I don't think an Ocampan can live long enough to complete Starfleet Academy... :p

Starfleet academy takes four years, so they obviously can. However, getting past Lieutenant senior grade rank will be a difficult task.

However, I'd have luv'd to see playable Aenar first before any Delta species like Ocumpa or Talaxians.

# 13 Ocampans at the Academy

Well, it was stated that to compensate for their short lifespans, the Ocampans have an accelerated ability to learn knowledge.

So an Ocampan might not necessarily spend the same amount of time in the Academy that a longer lived individual would.

At a rough estimate, they'd be at the academy for 5-6 months, perhaps even half that time.

There's the Project Chrysalis assignment chain that coughs up Telekinetic humans as a result. My first wasn't a security officer, but you could get lucky.

I would certanly support having Ocampa DOFFs with Eididic Memory, Telekinetic, and Telepathic traits!

For lorewise, it was mentioned several times that Ocampa could live to and sometimes past 20 before the arrival of the Carktaker(s).

More recently, Susperia's Ocampa lived past 20 years and had greatly enhanced telepathic and telekinetic abilities.

Susperia's Ocampa? Was that an episode of Voyager? It's been a long time since I've seen it.

Found another one:

Unorthodox Warp Core Engine Recovery Simulations.

This time it wants a Matter-Antimatter Specialist, a Technician or a Warp Core Engineer with telekinetic powers.

Maybe they should remove these missions until we get actual Ocampa crewmembers?

I'm pretty sure it's intended that you can't always get perfect traits on every assignment

Yes, I know.

But traits aren't the issue here.

I know from bitter experience everytime I've given a job to an officer who doesn't match the job requirements, it increases the chance of failure.

And since the Telekinetics will never match the job requirement, from my point of view, there's no point even starting the assignment.
