The Bridge of the Farpoint Jumpship Discovery at American Heritage School Takes Shape
Alex Debirk and team are busily installing the furniture, lights, and other fixtures into the school's new Jumpship Discovery. When in launches in January, the Discovery will join the other Farpoint fleet of jumpships: Voyager and Titan located at The Space Place at Renaissance Academy, the Hyperion at Telos Academy, and the Galileo also at American Heritage.
There are a Few More Young Astronaut and Voyager Squadrons to Meet
I'd like you to meet a few more of our Young Astronaut and Voyager Club Squadrons at Renaissance Academy's The Space Place. These are a few of the squadrons that met this week.
We're in our second and third round of meetings. In their 3rd round meeting, cadets spend one hour voyaging the depths of space on their 8 month mission, afterwards Major Vidinah (RA's middle school science teacher) from Starfleet Command puts them through 30 minutes of team building exercises. Astronomy and Space Science lessons from Admiral Williamson (yours truly) finishes their 2 hour meeting.
It's all happening at Starbase Williamson. Six of the greatest ships in the fleet launch from there: The Magellan, Cassini, Phoenix, Odyssey, Falcon, and Galileo. The food in the Staff Room is worthy of extending your stay between postings and launchings. The restrooms are the cleanest in the quadrant. The Promenade is unique in design complete with liquid oozing tiles and multicolored lightning effects - all installed to add to the visual delight of our Starfleet officers as they traverse from docking port to docking port. And virtually anyone who is anyone currently walks or has walked the decks.
You'll find Starbase Williamson at the Christa McAuliffe Space Center.
On a more personal note, I'm pleased and honored to have my name on the part of the Christa McAuliffe Space Center where the magic of imagination comes alive every day for scores of students, teachers, and our patrons who visit us for private parties. The wonderful logo making the W in Williamson, along with the entire sign itself, was designed by one of the Space Center's own - Mason Perry. It took several iterations and back and forth emails between Mason, myself, and James Porter before we settled on the sign you see.
