Rules & Regulations
Standard Starfleet rules and regulations apply
throughout the ship. However, due to the unique nature of the fleet,
some additional guidelines have been implemented.
An “open door” policy is in effect across the fleet. All
crew members are welcome on all ships and may make full use of the
facilities found there. Crew visiting other ships should remember to
log in and out so that their whereabouts is known in case of emergency.

members should not attempt to enter an area for which they do not have

of serving Starfleet officers and offers excellent educational
standards as well as having both long and short term boarding

Any crew member wishing to bring pets on board should apply to the
captain for permission. All pets must be neutered and have up to date
vaccination certificates. Tribbles remain banned.
As the Rapid Response fleet is a joint
Federation/Klingon operation, all crew are expected to wear both
Starfleet and Klingon rank insignia on their uniforms.
Both Starfleet and Klingon Marine officers may wear Marine Corps rank
insignia but are also expected to wear the equivalent naval rank

black stripes to indicate the rank of the wearer. The sleeves have a

engraved in gold in its centre. Senior command staff are distinguished
by the laurel leaves framing the logo.

operates a four shift system. Each shift overlaps the following shift
by two hours. This is to allow crew members time for training and
development. The shift pattern rotates on a four weekly basis as shown:
The facilities on board the Starbase are available to
crew of all ships within the fleet. However, it should be noted that
