Personal Log: Cadet Corbin, Terran Stellar Navy Academy
I finally arrived in my dormitory quarters at the TSN Academy today. I have a great view outside of Fort Mason historical landmark, along the San Francisco bay. According to family genealogical records, I had an ancestor in the early 20th century embark from here to Asia, captaining a battleship during the Second World War. Three centuries later, I am going to eventually embark into the unexplored regions of the galaxy.
Before I was allowed into my dormitory, I had to surrender my civilian clothing and was presented with my TSN-issued cadet uniform. Next, myself and the other raw cadets were shuttled to the medical bay, where we were given a complete physical and mental evaluation.
Once in the dormitory, I was introduced to my bunk-mates, enterprising young men mostly from Terra. There are a couple of cadets from colonies outside the Sol System. We immediately begun to fraternize; cracking jokes and explaining why we enlisted. I felt embarrassed to say that my both my parents once served as Captains, and I have spent my entire life hearing about the Terran Stellar Navy.
Our shooting the breeze was quickly interrupted by the appearance of our Dormitory Officer, who made us stand at attention before our bunks. For the next hour, we were instructed on how to fold away and store our few allowed personal belongings. As well, the Dormitory Officer showed us how our bunks are supposed to be folded promptly every morning before roll-call.
I have been told this first week of Academy will mostly focus on In-Processing. Following will be Confidence-Building, Hands-On Learning, Live Fire, Career, Damage Control, Battle Stations and finally Graduation. This week we were told to expect multiple hours of conditioning, swimming, marching and drilling.
Finally, we were taken downstairs to enroll in classes. I have an interest in Helm and Weapons, and honestly Captain, so I signed up for Astrogation, Flight Control, Stellar Cartography, Tactical Analysis and Warp Theory. My two electives will be Ancient Philosophies and Video Transmission Production.
I have been told that I will be assigned to the 2nd Fleet, 4th Light Division. Already, I have received transmissions from current officers inviting me for shift observation.
The day ended with dinner in the mess hall. There was general excitement buzzing about in the air, but our conversation eventually shifted into whispers of Kralien and Skaraan brutality. The Dormitory Officer noticed this and scolded us for “that kind of demoralizing talk.”
Lights out is quickly approaching, so I should finish this personal log. I do not want to be chewed out by the Dormitory Officer my very first day.

The Duty Officer (myself) or Assistant Duty Officer (Nhaima) will review also review your interface protocols to ensure a smooth entry into your new assignment. If you wish to review these protocols before stardate 15417-2237, you may send a private communique to myself and I will try to establish communications with you before then.

I highly recommend that before applying the TSN-specific protocols that you copy your base version to another location and then apply the protocols to the copy.
