If Starfleet was a reality today, you entered and graduated from the Academy, which department/position would you want to be in?

I choose Engineering because I like to tinker with, build, design, and fix things.
I'm just waiting 4 my Starship to come in...

I would need to be in command. I'm a fairly good leader but a terrible follower.

Ugh... I wouldn't even make it through the Academy (I wouldn't even try to)... I hate to follow someone else's orders (especially if I think they're wrong)... :hug: However, working aboard a starship still sounds good to me... as a bartender, waitress or something... like Ben... the guy that appeared on TNG's "Lower Decks" - I could be friends with all the senior officers. :hug:

I'd like to form my own department - the Fabulous Department, with their own pink uniforms. Special duties to include beaming down to boring planets and jazzing them up, livin la vie la loca honey

Security.
For many reasons, really. Opportunity for advancement, a spot on most landing parties, cool red shirt (TOS), and I'll admit I'm a lot better with my fists and a hand phaser than trying to figure out a 10,000-year old alien computer, or reversing polarity.

They didn't really have a military intelligence department other than Section 31 or security but if they did I would do that at first, then work up to command.
Religion doesn't seem to work like [the scientific method]; it has certain ideas at the heart of it which we call sacred or holy or whatever. That's an idea we're so familiar with, whether we subscribe to it or not, that it's kind of odd to think what it actually means. Really what it means is "Here is an idea or a notion that you're not allowed to say anything bad about. You're just not. Why not? Because you're not!" - Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, "This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant!" Instead they say, "No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way!" - Carl Sagan, author and astronomer

We must question the story logic of having an all-knowing all-powerful God, who creates faulty Humans, and then blames them for his own mistakes. - Gene Roddenbery, creator of Star Trek

I tend to agree with Mrs.Picard. I'd like to be on a starship, but not necessarily in Starfleet. Either a teacher, or a archivist or perhaps work in updating the ship's research library files.

Either engineering or one of the sciences. Perhaps the medical field. Either one of those gets you in the spotlight often enough... :)

I'd go for Engineering or JAG- and try for a command position at some point.

I'd pick tactical/security. That's whats always interested me, just being a regular tactical or security officer.

Since I am a lawyer, it would have to be in Star Fleet's J.A.G. I suppose I'd wear red and travel round ships, reading materials and preparing for hearings. I'd probably have an office at Star Fleet command or on a regional Starbase, depending on where/ In which region I would be responsible for prosecuting in. I would probably receive requests at my office for hearings from Captains with a problem crew-member or so forth, and would make a preliminary decision on whether or not there is enough evidence to require a hearing.

I think it would be fun because I would get to meet lots of new people which I love doing. Also, I like to travel. In my real life job I travel to different courts and meet different lawyers, clients and so forth each week and spend time in my office which is my private get away.

Being a helmsman would be a cool position with the possiblity of going after a command position later...

I'd love to be in Command, maybe as a helmsman before advancing.

But I'd probably be in Science, probably biology.
