Mission Types
  • Deep-space Exploration: The Prometheus class is equipped for long-range interstellar survey and mapping missions, as well as the ability to explore a wide variety of planetary classifications.
  • Contact with Alien Lifeforms: Pursuant to Starfleet Policy regarding the discovery of new life, facilities aboard the Prometheus class include a variety of exobiology and xenobiological suites, and a small cultural anthropology staff, allowing for limited deep-space life form study and interaction.
  • Patrol and Interdiction: Typical missions include the patrol of established neutral zones, shipping lanes and recognized regions of dispute and/or conflict.
  • Reconnaissance: Typical missions include scouting of areas deemed worthy of note by Starfleet Intelligence.
  • Emergency/Search and Rescue: Typical Missions include answering standard Federation emergency beacons, extraction of Federation or Non-Federation citizens in distress, retrieval of Federation or Non-Federation spacecraft in distress. Planetary evacuation is not feasible.
Operating Modes
  • Cruise Mode - The normal operating condition of the ship.
  • Yellow Alert - Designates a ship wide state of increased preparedness for possible crisis situations.
  • Red Alert - Designates an actual state of emergency in which the ship or crew is endangered, immediately impending emergencies, or combat situations.
  • Blue Alert – Mode used aboard ships with planetfall capability when landing mode is initialized. Note: This class of ship does not haveplanet fall capability.
  • External Support Mode - State of reduced activity that exists when a ship is docked at a starbase or other support facility.
  • Reduced Power Mode - This protocol is invoked in case of a major failure in spacecraft power generation, in case of critical fuel shortage, or in the event that a tactical situation requires severe curtailment of onboard power generation.

During all modes of operation, the ship runs on four six-hour shifts designated Alpha, Beta, Gamma and Delta.

Typical four (4) shift command is as follows:
Alpha shift - Commanding Officer (0600 Hours to 1200 Hours)
Beta Shift – Executive Officer (1200 Hours to 1800 Hours)
Gamma Shift – Second Officer (1800 Hours to 2400 Hours)
Delta Shift – Third Officer - (0000 Hours to 0600 Hours)

Note: Midnight is called both 2400 and 0000. At the end of the day, it is 2400 hrs, and at the beginning of the next, it is 0000 hrs.
