The Sciences Department is responsible for the collection and analysis of scientific data. This could be collected during missions, dropped off by other vessels or from research and independent studies. As Kepler Station has been designated a science station, she has a large compliment of diverse Starfleet and Civilian scientists aboard.
- Stellar Cartography - Mapping of all spatial phenomena, and the implications of such phenomena. This can also include an element of Astrometrics, which entails maintaining, correcting and producing new stellar maps.
- Biology - The study of exobiology, botany / agrobiology, zoology, molecular biology and other life sciences (see also Medical).
- Social Sciences - The study of sociology, anthropology, archaeology, psychology, political science and history (see also Medical).
- Physics - The study of matter, energy, space and time, as they relate to the forces that run the universe, such as gravity, electromagnetism, radiation and hyperspace.
- Chemistry - The study of materials and substances, and the reactions of these with one another in real space.
- Temporal Sciences - The study of the space-time continuum through observation and theorisation of temporal mechanics, temporal physics, and temporal anomalies.
