Generally, the CC is tasked with IC issues. The list of reserved powers for the CC is as follows:

  • Creation of "official" alien races;
  • Recognition of plants, races, concepts, weapons, scientific advances, religions, political movements or developments, philosophies or other things or ideas as being an official part of the UFOP milieu once those ideas, concepts or things have been discussed in simulated plots;
  • Serving as the first appellate forum for the discipline of commanders and junior officers;
  • Creation of new awards or discontinuance of old awards except those applicable to flag officers only;
  • Creation, alteration or amendment of the requirements for advancement to the rank of full commander;
  • To call upon the EC by majority resolution to act on any issue. If the EC shall not act within 30 days of the EC magistrate receiving word of the resolution from the CC magistrate, the right to act shall return to the CC who shall act subject to the other articles of this CONSTITUTION (including EC veto powers and discipline). If the CC does not act within 30 days of the resolution return, the resolution becomes null and void as if never passed.
