"Fantasy Crew" is your chance as a fan to help pick the all-time Star Trek dream team crew!
This week's vote is for First Officer - submit yours now!
Aboard a starship the first officer is the second-in-command, just below the captain. On a Federation starship, the first officer had the following functions:
- Serve as the principal adviser to the captain
- Implementing the captain's orders
- Preparing and issuing duty rosters
- Commanding the vessel in the event of the captain's absence, incapacitation or death
- Working with the chief medical officer or counselor on crew evaluations
In Starfleet the position was usually held by an officer with the rank of commander or lieutenant commander. The position was also referred to as executive officer (or XO).
There have been some amazing first officers in the five live-action series, but which one do you think stands out from the rest in their duties and overall contribution to their crew?
