Foreword: Job SOP should not be a considered a checklist of conditions to fire someone over, and should not be rigidly followed to the letter in detriment of circumstances and context. As always, SOP can be malleable if the situation so requires, and the decision to punish a crewmember for breaching it ultimately falls onto the relevant Head of Staff, for Department Members, or Captain, for the Head of Staff.

This is the page for Standard Operating Procedure for Service.

For a list of regular SOP, or for other departments, see the main page for Standard Operating Procedure.

Generic chef.pngChef

1. The Chef is not permitted to use the corpses of deceased personnel for meat unless given specific permission from the Chief Medical Officer. Exception is made for changelings and any other executed personnel not slated for Borgifications;

2. The Chef is permitted to use Ambrosia and other such light narcotics in the production of food;

3. The Chef must produce at least three (3) dishes of any food within twenty (20) minutes. Failure to do so is to be considered a breach of Standard Operating Procedure;

4. The Chef is not permitted to leave the kitchen unattended for longer than fifteen (15) minutes if there is no food available for consumption. Exception is made if there are no ingredients, or if the Kitchen is unusable/a hazard zone


1. The Bartender is not permitted to carry their shotgun outside the bar. However, they may obtain permission from the Head of Security to shorten the barrel for easier transportation. Shortening the barrel without authorization is grounds for confiscation of the Bartender's shotgun;

2. The Bartender is permitted to use their shotgun on unruly bar patrons in order to throw them out if they are being disruptive. They are not, however, permitted to apply lethal, or near-lethal force;

3. The Bartender is exempt from legal ramifications when dutifully removing unruly (ie, overtly hostile) patrons from the Bar, provided, of course, they followed Guideline 2;

4. The Bartender is not permitted to possess regular (ie, lethal) shotgun ammunition. Only beanbag slugs are permitted. Exception is made during major emergencies, such as Nuclear Operatives or Blob Organisms;

5. The Bartender has full permission to forcefully throw out anyone who climbs over the bar counter without permission, up to and including personnel who may have access to the side windoor. They are not, however, permitted to do so if the person in question uses the door, or is on an active investigation;

6. The Bartender is permitted to ask for monetary payment in exchange for drinks

Generic botanist.pngBotanist

Generic clown.pngClown

1. The Clown is permitted to, and freely exempt from any consequences of, slipping literally anyone, assuming it does not interfere with active Security duty, or in any way endangers other personnel (such as slipping a Paramedic who’s dragging a wounded person to Medbay);

2. The Clown is not permitted to remove their Clown Shoes or Clown Mask. Exception is made if removing them is truly necessary for the sake of their clowning performance (such as being a satire of bad clowns);

3. The Clown is not permitted to hold anything but water in their Sunflower;

4. The Clown is not permitted to use Space Lube on anything. Exception is made during major emergencies involving hostile humanoids, whereby use of Space Lube may be condoned to help the crew;

5. The Clown must legitimately attempt to be funny and/or entertaining at least once every fifteen (15) minutes. A simple pun will suffice. Continuously slipping people for no reason does not constitute humour. The joke is supposed to be funny for everyone;

6. The Clown is permitted to, and freely exempt from any consequences of, performing any harmless prank that does not directly conflict with the above Guidelines

Generic mime.pngMime

1. The Mime is not permitted to talk, under any circumstance whatsoever. A Mime who breaks the Vow of Silence is to be stripped of their rank post haste;

Using any permanently attached Null Rod variants on any personnel outside of these conditions is grounds to have the relevant arm removed and replaced with a robotic prosthetic;

3. The Chaplain may not actively discriminate against any personnel on the grounds that it is a religious tenet of their particular faith;

4. The Chaplain may not perform funerals for any personnel that have since been cloned;

5. The Chaplain may, however, freely conduct funerals for non-cloneable/revivable personnel. All funerals must be concluded with the use of the Mass Driver or Crematorium
