I have this really, really bad feeling I just walked James INTO the presence of the XO...which if Fenq is truly the hard-ass you are suggesting, is likely to get "entertaining".
Is there any specifc way you would like IC "documents" formatted in post?
Ok.. for shifts, dis be the rotation I 'ave in me 'ead.
0800-1800 - Alpha Shift
1800-0100 - Bravo Shift
0100-0800 - Constellation Shift
Alpha Shift is longer, but it is also larger
. It is also the practice of the Fleet that Bravo and Constellation Shift members (especially on the lower decks) arrive early and leave late.
Generally if Condition One or Condition Two is called, the Alpha Shift is required to report for duty in the CIC. At Condition One, the Duty Shift (if not Alpha) remains in the CIC for combat support duties, while the Off Shift reports to secondary assignment stations throughout the ship, such as Damage Control Stations, Local Fire Control Stations, etc. If the Duty Shift is Alpha, then Bravo reports to the CIC for combat support. At Condition Two, the Duty and Off Shifts (if not Alpha) remain in a state of readiness, but are not required to report to specific stations if not ordered to do so by the CO.
Both the XO and the Major are on Alpha Shift, though the XO will often "Float" to other shifts and the Major has been known to make appearances at all times.
This is my tentative planning, and most of it is pulled directly out of thin air. I am toying with using a watch system more akin to that of the Royal Navy in the 1800's, but I'm not thinking too seriously on it.
In character "Documents"? If I understand what you mean, such as putting up the text of memos, etc, then I don't have any great preference. Just make it look good. If you mean something else, please explain.
