Science officers were responsible for participating in scientific tasks and research aboard starships and stations. They were overseen by a chief science officer.

Duties and functionsEdit

Science officers aided the chief science officer in all scientific missions performed by the starship or station. However, not all Starfleet vessels were assigned science officers. In those cases, science duties were delegated to the chief operations officer. Scientific research starships, however, had large science departments comprised of many science officers. Vessels tasked with exploration mission also had large numbers of since officers assigned to the starship.


Science Officers usually hold the rank of Lieutenant on a small ship but for much bigger ships they would hold the rank of lieutenant commander, commander and some times captain
