Re: What Starfleet position would you aim for? (Choose up to 3)
Is command something you can obtain out of Starfleet or something you work into from other positions?
There's a Command School at the Academy. I might be wrong, but I've always taken it that one would sort of major/minor in the schools. A few examples:
Spock dual-majored in Science and Command. Scotty majored in Engineering and dual minored in Command and Security. Data majored in Operations and minored in Command - which is why Shelby leapfrogged him for the Executive Officer's position in BOBW: she majored in Command, and minored in Tactics. Etc and so on.
As the brilliant philosopher once said... Everybody, have fun tonight. Everybody, Wang Chung tonight.
