I'm looking to gather information on what those 85 crew would be doing on the ship, and what kind of rank structure we'd see on the ship, as if it were a real starship. Specifically, what positions should the first Warp 5 ship have, what ranks would you need to hold to have specific positions, and which ratings would the ship have? I'm trying to tie it in to The Cage and TOS, so there will be yeomen to assist the captain, and I'm trying to tie it more closely to the modern Navy, so there should be enough enlisted to do most of the heavy lifting. I just want to make sure there are enough people do do all the jobs needed. So far: Bridge crew: Position - minimum rank Captain - Captain First Officer - Commander Chief Engineer - Lt Cdr Science Officer - Lt Cdr Chief Medical Officer - Lt Cdr Communications Officer - Lt Tactical Officer - Lt Helmsman - Lt Navigation (added to tie into TOS) - Lt. Departments: Command: -Captain (1) - captain -First Officer (1) - CDR -Second Officer (1) LT CDR -Chief of the Boat (1) - SPO -anything else? Engineering - headed by Chief Engineer, Lt Cdr -chief (1) - Lt Cdr -assistant chief (1) - Lt -damage control specialist -computer system specialist -environmental system specialist -warp drive system specialist -impulse drive system specialist -sensor system specialist Operations? -Chief Operations Officer (1) - CPO?

Have I missed any positions/ranks there should be on a starship?
