Astraeus has a crew of 1,291 (350 officers and 814 enlisted, with 127 civilians). This number is significantly higher than earlier Galaxy class starships due to the additional crew carried now that more of the ship's internal volume is filled out, and because of her higher maintenance requirements.
The 350 officers aboard the Astraeus represent slightly less than a quarter of the ship's total complement. To become an officer, these individuals have either graduated Starfleet Academy or earned their commission through the Officer Candidate School after having attained their education in their field elsewhere.
Officers assume leadership roles within their departments and are responsible for training and supervising both junior officers and the enlisted personnel under their command.
The 814 enlisted personnel aboard Astraeus make up the majority of the ship's crew and are distributed across the ship's departments in various technical specialties and duty posts distinct from officers, who they are under the command of. For instance, medics and lab technicians are enlisted personnel whereas physicians, nurses, and scientists are commissioned officers (see officer duty posts above). All enlisted personnel are eligible for NPC/PNPC play.
Non-Starfleet personnel such as those from other Federation agencies (Federation Security, Federation Diplomatic Corps, etc.) are occasionally attached to the ship on special assignments.
The bulk of the civilians aboard are the family members of Starfleet personnel. Though not members of Starfleet, it is required that these people have undergone safety and procedural training for what to do during emergencies aboard a starship, and most work in jobs aboard ship that do not require Starfleet training, such as barbers, teachers, and journalists. Occasionally, scientists or diplomats may also be carried aboard for specific missions.

Complete Ship's Roster
Enlisted duty posts and personnel are listed in italics and are all eligible for NPC/PNPC play.
Officer duty posts marked with an asterisk are eligible for NPC/PNPC play.
General NPCs are listed in plain text with (NPC) after their names.
If you wish to write for an NPC/PNPC to fill a duty post listed below that is not currently taken or "filled to capacity," you may do so by simply simming the character directly and then adding the character's name to the roster below.
Numbers listed within each department are not static. If you have an idea for an NPC or PNPC you wish to introduce for a duty post not listed or already filled, please don't hesitate to contact the command staff to discuss further.
The wiki is considered an out-of-character (OOC) resource to document what is actually simmed. If you add a character to the wiki roster but do not actually introduce that character IC into our sim, then others are allowed to introduce their own character and update the wiki to reflect the actual ship complement accordingly.
