q: Are Sienae and S'Talon going to be in the same room?

A: Only if they want to be … each will have their own room… junior officers might have “room mates”, NCOs typically share quarters, and enlisteds are more or less required to do so.

Q: Where is sickbay from the room?

A: Sickbay is on Deck 4… there are “aid stations” throughout the ship

Q: Where is the officer's lounge?
A: Only one Lounge… on deck 5… all ranks allowed

Q: Should the marines and their NCO Master Sgt already be on board?
A: Not necessarily at this point… although Sgt Taggart and the Alpha Squad portion of your platoon has arrived, even they didn’t show up until after the Roms did (Roms came on board around 10… Alpha squad showed up @ 1345 (1:45 pm))… Technically, the Marines don’t have to report until 0900 “tomorrow”.

I think that covers most everything… If I missed something or anyone wants to haggle, just lemme know.

Makes me feel better to have more exact numbers... for some reson, I was thining the crew was a good bit larger. Now, I see that she holds a complement of 228 overall (40 officers, 188 enlisteds).

Crew compliments...

Yep... a Steamrunner's average sized crew is 228 and a Saber typically runs with right around 60.

Now, I read somewhere that in rescue/evac situations a Steamrunner could support a full crew plus 2000-2500 'evacuees' given conversion of shuttle and cargo bays, etc... I don't expect we'll get anywhere near a full evac load, though

Great start!

looking good, Dev.

FYI I had the Science Dept aboard Cerberus figured to be in the neighborhood of 16 crew... Smallish department, really, but will likely have plenty to do... anyway, with the roster you've proposed, there, you're pretty close to what I had figured.

... that being the case, we've got Alpha Squad only abaord until DS9. Guess that makes Taggart and his Squad the 'bunk nannies'... er... I mean... advance team in charge of squaring away the post.

Make it so, #1.

I can address the "change of plans" or "splitting of the troops" in my next post if you want... wrap it all up in a nice neat little bow.
