A counselor is a Starship officer responsible for the emotional well-being of the ship's crew. A Counselor's duties included providing individual guidance and advice to crew members, as well as periodic crew performance evaluations, usually performed with the ship's executive officer or other department heads. A counselor is also expected to provide advice to the ship's captain on command decisions.
