Foreword

These are in-character guidelines of things you should not do, or you may be fired/demoted. Department SOPs are not server rules. They are also not meant to be followed to the letter, because circumstances and context may permit you to break SOP. However, the fact that SOP is malleable is not an excuse to ignore it entirely. Disputes involving SOP should be handled entirely in-character, and should not require admin intervention unless server rules have also been broken. Department Standard Operating Procedures are in addition to normal Standard Operating Procedure.

ResearchDirector.pngResearch Director

  1. The Research Director is permitted to carry a telescopic baton and a flash.
  2. The Research Director may only give protolathe weaponry to the Master-at-Arms.
  3. The Research Director is not permitted to authorize the construction of AI units without the Captain’s approval. An exception is made if the station was not provided with an AI unit, or the previous AI unit had to be destroyed.
  4. The Research Director is permitted to change the AI unit’s lawset, provided they receive general approval from the Captain and another Head of Staff. If there are no other Heads of Staff available, Captain approval will suffice.
  5. The Research Director must work with Robotics to make sure all Cyborgs remain slaved to the station’s AI unit, except in such a situation where the AI unit has been subverted or is malfunctioning.
  6. The Research Director must ensure the proper containment of all hostile Xenobiology lifeforms.

  1. Scientists are not permitted to create AI Core Boards without express permission from the Captain and/or Research Director.
  2. Scientists are not permitted to free hostile Xenobiology lifeforms.
  3. Scientists may not experiment on crewmembers without their written consent and approval from the Research Director.
  4. Scientists may not force crewmembers to become Slimepersons.
  5. Scientists are, however, permitted to offer the Slimeperson mutation to other crewmembers.
  6. Scientists are not permitted to steal items for research purposes.

Roboticist action.pngRoboticist

  1. The Roboticist is not permitted to construct Combat Mechs without express permission from the Captain or Head of Security. This refers to the Durand, Gygax and Phazon. If permitted, the mechs are to be delivered to the Master-at-Arms.
  2. The Roboticist is freely permitted to construct utility mechs, along with any assorted utility equipment. This refers to Ripleys (to be handed to Mining), Firefighting Ripleys (to be handed to Atmospherics) and the Odysseus Medical Mech (to be handed to Medical). The HONK mech is not to be constructed without written approval by the Research Director and Captain.
  3. The Roboticist is freely permitted to construct Cyborgs and all assorted equipment.
  4. The Roboticist is not permitted to debrain crewmembers or turn them into Cyborgs without express written consent from the crewmember in question. The consent form should be kept safe.
  5. The Roboticist is not permitted to construct AI units without express consent from the Captain and Research Director.
  6. The Roboticist must place a tracking beacon on all constructed mechs.
  7. The Roboticist must work together with the Research Director to make sure all Cyborgs remain slaved to the station’s AI Unit, except in such a situation where the AI Unit has been subverted or is malfunctioning.
  8. The Roboticist must DNA-Lock all parked mechs prior to delivery. DNA-Lock must be removed when the mech is delivered to its final destination.
