FLAG OFFICER SCHOOL
Flag Officer School (FOS) is the third College installment within the Leadership Track at STARFLEET Academy. FOS will further expand the student's knowledge of STARFLEET as an organization, with an emphasis on the commissioned flag officer. The concept of FOS is to focus on how STARFLEET is configured as an organization, the fundamentals of leadership, and what it means to command. Officer Command College (OCC) is a prerequisite for Flag Officer School.
Course is free via email. For postal mail, a SASE (Self Addressed Stamped Envelope) and one (1) loose First-Class postage stamp is required.

FOS-202 - Region Dynamics
FOS-203 - Fleet Dynamics
The 300-level essay exams allow the student to pick specific "Positions of Notable Responsibility" within STARFLEET. When the student requests their respective course, he/she will notify the Director of their essay topic; this topic would be a problem, real or fictional, that would need to be resolved within the "Position of Notable Responsibility" chosen. All available resources in STARFLEET are at the student's disposal. Where no references exist, the student will use logic and common sense to solve the problem. All references used need to be sited within the essay.
Essays will be written from the perspective of the student and will have that student assuming the respective position of responsibility in SFI. They are to be a minimum of two (2) full pages (500 words) covering your problem and the solution. Each page will be no more than one (1) inch (2.5 cm) on the top/bottom and the left/right for the margins, the font should be a normal type (Arial, Calibri, Times New Roman, etc.) with a point setting no larger than twelve (12), and line spacing should not be any larger than double-space.
