Okay, I finally have the pieces in place where they need to be, so I can start in on some action events soon.
When I started writing this story, I didn't have a crew roster nailed down. A couple years ago, I finalized a complete list of ranks / rates and duty stations for a typical cutter crew. The normal crew complement is one hundred, give or take a couple. There are normally twelve to fourteen officers, four or five chiefs (one being a senior chief), about seventy petty officers, and a dozen of so "non rates" (junior enlisted below PO3).
I'm still filling in name for the ship in this story, but I have the officers done:
Crew of Patrol Cutter Magnum
Captain = Lieutenant Commander Thomas Isenberg
First Officer = Lieutenant Ryan Kingsley
Ops Officer = Lieutenant Ursula Maida (female Alpha-Centauran)
Science Officer = Lieutenant Benjamin Franklin Dupree
