//Science Report – USS CHARON – Star Date:241011.07//
|Total Science Personnel: 24 (max 29/min 17/skeleton 3)|
A) Biology: Biology mixes with a lot of the other other fields, but the lab is utilized for a majority of the ships biological research including microbe study, cellar study, animal and space creature study, the study of Life, how it works, and how it continues to function today and in yester year.
Biology Officer in-charge: M. Blande |OFFICE HOURS: 1st shift
CURRENT STUDY SUMMARY: Ensign Mary Blande takes up the question, why does some food taste the same as others to differing species that are a part of the Federation or encountered by. She will be using the famous simulated holo-cadavers to chart taste buds and tactile sensitivity of over 100 differing humanoids, cross reference listed foods in the replicator, the age of re-sequenced proteins, and naturally grown, raised, or otherwise harvested foods.
Progress Update: Mary Continues with research this week. So far she has determined that flavors within species will vary by quite a bit dependent on age, early childhood diets, and chemoforic behaviors. It is the last of which she and her team are trying to isolate. She believes these Chemoforic behaviors hold the answer to the question the lab is based on.
B) Chemistry: Chemistry studies the physical nature of life, the study of chemicals and elements how they react and work together with each other. Chemistry often works with biology and physics to come to a closer understanding of what we explore on the ship.
Chemistry Officer in-Charge: T. Yin |OFFICE HOURS: 2nd Shift
CURRENT STUDY SUMMARY: Timothy Yin encounters new territory as he studies impromptu field chemistry, ranging from medical to weaponry uses of differing common substances on planets within the federation. He will be tasked with this interesting look at survival tactics that could save any Star Fleet personnel in a bind.
Status update: Timothy and his team now have identified properties of plant life which make for usefulness in medical supplies as well as poisons which could be used for hunting or weaponry. Project includes the fabrication of tools, equipment, and clothing.
C) Geo-sciences: The Geo Sciences department works with anthropology, Stellar Cartography, biology and other fields of science to grab a basis of the physical relationship of ecosystems, glaciations, gravitational pulls, tectonics, and seismic behavior of planets, moons, asteroids, and planetoids.
Geo-Sciences Officer in-Charge: I. Castillo |OFFICE HOURS: 1st Shift
CURRENT STUDY SUMMARY: Isabella Castillo studies the breakdown of ecosystems due to geological catastrophes as well as known situations where life adapted or did not. She will look at fossils of differing worlds, charted research of known worlds going through these changes and also developing simulated holo-programming of these changes.
Status Update: Isabella and her team have just about completed their holo-programing with the Vulcan assistants from planet personnel. The compilation so far seems promising, but much remains to be done this week with the programming to finish.
D) Physics: Physics assists in astrophysics, quantum physics, bio-physics, standard physics. The Physics team answers question in gravitational effects, trajectory, and other physics challenges. Often Physics will work with geology or stellar cartography.
Physics Officer in-Charge: S. Ronsett|OFFICE HOURS: 2nd Shift
SUMMATION OF CURRENT RESEARCH: Sarah Ronsett studies the possibility of natural phenomena to produce movement approaching and exceeding the speed of light.
Status Update: The Doomsday device and Crystaline entity are early examples of natural creatures reaching light speed and beyond. Other less famous incidents have been identified. So far the travel of these creatures seems to be due to physical make up of the objects. Non living naturally occurring objects seem to remain within the confines of sub warp velocities.
E) Stellar Cartography: Stellar Cartography works with Astro-metrics to provide maps of the galaxy and studies the stars themselves mapping inner corona and outer solar system alike.
Stellar Cartography Officer in-Charge: Y. Beindocoff/B. Roberts |OFFICE HOURS: 1st shift/2nd shift
SUMMATION OF CURRENT RESEARCH: Yuri Beindocoff and Ben Robert study several logged breakdowns of solar systems including star expansion, nova, expulsion of proto-mater, and compaction. Using the maps of the system and last reports the two will make some conjectures about which star is next, and what impact would a nova from these areas have on its localized regions. Team will also continue to provide maps of regions with in the ships general area.
Status Update: The team continues identification of stellar objects meeting research criteria. With the completion of repairs of astrometrics and stellar cartography holo-lab, research returns to the Charon.
F) Cybernetics: The team plays a part in science cybernetics and robotics. Together the team assists in probe assembly, repair, research, and equipment programming. These guys play a major role in research set up, and develop new ways to keep us busy and tooling our research.
Cybernetics Officer in-charge: Ollanda |OFFICE HOURS: 3rd shift
SUMMATION OF CURRENT RESEARCH: Ollanda and her team take on a project of refitting probes and new probe construction. The probes will be utilized for planet atmosphere and ground exploration, as well as space and deep star penetration studies.
Status Update: Probes are being compiled with better programming and differing capabilities for differing tasks. Repairs to the damaged probes is nearing completion, and some of the team are now assisting repairs to other labs and science equipment.
G) Anthropology: Part of the anthropologies job is to find out what humanoid life is like in surrounding solar systems. They are basically a historian, but also provide an in-depth analysis in to cultures, societies and the way people live now, then… and on many worlds flourishing, dying, or since perished. A lot of the teams focus is providing a guide for officers to use when approaching a world on or off duty.
Anthropology in-charge: G. Yellin |OFFICE HOURS: 3rd shift
SUMMATION OF CURRENT RESEARCH: George Yellin begins his one month research study on the T'kon Empire. Its growth and collapse, known lost outposts, and surviving elements or peoples from that time.
Status Update: Anthropology has identified several possible location which may have been outposts of the T'kon empire. Some of these archeological sites have been excavated, others remain a mystery as to where the outpost was situated. By identifying known trade routes and strategic points, Yellin has been able to hypothesize new locations, which may have been key areas to the T'kon civilizations and people. Yellin continues his research this week, but is nearing completion. Command team awaits a proposal for next research assignment.
SUMMATION OF CURRENT ASSIGNMENT: Production of edible food for ships mess hall, and continuing care for samples and specimens from ships travel.
Status Update: Botonay lab is doing well under Crewman Smith's care. If Smith does well, a promotion to technician may be recommended.
I) General Science Lab: The General Science lab will be available at request, but is currently on standby for mission specific research. The lab has holo-emitters for research and is shared with other departments as per request; departments can make use of the lab if unused by the science team. The General Science lab is the ships state of the art science laboratory capable of housing six differing experimentations from any science department. The lab assistant is charged with set up and preparing the lab for each team utilizing the lab. Additional assistants can be utilized if necessary from other labs.

VI. Science Commanders comments
+labs: Just a few labs damaged at the moment, Cybernetics is assisting engineering with lab repair. Bridge officers should help with bridge repair and sensor diagnostics.
+Shore Leave: Your welcome to visit the planet or stations near Vulcan, don't go far we may leave at moment's notice. Research for the time being is optional, but officers are encouraged to continue if so desired.
+Training: Petty Officer Rank is required to lead a research team. Science Crew wishing to run a lab should be trained in on lab functions of two differing labs and have gone through lab command training. Once this training is complete rank advancement to Petty Officer 3rd class will be given. (In character is fine) Once lab functions have been mastered a rank advancement to specialist will be given. If you're looking for training approach the science command team and training will begin.
