From the Star Fleet Academy Final Exam

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.

History: Describe the history of the Hydran Monarchy from its origins to the present day, concentrating especially, but not exclusively, on its social, political, economic, religious, and philosophical impact on the Lyran Democratic Republic, Gorn Confederation, ISC, and the trade of tbinium. Be brief, concise, and specific.

Medicine: You have been provided with a razor blade, a piece of gauze, and a bottle of Saurian Brandy. Remove your appendix. Do not suture until your work has been inspected. NOTE: If your species does not have a veriform appendix, remove the least valuable organ of your body. Check with the instructor before performing this operation to insure it is a viable test.

Political Science: There is a red communicator on the desk beside you.Start the General War. Report at length on its socio-political effects, if any.

Epistemology: Take a position for or against truth. Prove the validity of your stand.

More next week!
