You know, I actually have a good idea for this.
One of my Characters is a Starfleet Academy Field Instructor, and any Cadets assigned to her for their Fourth Year spend the
year on her ship (an Odyssey Tactical Cruiser), being taught by her and her Senior Officers. And since she is basically a Drill Sergeant From Hell, she tends to run her students into the ground. If they survive the year-long tour of duty, they can graduate without the need for a Final Graduation Exam. And if they
her, they might graduate early, and even become permanent members of her crew.
Anyway, she has a tradition of greeting each class as they embark, delivering what is essentially a Commencement Speech. With a few minor modifications, I could probably use one of those speeches for this challenge.
