The Command Staff lead by the Captain is in charge of making sure the ship and crew adheres to STARFLEET’s regulations and standards. Overseeing projects, issuing awards, granting promotions, hosting games, making reports, and planning missions are some of the tasks the Command Staff performs.

Commander Ryker
The Intelligence Officer is the master of stealth and gathering intelligence. Their main duty is to protect the commanding officers against attempted mutinies or piracies.

Graduated top of his class at the Galactic Empire, but the constant fear of being choked for no reason led to him joining Starfleet. Boothby at STARFLEET Academy taught him to channel his negativity by using the ancient techniques of Coruscant. This turn of events led him to his current career as the Nomads Chief Intelligence Officer. The Commander does not trust replicators and can be often found snacking on leaves in the hydroponics bay. His hobbies include shopping and gaming.

Lieutenant Commander Phillips
Lieutenant Commander PhillipsCHIEF SCIENCE/MEDICAL OFFICER
Chief Science/Medical Officer- includes medical, veterinarian, sciences including but not limited to exobiology, geoscience, etc.

The Science Officer’s primary responsibility is analyzing, observing and theorizing explanations for strange or seemingly unexplainable circumstances in such a way as to provide answers.

Lieutenant Phillips is over 10,000 years old and knew all of the Greek gods. This gave her an abundance of time to figure out that she prefers feline company over all other life forms, and pineapples do indeed belong on pizza. This last fact was heavily debated among the greatest minds in science through-out the ages, and the Lieutenant was present to witness it all. It’s rumoured that if you turn the lights off, the Commander glows an eerie blue colour.

Lieutenant Reiss
The Chief Engineer is in charge of keeping the warp core purring like a contented kitten. The Chief runs the Engineering Department and sends ensigns to fix broken replicators.

A lifelong Sci-Fi/Star Trek fan, Lieutenant Reiss was heavily influenced as a child to work in the technology field. He developed a passion for computer systems, and the interaction those systems have between people and technology. The Lieutenant now manages a large computer and network infrastructure for a company on Earth. He found the USS Nomad in the year 2020 (that which shall not be named), and after a long and animated conversation with Captain Ehl over a few pints of Romulan Ale, Lieutenant Reiss agreed to his current role, which he holds with great pride and passion.

Lieutenant Mitson
Communications, environmental controls, and sensors are all overseen by the Chief of Operations. They are tasked with performing sensor sweeps and planetary scans.

Our Chief of Operations is also our Webmaster, in charge of website design and development for our website. If you have an update for the website you should contact our Chief of Operations or your department head.

His passions are outdoor adventures like canoeing and hiking, graphic design, photography and stargazing, wishing he was on a starship out there exploring distant galaxies.

Lieutenant Walter
Lieutenant WalterCHIEF OF SECURITY
The duties of the Chief of Security include keeping order aboard the ship and ensuring all shuttle bay doors and airlocks are securely closed. They are also in charge of away mission safety such as being aware of inclement weather and general safest route.

When not on duty, he enjoys spending time with the cadets, helping them learn and learning from them. He can also be found practising his sword and open-hand katas in the holodeck. He enjoys playing board games as well as video games and collecting G.I. Joes, ancient timepieces, and knives.
