There have been some great suggestions here, I would like to add the following :

Security:  Find the hidden bomb ( drill ),  To add to the nuetralize the intruder idea: coordinating security teams and using force fields to corner    and         capture said intruder.  Escort the reluctant emmissary ( someone who is in the habit of ditching their protectors).  Find the emmisaries lost pet ( yes we all hate this one).  Search for the lost item ( datapad, etc ).   Shipboard hand to hand combat tournament.

Engineering:  "Run the diagnostic" run a scan of epuipment of five areas of the ship for any needed maintenance,   Find the cause of a mysteriously overloading eps conduit ( can go hand in hand with the first one).  Routine replacement of worn out conduits/circuit boards etc.  Damage control drills ( from repairing battle damaged equipment to fighting plasma fires ).

Medical :  Find the injured crewman ( perhaps his/her combadge is disabled and the computer cant find the crewman)  Emergency triage drills for a ship or colony disaster. Diagnose the patient ( an unknown ailment has afflicted a crewman/passenger. could be a drill or test ).  Combat medical teams ( referring to injured personnel in ship combat that require teams to respond to the scene and stabilize victim for transport ).

Tactical:  Various ship combat sims, but also running crew readyness drills and getting faster response times.

Recreation: Model building artistic endeavours ( painting : would'nt it be nice to put something up on that blank wall of your assigned quarters? sculpting, also as suggested music. Sports ( Intership olympic games?? ) Designing clothes ( do you always want to wear that uniform on shoreleave all the time?  Swimming : racing or relaxing?  Public speaking:  giving a lecture on the prime directive?

Science: This is a huge area, I'll try and cover this one later.
 
Mini-games. Hmm.

Well if you look at you characters main tasks, and what to apply mini games for, i could imagine a wide variety of ideas. Some ideas that could be made into mini games IMO:
Operating on a damaged brain.
Ops/Tactical: Find the cloaked ship.
Ops: Scan for lifesigns.
Security: Locate intruder.
Security: Neutralize intruder.
Ops/Transporter crew: Transport away team to <location>.
Command: Away team: shutdown warp core
Engineering: Optimize matter/antimitter reaction
Engineering: Purge impulse manofolds
Engineering: Replace EPS conduit
1st officer: Manage the departments. Tough job.
Captain: Whatever you want to get the job done
Helm: Navigate the nebula/asteroid field whatever
Helm: Evasive maneuvers
Helm: Give tactical a clear shot

Loads of stuff really. And thats just the main tasks, what about the hobbies?


I think that stuff should be full-games, not min-games.  Just for the record.  Some great ideas, too.  Hobbies as many games, jobs as actual deep fun rewarding gameplay, every bit as compelling as combat.

Operating on a damaged brain.
Ops/Tactical: Find the cloaked ship. - Can you see the Romulan in this picture?
Ops: Scan for lifesigns. - Life forms ... /sings
Security: Locate intruder. - One of these things is not liek the other ...
Security: Neutralize intruder. - Lysol works best
Ops/Transporter crew: Transport away team to <location>. - Tribbles?
Command: Away team: shutdown warp core - Oopsise I ejected it!
Engineering: Optimize matter/antimitter reaction - KABOOM!
Engineering: Purge impulse manofolds - Why are they all blinking??
Engineering: Replace EPS conduit - Anyone seen the thingamajig?
1st officer: Manage the departments. Tough job. - Get my coffee!
Captain: Whatever you want to get the job done - Get my latte!
Helm: Navigate the nebula/asteroid field whatever - Which way is left?
Helm: Evasive maneuvers - Go left!  No right!  Straight!  Aw crud ...
Helm: Give tactical a clear shot - Down in front!

Loads of stuff really. And thats just the main tasks, what about the hobbies?

I would like to see diplomacy as a minigame ala Vanguard.
