Every Nanotrasen crewmember is always issued with an Identification Card, better known as an ID Card. It is one of the most important items someone can have on the station, as this thin and unimposing ID Card is what allows you to get from point A to point B on the station without being buzzed at by doors. It also allows you access to certain computer consoles or other machinery, depending on your access. Your ID contains a variety of personal information, including your name, age, occupation, blood type, and DNA hash.

A person with the rights to access an Identification Computer can edit your ID to add or remove access. It is usually modified by the Captain or Head of Personnel. Additionally, every department head has access to a department management console located in their office. This console can be used to grant or revoke department access, along with hiring or demoting staff.


IDs determine what information people can tell about you from looking at you and for Security Officers determining what job you have, your statuses, and who you are. How you wear(or don't wear your ID) determines this.

If someone wears something that obscures their face in any way, they'll be identified as the name on their ID card, not the person who's behind the mask. Priority takes place when using IDs; if you're holding an ID, doors will focus on the access applied to the card in your hand, instead of the ID on your outfit/PDA. IDs can be kept inside of a PDA, this is useful because it can be used to hide your identity while also being able to access things.


Heads of Staff ID Cards

These are often high-risk items. They provide extended and even full access to all departments. This allows people to enter restricted areas such as the AI Satellite, the Bridge, and a few other key locations.

ID Description

An official-looking ID, straight from Central Command. These are held by Nanotrasen Navy Officers and Special Operations Officers; people paid too much to value your existence. They are all-access, but unless you are the most robust spessman alive you will die trying to take them.

Held by the Magistrate, Blueshield, and Nanotrasen Representative. A sleek, Nanotrasen-themed ID card. All of these have access to the Bridge, but very little access beyond that.
