Career agents - a view from the capsule

After completing Seeker Investigation Vladimir Korff enrols in State War Academy in Uitra in order to explore various career paths. He takes Business, Exploration, Industry and Military courses supervised by career agents. Some of them he will like, some of them he will hate - I mean both, courses and teachers. He also finds that not all of the missions, strictly speaking, fit the curriculum. Some agents use them as an opportunity to tighten system security, some - to improve the Academy’s budget bottom line, and yet others - to further their personal interests.

Here is the list of chapters describing the adventures of Vladimir Korff and his boisterous ship AI Aura in State War Academy. The mission names (or descriptions) are mentioned in parenthesis where they are different from the chapter names.

Yes, I thought the mission grinding was dull and imagined a story behind it.
