Re: The Sagittarius - Officer Overload?
Really think on a ship that small, you're gonna do 6-hour shifts. 6 on, 6 off, repeat. That lets you only have to have 2 people that can handle a job instead of the 3 you're trying to shoehorn in. Frees more people up for other jobs, and there was quite a list. In an emergency, all 14 are up and working anyway. Also gets you a couple free billets to actually carry the mission specialists for whatever you're out there for in the first place.
Perhaps, if I am very lucky, the feeble efforts of my lifetime will someday be noticed and maybe, in some small way, they will be acknowledged as the greatest works of genius ever created by man. ~Jack Handey
