Prove yourself in the Empty Epsilon Starship Bridge Simulator!
You will have to work in a team to command an Atlantis Class starship in a live, real-time computer simulation of a hostile encounter with alien factions.
Please note that there are age restrictions on participants: 12+ if a parent is playing. 16+ if playing unaccompanied.
Each simulation requires six recruits to fill the bridge team roles, these will be assigned during your session but can be summarised as follows:
CAPTAIN – has no direct control of the ship, the Captain keeps the crew focused on their goal and makes tactical decisions in combat.
HELM – flies the ship, controlling heading, speed, docking and combat manoeuvres as well as the warp drive.
WEAPONS – controls all combat elements of the ship including shields, targeting, beam weapons and missiles.
ENGINEERING – controls the power management of the ship and dispatching repair crews.
SCIENCE – controls the sensors and has access to the ship computer should more information be needed.
RELAY – controls communications, launches probes and has access to the Sector Map.
