What a fun story! It kept me engaged for the whole read. I love that Travis is getting a chance to develop command skills, and using sims makes sense. I will admit, though, that at first I thought this was going to be a predecessor of the Kobyashi Maru test, but this story is much better.
I also liked the sense of the officers dividing up, Malcolm and Hoshi against Travis and Trip. Then to find out that Archer and T'Pol were aware of what ws going on -- LOL!
Cute ending, too!
Travis is a pretty underused character, and I thought it would be nice to give him the spotlight. And it makes sense that they'd be working on their command skills to qualify for their next rank (like the real military). Archer considered Travis one of his proteges, in a sense.

Loved it. What a great story. Nice to see the crew have Travis's back even when it's only a sim. He'll make a great captain someday.
Thanks for the read.
Yeah, Travis is often overlooked, but he's an integral part of the crew. And I agree he'll make a good captain, with his personality and experience.
