Survival Strategies was a course offered at Starfleet Academy. In the 2360s its instructors included Admiral Owen Paris and Professor Zakarian.
Zakarian taught the course to future USS Voyager crewmembers Harry Kim and B'Elanna Torres. He was known to them as old sneezy for his many allergies. (VOY: "Caretaker")
The course was also taken by Tom Paris. He received a B- with his father as the instructor, proving Admiral Paris played no favorites with his son. (VOY: "Parturition")
Chakotay also took the course and years later remembered surprise tactical simulations which involved "getting dropped off in the woods with no chance to prepare". (VOY: "Displaced")
