Crew Positions

Helms

The Helms console is manned by the Helmsman, who is responsible for all functions related to the movement of the Dark Ice. The Helmsman also shares with the Weapons Officer the ability to raise and lower shields, and change the view on the Main-screen. Along with the Captain and Weapons, it is one of the three most important roles in the game.

The Weapons console is manned by the Weapons Officer, sometimes called the "Tactical Officer". The Weapons Officer's role is not only to manage all of the weapons on the Dark Ice but also prepares scientific instruments like Probes and Beacons. The ship's stock of Homing Torpedoes can also be converted into energy, giving the Weapons Officer control of an emergency reserve of fuel.

 Science

The Science console is manned by the Science Officer, who is responsible for tracking enemy ships and locating bases and environmental hazards in the sector. The Dark Ice's powerful long-range sensors can be used to scan enemy ships and uncover their weaknesses, as well as identify anomalies or xeno-organisms that can be used as a source of energy or lured into attacking your foes.

 Comms

The Communications officer sends and receives messages from computer-controlled ships and stations. Communications need to work closely with science to monitor what’s happening around the ship, and in combat situations get enemy vessels to surrender. They also coordinate with Friendly Space-Stations to manufacture weapons and power for your ship.

Last but not least is the Captain of the Dark Ice, while they have no specific station but they do get the good Chair. It is their job is to see the big picture and make decisions about what missions to undertake, what enemies to take out, and to keep the crew alive. Communication skills are vital for a good Captain.
