The Magistracy Institute for Strategic Studies was a Magistracy of Canopus academy for WarShip crews.[1]


The Magistracy Institute for Strategic Studies or MISS was one of two aerospace academies to be founded by the Magistracy of Canopus during the Star League era. The MISS began operating in 2730 and was an academy dedicated to WarShip training. The MISS had two facilities, one ground-based and one space-based; the ground-based facility was located close to the Thistledown Fields spaceport, while the space-based facility was based on a space station attached to the Diamond Garter Shipyards, a sprawling shipyard complex in orbit above Canopus IV.[1]


Military courses offered by MISS were known to include a comprehensive WarShip program.[1]


  • The MISS is not detailed in any sourcebook covering events after the Star League era, suggesting that it was disabled, destroyed or shut down during the Succession Wars.
