Note: Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, SCUL Prime is not currently accepting new member applications. However, please do get in touch with us so that we can contact you when we are ready to accept applications again.

SCUL flies weekly missions every Saturnight between April first and the weekend after Halloween. We take great care and effort to properly train new recruits so that we are as safe as we can be on our missions. SCUL also adheres to strict flight protocols, which makes for smooth sailing. We enjoy shore leave, climb on things, eat snacks, dance and play. We stay up vary late into the night. If you live in the Greater Boston Starcluster, and are looking for some glorious and rigorous space adventures, read on!

No Ship Required

SCUL has plenty of starships for you to choose from, and are selected on a first-come, first-serve basis. No 'civi ships' are allowed on official missions unless under very special circumstances. Don't worry: we have easy ships as well as challenging ones for all body types - your host can help you pick the right one for you. If you happen to have your own modified ship, in order to fly with the fleet it must be able to pass a rigorous preflight check.

Our Region of Space

SCUL PRIME is currently located in the Allston System, Galaxy MA.

If you happen to have access to the regions of space near the New Bedford system in Galaxy MA, point your subpsace array to the Starchasers the only other active division of SCUL.

Boot Camp

SCUL hosts training sessions a few times each season, where recruits are given basic training. SCUL boot camp accelerates the training process and therefore those who attend boot camp become SCUL pilots more quickly than those who do not.

If you are interested in attending SCUL boot camp to be trained as a SCUL starpilot, we'd love to hear from you.

The Cadet Training Process

There's a lot to learn if you want to survive in the cold dark abyss of space. The first thing you should know is that you are not alone. Cadets are paired up with a host and issued their training passport - a workbook that lays out and tracks the training process. It takes at least three full missions and some fort time to graduate: This gives SCUL time to get to know the recruit, and for the recruit to become comfortable with SCUL procedures and to get a feel for our 'SCULture'. The host works with the cadet to thoroughly train them to handle anything that comes our way.
