Welcome from the Sixth Space Lord

Welcome to the beginning of your journey in the Honorverse. This student manual is your passport to an interesting, educational, and fun experience. The material included in this manual is the result of hundreds of hours of work by the staff of BuTrain. Please take time to explore through it and find out what is available for you.

Through these courses members will be introduced to the study of History, Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Leadership. The various courses are written to broaden your knowledge, using the Honorverse as a medium to make it not only educational but fun as well. They give students the opportunity to explore not only the Honorverse but the background ideas that went into making the books possible. We have several Academies that broadly cover the different branches by function.

The Grand Alliance Naval Academy covers the branches that are Navies, and contains Saganami Island Academy (RMN), Isaiah Mackenzie Naval Academy (GSN), and Prinz Adalbert Marineakademie (IAN). The Ground Forces Training Command covers the two ground based branches Royal Manticoran Marine Corps Training Command (RMMMC), King Roger I Military Academy (RMA).

The Grand Alliance University System contains the Academies that cover the Civilian side of TRMN and Gryphon Planetary University which is where our leadership training occurs. The Civilian Academies include Star Kingdom University (Civilian), Sphinx Forestry Academy (for our youth members and SFC members), and the Civilian Space Services Academy that does coursework for the Merchant Marine and Astro Control branches. Some of the courses have prerequisites, but apart from that you can take courses from any academy that you wish. Regardless of your interests I’m sure you will find many things that will be interesting, educational, and enjoyable.

The reference materials, including the recommended reading lists, can form the foundation of a lifelong learning program. A lifelong learning program can lead to a fuller and richer quality of life and should not only include the topics of history, science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and leadership, but also the appreciation of the arts, music, and community service.

Again, welcome to the Honorverse and BuTrain, your gateway to a fun learning experience.

For the Honor of the Queen and in Memory of Commodore Saganami.
