Regulations and K/S

Say for a moment that all those 70's/80's fanfic writers were correct - Kirk and Spock DID get down and nasty, profess their undying love for each other and ended up in a relationship.

What would Starfleet do? Crewmembers aren't banned from getting together (The couple in "Balance of Terror", Scotty/Mira, Scotty/Uhura, Paris/Torres, Riker/Troi, Spock/Uhura etc.), but a captain and first officer?

Discuss.

I'd assume one would be transferred to a new post.

riker and troi were allowed to serve together on the titan, and they were married, so i don't think anyone would be transferred. but then that was nearly 100 years later so maybe was different.

as long as they remained professional, and we know they would, i don't think anything would have changed

Not sure that have the top two members of any organization in a personal relationship is a good idea.

But (as I understand it) Troi was not the first officer of the Titan. For Kirk to have a affair with Nurse Chapel, would be different to having a affair with Spock. Because Chapel isn't the ship's first officer.

"Spock," Jim asked, masking the pain of the news he just received from Starfleet Command. "They say... you should be transerred... to a new post."

"Jim," Spock said, an unaccustomed gentleness in his voice. "I assure you, I'll always prefer your 'post' to any other."




What?

Re: Regulations and K/S

For all we know, they did. For all we know, everone did. If so, I could not care less. It's none of my business in the real world of 2012 -- and even the U.S. military now agrees regarding its own personnel -- and certainly none of my business in a fictitious future.

The only issue would be cases of harrassment, i.e. officers making unwelcome overtures to those with lower ranks. But that also is the same in civilian life today, among so-called "straight" people in the workplace. And it's just never a good idea to start an office romance.

It's not exactly clear what your point is.

so-called "straight" people
Now I'm really not sure what the hell you talking about.

You actually don't know what term "straight people" refers too?

My point is that this is all prurient at best.

Most companies I've worked for have fraternization policy. I suspect today's military does to. A CO and XO in a romantic relationship would violate that policy.

Starfleet may allow captain's discretion in such a case.
