Greetings Officers of the TSN,
I have just completed the update to the Science Officer's section of the Officers Handbook. This has been released as a stand-alone handbook, in the same way that I released the Engineering Officer's Handbook. It has been uploaded to the handbook pages on the wiki for officers to access (link below signature).
Content includes giving detailed status reports to the captain, as well as the importance of reporting contacts and prioritising scans. It would also make suitable reading for captains, giving ideas on how to employ the science officer more extensively. I have also posted on my blog (link below signature) details of some of the additional content included within the handbook.
