CREW – BY DEPARTMENT

Like any good ship, the crew is the most important component!


Aboard the USS Renaissance, we have a number of departments which you may choose to enroll in : Engineering, Intelligence, Medical, Operations, Science and Security.

You do not need to be an expert in the department you choose. Remember, this is for fun!

Upon assignment to a department, you will have a Chief Officer to whom you report. You can work with your Commanding Officer to determine a field specialty. Initially, you will begin as a Crewman and have the opportunity, if you desire, to move up in rank. Rank progression is based on a points system where you will accumulate points from taking courses in the Academy, or involvement in crew activities – this includes our trivia nights, watch parties and other zoom meetings. We encourage participation in all events hosted aboard the Renaissance for you to fully enjoy the experience of being with our team brings.

We also encourage you to bring your furry, scaly or slimy companions aboard! STARFLEET Petfleet is a recognized group within STARFLEET that allows you to register your pets as crew members.

Successful motions lead to elections for new leadership, followed by a one-week transition period for a smooth transfer of responsibilities. The outgoing leaders ensure the new CO and/or XO receive necessary credentials, emphasizing our commitment to responsive governance and a leadership that reflects the collective voice of our members.

Recognition of Ranks

In STARFLEET on the USS Renaissance, ranks are symbolic achievements earned through accomplishments, devoid of real-world significance. Each crew member is a crucial part of the team, and promotions are based on a point system earned through active participation in events. To seek a promotion, track your points and present them to the Executive Officer (XO) by month-end, with final approval by the Commanding Officer (CO). Field Promotions, granted by the Captain for exceptional service, contribute points toward the desired rank, but earned points must still be used. New members start as Crewman Recruit (E-1) or SFMC Private (E-1), and transferring members retain their previous rank. Moving from enlisted to officer rank requires passing the STARFLEET Academy’s Officer Training School (OTS) exam. Points are spent, not cumulative, and Officially Sanctioned Chapter Events (OSCEs) earn promotion points. Keep in mind, a crew member is limited to one promotion per month. In STARFLEET, it’s about teamwork, recognition, and responsible use of earned ranks. Use our spreadsheet to track and calculate your promotion points.

See Section 04:02 – Ranks and Promotions in the handbook.

Transferring Members

Any member in good standing transferring to the USS RENAISSANCE from another STARFLEET Chapter shall retain their previous rank and position whenever possible, and earn the minimum number of points allotted that rank upon presentation of proof of having earned that rank through legitimate means.
