The station hierarchy

Heads of Staff

AKA Command Staff. These are the men and women charged with the administration of the station. Each of them have access to the Bridge and Brig, the keycard authentication devices, the command radio channel (accessed with :c), the ability to make station-wide announcements and may call/recall the Escape Shuttle using a communications console. They are also the targets during a Revolution.
