    What are some of the billets that new ensigns can take directly out of the academy? And what does the day to day look like for those?

    I know some of the options (flight school, cutters etc), but what, for example, does a junior officer so if they want to specialize in law enforcement?

    Generally, straight out of CGA you'll go to a ship as a deck watch officer of a engineer officer in training, to a sector or to flight school.

    If you want to do LE, don't got to flight school. You don't "specialize" in it, but you'll get training at a sector or on a cutter.

    Check out the link below to read more about what that first unit can be like.

    The master list was distributed within the CGA community but I'm not sure if I can release it here.

    I'll follow up and post it if I find out it's authorized.
