Question about the most appropriate Sensor Ops focus

Firstly, apologies if this has been asked and answered already, but I can’t find it anywhere.

Is there a ‘standard’ Focus for starship Sensor Operations, in the same way as there is Helm Operations, Shipboard Tactical Systems, Transporters & Replicators etc.? Obviously there is no exhaustive list of Focuses and they can be most anything, but where there are standardised ones referenced in the rules or NPC listings I’ve tried to use them in the same way. It seems odd that I’ve not seen a reference to a Sensors focus, and one of my players wondered if it could be covered by ‘Computers’ (which after discussion we agreed wouldn’t be the case).

Has this come up in other people’s games, and what do you use - or have I just missed something in the existing books?

Yes, the “sensor operations” Focus. The Science Division book lists this as an example.


Thank you. In hindsight I should have checked there more thoroughly.
