So, this has been on my mind for quite a while now, but I either forget to ask or there’s not a good RP opportunity.
Now it’s a time of war, and I think it’s a great opportunity to ask.
How can one join the NSD?19/06/2016 at 18:14 #11888
What does the NSD actually do? And does it need an Encyclopedia entry when that’s determined?19/06/2016 at 18:20 #11890
I’ve seen it active a few times. I’m interested in it for RP purposes.
If it exists, it should be in the all-encompasing Encyclopaedia, right?19/06/2016 at 18:32 #11897MatsiyanParticipant
NSD was only talked about as an RP concept during the traitors within storyline.19/06/2016 at 18:36 #11899
It would make sense in wartime too. And (maybe a slight bias here) everything needs to be in the Encyclopedia. Knowledge is power. It’s a question of what text to put in, and what category/heading/subheading. Since I’m not a librarian in RL, I’m making things up as I go along…19/06/2016 at 19:09 #11907Leonard HallParticipant
The NSD is the internal security force of the Division itself (an overarching internal affairs unit would be the slightly unrelated Security Services Bureau) which played the role as the primary force against the traitors during the USF arc. NSD operatives’ jobs mainly revolve around vetting trouble and also general peacekeeping during downtime.
Chuck Finley was the elected head of the NSD force, and he appointed a few subordinates.

Now I’m not even sure if I wanna join. I don’t want to be a “rat” or a “snitch”. 😛19/06/2016 at 23:23 #11920
That’s right, Chuck Finley was in charge of NSD, I had forgotten. It’s still unclear to me, however, what NSD personnel would do, in character. Vetting trouble sounds rather nebulous. What access do they have? What authority do they have? Asking for the Encyclopedia, you know. 🙂20/06/2016 at 08:01 #11941Leonard HallParticipant
This won’t hold during peacetime/downtime, but during times of suspected or confirmed sabotage/spy activity, NSD personnel have the authority to tap communications of and observe officers to ensure everyone is on the same team. If NSD knows someone is a spy, they have authority, once the proper paperwork is pushed through the Judge Advocate General’s office, to conduct an arrest on a suspect and begin questioning. NSD also has authority to order psychological evaluations on potentially mentally compromised personnel (like Expree when that alien device took him over).
// Some of the stuff NSD did to sniff out the spies during the arc.20/06/2016 at 14:30 #11944
That’s exactly the kind of detail that can go into the Encyclopedia, thanks.20/06/2016 at 19:26 #11960
NSD entry now in the Encyclopedia Draft document, let me know if you think it needs any changes or additions.20/06/2016 at 21:22 #11967
Can we actually see the Draft?
Also, can anyone clearly tell me what the job of NSD is? Is it someone that sits in the bar, drinking with everyone, but actually trying to find out a spy? Or is it someone that’s more like a marine corpse when called upon? Because I was aiming for the latter.20/06/2016 at 21:44 #11969
I don’t know if that needs special permission, I didn’t think so. There should be a link to the doc, but I’ll let @admin confirm. Here’s the text I put in, anyway:
Naval Security Department, (TSN)
During times of suspected or confirmed sabotage/spy activity, NSD personnel have the authority to tap communications of and observe officers to determine loyalty and discover any enemy agents. If NSD personnel have proof that someone is a spy, they have authority, once the proper paperwork goes through the Judge Advocate General’s office, to arrest the suspects and begin questioning. The NSD also has authority to order psychological evaluations on potentially mentally compromised personnel: for example, Cmdr. Expree when he was psychically taken over by the Cosmic Icosahedron’s low-level psi-field during the Schroedinger Incident.
I think you mean Marine Corps. A marine corpse would be a sea-zombie, if it were capable of action… (Crazy English language)20/06/2016 at 21:48 #11971
So the above led me to add an entry for the Schroedinger Incident. I am looking for more detail so that I can justify an entry for the Cosmic Icosahedron.
Making history, one paragraph at a time.
Also, note the “tap communications” bit. Mundy feels entirely justified in her use of the Memory Palace.
