From sensor readings to figuring out a way to enter the strange spacial anomaly, the science department is responsible for recording data, testing new ideas out, and making discoveries.

Summary

The Starfleet science officer combines a capacity for analyzing technical information with an ability to communicate it in terms that non-specialized personnel can understand. The science officer is responsible for overseeing scientific investigations, and for providing the captain with data that may be required to make command decisions. The relative importance of this role differs according to the nature of the vessel or station to which the science officer is assigned; a Starfleet vessel primarily designated as a research vessel, has a very high concentration of scientists aboard compared to ships designed primarily for exploration. Science officers are often called upon to analyze and explain newly encountered phenomena and technology, especially if it threatens the safety of the crew or ship.
