Ops Station

Deck One

The OPS, or Operations Station, is located in front of and to the left of the Captainís chair and flanked on the right by the CONN station. From the OPS Station the On-Duty OPS Officer controls and manages the vessels resources.The OPS Officer must constantly watch over the shipís energy grid; making sure that every departmentís needs are met while keeping enough power appropriately routed for the shipís primary mission.Most of this is controlled by the shipís computer, but the watchful eye of the OPS Officer makes sure that all needs are met.When the ship goes to an alert status other than green, it is the responsibility of the OPS Officer to ensure that all Defensive and Offensive weapons systems receive adequate power, this in addition to life support and other vital ship systems.

CONN Station

Deck One

The CONN Station, also known as Helm or Flight Control, is located in front of and to the right of the Captainís Chair.It is flanked to the left by the OPS Station.

The CONN Officer, also called the Helmsman or Flight Control Officer, pilots the ship through space from this station.The computer performs the bulk of the work in regards to course maintenance and hazard avoidance, but the Helmsman must still oversee the process to ensure that all is well.When in battle the difference between victory and defeat can often be due to the actions of a quick fingered Helmsperson inputting evasive maneuvers.The CONN Officer must also interact with Main Engineering, to deliver the appropriate engine performance when requested by the Captain.
