Starfleet Code of Conduct


ARTICLE I

I am a member of Starfleet, fighting in the forces
which guard the Federation and our way of life. I am
prepared to give my life in their defense.

ARTICLE II

I will never surrender of my own free will. If in
command, I will never surrender the members of my
command while they still have the means to resist.

ARTICLE III

If I am captured I will continue to resist by all
means available. I will make every effort to escape
and to aid others to escape. I will accept neither
parole nor special favors from the enemy.

ARTICLE IV

If I become a prisoner of war, I will keep faith with
my fellow prisoners. I will give no information nor
take part in any action which might be harmfull to my
comrades. If I am senior, I will take command. If
not, I will obey lawful orders of those appointed
over me and will back them in every way.

ARTICLE V

When questioned, should I become a prisoner of war, I
am required to give name, rank, service number, and
date of birth. I will evade answering further
questions to the utmost of my ability. I will make no
oral or written statements disloyal to the Federation
or its allies or harmful to their cause.

ARTICLE VI

I will never forget that I am a member of Starfleet,
fighting for freedom, responsible for my actions, and
dedicated to the principles which made the Federation
free.
