You kinda feel bad for those people... yeah you're going up against a Jem'Hadar fleet with top of the line vessels... oh you'll be in a hundred year old Miranda class. Good luck!

Worst Position: Security officer aboard the NCC-1701 of course!

Best Position: Would vary from person to person. I've long thought that being a bridge officer aboard one of the smaller, zippier ships like an Intrepid class would be cool. Or some cushy position aboard a starbase or something.

I think the crap end of the galaxy would have to be an assignment like the communications relay in Aquiel. It's only manned by a couple of people, your shipmate is probably annoying and whiny and if anything interesting happens, it's probably bad.

LOL!!


You would have had to do something quite bad to get stuck with that assignment, or just had bad grades at the academy.

Worse yet. Watch any of the battles and see how phasers can slice through seemingly undamaged Birds of Prey and Mirandas like if they were made of tissue paper.

Defiant? Psh, it has a console explode and maybe some lighting issues on the bridge.

Worst job in Starfleet, Captain J.T. Estabans' yeoman on the USS Grissom.

That or the ambassador to the Tholian home world... those bulky thermal body suits have got to be itchy and the food is always too hot!

Harry Mudd and the Hansen's aren't exactly ringing endorsements for letting civvies run around.
There have been plenty of other civilians with their own ships throughout Trek. If anything, Trek makes it clear that interstellar space is teeming with civilian ships.
And a lot of those civilians are like Kara Carpenter and her friend T'Ling of the fan show Star Trek Aurora, who are very good at what they do.

Re: Best and worst ship/base assignments?

The worst assignment is any ship in the same sector as the Enterprise, of course.

Troi's job as a spy on a Romulan vessel is a pretty unfortunate assignment if you ask me.

Transporter operator on Old City Station, the "hind end of space"? Ambassador in Nimbus 3?In that Q episode when Picard was a junior officer, he looked pretty pissed too. But as it was said above, the worse job on the Enterprise is holodeck janitor: article about it
