Ok, I've bounced this off a few people, and the response seems to be pretty good, so it's time to go public. :)
The Galactic Academy is a studentís dream come true: a twelve square mile complex outfitted with dozens of labs, theaters, stadia, gymnasia, large individual dorm rooms, and a 10:1 student to faculty ratio leading to no scheduled classes. Those alone might cause many students to drool uncontrolably. But, there is more. The Galactic Academy not only offers a chance to study with some of the top faculty in the known universe, it travels from system to system, planet to planet. Why simply study Artemisian archaeology from books when the universityís stopping at Artemis next month? Whatís the best way to learn Furyan? The university will be orbiting Fury for the next two weeks while its capacitors recharge, practice with the locals.
The Galactic Academy is housed in a converted luxury liner, replaced long ago. For the last sixty years it has been the educational playground of the elite. In fact, only in the last two decades have middle and lower class students been accepted (or able to afford the school without joining the ROTC or military), thanks to a few score scholarships and an endowment from well-off alumni.
Since I already have 4-5 interested parties, I'll request a board within the next couple hours and will post a link here ASAP.
