Star Trek: At The Edge of Empire
Choose Your Starship and Structure
One of your crew’s first decisions will be picking which starship of the available variants your crew is part of, as well as its name. (And perhaps a bit of service history.)

Additionally, some time should be spent considering how command will play out. Is one character the captain or XO? Do you all democratically share the CO character? Do the CO and XO die in the midst of the first episode, and let the natural process decide?
If a hierarchy among characters does exist, please remember that this is a game – and there is no hierarchy among players. Any CO/XO character should allow the other crew members flexibility to pursue their goals, objectives, etc. (Within reason.) With power comes responsibility, please be flexible.
To put it another way, if you’re in charge, you’re assuming some of the responsibility for others fun.
For example, if the CO character hates Klingons, and someone wants to play a Klingon… come up with a reason that the CO does not hate/tolerates this Klingon.
