RMMM Preparation

  1. Create a roster for the proposed ship described in Bulding a Roster for a New Ship
  2. Find out what cartel your Merchant vessel will fly under, work with BuShips to determine a name fitting with that cartel.
  3. Ensure the command triad members are eligible for the required ranks for their positions on the given hull size. All RMMM vessels require a Master (C-17) and Certified Bosun (C-8), and vessels above a Courier require a First Officer (C-16). For vessels requiring extra officers (Medium Freighter and up), you will need members eligible for fourth officers (C-12)
  4. If the prospective CO of the ship is not currently serving as the CO of a ship, they will need a Letter of Recommendation or Statement of Counseling as detailed in BuShips Directive 1903-13. In order to minimize delays, work with your echelon leadership (TG, TF, or Fleet CO) to get the necessary document submitted at the same time, or as soon as possible thereafter, to buships@trmn.org.
  5. Ensure the Commissioning Request form is filled out correctly. The most common issue is not separating enlisted members and officers into the correct areas on the form. NOTE: Members who are being promoted to Fourth Officer in order for the crew to meet the minimum number of officers for the hull size should be listed in the Officer section of the form. Forms filled out incorrectly will be rejected.

RMACS Preparation

  1. Create a roster for the proposed ship or station described in Building a Roster for a New Ship
  2. Find out what area of control that you will be stationed under, and coordinate with Buships for a name/station.
  3. Ensure the command triad members are eligible for the required ranks for their positions on the given hull size.
  4. If the prospective CO of the ship/station is not currently serving as the CO of a ship/station, they will need a Letter of Recommendation or Statement of Counseling as detailed in BuShips Directive 1903-13. In order to minimize delays, work with your echelon leadership (TG, TF, Fleet CO, etc.) to get the necessary document submitted at the same time, or as soon as possible thereafter, to buships@trmn.org.
  5. Ensure the Commissioning Request form is filled out correctly. The most common issue is not separating enlisted members and officers into the correct areas on the form. NOTE: members who are being promoted to Ensign in order for the crew to meet the minimum number of officers for the hull size should be listed in the Officer section of the form. Forms filled out incorrectly will be rejected.

Procedure Summary

  1. Submit the completed Commissioning Request form to buships@trmn.org. If there is a preferred date of commissioning, please note that in the email. At a minimum, allow at least one week for BuShips to work through the process and create the necessary documents. Allow more time if any necessary documents for the Command Review Board are not being submitted at the same time as the Commissioning Request.
    • This form MUST be submitted by the prospective commanding officer per BuShips Directive 1807-01. Any Commissioning Request forms submitted by someone other than the prospective CO of the new ship will be rejected.
  2. A member of the BuShips staff will reply to let the submitter know that the request has been received. This staff member will be the submitter's primary contact through the commissioning process. However, buships@trmn.org should be CCed on every email to help ensure no breakdowns in communication occur.
  3. Any issues identified by the BuShips staff will be relayed to the original submitter and the Fleet CO, where appropriate via email.
  4. On the requested date, or as early as possible, the Third Space Lord, or Deputy Third Space Lord, by direction, will:
    1. Email the prepared documents to the CO of the new ship, the Fleet CO of the affected fleet, the Bureau of Personnel, and Web Services
    2. Post the order on the forums, TRMN Announcements and Orders Facebook page, the affected fleet's Facebook page, and the Bureau of Ships Facebook page.
