Second Officer: Commander J. Taylor
Commander Taylor currently serves as Chief Operations Officer, Services Division Chief, and Second Officer on the USS Narragansett.
Commander Taylor joined STARFLEET in 2017 and is on his first billet here on the USS Narragansett. Taylor was promoted to Lieutenant and appointed Chief Engineer after showing his mettle in rebuilding the ship’s computer core from scratch after the USS Narragansett had an encounter with a race of microscopic alien beings who took exception to the ship having a computer that looked delicious and ate the primary memory core.
In 2017 he was promoted again to Lieutenant Commander and appointed Second Officer when Commander Anzaldi was officially appointed as Executive Officer. In early 2018 he was promoted to Commander, shortly after the USS Narragansett became the Flagship of the 4th Fleet, Zone 1 of Starfleet, Sol Sector Command (S3C). In order to better serve the needs of the Ship, Commander Taylor requested a transfer to Operations which is a better fit for his skill-set.
Commander Taylor currently serves as the USS Narragansett’s webmaster and as the Assistant Director of the College of US History at STARFLEET Academy and is assisting S3C in developing their Academy. Commander Taylor has been Certified by STARFLEET Academy for all levels of Command. Taylor is also a licensed Amateur Radio Operator K1JST.
Commander Taylor is also married to our Chief Medical Officer Commander D. Taylor and has one son, Junior Cadet O. Taylor. Their crew quarters are in Coventry, RI.
Prior to joining STARFLEET Commander Taylor worked at several planet-side educational and news organizations on Earth serving as their head of technology.
Planet side experience includes:
Director of Technology at Exeter-West Greenwich Regional Schools
Owner/Operator of DDE ATM & Entertainment Services
Former Senior Network Administrator at Westerly Public Schools
Former Assistant Director of Technology at WLNE-TV ABC6
Second Officer’s Log
