Flight school[edit | edit source]
Union Point emphasized flight instruction in its flight school. Marcos had worked as a flight instructor. (He later became Captain of the USS Roosevelt.) One of Marcos' students was the promising young Ed Mercer, who graduated top of his class.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Ed received a B-plus in temporal theory, which he defended by pointing out that no one got an A in the subject since nobody really understood time travel.
- Kelly Grayson recalled an anecdote from her time at Union Point, drinking all night and reporting for duty the next morning. She was still tipsy when the ship she was on broke gravity on Rhealon 4. As she was not buckled in, she went sliding down the corridor "like a luge", which she found really fun.
- Kelly told Ed and Darulio that during her student years she overheard Professor Fincher bragging to a bunch of people about how he thought she wanted to hook up with him. Enraged, she pushed him into a pool.
- Gordon Malloy recalled taking out a shuttle with his roommate while at Union Point, which they turned into a party bus. To cover their tracks, they used a tractor beam to neutralize the shuttle's ion trail, rendering them completely invisible - only to be caught after the shuttle plowed into a tree when they had attempted to land.
- Gordon and Orrin Channing attended flight school together.
