Command is the department responsible for keeping the other departments together. They make sure that things are happening the way they are supposed to, they facilitate meetings and events, make decisions regarding the future of the ship and represent the ship to STARFLEET Command. The Command department is usually where the ship’s highest-ranking officers will serve.
New members who have not yet chosen a Department to serve in, aka ‘Recruits’ are looked after by the Command Department, but they are not considered members of the Department. Recruits are, in effect, a separate group.
Only volunteer “Duty Station holders” can be assigned to the Command Department.
