I never saw the point of having The Academy and Star Trek Online General Discussion.

An analysis of the current Shipyards reveals that there is barely a full page worth of threads of active topics throughout a day, when you put the two shipyards together. Strongly re-consider sticking to the original proposal of only 1 shipyard.
Keep in mind the sticky threads goes away to the Academy or Guide section, whichever you settle on, opening up more room for regular threads to be on the Front Page, makes room for 25 threads on the front page.

The original idea was fewer sections, don't backtrack on that.

So, it would seem to me to remove "Builds" from the forum title and just leave it as "Powers and Game Mechanics".

Alternatively, make it more clear: "Game Mechanics, Powers, and Captain Builds"

?
CmdrScarlet has a valid point. There are undoubtedly going to be ship build discussions in the Shipyard, even though it may be intended to be more about feedback regarding the visuals and performance of ships.

A rename to Powers and mechanics may be warranted.

I've got no issues with the currently proposed organization.

Will the forums go down to implement it? If so, when?

I'd be more inclined to search for the content I wanted if it was structured as follows:

.PVE Gameplay
..Federation
..Klingon
..Romulan
.PVP Gameplay
..PvP Boot Camp
.Starship Builds, Powers, and Game Mechanics
..PVE
..PVP
..Link to Academy Guides
.Ground Builds, Powers, and Game Mechanics
..PVE
..PVP
..Link to Academy Guides

However, I feel child sub-forums can be hard to see if they are mixed with regular topics, such as in the current PVP gameplay section. The PVP boot camp forum almost gets overlooked by me when visiting because its above the forum-wide announcements section and way before the topics present in the PVP forum.

A lot of the individual forums are cluttered with a large number of stickied threads at the top. Perhaps a new topic- Stickied Threads- could be created, and all of the stickies (and future stickies) moved there?

Ideally most of those stickied threads gets dumped in the Academy/Player Guides section. And only super critically life or death important threads remain.
