Many cadets enter Starfleet Academy with high hopes, boundless aspirations, and plan to excel in their field wherever possible. The vast majority proceed to do just that. But very few seem to give consideration to what happens after their time in Starfleet, after their career has reached its peak.

It’s well into the 25th century (or even the 26th). Your character is a captain, or perhaps even an admiral, and for whatever reason, they have decided to finally retire from the active fleet. They are still in relatively good health, and despite technological advancements and the usual political and social machinations that have always presented threats the the United Federation of Planets, our great civilization has enjoyed an unprecedented period of relative peace and calm. Without the weight of those pips, they are free- free to do what they will in a galaxy seething with opportunity.

This week's poll asks how your character would spend that time? Would they focus on family, settling down to be among loved ones in waning years? Would they explore on their own, seeing parts of the galaxy they hadn’t been to during their tenure in the fleet? Maybe they’d consult for Starfleet, or teach at the Academy. Or perhaps they’d enter the private sector- leaving Starfleet might not be the end. Give us your vote, and explain away in the comments section!

I definitely think Quentin would probably teach somewhere. Or go into some kind of fiction writing. I actually personally have this half formed pitch of an adventure serial set in the Trek universe in a notebook somewhere so i could see him writing those as holonovels or plays.

While I'm not sure Trellis would ever actually leave Starfleet, if he ever did he'd want to explore the areas of space that aren't Federation territory. He'd most like to see parts of the Romulan Empire and would figure out some way to consult with them on something technology related.

You mean "borrow" without their knowledge ;)

Maddi is a talented Martial Artist so unless something changed her mind and thoughts she would love to teach at the Academy. Martial Arts is her gift, in fact, any combat is and if she could better Cadets for their time in Starfleet that's what she would do!
