assessment team

If a contact team reports that a planet is interested in joining the Federation, the membership officer sends an assessment team, which includes the members of the contact team.  They land on the planet, and speak to its leaders, telling them about the Federation, and learning about the planet.  If both sides agree that the planet should join, the assessment team gives the invitation to the leaders.

Tony and I joined Angela’s assessment team visit to Eppe 4.  See Report 22.

Angela told Hais and me about her work as assessment team leader.  See Report F.
