Made up some of the longest-serving and highest-ranking active members of SFC the Admiralty Board are responsible for the organisation, direction and day-to-day running of the Club in general as well as encouraging and nurturing the Command Support Staff and Unit Commanding Officers to maintain the Star Trek image and the fantasy image of Starfleet Command as a believable Fleet in the image of the organisation seen in the TV Shows and Movies.
DIRECTOR OF FLEET OPERATIONS
Admiral Mark Mitchell
The Director of Operations (DOPS) oversees all aspects of the daily operation of Starfleet: their duties include the chairing and moderation of the Admiralty Board, overseeing Unit Operations, matters of procedure and any and all matters that have a fleet-wide impact.
Admiral Mitchell first showed his talents by rising from the Engineering decks to Command of the near-mythical Kronos One, before serving as CO to two incarnations of the record-breaking USS Demeter along with flying the desks of Deputy Director of Operations, Head of Fleet Engineering and Starbase 44 at various times in his career.
