    So a friend of mine just asked me what is Carol's position on the Enterprise. She asked is she taking Spock's place as Science Officer? And I thought wow I don't know. So any ideas on what position she will be taking while on the Enterprise?

    Spock calls her "an additional science officer", so I assume she'll be part of his department. She's also a weapons' specialist, which will no doubt come in handy.

    If it's up to Kirk, it'll be anything but Missionary ;)

    Marcus will be one of the Science Specialists aboard the Enterprise under Spock. Spock and Marcus will gang up together to make Kirk's life joy/misery.
    Spock and she are going to work together to help terraform New Vulcan.

    Which will be murderously awkward since Spock-Prime already chose a habitable Vulcanesque planet and the refugees are already living there! :devil: ;)

    Here's a thought: Maybe Carol will be the Chief Science Officer *on the Beta shift*? It might be interesting if we finally got a Trek that didn't usually pretend that the Alpha shift bridge crew are the only crew that are ever on duty when anything interesting happens.

    Her 'official' position?

    "Captain's Woman". :evil:

    (Hey, it is another parallel universe... it could happen, right?)

    Kirk's yeoman, perhaps cocktease if she doesn't play along.

    If I recall correctly, Peter David once did a humorous issue of his DC Comics' movie era TOS comic in which we meet the Gamma Shift on an unusually eventful evening on the bridge of the USS Enterprise. Lots of very weird aliens and a few misfits.

    I'm pretty sure we can do better than this.

    We can do better. Some of us are discussing this seriously, others in a locker-room tone.

    I thought King Daniel Into Darkness response very much nailed it. He listed the facts in evidence as demonstrated by canon so beyond his comments would be pure speculation/wishful thinking, anyway.

    Exactly! For example, my wishful thinking is speculating that, upon the faintest hint of the merest possibility of danger, Carol will cling to Kirk, informing him, breathlessly: "Captain ... I'm frightened."

    Re: WHAT IS CAROL'S OFFICIAL POSITION ON THE FIVE YEAR MISSION?

    In the movie, it seems she took advantage of Spock being reassigned to get herself aboard the Enterprise. But then Kirk was allowed to retain Spock, and her orders were never changed. Had events not unfolded as they did, it probably would've been cleared up by moving Carol to another post on the Enterprise or assigning her to another ship.

    As it is, she's on the five-year mission, and my guess is she'd defer to Spock as science officer and fall back on her expertise in weaponry to define her formal position on the ship. Since weapons are a part of security, that would mean changing into a red uniform, of course, God help her.

    I thought Carol sort of snuck aboard.

    Spock found out - but didn't tell Kirk until later.

    You're thinking 24th Century. In TOS weapons were Gold/Command. Sulu and Chekov fired weapons and the phaser crew in BOT wore gold.

    Also,Lt Masters worked with engineering as a blueshirt.
