- Welcome to the Academy
Welcome to the Academy Campus! Here is where we hold any active discussions that are relevant to the Academy as well as host our two main mentoring programs. We offer mentoring for both new members and for members who would like some coaching as they move up to Department Head, First Officer and Captain. We are still very much in the process of updating this MOTD, so please do be patient and we would appreciate any feedback you have for us!
- Academy Fleet
- For the brand new STF member, we offer hands-on roleplaying areas: the USS Endeavour and the USS Challenger. Here new players get to roleplay in a protective atmosphere, with the best DH's, XO's and CO's in the club, and where the only stupid question is the one not asked.
- Current Academy Discussions
- None at the moment, we are in the middle of a term transition!
- Academy Courses
We currently offer courses in the six major roleplaying areas: Counseling, Engineering, Medical, Science, Security and Command (in the form of a DH, XO and a CO course). Each course is self-paced, so you can take as long as you want to finish it. Completing the course will allow you to gain the fundamental knowledge necessary to add dimension to your roleplaying.
A GM course is also available; all GM hopefuls must pass this course before they proceed to one of the GM training programs run by the Gamemaster Department. This course provides the basics of good story development and helps students build the foundations of a successful sim.
We also offer an administrative menu course, which takes you through all the cool functions of the admin menu (which you gain access to typically once you make XO in the club). There is no exam and tutor for the course, but if you have questions with its content, please contact the Academy.
NOTE: No course is required for graduation from the academy. All are optional, unless you wish to become a GM, in which case you will be required to complete the GM course and exam.
To take a course, take a look at the Academy Courses.
Each course tutor is responsible for their respective course content and for the marking. IF a course tutor position is vacant, the exams will be graded by the Academy Staff. If you have any questions or comments about a course, please contact the respective course tutor. Course submissions should be marked within 14 days. If they have not been marked within that time, please email the Academy.
The current Course Tutors are:
Counseling: Tyra Schroll
Engineering: Robert Archer
Gamemaster: Gene Gibbs
Medical: Steve Johnson
Science: Daniel Lerner
Security: Parisa Footohi
Command - CO: Katherine Dedul
Command - XO: David Shotton
Command - DH: Lindsay Bayes
- Command Mentorship Program
We are presently discussing mentoring on the Campus Boards, however we do have a basic process for joining the Command Mentorship Program, outlined below.
To enter the Command Mentorship Program please do the following:
- 1. Select a role DH, XO, or CO that you wish to be mentored in. This could either be a role you already have or a role that you don't have, but wish to learn to do.
- 2. Select one of the mentors below and contact them through their contact form. If they are available they will begin mentoring you for your desired role. The mentor will then contact the Academy at firstname.lastname@example.org and inform them that the mentorship relationship has begun.
- 3. If the mentor contacted is unavailable, repeat step 2.
- 4. If you are unsatisfied with your mentor for any reason, please contact the Academy at email@example.com.
- 5. The mentorship relationship continues until either party wished to end it or the mentee reaches the next level. If both parties wish the same mentor can continue mentoring at the next level. When a mentorship relationship discontinues, please contact the Academy at firstname.lastname@example.org to inform them.
E-mail email@example.com if you require any assistance and the Academy staff will help you out.
