Uniform Policy

From UFStarfleet Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


United Federation Starfleet uses customized uniforms based on it’s virtual timeline. Upon the completion of your UF Starfleet application in a metaverse, a set of uniforms will be issued to you according to your Branch of choice and rank, consistent with this era. Each uniform has a specific purpose and occasion when it may be worn.

This policy is the guideline to when and how a uniform can and cannot be worn. It is expected of every UFS Officer or Enlisted member to follow this policy when on-duty, off duty and at official functions.

Failure to abide by the following policy may result in disciplinary action taken against you and a permanent reprimand marked on your UF Starfleet record.

UF STARFLEET TITLERS

United Federation Starfleet makes use of Titlers in the Metaverse to denote a person's rank, Branch, position and duty. The titlers are a required component of the UFS Uniform. The following format is how to correctly display this information:

Rank | Branch
Duty | Position

e.g. Captain | Command
SS Peedy Thor | Commanding Officer

United Federation Starfleet does NOT utilise any other form of representation in the titler.

  • Rank is denoted by name only not symbols
  • Only Primary Position is to be listed
  • Species may be listed if not apparent
  • Roleplay Name may be included if different from display name

An Example of additional information that can be utilized

Andrew Bacon
Captain | Command
SS Peedy Thor | Commanding Officer
