Anyway, now is the time to make the mind up, what I want to be within the fleet. Eight branches to chose from (remember the Command branch is a branch you will be called in. I think the requirement for that is a whole bunch of badges you are wearing on your uniform, and the holes of the fixation needles of all those badges, will force you to get a new uniform anyway)
After a good hour of thinking, I decided to join the Science Branch (explore, discover and examine or whatever awaits me is the right thing for a writer as I think I am).
With this decision made my fortune sends me into another class, this time specific for the branch.
"Next class for Science Branch in 30 min. Report to Galileo classroom at elevenhundred" , it shrills out of the loudspeakers inside the main building. (For the ones not knowing elevenhundred means 11:00 o'clock).
Half an hour ? Time enough to explore the building and maybe to find the location of that Galileo classroom.
I took the elevator and pushed the button for the first floor of the HQ Building.
This floor is used for relaxation, fitness and recreation from an exhausting day in the classroom.
You can choose among running wheels, yoga mats, benches for strength training and a zen garden in a rest room.
On the next upper floor you will find the Instruction rooms DaVinci and Galileo (yeah found it). Beside that there are a few offices.
Okay what's next ? Elevator, floor number 3 and off it goes. Not much with it. Just emptiness and a wall of plywood. (Not even worth a picture).
The next floor is of more interest again, is it the medical center as it looks to be.
I can see through glass walls and doors an examination room on one side and the Sickbay at the other end of the floor. In between the doctors have their offices.
Fifth level of the building. Big room with nothing in but a object called Rezzer and above the World "Alien Exhibition" hovering. A click on the object and...................
hmmmm...........................nothing happens. Okay must be some invisible alien species I just triggered alive. Let me get out of here quick. (I can see the news headlines already: "Invasion of the Unseen - Cadet opened the door at UFS Academy and the Invisibles took over command of UFS"). >
Next upper level and I am at another level which is waiting on its purpose.
So level 7 may show more interesting things. Truly it does. I find myself in the Uniform Storage Section. One I do know already.
Number 8 level contains one of those funny rezzing objects for translucent aliens. Quickly I hit the button for level 9.
This is kind of a showroom, showing pictures of all the commanders of the Startrek Anthology.
Plus a room for Command: Visiting Officers and conference rooms.
"Class will start in 2 mins. Cadets report to Galileo Class room, immediately"
Sorry folks have to hurry. "Sir, On my way, Sir"
