With every Scout using a separate computer to control different departments on a Starship, you'll work together to fly and successfully navigate through a mission.


Welcome to our virtual simulator of a Starship, where you can learn how the different departments work together. What, you were expecting a real Starship? You're not quite ready for that! But you will be able to see what it's like to command and control the departments in order to get your ship to boldly go to new regions of space!


Cadets, this training module will test your ability to work as a team. Once upon a time, the Kobayashi Maru was used to test an individual's response to a no-win scenario. We have improved our training standards, because the most important measure of a cadet's ability to succeed, is how well they can work together with others. You'll get to fly a virtual Starship... but only if you can get all the stations supporting each other. Choose your field of expertise from Navigation, Weapons, Engineering, Communications, Damage Control, and the "Main View".


As a Patrol, work out which Scout will control what Starship department (one person per computer). Follow the instructions from your Starfleet instructors and the computer console to complete your mission
