Standard Operating Procedure (Science)

Jump to: navigation, search

Foreword: Job SOP should not be a considered a checklist of conditions to fire someone over, and should not be rigidly followed to the letter in detriment of circumstances and context. As always, SOP can be malleable if the situation so requires, and the decision to punish a crewmember for breaching it ultimately falls onto the relevant Head of Staff, for Department Members, or Captain, for the Head of Staff.

This is the page for Standard Operating Procedure for Science.

For a list of regular SOP, or for other departments, see the main page for Standard Operating Procedure.

Code Blue


1. Guidelines 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 carry over from Code Green;

2. The Roboticist is permitted to construct Combat Mechs without prior consent, but must deliver them to the Armory for storage. Failure to comply will result in the Combat Mech being destroyed. Exception is made for extreme emergencies, such as a Blob Organism or Nuclear Operatives, where the Roboticist may pilot the Mech themselves. However, even in these circumstances, the Mech must be delivered to the Armory after the emergency is over. The Research Director is placed under the same restrictions;

Code Red


1. Guidelines 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 carry over from Code Green;

2. All Guidelines carry over from Code Blue

Generic scientist.pngScientist

Code Green


1. Scientists are not permitted to bring Grenades outside of Science;

2. Scientists are not permitted to bring Toxins Bombs outside of Science. Exception is made if the Toxins Bomb is handed to Mining, as it can be useful for mining operations;

3. While not mandatory, it is highly recommended that Scientists give a prior warning before a Toxins Test. This must be done via the Common Communication Channel, with at least ten (10) seconds between the warning and detonation;

4. Scientists are not permitted to use Telescience equipment to acquire objects, items or personnel they do not have access to;

5. Scientists are, however, permitted to use Telescience equipment to recover dead personnel, provided Medical cannot reach them;

6. Scientists must, at all times, keep live slimes and Golden Extract-based lifeforms inside Xenobiology pens, except when transporting them to new cells. Peaceful Golden Extract lifeforms may be released with the express permission of the Research Director. In addition, injecting plasma into Golden Extract is strictly forbidden;

7. Scientists are not permitted to bring Anomalous Artifacts aboard the station without express verbal consent from the Research Director. Regular Xenoarchaeological artifacts are permitted;

8. Scientists are not permitted to construct the Portable Wormhole Generator without express permission from the Research Director. In addition, Scientists are not to hand out Weapon Lockboxes to any non-Security or non-Command personnel without express permission from the Head of Security;
