The Command Department is composed of 30 people who fill multiple unique and universal positions. The primary function of this department is to create and maintain command functions throughout the USS North Carolina

Command Positions

The Command Team is comprised of 3 officers and 1 enlisted person. Though the Commanding Officer, Executive Officer and Command Master Chief (Chief of the Boat) are the only three persons dedicated to the Command of the ship, the role of Second Officer is a member of the Senior Staff who performs the role while still representing a department aboard the USS North Carolina.

Commanding Officer
Officer QTY: 1 Ultimately responsible for the ship and crew, the Commanding Officer is the most senior officer aboard a vessel. S/he is responsible for carrying out the orders of Starfleet, and for representing both Starfleet and the Federation.
Executive Officer
Officer QTY: 1 The liaison between captain and crew, the Executive Officer acts as the disciplinarian, personnel manager, advisor to the captain, and much more. S/he is also one of only two officers, along with the Chief Medical Officer, that can remove a Commanding Officer from duty.
Second Officer
Officer QTY: 1 At times the XO must assume command of a Starship or base, when this happens the XO needs the help of another officer to assume his/her role as XO. The second officer is not a stand-alone position, but a role given to the highest ranked and trusted officer aboard. When required the Second Officer will assume the role of XO, or if needed CO, and performs their duties as listed, for as long as required.
Chief of the Boat
Enlisted QTY: 1 The seniormost Chief Petty Officer (including Senior and Master Chiefs), regardless of rating, is designated by the Commanding Officer as the Chief of the Boat (for vessels) or Command Chief (for starbases). In addition to his or her departmental responsibilities, the COB/CC performs the following duties: serves as a liaison between the Commanding Officer (or Executive Officer) and the enlisted crewmen; ensures enlisted crews understand Command policies; advises the Commanding Officer and Executive Officer regarding enlisted morale, and evaluates the quality of noncommissioned officer leadership, management, and supervisory training.

The COB/CC works with the other department heads, Chiefs, supervisors, and crewmen to insure discipline is equitably maintained, and the welfare, morale, and health needs of the enlisted personnel are met. The COB/CC is qualified to temporarily act as Commanding or Executive Officer if so ordered.
