This is the Star Trek: A Call to Duty - Officer's Manual.

It is a reference site containing additional information to help the players in portraying their characters in the ACTD universe. It is not required reading. It is a collection of articles with each position's description as well as Star Trek "techno-babble" to give the players additional vocabulary when portraying their characters.

This site's goal is not meant to add additional rules & regulations for the player but is to aid the player in portraying a Starfleet Officer with a bit more "realism".

A lot of hours were put into these documents. Your ability to use these documents depends on the following simple rule... that you give ACTD credit for the creation of the documents and provide a link, nothing more. We're not asking for a banner link, we're not demanding that an ACTD logo be displayed in ten foot tall letters on your website. The link consists of the following:

"These documents were created by the players for the online RPG Star Trek: A Call to Duty. If you wish to obtain your own documents, please visit. ACTD's Officer's Manual. "

and can be placed either at the bottom of the page on which the document appears, or in a more suitable location on your website specifically designed to give credit to any borrowed material. Yes, it's that simple... and what's more, you're doing it with permission.

This is the work of the dedicated members of Star Trek: A Call to Duty who have given their time and effort to create this work for you the players.  The idea for this document was first conceived during the 3rd annual ACTD convention in Las Vegas. Its goal is to answer the repetitive question that each and every crewmember asks themselves “What do I do now?”

If you are Science Officer, Engineering Officer or whatever position you play, that question has arisen in your thoughts many times. It is the hopes of each person that has given their time here to help you in playing better the position you occupy.

Many errors, omissions and “speeling” errors are expected and will be corrected if you the reader notice them and send corrections and comments to the Project coordinator Gilles Leger at
