MILITARY OPTION: The Romulans as presented in Star Trek are ruthless, cunning, militaristic and proud of their heritage and achievements. Those who wish to experience this aspect of Romulan culture may choose the military option. Members may serve aboard a Ship or Outpost and hold a fictional rank and position.

There are several options for the Romulan Officer:

Ships: The military consists of individual chapters that serve as ships for the Imperial Fleet. Fleet chapters hold monthly meetings and social events, attend special events and participate in community projects. Members of other commands may hold temporary posts on these ships.

Outposts: Members who choose the military option may also join an individual chapter that serves as an Outpost, a military settlement on a planet, moon or other stellar object. Outposts hold monthly meetings and social events, attend special events and participate in community projects. Members of other commands may hold temporary posts on these outposts.

Colonies: A colony falls under the civilian option; however, a military officer may fulfill their tour of duty in a Colony chapter. See civilian option for more information about colonies.

Military members have the option of filling several positions, including Miltary Tactical Operations, Military Logistical Operations, Imperial Fleet Military Intelligence, Imperial Fleet Procurement.

CIVILIAN OPTION: Those interested in this lesser known, but equally respected aspect of Romulan culture may opt for a civilian position. Civilians are the citizens who do not wish to be involved in the military.

Civilians may hold several positions within the Empire, including Diplomatic Corps and Imperial Archives -- but may not hold any military position. Some positions, however, may require a civilian to serve in a military chapter.

Civilian positions are distinguished by a sash worn on formal occasions.

Colonies: Civilians have the honor of joining a colony. Colony members hold monthly meetings and social events, attend special events and participate in community projects. A colony may also include military personnel.

POLITICAL OPTION: Each chapter should have a member of the Diplomatic Corps. These members have the title of Attache and are the primary contact between the Empire and other clubs and therefore must be a member of RSE, Inc. An Attache's duties are to contact other fan clubs and keep the Embassy informed of their activities.

They have power to develop casual alliances and inform various chapters of role-playing challenges made by and to other local clubs. They must keep in mind at all times that these contacts are friendly and any challenges are in fun. Attaches are approved by the Judicial Praetor.

Attaches report to Ambassadors at an Embassy, a fictitious location that serves a real purpose. The Ambassadors are accountable to the Judicial Praetor.

The Romulan Diplomatic Corps can be entered by anyone as a primary or secondary position for military and civilian members.
