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 harmful 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.
