Level 1

Notice to all users of the Holodeck:

There are safety protocols in place that cannot be deactivated without the approval of two commanding officers or the captain to protect users of the Holodeck from potential harm. However, every time the Holodeck is ever used in a nontrivial manner, no matter what the safety protocols say, the Holodeck turns into a deathtrap.

Unless you believe yourself to be adept at constructing a forcefield from your communicator and 19th century Earth tools, or you're at the very least not wearing a red shirt, you are strongly advised not to attempt to use the Holodeck until a designer comes up with a safety protocol that doesn't kill you whenever somebody looks at it funny. Even when you're not on the holodeck. Or in the same quadrant. Or time period.

In fact, if you are wearing a red shirt, Starfleet may not be the job for you

The first level of the arcane are menu items in programs.
Level two are keyboard shortcuts.
Level three are command line programs.
Level four is learning to hook command line programs together.
Level five is regular expressions and other concentrated ASPs.
Level six is batch files and other simple scripting/macro languages.
Level seven spells are basic computer programs, be it C Java or ASM.
Level eight spells are advanced algorithmics and techniques.
Level nine spells are entire operating systems, compilers and other powerful grimiors.
