Requirements for Promotion
In order to be promoted, a crew member must show evidence of performing certain tasks as outlined in the points system. Promotions to some ranks only require the crew member to earn a certain number of points. Other ranks require points plus passing certain STARFLEET ACADEMY SCHOOLS. Still others require points, passing certain STARFLEET ACADEMY SCHOOLS and time in service.
At the time of a promotion, the crewmember's points are immediately reset to zero. You can only claim points on things completed since your last promotion. A crew member can only be promoted one rank at a time regardless of how many points they have acumulated since their last promotion. (For instance, it takes 25 points to go from CREWMAN to PO3. Then an additional 25 points to go from PO3 to PO2. If a crewmember is at the CREWMAN rank and earns 50 points, he/she will only be promoted to PO3, and his/her points count will go back to zero.) If you have any questions about any of the ranks or promotions, please do not hesitate to ask your DC, XO, or CO.
Besides earning a promotion by the points requirements, a crew member can earn a promotion by holding a position on the JURASSIC for at least six months. This type of promotion is given only once regardless of how long the position is held after the promotion. Positions include being a DC, Project Leader (long term projects only), Treasurer, Records Officer, Historian, Newsletter editor, etc.
NOTE: Just because you are on the JURASSIC and are given a starting rank, doesn't mean you have to participate in the promotions system. If, like some members, you prefer not to be promoted, you will not be forced to turn in Promotions Report Sheets. You can not be promoted if you do not want to. Many members prefer to stay at their starting rank or to obtain a rank they like and stay there during their entire service on the JURASSIC. So whether you get promoted or not is entirely up to you. The officers will not try to force you into participating in any program on the JURASSIC that you do not want to participate in. The choice is yours.
