Security Command Codes

Each crew member of the USS Storm is assigned a security code. While not intended to be a secret password, the command code serves its purpose by allowing the computer to conduct a more detailed analysis on each officer's voice by comparing it to a record of the officer saying the code aloud; the is much more precise than a standard voice print.

The command code consists of three parts: the officer's last name, a greek letter and a number. For example, "stele-alpha-2;" the greek letter is in reference to the officer's department or area of service (for example command or security), while the following number is in reference to the officer's level of security clearance, determined by their rank.

This is the following system used to assign command codes to personnel.
