Star Army Cook

The Ship's Cook is part of an important, time-honored profession. Feeding the crew properly is vital to both crew health and crew morale. A ship's cook is a hard worker. She has to get up early and on smaller ships may be the only cook aboard. Cooks wear uniforms with yellow panels.

Star Army cooks receive their combat training with a special emphasis on close-quarters combat.

Examples from Roleplay

Hanako arrived in the wardroom with her hair still damp from the shower and went to see what Mango had made for breakfast. Today's meal was a build-your-own biscuit buffet with Southern-style fluffy biscuits, rounds of scrambled eggs, country ham, bacon, sausage patties, and cheese. There was also several fruit jellies available, some of which were imported. After building a breakfast sandwich and a jelly biscuit Hanako filled a glass of orange juice and sat at the head of the table to await the others.

When Suzume arrived in the wardroom, she could hear the sounds of Lime cooking in the galley. There was the sizzle of oil and a mild smell of freshly cooked fish, carried by steam from the bubbling water of a boiling pot. But dinner had been delayed and the food wasn't out yet. Still, Suzume could see the impromptu meal's menu on a wall display:


  • Lime Tilapia Fillets
  • Ceasar Salad
  • Baked Potato with Cheese
  • Baked Apples

Hanako returned to the wardroom. Lime and Mango were working in the kitchen, with Lime busy with dinner and Mango working on cookies and treats. Tonight's menu was a good one: chipotle salmon with jasmine rice and fresh steamed broccoli (and optional cheese). Also available was fried calamari with diced limes and key lime pie for dessert.
