HMS Demon Ship’s Order 1707-04
To: All officers and enlisted personnel of HMS Demon (CLAC-62)
From: Captain (SG) Sir Geoffrey Strayer, Commanding Officer
RE: Billet & Rating Assignment
By my hand and the authority vested in me as commanding officer, HMS Demon, I hereby make the following announcements:
From the beginning of manned flight, information management has been of the utmost importance. As these earliest atmospheric craft gained complexity, the importance of data management only increased. With the advent of space travel, and the human diaspora, data management has become arguably the most vital aspect of a ship’s existence – even the smallest hyper-capable ships need this department. On a ship of war, Data Systems Technicians are responsible for keeping the computers that literally keep us alive running. This is a rating and billet that requires officers and crew with the utmost dedication and skill. Our lives depend on it.
Having well and truly demonstrated this dedication and skill, and having completed the prescribed courses of study, Spacer 1st Class Rick Waterson, RMN-4234-16, is hereby billeted as, and assigned the rating of, Data Systems Technician, Her Majesty’s Starship Demon, CLAC-62.
Spacer Waterson is instructed repair to the Data Systems offices, and assume the duties assigned therein.
Well Done.
In the name of Queen Elizabeth III
