Made up some of the longest-serving and highest-ranking active members of SFC the Admiralty Board are responsible for the organisation, direction and day-to-day running of the Club in general as well as encouraging and nurturing the Command Support Staff and Unit Commanding Officers to maintain the Star Trek image and the fantasy image of Starfleet Command as a believable Fleet in the image of the organisation seen in the TV Shows and Movies.
Admiral Mark Mitchell, Director of Operations
The Director of Operations (DOPS) oversees all aspects of the daily operation of Starfleet: his duties include the chairing and moderation of the Admiralty Board, Unit Naming and Commissioning, providing guidance and encouragement to new and probationary Units, matters of Procedure and any and all matters that have a Fleet-wide impact from the the core organisation of the whole organisation to the creation of new manuals and exams.
Admiral Mitchell first showed his talents by rising from the Engineering decks to Command of the near-mythical Kronos One, before serving as CO to two incarnations of the record-breaking USS Demeter along with flying the desks of Deputy Director of Operations, Head of Fleet Engineering and Starbase 44 at various times in his career.
Director of Administration
Replacing the Office of Fleet Administration, Unit Operations bridges both the fantasy and real world operations of Starfleet – being responsible not only for those matters relating to the real people who make up our Membership but also for maintaining the infrastructure that creates the fantasy of being in Starfleet and supervises it’s smooth operation. Everything from incoming memberships to the design of this website originate from the Director of Admin’s desk.
The Director of Administration role is currently vacant with membership services temporarily handed through the Director of Communications.
Vice Admiral James Tyler, Director of Communications
More than ever, Communication is vital to the smooth running of Starfleet – the Internet, e-mail and new media have all changed the job beyond recognition. Beyond the club Newsletter, Comms is also responsible for ensuring SFC Units maintain contact not only with the Admiralty, but also with each other. The Director of Communications is also responsible for disseminating information within the organisation, ensuring that members are aware of just what’s going on. As well as providing guidance and support to Unit Communications Officers, he also shares Administration Duties at Starbase Europa, the Fleet Internet Forum.
Much like the Admiralty Board, our fleet support staff are volunteers who have graciously given up their active roles within their units to serve the fleet as a whole, providing support for all officers and crew.
Lt. Commander Wayne Robinson
Starfleet Academy Commandant
Taking on the task of operating the Academy, Lt Commander Robinson helps guide new members of SFC through their early days as cadets and prepares them for duty as well as takes on the heavy workload of handling and grading cadets as they move through the officers program.
Fleet Admiral Scott Arlow
Chief of Staff
With a rich experience of Unit Command, Operations and all aspects of life in SFC and in wider fandom, Fleet Admiral Arlow had held nearly evey office in Quadrant two. The longest serving active member in SFC, Fleet Admiral Arlow held the top office as Director of Operations for a stunning fifteen years before standing down and accepting the ceremonial role of Chief of Staff.
