Live Long and Prosper: Applicants Queue Up In London’s Financial District To Apply For The Best Job In The Universe
RECRUITMENT DRIVE HOSTED BY MANPOWER UK IN ASSOCIATION WITH PARAMOUNT HOME MEDIA DISTRIBUTION
This morning at zero seven hundred hours (07:00AM), a temporary Starfleet Outpost popped-up at leading recruitment agency Manpower UK’s Liverpool Street based offices. Trekkers from around the country queued up to apply for a once in a light year role as Starfleet Vice-Admiral*.
Over 200 ambitious commanders looking to make their mark on the fringes of known space registered their interest to take part in the recruitment process and complete the ultimate Star Trek test.
The test, designed by die hard Star Trek fan and Empire Online editor-in-chief, James Dyer, determined if candidates had what it took to run a state-of-the-art Starbase and included questions like, ‘Under Captain Kirk, who served as the Enterprise’s chief medical officer?’ The test was administered by Manpower’s team of recruiters.
The candidate who scores most highly and proves themselves able to take command of Starbase Yorktown, will receive an official uniform recently used in the production of Star Trek Beyond and a VIP visit to Paramount Studio Lot in Los Angeles.
