From the Star Fleet Academy Exam, Part 2

The whole thing is rather long, so I'll pull some questions each week until you have the whole thing. Keep it under wraps or they'll change it!

Instructions: Read each question carefully. Answer all questions. Time limit: 4 hours. Begin immediately. If you finish early, turn your paper in at the table at the front of the room.

Public Speaking: 2500 drug-crazed (aren't they always?) Klingons are about to storm the classroom. Calm them and make them return to Klinshai. You may use any ancient language except Klingon, Latin, or Greek.

Biology: Create inorganic life. Estimate the differences in subsequent Romulan culture if this form of life had developed 500 million years earlier, with special attention to its probable effect of the Human English Parliamentary system of the 20th century. Prove your thesis.

Music: Write a piano concerto. Perform it with an Andorian organ and Vulcan lyre. You will find a piano under your seat.

Physics: Explain the nature of anti-matter. Evaluate the impact of mathematics on science.

More next week!
