They are assisted by Dignitary Staff: the Magistrate, who leads the Legal Department, the NT Representative, who is a direct line of communication to Nanotrasen for the station, and the Blueshield Officer, who acts as a personal body guard for the Command staff as a whole. Dignitaries are also meant to advise command whenever necessary.
Command is, like security, NOT meant for new players, being time locked accordingly. The supporting roles do require more hours in their respective departments than the regular command team. Preferably, command roles should only be played when you have a good general idea of how a department and all its sub-departments work in order to be most effective at your job.
The Captain is in charge of station and everyone on it. The Captain's job is to coordinate heads of staff and make sure every department is doing their jobs. The Captain is the highest authority on station in most cases and they will need good leadership skills and experience.
The Head of Personnel is in charge of assigning and reassigning crew members correctly and making sure station departments are well-staffed and running optimally. They are in charge of the Service Department.
The Chief Engineer is tasked with running the Engineering Department. They have a strong understanding of engineering skills, how to maintain the engine, and keep station infrastructure and life support intact.
The Chief Medical Officer is in charge of the health of the crew. They make sure that the Medical Doctors are treating people effectively, and that the Virologists. Geneticists, and Chemists are productive.
The Quartermaster is in charge of making sure the Supply Department runs smoothly. They make sure shipments are coming in and that the miners aren't dead. Relatively easy role, it is a good introduction to Command and leadership.
