SHIP COMMUNICATIONS

When engaged in a mission, it is important that you use navy bridge language.  Below you will find some example phrases you may use to effectively communicate with your fellow officers while observing navy protocol.   Crews that are proficient in communications have a distinct advantage. For example, when responding to a superior officer you respond by saying "aye captian" or "aye aye sir".  "Aye" is a naval response indicating that an order has been received, is understood, and will be carried out immediately.

Navigations Officer

 

Communication

It is important that a Navigation Officer communicates what they are doing frequently to keep all other officers up-to-date with the current situation the ship is in. When carrying out an action, such changing the ships speed or plotting a course, then the Helm Officer must verbalise this action. Below are a number of examples of how a navigation officer may communicate during operations.

  • "Warp 1, engaged."

  • "Coming hard about."

  • "Turning to bearing 2-0-6 degrees."

  • "Bearing 0-6-4 set."

  • "Manoeuvring for target L25."

  • "Initiating docking sequence."

  • "Jump confirmed; Jumping in 10..."

  • "Increasing to impulse speed."

  • "Manoeuvring to engage enemies to port."

  • "Enemy fleet within combat range."

 

 

Weapons Officer(Gunner)


Communication
It is important that a Weapons Officer communicates what they are doing to keep other
officers up-to-date with the current situation the ship is in. When carrying out an action, such
as changing the shape of the ship or firing upon hostiles, then the Weapons Officer
must verbalise this action. Below are a number of examples of how a Weapons Officer may
communicate during operations.

  • "2 Seeker missiles remaining."

  • "Requesting more homing torpedoes ."

  • "Targeting Pirate Ship Cruiser Class."

  • "Target destroyed"

  • "Requesting more Proximity mines from Engineering."

 

 

Engineering Officer


Communication
It is important that the Engineering Officer both listens to communication between the bridge
officers and Weapons Officer. It is also
important that the Engineering Officer reports key information to the captain regularly.
Below are a number of examples of how an Engineering Officer may communicate during
operations.

  • "Engine Energy level at 50%"

  • "Cybersecurity Energy level is Critical"

  • "Damage to the Sensors"

  • "Damage to the Reactor Core"

  • "Weapons production currentlly offline"

  • "Shields Systems are at 20%"

  • "Ship’s Survelleinance Systems are offline"

  • "Scrubber Systems have been repaired and 100% operational"
     

 

Security Chief Responsibilities

 

Communication
It is important that a Security Chief communicates vital information to the other bridge

  • "Enemy hacker nuetralized"

  • "Shields have been lowered for transporters"

  • "Requesting more energy for Cybersecurity systems"
