Alert Levels

Situation Green - All Clear

Standard operating level. No immediate or clear threat to the ship. All departments may carry out work as normal.

  • Suit sensors are not required to be on.
  • Weapons worn by security are to be hidden except when in the case of an emergency.
  • Crew members may freely walk in the hallways.
  • AI/Cyborgs have no need to bolt down any secure areas.
  • Security are allowed to conduct searches of suspicious individuals without a warrant, but not random searches. The definition of "suspicious" is left to the discretion of command.

Situation Amber - Martial Law

Elevated alert level. There are reports or other proof available to indicate that there is a threat to the ship, or chaos, mutiny, or rioting are ocurring. May only be called by the Captain after a unanimous command vote. Doing so without a vote will result in demotion.

  • Suit sensors are mandatory, but coordinate positions are not required.
  • Security may have weapons visible.
  • Random searches by security are allowed.
  • AI/Cyborgs may bolt down high secure areas.
  • Energy guns, laser guns and riot gear are allowed to be given out to security personnel if the HoS or Warden agree.
  • Security is authorized to use lethal force on suspects suspected of Felony or greater crimes who actively flee and resist arrest, and suspects who assault officers without responding to verbal warnings to stop.

General Quarters - Battle Stations

Situational alert level called in the event of contact with a hostile ship.

  • Suit sensors are to be turned fully on at all times.
  • All personnel are to assist engineering, security, and medical staff with damage control, fending off boarders, and triage.
  • Security is allowed to use lethal force with extreme prejudice on individuals who actively disrupt combat efforts. Proper justification is expected after the crisis ends and use of this clause for trivial matters can be considered assault or manslaughter, depending on the outcome.

Code Delta - Imminent Destruction

The station's self destruct mechanism has been engaged due to overwhelming threat to the station. Martial Law is in effect.

  • Suit sensors are to be turned fully on at all times.
  • All orders from Heads of Staff and security must be followed, any disobedience is punishable.
  • All crew members are to evacuate immediately, if possible.
