The New Academy Schedule and System

The STSF GM Council, in consultation with the GM staff, has decided to retire four of our regularly scheduled Academy simulation games. The two remaining Academies will be Tuesdays at 9:00 PM ET and Saturdays at 12:00 Midnight ET. These changes will take effect immediately.


Alternative Training Opportunity

We have heard from many prospective players that they are unable to attend the Academies, but do have time in their schedule to attend Advanced Sims. Therefore, we will begin offering "In Sim Training," during some Advanced games; check with the GM team for an Advanced game if you are interested in this training option.



Here are the basic requirements:

  1. The new player watches silently (to the screen) for two weeks. The GMs will perform a quick debrief at sims' end to answer questions (as well as be available for questions in private message during the games).
  2. The player will then "come aboard" as a non-officer crewman for at least two sims. They may be promoted to Ensign at any point after these two additional games, but it may not happen after just two weeks. This is completely at the discretion of the Advanced Sim's command team. The GM team is also within their rights to let a prospective player know that it will not work out on their sim and they are free to look elsewhere. None of these steps are open to negotiation or open for J.A.G./peer review.
  3. Any player that has successfully joined an Advanced game with this method will not be available for a transfer or additional duties on another Advanced game for 3 months. In addition, there is a limit to the number of concurrent sims that such a new player can participate in. They can only be a member of two sims for their first 6 months of gameplay.
