Couple of quick questions:

1. Where is this required reading?
2. You mentioned "overtime", but how long is the "scheduled" time supposed to be?
3. For the space PvP boot camp, you had an intro to spvp that was supposed to be read. Is there something like that for the ground portion, or sure the required reading topics for each month?

Not Really Known
 
I think there has been only a small amount of applications due to the fact that this event hasn't been advertised clearly to the players of Star Trek Online. I, for example, only found out today due to a friend of mines.

The required readings for the next 3 months have not been posted yet.

The scheduled time is 90 minutes.

The monthly required readings are all you need to read for each session. The first one covers the same type of basic information that the space bootcamp reading covered, although the content is of course very different.

fireblazersword: you are correct. Space boot camp got several cross-linked threads in the main pvp forum, two blog posts on the STO front page and launcher, a forum/ingame mail blitz, and at least one shoutout on Priority One. Ground apparently only gets a couple of threads buried in a subforum of a subforum.

Maybe I am missing something, but the event is in a few days, and I don't see the link for the first required reading...

Edit- I see it now. Perhaps it could be linked in the OP where it states the required reading?


All times are GMT -7. The time now is 01:18 AM.
