Star Trek Civilian Rules for the FASA Role-Playing System


Creating a Civilian Character

Determine attributes and background skills as usual.

Then have the character attend one or two universities. All depending on the experience level, of course. The option of attending the Daystrom Institute is available.

Also, the character could be created as a Starfleet officer and then resign at a certain rank. Just proceed with civilian career path after resignation.

Career Path

Number of positions is rolled as normal. Although, a player may wish to have more experience so they may roll a second time. Add the 2 rolls together. If the player is making a character whose race has a long lifespan more rolls can be added, but please consult with your GM.

Civilian Career Path Chart

Civilian positions are rolled as normal using the OER from the basic rule book. Same modifiers apply. 

Public positions are the most desirable. 

Starfleet positions mean the character is a civilian contractor. 

Private means the character is employed by a for-profit corporation. 

Length of the position is determined as normal. If the player feels the character would not move on to another position quickly, up to 4 length rolls can be applied to one position.

There are rules already in the Trader Captains & Merchant Princes supplement, either 1st or 2nd edition, that deal with this. With a little tweaking, you can make a moon shuttle conductor and such.

What is missing are people who don't normally have careers travelling in space like merchant traders: academics, journalists, assistant/significan other of a main PC, etc.

I know. I created these rules to flow better with some of others I've created. Mostly, in hopes of quicker character generation for my player group.

I agree. I've tried to that some with these rules and also the universities I've created. I need to work on it though.
