  • Flight Operations (USS Columbus)

    Typically deployed on starbases and planetary starports, the Flight Operations department coordinates all inbound and outbound traffic and oversees all craft arriving and departing. In the case of the Columbus, it is additionally responsible for the navigation and flight control of the vessel and its auxiliary craft, and thus includes pilots trained in both starship and auxiliary craft piloting.

    The Flight Operations department also coordinates the activities of any fighter squadrons assigned to the station/starport, including launch and recovery operations.

  • Strategic Operations (USS Columbus)

    Typically deployed on Task Group, Task Force, or Fleet command vessels, the Strategic Operations department coordinates all Starfleet and allied assets in within their designated operational zone. The Strategic Operations department may also act in an advisory role to the Command Staff providing a resource of knowledge and information concerning allies and hostile races alike in the operational zone of the ship, as well as combat strategies, tactical analysis (in the absence of a dedicated tactical department) and intelligence gathering (in the absence of a dedicated intelligence department).

  • Medical & Counseling (USS Columbus)

    The medical & counseling department is responsible for the mental and physical health of the crew, from running annual physicals to combatting a strange plague that is afflicting the crew to helping a crew member deal with the loss of a loved one.

    • Romulan Diplomatic Detachment

  • 2nd Battalion, 38th Marine Expeditionary Force (USS Columbus)

    While the Security & Tactical Department has the primary responsibility for the protection of the ship and crew, the Marine Detachment is a powerful tactical addition to any ship. Their advanced training and equipment makes them ideally suited for handling extreme situations, such as repelling boarders, boarding actions, assaulting fortified positions, and planetary defense.

    As the Task Force 38 Flagship, the Columbus is assigned a battalion from the 38th Marine Expeditionary Force, allowing the ship to project a strong presence on the ground as well as in space.

  • 38th Starfighter Group (USS Columbus)

    The best pilots in Starfleet, they are responsible for piloting the starfighters in ship-to-ship battles, ground assault and close support operations, and as escorts for shuttles and runabouts.

    • Gryphon Fighter Wing

      The Gryphon-class starfighter is a multi-role fighter with a flexible mission profile including space-superiority, heavy strike, and close support operations thanks to external hardpoints that allow for additional, mission adaptable ordinance loadouts. It's high maximum warp factor significantly increases its effective operational range, making it ideal for long-range strike missions.

    • Javelin Fighter Wing

      The Javelin-class starfighter is a dedicated space-superiority fighter. Designed specifically for anti-starfighter operations and capitol ship support, the Javelin is blisteringly fast at impulse and highly maneuverable. Javelins also incorporate the latest in sensor stealth technology and miniaturized shielding. The result is a fighter that's extraordinarily difficult to kill and, with four Type-XI pulse phasers tied to an advanced targeting computer, capable of delivering firepower sufficient to destroy light craft with pin-point accuracy. This specialization does carry a certain cost in versatility, as the Javelin mounts only a single micro-torpedo launcher with a modest magazine and thus is of limited use against larger starships and fortified planetary targets. It also lacks sufficient vectoring surfaces, reducing its atmospheric maneuverability to that of a type-9 shuttlecraft, making it ill-suited for close support and rapid-strike missions.

    • Valkyrie Fighter Wing

      The Valkyrie-class starfighter is a heavy-strike assault bomber. While originally Starfleet's workhorse multi-role starfighter, the Valkyrie is now over a decade old and has largely been replaced by its successor, the Gryphon-class. Despite this, there's one role where the Valkyrie still excels: heavy-strike assault bomber. It's full-size torpedo launcher and payload of 8 photon or quantum torpedoes makes it highly effective against capitol ships, stations, and fortified ground targets.

  • Civilian Affairs (USS Columbus)

    Civilians play an important role in Starfleet. Many civilian specialists across a number of fields work on occasion with Starfleet personnel as a Mission Specialist. In other cases, extra ship and station duties, such as running the ship's lounge, are outsourced to a civilian contract.
