How are we going to go about character generation? What do I need? I'm presuming that since we're actually command crew, we're not going to be the equivalent of 1st level (if we are, what does that say about the rest of the crew?!)

Science Officer - think T'Pol or Spock. Data also sort of fits this role in TNG, but by that era, they're really isn't a dedicated science officer anymore. Instead, they're Operations officers which merges a crapload of things. In DS9, Jadzia Dax initially covers this.
Dedicated First/Executive Officer - Riker or Chakotay. Note that only in TOS and ENT do we see the XO also having another job and in both cases, they were Vulcans (Spock and T'Pol.) Even in the original pilot, with CAPT Pike, his first officer ("Number One") seemed to just be the XO and not hold another job.
Chief Engineer - Trip Tucker, Montgomery Scott, Geordi LaForge, CPO Miles O'Brien (for the most part), Belanna Torres
Chief Medical Officer - Phlox, Leonard McCoy, Beverly Crusher, Julian Bashir, the EMT
Helmsman - Travis Mayweather, Hikaru Sulu, Tom Paris. Data also sort of fits this role in TNG, but by that era, they're really isn't a dedicated science officer anymore. Instead, they're Operations officers which merges a crapload of things.
Navigator - Travis Mayweather, Pavel Chekov.
Security/Tactical/Armoury Officer - Malcolm Reed, Worf, Tuvok. In TOS, Chekov acts as WEPS in addition to NAV.
Communications Officer - Hoshi Sato, Nyota Uhura. Ops generally cover this role.
Counselor - Deanna Troi, Dax 2. Don't really think anyone else has one. McCoy might fulfill this role in TOS, or the 1701 might have had a dedicated one and we never saw him/her
