The interior of Command School in Ender's Game (Film).

Command School was an International Fleet training facility, located inside the Sol System asteroid Eros.[1]

Description

The facility consisted of a labyrinth of winding tunnels and low ceilings, created by the Formics during the Second Invasion. The average age a child would be sent to Command School was 16, but Ender Wiggin was sent there prematurely at the age of 10.

History

Creation

Command School was organized along with the other International Fleet Schools after Mazer Rackham demanded it.[2] The International Fleet decided to put Command School inside the Formic tunnels, with some renovations. Its location was made a secret to the general public, and even ship pilots who traveled to Eros to drop off passengers were required to stay there to keep the secret.[1]

Ender's Game

Ender Wiggin was sent to Command School as the Third Invasion neared to command the human fleets. He trained for about a year along with his jeesh, and later ended the war with the Formics.[1]

Ender in Exile

With the threat of the Formics gone, the need to keep Eros a secret was gone. The colonists being sent to the abandoned Formic planets stopped at Eros during their journey.[3]
