How familiar are you with command positions?
I’ve played for many rounds as XO and SL, even if the hours don’t appear like I have that much; Along with other instances where I have commanded as aCO. I’m very much confident with using the apparatus of command, Issuing orders, and making good use of my rights as a Commander.

Why did your character decide to become the CO of a ship?
Having been employed on USCM ships for years now, and finally sticking to the last ship he was embarked in for long quite long as the Captain, he felt absolutely confident in having this position, and thought it was time for him to finally have his hands on his own ship after chatting with Captains and Majors on a meeting and receiving appraisal. And so, he started giving his all, not only in operations, but on absolutely everything, most literally grinding as much as he could to show his skills.
How did your character attain the position of CO?
Through merit and good reputation with HC and officers of his rank too, along with good timing with the keel laying of the Atlantic on a South American shipyard’s greatest venture with a contract directly with the USCM. A good person in general -Even if he lacks the patience for the small things-, charismatic and with the determination and resourcefulness necessary to be a Commanding Officer in the Herculis branch, he was able to use a lot of his knowledge and interest to approach those around the administration of the construction of the Atlantic. And so, he set his little plan in motion, first, getting promoted to CO of a small ship that was without a CO for the following months, and then later assigned to the Atlantic while it was still in it’s space trials. Though, because of his bad relation with the Company, the Atlantic ended up getting delayed for some months, just enough time for him to be sent on some really tough tours of duty before he finally settled back on the Atlantic.
Provide a short story of your CO.
When do you believe it’s appropriate to pardon a prisoner?
It feels appropriate to make use of pardons only in cases where the release of the prisoner is needed for the operation to succeed, and they are trustworthy people, in the sense of that person not causing further issues or going against the operation directly or indirectly. In contrast, there are cases where making use of it is absolutely unneeded and unwarranted even if right, and letting the timer run it’s full course, even if for something small, normally is the right choice.
Give some examples of when you would or would not use pardon.
In the rare occasions that I would use of a pardon, they’s have these reasons:
A.)In case of the low count of urgently needed personnel.
B.)In isolated cases of possible miscommunication, for example, between a department head and an MT getting vendors unanchored to drag groundside, getting brigged because of that. In this case if it is something too minor a pardon could be set out to get the MT right back to the roundstart rush.
And below, an example of where I would NOT use pardons:
-A friend of mine is playing MP, and was jailed for some lawful reason. They ask me really nicely to pardon them of their crime so that they can return to their duty, and that they have learned their lesson.
When do you believe it’s appropriate to use a Battlefield Execution?
COs must carry out Battlefield Executions to maintain order in case of breakdown of the same. When there is danger directly to you or your peers, B.E.ing the marine that is causing it is warranted. Keeping the respect between you and the enlisted personnel is also needed, and those that harass you can not only receive the threat of a B.E., but on continued harassment, can receive a lawful B.E. . This applies to officers too, even if much rarer.
C.O.s mustn’t abuse this however. Every act of B.E. carries with itself a heavy weight and threats also. Order cannot be maintained with the authority of B.E.s if they lose their meaning through excess.
Give some examples of when you would or would not use Battlefield Execution.
Situations where I would make use of the B.E.:
A) An active shooter enters the CIC, claiming to be CLF and shooting everyone inside.
B) A serial murderer freed himself from brig.
Situations where I would NOT make use of the B.E.:
A) Executing someone due to be executed while in custody and on green alert.
B) Out of spite in cases of DASO
