Ship's Articles

Postby ShadoWarrior » Wed Apr 08, 2015 7:10 pm

To all officers, crew, civilians, and passengers of the Independent Frigate Far Orbit: the following ship's articles replace the Imperial Military Code and Regulations and must be observed at all times and without question.

1. Officers and votes. The captain of the Far Orbit is Dhas Vedij. All officers shall be appointed by the captain, except for the shareout committee, which shall be elected by the crew. During any period where the Far Orbit is not in immediate danger, any officer may call for votes on matters unsettled by these articles. The final determination on whether or not the ship is in danger resides solely with the Captain. Every officer and crew member shall have a vote when votes are called for, and equal share of provisions found during the course of our activities.

2. Shareout. All booty shall be doled out fairly, under the watch of a group of seven shipmates selected by the crew. The Captain, Operations Officer, Engineer, Weapons Officer, Quartermaster, and public stock shall receive 2 shares, other officers 1½ shares, and all other crew 1 share each. Defrauding the crew shall be punished by marooning.

3. Distractions. No gambling, intoxicants, or other distractions shall be undertaken while personnel are on duty. Failure to comply with this Article is punishable by forfeiture of share.

4. Readiness. Weapons and vacuum suits will be kept clean and serviceable at all times. Failure to comply with this article is punishable by forfeiture of share.

5. Addition of crew. No additional crew will be added during the tour once crew strength reaches serviceable levels (in the Captain's sole discretion). Should the crew complement be reduced to skeleton levels, the Captain will suspend the tour until the complement is renewed to fighting strength.

6. Desertion. Desertion of one's battle station is punishable by marooning or death by spacing, at the vote of the crew.

7. Disputes. Duty disputes shall be settled by the section officer or watch commander. Personal disputes are to be settled planetside by duel. No fighting is allowed on board. Failure to comply with this article is punishable by marooning.

8. Disbanding. The crew of the Far Orbit shall not retire or disband until each of us has shared out 1,000,000 credits or served one Standard year. Those crippled during the tour shall receive 250,000 credits out of the public stock, and those who have suffered other wounds will receive shares paid out proportionately.

9. Prisoners. Captives will be held safely in the brig or in assigned quarters. Torture or abuse of prisoners is strictly forbidden. Failure to comply with this article is punishable by imprisonment in the brig or marooning, determined by a crew vote.

10. Allegiance. The Far Orbit is a Privateer under contract to the Alliance to Restore the Republic, and will abide by the terms of her Letter of Marque and Reprisal.

By order of Captain Dhas Fenoep Vedij, Master of the Independent Frigate Far Orbit
