The Sciences Division is dedicated to the heart of Starfleet's mission: exploration. Officers in this division come from various backgrounds of knowledge, from the natural sciences to anthropological studies, as they venture out on the frontier of discovery. The sciences division also includes medical, nursing, and counseling personnel who not only perform medical research but also provide care for the health and wellness of the crew.

Main article: Science (Duty Post)

  • Main Responsibility: Providing and recording mission related data on anomalies, alien races etc, stellar mapping.
  • Other Responsibilities: Observation projects, planetary surveys, interstellar medium studies, cultural and life form studies

The Science Officer gives the crew background knowledge on any missions that they are about to begin. This knowledge is essential especially when dealing with races, which normally have little contact with the Federation. One tragic example was first contact with the Klingon Empire, where some background knowledge could have prevented decades of war and the loss of millions of lives. This example proves that this background knowledge must be accurate and contain all relevant information.

The Science Officer is responsible for searching Starfleet archives for information pertinent to current events. They provide the crew with relevant information on any encountered anomalies, unknown vessels or races etc.

Away teams always contain at least one Science Officer as standard.
