Welcome to Starfleet!

We hope you're ready for the newest adventure that Scouting has to offer. Below are instructions for new recruits, and includes all information on how to plan your missions, patrols, and preparation instructions for the event.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact our team members for assistance.

Log in to the event portal to complete any outstanding payments, select your Mission Preferences, and submit Patrol Preferences.


Don't forget to make your payment for the event. Your invoice can be found by logging into the event portal, and then selecting "View/Update Registration" button. There your invoice will be available to view online or to download.

Health and Dietary information

Check that you have entered dietary information into the registration system and that both your health and dietary information is up to date on Operoo. If you have been registered for more than 48 hours and haven’t received an Operoo event notification yet please contact our team.

All participants are also required to complete the pre-event COVID screening at https://forms.office.com/r/kwuECBGrXQ using the Event ID Number 1073, no earlier than 48 hours prior to the start of the event (i.e. from Jun 30, 2022 onwards).

Selecting Missions

From the event portal, select "View/Update Mission Preferences" and follow the prompts to select your top 5 preferred activities to complete over the course of the weekend. Preferences can be nominated by members of either a Social or a Project Patrol, but note that only Project Patrols will be guaranteed to complete their top 5 preferences.

You can review the details of each Mission from the main website.

Forming Event Patrols

Joeys and Cubs will operate in Patrols of 4 to 7 youth members. From the event portal, select "View/Update Patrol Preferences" and follow the prompts to select your preferred Patrol type, and nominate those you wish to be with. Remember that those nominating Project Patrols should have identical or similar mission interests if they wish to be paired together.

Use the "View/Update Registration" form to nominate the Leader who will be attending with you.

Project Patrols will be formed primarily on their mission selections, and secondary on who they nominate to participate with.

Social Patrols will be formed primarily on their preference for who the list as their Patrol Members, and secondary on which Missions they wish to complete.

You do not have to fill every slot of your Patrol if you only have preference for a few friends. Patrols of Scouts will be filled from within their own District/Region if there are vacancies, and may even be formed beyond geographical boundaries. This allows great opportunities to make new friends.

Special Interest Area projects

Remember that if you want to complete a Special Interest Area project by participating in Star Trek Survival it is up to you to complete a Plan and present it to your Unit Council outlining what you want to achieve. We have provided advice on how to complete this process and the Mission Outcomes listed for each Mission should help you in formulating your goals.

If you are in a Project Patrol you can base your SIA plan on the Mission preferences you have entered individually. If you are in a Social Patrol we can’t guarantee everyone will get to do their individual preferences. Talk to the rest of your patrol, see what your common preferences are and use this to guide your SIA Plan.


Catering is not provided for Joeys or Cubs. Be sure to pack a lunch, snacks, and drinks for the day. A simple afternoon tea will be provided prior to departure from the site.

Arrival and departure

Patrol members will need to make their way to Mafeking Rover Park via private transport. You can arrive at Mafeking from 8:30am Saturday morning. Try to get there before 9am if you can so you don’t miss out on activity time. You will have a farewell afternoon tea at 3:30pm and will need to depart by 4pm.
