Does anybody know who outranks who
but who after that????
Geordi , Worf? Does counselor Troy ever get a chance to fly the ship or Beverly Crusher?
CBS (ended 1994)
well under now cicumstances the chain is as staed by other but in times of war if the cpatain and first officer are out of action the security officer can assume comand with the ships doctor consent,so basically the captain can only take charge if the doctor thinks he is ok if not she can appoint or go based on coomand
|As of the end of All Good Things: |
Commander: Riker, Troi, Crusher
Lt. Commander: Data, La Forge
Troi decided to take the bridge officer's test after the encounter with the Quantum Filament (Season 5's 'Disaster'). She passed and was promoted to Commander in season 7's 'Thien Own Self'.
|Dr.Crusher out ranks even Picard,you forgot about this|
^ I don't entirely disagree.
Picard was obviously at the top.
Riker no. 2
Data no. 3
(After she took Bridge Officers Test) Troi no. 4
La Forge No. 5
Worf no. 7
It was never established in a scene in TNG whether after Troi took the Bridge Officers test and made it to Full Commander whether she really outranked him, since he was operations manager and had been second officer for nearly 7 years. There was a jest in "Thine own self" that he'd have to call her "Sir." But that's not necessarily definitive.
La Forge technically being Lieutenant Commander outranked Worf, In Gambit when Data was in Command, Data assigned Worf to be First officer, likely due to him being a Bridge Offcier and more accesible to the position.
Crusher gave Worf orders From time to time, and in fact he said to Jono in Suddenly Human that Doctor Crusher was his superior officer.
The big question is who would be picked to Command in a crisis?
My bet is on Worf, we saw him in charge on the bridge and having it seem more regular in Best of Both Worlds Part 1 and Data's Day. Also in Best of Both Worlds Part 2, Riker after assuming the Captaincy, spoke to Worf directly and made it clear (to me at least) that he considered bumping him up to First Officer.
