The Captain

The Captain is the ship’s Master. All departments must answer to the Captain. Every crew member strives to please the Captain and carry out his orders. When you join the ship for the first time, introduce yourself to the Captain. Let him know what position you have onboard and that you are going to be the best crew member onboard his ship. 

The Captain’s right hand man is the Staff Captain. He is the one who would take over the ship if the Captain became incapacitated while at sea. The Staff Captain is also the “sheriff” onboard the ship. If you fail to comply with ship rules and regulations, he will be the one you will report to at Captain’s court.
