Oumuamua Simming Guide/Promotions
|Oumuamua Simmer Guide|
Standard policy on the 'Oumuamua is that you must write full-time for at least one full mission before your character receives their next promotion, regardless of what rank you begin at. If you arrive mid-mission, then you want to try and begin simming full-time immediately.
Note that being a writer-in-residence aboard 'Oumuamua for a "full mission" means that you arrived no more than one week after the beginning of the mission. At the end of missions, the CO will present service ribbons to PCs and specific PNPCs as necessary.
Promotion of Player Characters
Promotions occur after the end of missions. However, the timing of promotions within shore leave may vary: Sometimes promotions occur directly after the mission has ended, and sometimes they occur just before the next mission is set to begin. Your best resource for working toward your next promotion is the fleetwide Promotions Guide.
Before your next promotion, you should complete the appropriate questionnaire from the Oumuamua Rank Questionnaires and send it to the command team.
Aboard the Oumuamua, the Player Achievements system is no longer used as part of the promotion process. However, similar Oumuamua Player Achievements are available, but are just for fun and are not required for promotions.
Promotions of NPCs
Technically, only the commanding officer can authorize promotions IC. However, you may want to promote one of your NPCs or PNPCs at some point if you started them at a rank below your own. You are free to create and promote NPCs up to your current rank. For IC "realism," you can tell your NPC/PNPC that your PC is recommending them for promotion (for instance, if your PC is the chief medical officer and your NPC is a nurse in his or her department), but you are free to then show them in a later sim having been promoted "off screen."
