Meet the USS Voyager's Firebird Squadron
|The Middle and High School Firebird Squadron|
Flight Director Maeson Busk reported a successful launch. "They did a great job, just like you'd expect from a mostly high school crew on a Long Duration Mission," Maeson remarked.
The crew sets the pace of a Long Duration Mission. They receive little or no help. Every action has a natural consequence. There is minimal interruptions from the ship's computer or chief engineer as you get in many standard field trip, camp, and party missions. The goal of an LDM is reality. For that reason, LDM missions stretch over an entire school year. The cadets experience the mission in episodes. Each episodic mission is followed several weeks later by a classroom experience where the science of the mission is explored. Squadron goals are set with teambuilding and leadership emphasized.
