Sometimes, life at Starfleet Academy isn't all it's cracked up to be, especially for command cadet Randy Duke.
- "It was a courageous move, Cadet, to usurp command like that. You moved into the Neutral Zone, you evaded a great number of enemy vessels in what was sure to be a brave attempt to reach that vessel."
- "Yes, sir!"
- "So what exactly did you think you were accomplishing, other than premeditated mutiny?"
- -- Commander del Toro and Cadet Leanne Norrah, discussing the results of the simulation.
- "So what? This isn't about studying. Anyone can study their brains out, but it doesn't change the fact that you're not a good captain."
- "Not yet."
- "Not ever."
- -- Cadet Norrah and Cadet Duke.
Background & NotesEdit
- Original title: "Untitled #15"
- Inspired by a lack of good Starfleet Academy stories that did not result in people dying, or taking over Earth. The intent with the short was to show a typical day for an atypical command cadet.
- Cadet Dominic Leone is the son of Captain Krystine Leone, who is featured in the sixth short, Farragut, and the short story series, Star Trek: Full Speed Ahead.
