FROM CAPT Thiessen
SUBJ Notice of Reprimand
You have been witnessed in official communications transcripts addressing a superior officer improperly and with disrespect. It is the decision of this command that your actions constitute two counts of Insubordination.
The following disciplinary actions will be taken:
- Effective Stardate 93729.5(23 Sept, 2416), you are placed on a probationary period of three weeks that will be scheduled to end Stardate 93786.8(14 Oct, 2416). During this probationary period no complaints are to be received by Command in regards to your conduct as an officer. If a complaint is received and found to be valid, this will be grounds for immediate dismissal and your case will be remitted to a JAG officer for further disciplinary action.
- You are required to check in during your shift with Lieutenant Kermit at shift start, midpoint and end in order to ensure you are holding to your schedule and departmental duties. Both the Chief of Operations and the Assistant Chief of Operations will be permitted authority to deal with a situation if one arises in regards to your behavior in the absence of myself, Commander Caspius or Commander Kozath. They have been contacted with expectations and made aware of this scenario.
- You are required to amend your prior communication to the department to accurately relay your acting title to the department.
- 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.
