//--Promotion of Specialist Smith: Assignment to Head of Botany-//
The team had gathered in the General science lab, amongst them were the heads of each of the science department dressed in formal attire. Running in the advanced holo lab, situated in the center of the General science lab was a depiction of a platform with an old wooden podium and a black board behind it. There beside it were chairs to which the sub-department heads were situated. Amongst them was Commander Darye, who held a plaque and PADD loaded with formal acknowledgement he was about to give. In addition there was a black box on his lap. In a few moments he would begin his announcement to the science assembly.
Walking over to the podium the clatter in the background stopped. Arcos cleared his throat, looking over to the Botanist who would be honored at the assembly. She was looking as if she had nerves of steel despite the obvious pressure to hold appearances during the ceremony. Arcos thought to himself that his decision to extend her the duties of charge of the botany depart was well deserved. He looked around to the rest of the room to which the department personnel seemed to be focused upon himself. Taking a deep breath he opened his mouth and started, "Excellence to which we refer to in duty and devotion to studies of science as the reason and logical deduction through which the attainment of theory and law is granted is attributed to every good science officer or personnel aboard this ship. In regard to each and every dedicated science personnel there are some who go beyond excellence to reach a level of strength of character, choosing to take up the courage and devotion to command -That is to which we are here to cite or signify in pertains to the service of one of our science personnel in the field of botany." He paused and looked over at the specialist to whom would be receiving the award.
Specialist Smith… Front and center!" Commander Darye ordered.
"Yes Sir!" The specialist grinned and stood up taking place in front of the podium.
"You have been granted charge of the botany program, to which the duties include but do not summarize in entirety, care and devotion to plant and fungi specimens, command of volunteer and assigned personnel, and cultivation of edible foods from the specimens mention there above." Arcos paused taking a breath. "In addition, because of our policy of such assignment, rank grade of petty officer third class is granted."
The specialist stood at attention looking directly at the podium, grinning and a bit over come with satisfaction. Arcos handed her the plaque and the box with the new pip for petty officer. The Commander looked over to his team whom had stood up. "Science department, Applause is permissible." The team began to clap. "Petty officer Smith… you may return to ranks."
"In addition there is one more thing I must address. The team will be admitting volunteers from other departments to fill the need for duties to which our compliment can not grant in entirety. You are to treat them in both command and service with character deserving of department personnel. That is all. Science ranks, you are dismissed.

VI. Science Commanders comments
+Lab Assignments: If you come up with a good research assignment, just begin the process in character by developing a Pre-Lab report. I have attached a request form, just fill it in, and write something in character above about your character putting the report together.
+Training: If you are looking to advance in rank and you are a non-commissioned officer we will develop a role-play training month on in differing lab assistant positions. Once completed you might be promoted to Technician, after you master a lab for another month we should be able to promote you to specialist… at which point you'd be specialized to an inner department. As for leading a lab, we might be able to get you to work on your petty officer rank requirements and start training you on lab set up/and running the lab… not sure on the time requirement on that one, but we should be able to get you working on a story line in character.
