SRS Josh Bee Academy
The Special Reconnaissance Squadron Academy Fleet was formed in 2013 as a way to introduce new players to the game and to our fleet. By spending a little time in the Academy Captains can easily accumulate fleet credits as all the big spenders are in the main fleet. They can also see if they like the SRS structure by taking part in events and getting involved in our cross fleet chat channel SRS Armada. It also gives us a chance to evaluate new candidates for the fleet to ensure that they are the ‘right stuff’ for SRS. The Academy was renamed after the passing of our good friend Josh Bee, or JB as everyone knew him, early in 2017. JB was severely disabled yet managed to play Star Trek Online and other games very well, often beating far more able bodied captains with his intelligence, sharp wit and dogged determination. JB is sorely missed.
HOW IT WORKS
All new recruits are invited to join the Academy and once joined they are expected to earn 100,000 fleet credits and spend at least two weeks probationary period in the Academy. Once they have satisfied those most basic of requirements they are able to move to the main fleet where they will be promoted to Fleet Captain which has rights to purchase anything from our provisioned stores.
Some captains prefer to stay in the Academy to help new recruits, if they do this they are promoted to Professor or higher, if they wish to purchase something from one of our Tier 5 stores they are quickly moved to the main fleet to accommodate this, sometimes an invite is all that is required rather than a full move.
SRS Academy is a fast growing fleet with 200+ members at time of writing. This is always fluctuating as new members join daily and others leave to join other SRS Fleets. If you would like to join our Academy see our joining page for more information.
