CO Course

Postby Alexanderia Cahill » Tue Jun 24, 2014 8:09 pm

I am interested in taking the CO Course. I was wondering who I need to contact and how I may sign up for this course. Thanks to those who reply in advance.


I have been doing star Trek simms for more than 7 years in several different fleets. And one day hope to have my own ship.

Generally in order to take the CO course one must apply for a sim within the fleet.

The exception to this is a recommendation by your sim Commanding Officer, but generally as Terris said it does coincide with Ship applications.

Actually, this brings up a good point. Is there a reason why people can't take the CO course in preparation of being a CO? Is it an issue of having too many people in the course at once? I suppose with a COs recommendation then she can take it, but I was just wondering what the reasoning is for not letting anyone just take it early.

I am currently the CMO on the Tomcat here in Pegasas Fleet and was ACMO on the Electra Commander Sterling (Captian Tava Shraall) was the CO on the Electra there. My Character name on the Electra was Christinamarie Bolt and I was a LT there. The simm address for the Electra was http://www.usselectra.starfleetuk.org

I am only trying to adavance myself and also to hopefully have a command of my own. I am a true fan of Star Trek going back the orginal series, as well as all sequeals and movies. I have been rping in Star trek simms for over 7 years.

Honestly there is nothing forbidding any player from taking the CO course without an application or ship. Generally the reason for the recommendation or having an existing ship is constraints on the Academy staff. Currently we have three instructors in the Academy so if we were seeing an influx in students priority would go to those with ships already. Does that mean a player can't sit on the waiting list? No, it just means it make take more time to get to them.

The decision ultimately lies with the Academy Commandant. Seeing as the Academy has been slow lately I don't see an issue with putting you through the course.

Best course of action would be to email him at: academy@pegasusfleet.net.

Thanks for the information everyone. I was checking to see what I needed to do to advance in rank. I love doing Star Trek Simulations and hope one day to have my own command.. I always feel the only dumb question is the one you don't ask.

Advancements are done throughout time and showing dedication to running your sim. Currently a CO begins as a Lt. Cmdr but it immediately promoted to Cmdr following completion of the CO course. After this generally a Commander will see a promotion to Captain in 6 months however this is at the discretion of the TFCO and it based on how you run your sim (an inactive commander may not get rewarded).

Thank you very much for the information. I find it to be extremely helpful. I am looking to advance as time goes on. But plan to take it one step at a time.
