Your conduct on the bridge of the Dauntless, combined with previous disciplinary records, serves as sufficient grounds to move forward with formal discipline. As such, after the aforementioned review of the attached adjutant’s report and additional investigation of your service record, this command has elected to charge you with one (1) count of Conduct Unbecoming an Officer of the Federation.
The following disciplinary actions will be taken:
You are hereby placed on probationary status pending a Command Observation. This observation will be carried out by myself, Admiral Bishop, or Captain Morton. A unsatisfactory observation will result in immediate reassignment.
You will audit the Starfleet Academy course ‘Introduction to Officer Etiquette’ and must pass the resulting assessment. Failure will result in immediate reassignment.
This notice will be permanently attached to your Starfleet personnel file and made available for review by any future promotions boards, awards committees, or superior officers to whom an understanding of your service record is relevant.
Your actions have jeopardized your standing and reputation within the Federation and potentially the standing and reputation of the Federation within the galactic community. You are strongly advised to consider the implications of your actions, and to understand that further violations may endanger your career in Starfleet.
You have 48 hours to acknowledge receipt and understanding, or to dispute the claims by filing a request for trial by court martial. If you request court martial, limits on the severity of punishment are waived, and if found guilty, you may be subject to severe disciplinary actions such as demotion, discharge from Starfleet service, or incarceration.
