2. "RE: UF Universe Trivia"
In response to message #0
 
   In the alternate-universe Starfleet of which he was a distinguished member, Gryphon is best remembered for a particular innovation he pioneered in starship crewing: the inclusion of a qualified medical corpsman on the standing bridge watchbill.

Before he took over the Invincible, whether there was anyone qualified in emergency medicine on the bridge at any given time was just a matter of chance. If there happened to be a member of the watch who had taken some voluntary medical training beyond the rudimentary first-responder stuff every Starfleet member gets, in addition to whatever else he or she was there to do (or the CMO happened to be up there taunting the science officer), great; if not, sucked to be everyone if an emergency suddenly unfolded. Midway through the ship's first five-year, he and his CMO published a report to Starfleet Medical detailing the results achieved by posting a corpsman to the bridge full-time for the preceding 18 months. A regulation mandating the practice on all starships of frigate class or higher went out the following year.

because seriously, why didn't starships have that?
